    Philanthropist, entrepreneur, fitness expert, model, motivational speaker, humanitarian, loving father and the NFL's 6-Time Pro Bowler, Terrell Eldorado Owens is a man on a mission. His extraordinary skills on the gridiron and elite athleticism raised the bar for Wide Receivers in the league. Owens is credited with being one of the most exciting and electrifying players to ever play the game, with 1078 Receptions, 15,935 yards and 153 touchdowns during the span of his 15 year career.

    Owens was born in Alexander City, AL, where he attended Benjamin Russell High School. There he excelled in several sports including football, basketball, baseball and track. After being recruited by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), Owens made a name for himself as an explosive receiver, earning first team All-Southern Conference honors and setting a school record for catching a pass 11 consecutive games.

    Owens was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1996 NFL draft, spending eight seasons with the team. He made his mark in the league by amassing a highlight reel of spectacular plays and performances. This includes a game-winning touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in a 1998 wild-card playoff games that was dubbed "The Catch II"; a record breaking day of December 17, 2000 when he surpassed the 50 year old mark for the single-game reception total; and his role in leading the 49ers to the second greatest comeback in NFL playoff history, which occurred against the New York Giants in 2002.

    In 2004 Owens joined the Philadelphia Eagles, making an immediate impact on the team, averaging one touchdown per game. This helped the Eagles to win 13 of its first 14 games, paving the way to Super Bowl XXXIX. Despite a late season injury that doctors had projected would take weeks to heal, Owens started the game and had nine receptions and 122 yards in a disappointing loss to the New England Patriots.

    Owens went on to play for the Dallas Cowboys, embarking on another storied legacy. In his first season with the team, he led the league with 13 regular season touchdowns, and this despite a serious tendon injury to his finger. While doctors recommended season ending surgery, Owens elected to wait until the end of the season to repair the damage. In 2007 he set a Dallas Cowboys record with 15 touchdown receptions and helped lead the team to the NFC East divisional title for the first time since 1988. He also amassed 69 catches for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns in his last season for the Dallas Cowboys. Owens entered his 14th NFL season with the Buffalo Bills. It was in this season that he became only the sixth player to record 1,000 career catches. He also added stints with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Seattle Seahawks to his resume.

    Owens has garnered countless awards and accolades for his work on and off the field, including six Pro Bowl appearances, five-time Associated Press All-Pro, Recorded Five Seasons with 13 or more touchdowns, and the first to score a touchdown in seven straight "Monday Night Football" games. On September 15, 2008 in yet another remarkable Monday Night Game, Owens moved into second place on the NFL's all-time career touchdown list.

    Owens' work on the field is only mirrored by his accomplishments off the field, including partnering with the Alzheimer's Association, which is near and dear to his heart. His beloved grandmother Alice succumbed to the disease three years ago. He also testified before Congress to raise awareness about the disease.

    Owens is also a respected and best-selling author, penning a children's book, Little T Learns to Share, and a fitness book, T.O.'s Finding Fitness. His latest endeavor, the What TO Do Global Campaign, is an initiative aimed at empowering and motivating youth around the world through speaking, workshops and with the launch of an inspirational clothing line for men, women and children.

    Cheryl Burke

    With over 25 years dancing experience and several championship titles under her belt, Emmy-nominated professional dancer Cheryl Burke tangoed and sambaed her way into the hearts of millions through the hit ABC television show Dancing with the Stars, becoming champion twice with Emmitt Smith in season 3 and Drew Lachey in season 2. In 2015, Cheryl starred alongside Joe Jonas, Ciara and Marlon Wayans in NBC's I Can Do That, a variety show that challenged celebrities to live outside their comfort zones. 2016 marked Burke's return to Dancing with the Stars for her 19th season on the show, pairing her with infamous Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.

    Cheryl kicked off 2016 with production on Love on the Floor, a live stage show featuring professional dancers and Olympic and World Champion ice skaters coming together to tell the story of love and its many stages. The evocative stage show includes many forms of dance choreographed by Emmy Award-winning choreographers. Cheryl, who created and serves as the show's producer alongside live event giant IMG, was joined on stage by Kristi Yamaguchi, Meryl Davis and Charlie White and Daisuke Takahashi when the show made its worldwide premiere in June in Tokyo. In 2017, Cheryl again took Love on the Floor to Japan where it again played to sold-out audiences. A national tour is of LOTF is expected for 2018 in the United States.

    Cheryl again made headlines when she was cast as the replacement coach on Lifetime's long-running reality series Dance Moms. Hired to replace the legal battle embroiled and controversial Abby Lee Miller, Cheryl goes toe to toe with difficult dance moms this season as she strives to coach the girls to success by embracing their unique differences and becoming the best possible dancers they can be.

    In the spring of 2008, Cheryl opened her first of several dance studios, the highly successful Cheryl Burke Dance. In early 2011, Cheryl's biography, Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life, was released. In 2015 Cheryl launched her own clothing line, Cee Bee, with home shopping giant QVC as her retail partner. The line of active wear and workout attire features items that are designed to fit the active lifestyle of the average woman.

    Cheryl has been named one of People Magazine's Most Beautiful and often appears on Maxim's Hot 100 List. In 2008, Burke was awarded an Asian Excellence Award; and in 2010, she made a much talked about appearance in the music video for Ne-Yo's "Camera Phone." In addition to her onscreen roles, Burke is a noted motivational speaker. Having been publically attacked about her weight and battling body image issues her entire life, Burke often speaks at medical conferences, women's conventions and to school-age children about self-esteem and having a healthy body image.

    For Cheryl, dancing is a way of life. It provides a medium for her to express her inner feelings and passions all while maintaining focus and composure during extremely high-pressure situations. It is dancing that has made her such a competitor, both on and off the floor, and made her strive for perfection in anything that she sets out to do.

    I just read an article that said TO will be competing in the Challenge: Favorites as a star. It premieres in November, so I guess he isn't counting on winning DWTS?
