'Dancing with the Stars' returns with an all-athlete edition

'Dancing with the Stars' returns with an all-athlete edition

"DWTS" also has to make the ejections quicker.

Snowboarder Jamie Anderson hits the dance floor next with Artem and they are dancing the Viennese Waltz.

On a foxtrot with a baseball theme, Damon's charm came through even if his dance steps didn't. She looked ready to go home when Anderson and Damon were released. And football fans know who they'll likely root for: Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins is the only football player in the cast. He had no dance experience but moved like a pro on a cha cha with Sharna Burgess. Norman scored a leading 24 points.

The skaters - Nagasu, Rippon and Harding - were the wowsers. Her name is Jenna Johnson. She's the most controversial contestant of the season as the result of the 1994 attack on her figure skating rival (and season 24 "DWTS" contestant) Nancy Kerrigan, in which she was implicated. But it is a dance competition, so the judges say: Carrie calls it handsome; Len says she has flair and control, but she went a little wonky. The audience gashed when Tonya's name was called because she nailed her foxtrot with a score of 23 out of 30. "I think we've got a really interesting group of people".

Chris Mazdzer is a luger and says that coming out of the corner it is like being shot out of a cannon. She comes with buzz from the Oscar-nominated movie, "I, Tonya", about the 1994 Nancy Kerrigan assault controversy, and it sounds like Harding is eager to redeem herself. Inaba saw potential and star quality in Mazdzer, who bared his chest. Jennie Finch Daigle- 21 out of 30 Jennie won just about every championship you could in softball, but retired several years ago to raise her three kids on an idyllic ranch in Louisiana. Tonya brings a lot of emotion to the ballroom and wears her heart on her sleeve.

Basketball star Arike Ogunbowale might have been an easier pick. Goodman wanted more hip action, and Tonioli told her to watch her shoulders, but the judges were impressed. Among the stars dancing this time is Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who was born in New York City but became a legend in Los Angeles.

"I feel so incredibly.so cool!" said Lindsay Arnold.
