"To come to this country and receive this kind of love from people you don’t even know, it's amazing," the Cuba native told People in this week's cover story.
So is William the new J.R. Martinez? Remember last season when most DWTS fans weren't too familiar with the soap star, then he won America over with his inspiring backstory, got himself on the cover of People and won Season 13? A lot of us weren't familiar with Loverboy Levy until Season 14 started — and the screams started — now it's like he can do anything (or not much at all) and still rock the ballroom.
DWTS Week 5 is Latin Week and it’s possible they invented that theme specifically for William to shake his money-maker. Let’s hope he and Cheryl Burke get their sexy acts together and put on a great show (without another shoe mishap). In the meantime, enjoy the glory!
Catch the next new episode of DWTS on Monday, April 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
