Athletes Dominate 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 24 Premiere

Athletes Dominate 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 24 Premiere

Time to put on your dancing shoes! Here's how it all shook out.

Erika always turns heads whenever she enters a room, so we expect everyone who watches her on DWTS to be absolutely wowed.

As for how his dance partner Witney Carson is handling his neck injury, she revealed, "It's definitely concerning because breaking your neck is a serious injury". She was a regular on the sketch comedy show "Rowan & Martin's Laugh In" - making her debut in 1968 - and quickly became known as the "Cuchi Cuchi" girl (her trademark saying). She ended up with a solid 28 out of 40. She has the good fortune to be paired with Val Chmerkovskiy. Here's to a truly unforgettable Erika Jayne experience for us all! "It's embarrassing. You can't go out in public", he explains.

Inevitably, the competitive performances that followed included some duds (points for effort, Chris Kattan). The new contestants performed their first dances and while they all did an admirable job it was the athletes that really stole the show. He was also pretty convinced that Lindsay had no idea who he was, and he seemed to be right. It did not take long for him to disagree with the other judges. Bruno even called him "fresh as a daisy".

The 20-year-old member of Fifth Harmony (really Fourth Harmony now that Camila Cabello has left) has had to learn some choreography with the pop-R&B group so she does have some dance background.

And we're off to the dance floor!

"Housewives" star Erika Jayne turned in a sexy salsa which caused Len Goodman to note that it was "too raunchy". That being said, there is nowhere to go but up, and it's only the first week! She didn't fail, but she didn't nail it either.

Tune in next week to see which dancing duo is booted off first. Erika is thrilled to be performing on DWTS season 24 and she is already taking advice from her show's costars, as both Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump competed in past seasons.

Somehow, Nick Viall tied with her.

Nick Viall has apparently run out of "Bachelor" properties to appear on, so he has finally landed on "DWTS" for his final lap around ABC. Erin spent the requisite amount of time gushing over Peta's insane post-baby body.

Some interesting outsider selections include bull rider, Bonner Bolton, and former professional dancer and Glee star, Heather Morris. I think she's going to bring so much fun to the show.

Who's your favorite celeb on this season of Dancing With The Stars? .

He added, with a chuckle, "I thought that everything she taught me I did, more or less". Len Goodman: Shaking your moroccos and strutting your stuff, work a little more on your technique.

One also excitedly tweeted: "Mr. T and Kym dancing to the A-Team theme song?" They earned a 31 and lots of respect from the judges - but Simone Biles still hadn't danced yet. That movie is solid gold trash (but like, in the best way). Suffice it to say, they did that with their tango.

Based on this week's episode, it's going to be hard for anyone to catch Simone - but stranger things have happened on the way to the mirrorball. "I can't get into it with you".
