Repent, for judgment day is upon us. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the ninth season of Dancing With the Stars will premiere on ABC, featuring the Iceman himself, Chuck Liddell. Tune in to find out how Chuck responds to criticism from this doofus. For those of you who think Liddell is going to get blown out of the competition early, prepare to be shocked. According to TMZ, he’s given up alcohol for the gig, and is actually a dark horse to go all the way: "Our spies say he’s really good and practices like a mutha. One source says he gets to practice early and shuts the place down, with 6 hour, uninterrupted power sessions. And get this — we’re told he’s already lost 20 lbs."
Here’s the video of Dana conceding that Chuck won their weight loss challenge, hitting the 215-pound mark by September 15th. He then offers this bit of troop-rallying: "Let’s show ABC and let’s show Dancing With the Stars and let’s show all the mainstream people how strong mixed martial arts fans are, man. Check out Dancing With the Stars on [Monday] with Chuck Liddell, and give him your vote." As long as it doesn’t conflict with The Biggest Loser, we’re there. Below: A promo for DWtS in which Liddell is referred to as a "wrestler," gets love from his castmates, and mumbles something unintelligible about why he should stay on the show.
