After nine seasons of playing Kevin James’s wife in the popular sitcom ‘The King of Queens,’ Leah Remini decided to become a dancing queen. She joined ‘Dancing With the Stars’ for season 17 alongside dance partner Tony Dovolani.
Surprisingly enough, she made it to the semifinals! Leah won fifth place, and we were all very proud of her. She proved that there was more to her than acting. She had legs that she could move fantastically.
Bill Nye – Season 17
Who said scientists didn’t know how to have fun? In 2014, one of America’s most beloved scientists, Bill Nye, went on to compete in season 17 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' Viewers were thrilled since they hadn’t seen Nye on their screens since the 90s, and the fact that he was paired up with the gorgeous Tyne Stecklein didn’t hurt either.
Everything was looking well until Nye suffered an injury early in the show. Sadly, the pair were disqualified in the season’s third week. Gone so soon, Bill!
Nene Leakes – Season 18
The fierce star of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' is a force of nature, and apparently not just in real life, but on the dance floor too. During season 18 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' Leakes partnered with Tony Dovolani and did a fantastic job up until week 7.
The dancers never reached the finals, and during the Latin Night competition, Nene Leakes was eliminated and finished in 7th place. Not bad, but still not the best.
Rumer Willis – Season 20
Apart from some small roles here and there, Rumer Willis was mostly known for being the beautiful daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Until she stole the show in 'Dancing With the Stars,' that is.
During the show’s 20th season, in 2015, Rumer partnered with talented dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Not only did they receive perfect scores for almost all their routines, but they also won first place that season!
Nick Carter – Season 21
Nick Carter knew fame from a very young age, being only 12 years old when he joined the world-famous boy band the Backstreet Boys. Being the hot blond lead singer of one of the world’s most beloved bands made sure Nick Carter was dancing on TV screens for decades.
And he proved his skills once again when he joined the 21st season of 'Dancing With the Stars.' Partnered with Sharna Burgess, they made it all the way to second place.
