Alek Skarlatos on ‘DWTS’: The ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Contestant to Watch

Alek Skarlatos

Alek Skarlatos is an American hero who is now taking on Dancing With the Stars opposite pro partner Lindsay Arnold. With no dance training, many were shocked to see him do so well on the show premiere. DWTS judge Julianne Hough told People that: I was shocked with Alek, I think he was even shocked by his ability, too! I don't think anybody had any idea what to expect from him, and he was really graceful. He's really charming, and I said it when I was judging him the other night, but I feel like he is the everyman, the everywoman, America's representative ... And then Bindi was fantastic, her whole energy, her spirit is infectious.
