Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones hinted days after the Super Bowl that he badly wanted to be a contestant on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
Jones’ goal was to become the fourth NFL player to win the competition, and he’s one perfect score away from doing so. Jones and his partner Karina Smirnoff have advanced to the finale after the pair scored a perfect 30 from the show’s three-judge panel on Monday night.
Jones and Smirnoff now will compete against country music star Kellie Pickler, Disney star Zendaya, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and their three respective professional dance partners next Monday night, with the winner being revealed on Tuesday.
If he can pull it off, Jones will join Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver as NFL players who’ve won the competition.
