The season 24 premiere of Dancing with the Stars was Monday evening. The new contestants performed their first dances and while they all did an admirable job it was the athletes that really stole the show.
There is an old say that goes, "If you can walk, you can dance." Since most athletes are really good at doing physical things, like walking, it only makes sense that they would be pretty great when it comes to dancing.
Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and her dance partner Sasha Farber got the highest score of the night receiving 32 out of a possible 40 points. Between her impressive abilities and popularity, it is likely that she is gonna be on the show for a while.
Other athletes also did well like former New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings who go 31 points from the judges.
The show also had its first major league baseball player, former Chicago Cub catcher David Ross. He tied former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan with 28 points.
It looks like the housewives and actors are gonna need to step up their game if they hope to catch the athletes.
