ELIMINATED - Week 6

Meet the Star: Victor Ortiz


Victor Ortiz is a living, breathing example of the American dream. From a broken home in a small town in Kansas to the bright lights of the boxing ring, Ortiz has used every obstacle he has encountered along his journey to fuel his strength and attain his dreams. 

As former Welterweight Boxing Champion, Ortiz finally found his life’s calling as a world class athlete.



The nickname “Vicious” describes Ortiz when he’s in the ring, but his million-dollar smile is a preview to his heart of gold. His ability to connect with people on a human level has kept the spotlight from blinding him. Realizing the importance of hard work, dedication, and family at an early age, Ortiz always finds a way to give back.

Meet the Pro: Lindsay Arnold


Lindsay is an All-American girl that was born and raised in Provo, UT. She began dancing at the age of 4 years old and has not stopped. Her extensive ballroom training was from some of Utah’s best, including our very own, Mark Ballas. Actually, Lindsay is no stranger to our entire Dancing With the Stars family, as she represented Team Ballas in Ballroom Battle, a few seasons ago.

Her speciality dance style is Latin, but is incredibly versatile. In fact, Lindsay finished Top 8 on last season's So You Think You Can Dance.  She received constant praise from the judges about her versatility as a dancer and her endless star quality. She then continued to perform in the 30-city tour, in theaters all across the nation.

Her numerous awards include placing 1st place in both the United States Open Youth Latin Championships and the United States Open Junior Latin Championships, being a top 3 finalist at the World Junior Latin Team Match, a top 5 finalist at the World Cup Latin Junior Championships and a top 5 finalist at the United States Junior National 10 dance Championships.
