Season 24 of Dancing With the Stars is off and running as of Monday night. While no country music artists are competing for the coveted mirrorball trophy this season, there is one guy that you may want to keep your eye on.
Champion bull rider Bonner Bolton has everyone talking after his sexy DWTS premiere Monday night. The 29-year old, along with professional dancer Sharna Burgess, delivered the steamiest dance of the premiere with a cha-cha choreographed to Luke Bryan‘s hit song “Move.”
The apparent chemistry between Bolton and Burgess raised eyebrows in the audience and on social media. But, it was Bolton’s incredible story of survival that also had people talking.
“I had a bad injury about a year ago, I broke my neck and I was paralyzed the day it happened. So I’ve overcome a lot and just want to inspire other people to not give up,” Bolton said.
Bolton’s injury happened when he dismounted a bull and landed on his head.
One would never know after watching Bolton’s dance moves Monday night that he had suffered such a horrific injury. In fact, the bull rider seems stronger than ever and determined to make the most of his time on Dancing With the Stars.
