J.R. Martinez: Still DWTS' Man to Beat

by at . Comments

Make no mistake, J.R. Martinez wants to be looking down at everyone else's Dancing With the Stars scores. “I don’t want to share that spot with anybody,” he said.

“They’re cool, but that’s my spot.”

The Iraq War veteran, motivational speaker and soap opera star had to share it with Ricki Lake last night, but no one else came close to his quickstep.

The theme was Broadway Week, and his rendition inspired by Chicago’s “Nowadays” earned him almost a perfect score - and nothing but praise.

“J.R., you just keep on keeping on,” Len Goodman said with a rare smile. “You are truly relentless! Tonight, you have really come up a notch."
