Donald Driver set to tango on 'Dancing'
By Lynn Hoppes
Donald Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd will be dancing the Argentine tango on Monday.
Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver isn't satisfied taking the lead last week in ABC's "Dancing with the Stars".
"We're happy with it, but that's not good enough," said Driver, who along with partner Peta Murgatroyd, started Season 14 as one of the favorites. "They don't give you the Mirrorball Trophy for having the highest score in Week 4! We want to have the highest scores at the very end."
All season, Driver has stayed pretty consistent among the nine remaining contestants. He hasn't really needed to rely on Packers Nation to help with scoring -- yet.
On Monday's live show, the duo will be performing the Argentine Tango.
"Practice is going very well," Driver said. "Peta is a great teachers and knows how to push me to be my best."
Opera singer Katherine Jenkins and Disney Channel star Roshon Fegan are Driver's main challenges with about six weeks remaining.
Driver, one of the oldest remaining contestants at 37, said he's feeling great during rehearsals.
"My body is holding up great," Driver said. "I’m doing football workouts every morning in addition to all the dancing and I couldn’t feel better!"
