Chaz Bono Dancing with the Stars Weight Loss: 5lbs in 6 Days!
Dancing With the Stars has proven itself to be one heck of a diet plan. First Kirstie Alley, and now Chaz Bono, have used the challenge of being on the show to get healthy. Chaz, the show’s first transgender contestant, has apparently already lost five pounds after just six days of rehearsal.
His partner, Lacey Schwimmer, says that Chaz hasn’t just come a long way physically.
“When I first met him, he didn’t want to do anything that made him look silly,” Schwimmer, 23, told People Magazine. ”Now he’s all for it. He’s goofing off and he’s pretending to be Maks [Chmerkovskiy] in rehearsals. It’s really funny.”
It’s great to see the show bringing Chaz out of his shell, hopefully in episodes to come it will help other people like him find acceptance.
While Schwimmer knows that she and Chaz are underdogs, she’s still thrilled to be his partner:
“He’s such a great guy,” she told People. “He is so nice, and he’s such a kind person. He’s awesome. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner this time.”
Apparently, Chaz is against dancing to his famous parent’s music, though the show’s producers want that to happen.
“Chaz has already told me he doesn’t want to dance to any of his parents’ songs,” Schwimmer told People. “But the show really wants it to happen, so we’ll see.”
What do you think? Should Chaz and Lacey dance to I’ve Got You Babe?
