The Best Bodies of Dancing With the Stars
DWTS Best Body: Stacy Keibler
Stacy Keibler added dancer to her actress/model/pro wrestler credentials when she wowed the judges on DWTS season 2, ending up in the third-place spot. Keibler says she trained up to 10 hours each day for the show, ate whatever she wanted, and was more lean and toned than ever while filming.
DWTS Best Body: Gilles Marini
Fans were shocked when Gilles Marini's steamy tango didn't win him the Mirror Ball Trophy on DWTS season 8. The Sex and the City stud finished in second place, behind gymnast Shawn Johnson, after being the front-runner for most of the season.
DWTS Best Body: Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole Scherzinger beat out Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek to win DWTS season 10—and she looked fantastically fit while doing it. Click here to find out what the Pussycat Doll told us about her workout routine and her time on DWTS.
DWTS Best Body: Petra Nemcova
Petra Nemcova's opening performance on DWTS season 12 was one of the most emotional in the show's history. The stunning model, who survived the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia that took her fiancé's life, almost gave up her spot in the 2011 DWTS cast to help victims in Japan. Instead, Nemcova decided to use the show as a platform to raise awareness.
DWTS Best Body: Helio Castroneves
Racecar driver Helio Castroneves put his speed from the track to use in his final dance, the quickstep, scoring a perfect 30 and upsetting Melanie Brown to win the DWTS season 5. Castroneves advice to future contestants: Learn from the experts, be patient with yourself, and have fun!
DWTS Best Body: Shannon Elizabeth
Although actress/celebrity poker player Shannon Elizabeth finished in the top half on DWTS season 6, her rumored romance with dancing partner Derek Hough got just as much (or maybe more) attention as her skills on the dance floor.
DWTS Best Body: Cody Linley
Cody Linley made it to the semifinals on DWTS season 7. The Hannah Montana heartthrob was a fan favorite and one of the youngest contestants ever to be on the show.
DWTS Best Body: Kelly Osbourne

DWTS Best Body: Mario Lopez
Mario Lopez was an early favorite on DWTS season 3, but the Saved by the Bell hunk lost out to NFL running back Emmitt Smith in one of the show's closest battles. DWTS kicked off Lopez's career in the dance world. He made his Broadway debut in A Chorus Line in 2008, and he's the host of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew.
