Dancing with the Stars is wrapping up its fourteenth season tonight, and while the remaining three contestants are adamantly pursuing the Mirrorball Trophy, ET inquired about what was next for them after the show's conclusion. Football veteran Donald Driver hinted that he may pursue an acting career after his football career is finished.
"Whatever the Lord has for me--I'm going to follow that road," Driver said about his future career plans. "If it's acting or whatever comes up, then I'm going to follow. I would love to act. I would love to even be a commentator, but it depends on what comes up."
Driver's competitors Katherine Jenkins and William Levy both expressed excitement about their future career plans within their own industries (singing and acting, respectively) with the broader audience that they have garnered from the show.
"So many exciting things have happened as a result [of the show], so I'm looking forward to spending more time here," Jenkins, a Welsh native said. Levy, a Cuban native, conveyed similar thoughts. "After this [show], things are going a little better," he said. "It was my dream to come and work in Hollywood, so hopefully after this everything goes in a better way."
While all three certainly have bright futures ahead of them, their immediate future on Dancing with the Stars is a toss-up, says Levy's partner Cheryl Burke, who has won the Mirrorball Trophy twice in the past. "I think everyone is so good. The level of dancing is so high so it's really up to what people prefer at the end of the day."
Find out who wins the Mirrorball Trophy tonight on Dancing with the Stars, which airs at 9 p.m. on ABC.
