Helio Castroneves Reveals His 'Dancing with the Stars' Pick


Helio Castroneves made a return to 'Dancing with the Stars' Monday night featuring the show's 1000th competitive dance, and ET Correspondent Mark Steines caught up with the season 5 Mirror Ball winner to get all the scoop.

So, who is Helio's pick for the Season 12 Mirror Ball? That would be the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver turned dancer, Hines Ward. Helio said confidently, "He will be in the final. He did a great job, Kym is doing a great job so he seems to be right up there."

A triple 9 score has dancer Kym Johnson so excited, she giddily danced her way into our interview. Hines called the night's achievement "amazing, especially on America Night."

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were also tonight's stand outs, not only because Kirstie made it through her Fox Trot routine without mishap, but with the surprise appearance of a certain "dance doctor" by the name of John Travolta. She surprisingly had enough lingering energy to perform a seductive dance for Mark Steines.

Check out Kirstie's sexy moves, as well as what the rest of the crew had to say about their Monday night performances, and be sure to catch elimination night, tomorrow on ABC.
