Cheryl Burke Talks Toughest Competition on 'DWTS'


Dancing With The Stars
is back for its seventeenth season, and one of the show's most popular pro dancers, Cheryl Burke, held a DWTS viewing party with her friends and colleagues at a very special Wendy's!

Viewing parties are becoming more and more popular, especially with big shows like Dancing With The Stars. But it's not always easy to put one together. Well, Cheryl Burke worked with Jennifer Sbranti, known as The Hostess with the Mostess, to create this awesome viewing party.

And what better food to serve than the new Wendy's flatbread grilled chicken sandwich?

Once the party was decorated and food was set, it was time to get down to business and watch the show. After the viewing, Cheryl sat down to talk with ET about who she thinks will do well this year on DWTS, and who will be her toughest competition.

"You have the ringers already," Cheryl said. "You have Amber, you have Corbin. I even think Christina Milian and Nicole, Snookie. They're just all amazing. But I know this competition so well, and I know that people look for the journey and people want to see you improve throughout the competition, so that’s what were going to try and do."
