On Dancing With The Stars Jacoby had a signature move. It was a little more risque than most, but leaping over Karina Smirnoff proved effective for a wow factor.  Karina said it was not always so fun for her. Especially when he lands on her face. Jacoby didn’t think it was all that bad.

Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas gave a fantastic show for the win. As well as the other talented dancers, singers and football stars, Aly Raisman gets to go home to her gold medal.


Her gymnastics background did not help, Raisman said. She gave it her all, but she still can’t count music.
