BRAND NEW ON E!
Before he was practicing his two-steps, fox-trots and tangos, one hunky contestant of the new season of Dancing With the Stars was a muscled-up competitive bodybuilder.
So who stripped down to a banana hammock back in 2006 with hopes of flexing his way to the top? Read on to find out...
It's Lacey Schwimmer's partner, radio host "Psycho" Mike Catherwood!
As you may know, Catherwood is still in very fine shape. And he tells us that DWTS producers are already trying to get him to take his shirt off for the show.
"The idea's come up but I've strictly denied it, so we'll see," he says. "I say absolutely no way no how now, but let's see when I'm in the bottom vote. You know, like when I'm at the bottom of the judges scoring for a couple times. I'll be doing whatever it takes probably."
We say sooner rather than later, Mike! But he warns that he now has many tattoos.
"Maybe they'll actually get a look at what I got going on and they'll be like, 'You know what? Keep your shirt on,'" Catherwood laughed.
As for his pro partner, the 32-year-old says he's hoping for more that just the requisite rumored romance with her!
"Lacey's attractive," Catherwood says. "[And] I don't have any romance rumors, period...So it would be nice to have something out there that makes me look like I have some type of libido whatsoever."
What do you think? Want to see "Psycho" Mike become this season's Gilles Marini do some shirtless salsa-ing? Sound off below.
