The 7 Hottest Latinos in ‘Dancing With the Stars’ History!

Dancing With the Stars isn’t just about dancing—it’s also about hot guys! Don’t believe us? Then read this. Now do you believe us?

But William Levy isn’t the only scorching hot Latino man who has gone dancing…check out the 7 hottest Latinos in Dancing With the Stars history!

1. DWTS: J.R. Martinez

J.R. Martinez, 28

Army vet and former All My Children star J.R. Martinez told us he wanted to become the second Latino—behind racecar driver Helio Castroneves—to win Dancing With the Stars. “I’m definitely planning on it!” the Salvadorean J.R. told Latina.com in week two of the competition. “Growing up and being raised by a single mother, my mother always taught me how to dance cumbias and salsa, so I plan on putting all that stuff to use in all of these dances and take it all home!” On November 23rd, 2011, J.R. won season 13 of DWTS. Mission accomplished!


2. DWTS: Mike Catherwood

Mike Catherwood, 32

He’s easily the worst dancer in the whole world, but half-Mexican radio personality Mike Catherwood (AKA "Psycho Mike") is also one dimpled muscular hottie! Despite his charisma and great sense of humor, Mike was the first contestant to be eliminated on the 12th season of DWTS. Too bad we weren’t voting based on looks. He would’ve won the whole thing!


3. DWTS: Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez, 38

There are no words to describe the awesome dance moves that hottie Extra host Mario Lopez showcased on the third season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, so we’ll let this clip do the talking for us. The fact that Mario and his partner Karina Smirnoff lost to Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke still makes us mad. They were robbed!


4. DWTS: William Levy

William Levy, 31

If William Levy can’t dance, we won’t mind. If William Levy can’t shake his tail feather—eh—oh well. And if William Levy takes off his shirt…well, we DEFINITELY won’t mind! He’s hot, so we’re going to watch! That is all. 


5. DWTS: Mark Ballas

Mark Ballas, 25

He’s not a celebrity contestant—he’s a professional ballroom dancer—but part-Mexican Mark Ballas has celebrity good-looks! He’s got abs dor days, a gorgeous smile, and semes like a great guy. No wonder he’s been linked to beauties like Kristin Cavallari, Tiffany Dunn and Pia Toscano!


6. DWTS: Cristian de la Fuente

Christian De la Fuente, 37

Who wouldn’t want to dance the tango with this sexy Chilean actor? Christian de la Fuente was eliminated on May 20, 2008. The In Plain Sight actor and his partner Cheryl Burke finished in third place on the sixth season of Dancing With the Stars.


7. DWTS: Helio Castroneves

Hélio Castroneves, 37

This talented and charismatic Brazilian racecar driver finished first on the fifth season of Dancing With the Stars with partner Julianne Hough (pre-Seacrest). Helio came off as sweet, sexy, and passionate and his expressiveness won over the crowd every week. The best thing about Helio and Julianne as a couple was how much fun they seemed to be having doing the show
