Chad Ochocinco: Cheryl Burke was a 'Dancing with the Stars' comfort


By Christopher Rocchio, 05/19/2010 

Chad Ochocinco is more accustomed to using his fancy footwork to score touchdowns than dance, however the NFL star feels that having Cheryl Burke as his Dancing with the Stars partner helped him immensely.

"I enjoyed it. It was a wonderful journey for me. I was like a fish out of water. But working with Cheryl, I got comfortable very quick," said Ochocinco during a Wednesday Good Morning America appearance.

Ochocinco and Burke became the eighth couple eliminated from Dancing with the Stars' tenth season during Tuesday night's live penultimate results show on ABC based on the combination of the judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and home viewer votes that were cast afterward.

Despite being ousted on the cusp of the finale, Ochocinco said some of the moves he learned will translate to the upcoming NFL season.

"During the football season, some of the dances I've learned will just be more celebrations and more fines that I can get," the oft-fined wide receiver joked on GMA.

Ochocinco's flirtatious nature with Burke was definitely evident throughout the competition, and he even gave her a platinum ring with diamonds earlier in the season.

Still, Burke said there was "nothing" romantic going on between the two.

"We became really close friends throughout the course of the season and we'll remain friends," said Burke, who also appeared on GMA.

"One of the things that I will take from this show is everything that she's taught me and I'm going to steal her along with it," added Ochocinco.

"That's news to me," responded Burke.

With only three couples still in the running for the tenth-season mirror ball trophy, Burke -- a two-time professional champion -- said the competition is up for grabs.

"It's going to be so close," she said.

"It all really depends on that freestyle dance. Whoever comes out with the best freestyle will probably be the winner."
