Frankie Muniz -- 11 things to know about the 'Dancing with the Stars' celebrity

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/13/2017 

Frankie Muniz gets nervous every time he steps on the Dancing with the Stars stage, but his talent proves there is no reason to be.

Frankie is a 31-year-old actor and racecar driver best known for his starring role as a young man on Fox's series Malcolm in the Middle.

Frankie has delivered consistently high scores on Dancing with the Stars with his professional partner Witney Carson. His journey on the show hasn't been perfect, but Frankie says he works incredibly hard and is very passionate about the ABC reality dancing competition.

Frankie and Witney's chemistry is apparently on and off the stage, and they bring out the best in each other. But they have some steep competition on Season 25 of the show, including singer and actor Jordan Fisher.

However, Frankie's endearing personality and Witney's charm and spunk seem to be raking in the home viewer votes week to week.

Will this dynamic duo make it to the finals? If so, they definitely have what it takes to win a mirrorball trophy.

Below is a list of 11 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Frankie Muniz:

- Frankie was born in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey to his mother Denise, a nurse, and father Francisco Muniz III, a restaurateur. His father is of Puerto Rican heritage and his mother is of Irish and Italian descent.

- Frankie's full name is Francisco Muniz IV, and he wears a lot of hats in the entertainment industry as an actor, musician, writer, producer, race car driver and band manager.

- He competed in the Champ Car Atlantic Championship as a race car driver. And in 2011, Frankie participated in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, and after starting 15th, he finished fourth.

- The Dancing with the Stars contestant starred in My Dog Skip, a 2000 family drama film; Big Fat Liar in 2002 opposite Amanda Bynes and Paul Giamatti; and Agent Cody Banks as well as its sequel Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London.

- From 2012 to 2014, he was a drummer in the band Kingsfoil. Frankie currently manages an electronic, indie and pop band called Astro Lasso from York, PA.

- The 5'5" DWTS contestant was born December 5, 1985, and he recently revealed he's suffered extreme memory loss, as he's unable to recall very special and impactful moments in his life.

- Frankie recently shot the lead of the independent drama feature The Black String for director Brian Hanson.

- Preacher on AMC is Frankie's favorite show. But he's also a big fan of reality TV, including shows like The Bachelorette, Parking Wars, and, believe it or not, Dance Moms.

- Frankie has been nominated for an Emmy award and two Golden Globe awards for his performance on Malcolm in the Middle.

- The actor doesn't exactly have mature and sophisticated taste buds. You'll often catch him eating tacos, hot dogs, fried chicken, pizza, and pie.


- Frankie once broke his back from crashing his race car. He had also injured his hands and ribs at the time.

While competing on Dancing with the Stars, Frankie has found himself with some physical limitations, so he's going through many treatment and therapy sessions in order to rehearse and perform each week.
