Vanessa is a 36-year-old TV personality, model, actress and former beauty queen, who is married to fellow Dancing with the Stars contestant Nick Lachey.

Vanessa is partnered with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Season 25, which makes the competition even more interesting considering Nick is paired with Maksim's wife Peta Murgatroyd

For her Dancing with the Stars debut, Vanessa shined onstage with Maksim. The couple finished in third place on the leaderboard after receiving 21 out of 30 possible points for their cha cha routine from the judges.

Vanessa is very talented and passionate about working hard and having fun this season.
