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 fromDancing 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.
