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.
