Terrell is a 43-year-old former NFL football wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler, who previously starred on The T.O. Show, which aired three seasons from July 2009 to October 2011.

Terrell, nicknamed T.O., is partnered with two-time mirrorball trophy champion Cheryl Burke for Dancing with the Stars' currently-airing season.

When Terrell made his Dancing debut last week, he and Cheryl landed in twelfth place on the leaderboard after receiving only 15 out of 30 possible points from the judges for their cha cha routine. Cheryl has said, however, that Terrell was a last-minute addition to the cast and they therefore had less rehearsal time than the rest of the celebrities.
