The face of FaceLube, the new line of eco-friendly, ultra-masculine men’s anti-aging skincare, Victor Ortiz, has been chosen as one of 12 celebrities to compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy on Season 16 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. FaceLube congratulates the Welter-Weight Boxing Champion with whom they partnered to create VO by FaceLube, a 3-step anti-aging skincare system and the best gift for men.
Dancing with the Stars is the American hit series in which celebrities and professional dancer partners team up to perform choreographed dance routines on live television and in front of renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman, dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba. The show is premiering its sixteenth season on March 18th on ABC. After fifteen successful seasons, this new cast is projected to be one of most enthusiastic and exciting to hit the stage. The hosts are Tom Bergeron (America's Funniest Home Videos) and Brooke Burke-Charvet (Dancing with the Stars Season Seven Champion).
The Season 16 competitors are Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas, Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess, D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke, Dorothy Hammill and Tristan McManus, Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson, Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough, Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko, Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd, Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold, Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovoloni, Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy.
ABC’s Dancing With The Stars Profile page on Victor Ortiz characterizes Ortiz as “…a living, breathing example of the American dream. From a broken home in a small town in Kansas to the bright lights of the boxing ring, Ortiz has used every obstacle he has encountered along his journey to fuel his strength and attain his dreams. As former Welterweight Boxing Champion, Ortiz finally found his life’s calling as a world class athlete. The nickname “Vicious” describes Ortiz when he’s in the ring, but his million-dollar smile is a preview to his heart of gold. His ability to connect with people on a human level has kept the spotlight from blinding him. Realizing the importance of hard work, dedication, and family at an early age, Ortiz always finds a way to give back.”
“I just can’t wait to start everything! Lindsay and I are going to give them a run for their money, you just wait and see.” said Ortiz.
Ortiz is paired with Lindsay Arnold on this season of Dancing with the Stars. According to her Dancing With The stars Profile on ABC, Lindsay is “an All-American girl that was born and raised in Provo, UT. She began dancing at the age of 4 years old and has not stopped. Her extensive ballroom training was from some of Utah’s best, including our very own, Mark Ballas…Her speciality dance style is Latin, but is incredibly versatile. In fact, Lindsay finished Top 8 on last season's So You Think You Can Dance. She received constant praise from the judges about her versatility as a dancer and her endless star quality. She then continued to perform in the 30-city tour, in theaters all across the nation. Her numerous awards include placing 1st place in both the United States Open Youth Latin Championships and the United States Open Junior Latin Championships, being a top 3 finalist at the World Junior Latin Team Match, a top 5 finalist at the World Cup Latin Junior Championships and a top 5 finalist at the United States Junior National 10 dance Championships."
“We are so excited for Victor! FaceLube is thrilled to be working with such a well-rounded, energetic celebrity. Not only does Victor have the smoothest face on Dancing With The Stars, his talent and charisma are immeasurable!” said Candace Chen, Founder of FaceLube skincare for men.
