There is no denying Cheryl Burke and her partner — and rumored romantic interest — Chad Ochocinco have great chemistry on the dance floor, but when it comes to costumes and counting calories, their opinions definitely clash. “Chad would seriously dance naked if it were allowed,” Cheryl tells In Touch of the football player. “He loves to show off his beautiful body.” Cheryl prefers choosing looks inspired by gowns celebrities wore on the red carpet. “My rumba costume was styled after a dress Angelina Jolie wore on the red carpet,” she explains.
As far as diet, Cheryl tells In Touch Chad is “naturally in really good shape” and can eat McDonald’s every day, while she follows a much cleaner program. “I eat lean meats and lots of veggies and focus on having small meals throughout the day to keep my metabolism burning and my energy up for our eight-hour rehearsals,” she says.
But in a few hours, this dynamic duo will put all their differences aside to perform what’s sure to be a hot and sexy Argentine tango on the sixth week of Dancing With the Stars.
