Popular with the fans and a naturally gifted dancer, Amber Riley has quickly established herself as a front-runner on Dancing With The Stars. But although she snagged cutie Derek Hough as a partner, the Glee star admits to having a thing for another contestant — Bill Engvall!
He may have found himself in the bottom two, narrowly missing elimination, but Bill Engvall still holds potential for a comeback on Dancing With The Stars. Despite hhis less-than-desirable combined score of 39 (out of 60), the comedian’s dance moves have attracted attention from at least one admirer — fellow contestant Amber Riley!
In a recent blog post covering all the details from her second week on the show, Amber confessed to an infatuation with one of this season’s Bills…and it’s not Bill Nye! She explained that her appreciation for Bill Engvall stems from his clear love of dancing. “He is so committed to this, and I love watching him dance—he is having so much fun. I kind of welled up at the end of their dance because he seemed like he was about to start crying because he actually did it.”
Amber can relate to getting emotional on the dance floor, as she’s certainly experienced it herself, both in her two Dancing With The Stars performances and her many apperances on Glee. ” I identify with that feeling, when you don’t think that you can do something, and then you actually do it—it’s such an amazing feeling.”
