Chaz Bono has stirred up both controversy and support for participating on Dancing With the Stars, but he is already reaping the benefits for participating on the show. Weight loss!
According to his partner Lacey Schwimmer, Bono has lost 5 pounds from only 6 days of dance training. Schwimmer told People Magazine, "It's so great. He says he's not eating any differently, he's just dancing." They must be working hard! A weight loss of nearly a pound per day is pretty tough to accomplish!
Dancing With the Stars has been known to have that effect on its participants. Just last season, Kirstie Alley claimed to have lost 30 pounds while participating on the show. Other past contestants who were able to shed pounds on the show include Wendy Williams, Kyle Massey, Joey Fatone, Kelly Osbourne and Marie Osmond.
But, Bono's shrinking body isn't the only change seen by partner Lacey Schwimmer. She said that Chaz has been shedding his shy persona and hamming it up on the dance floor. She said, "When I first met him, he didn't want to do anything that made him look silly. Now he's all for it. He's goofing off and he's pretending to be Maks [Chmerkovskiy] in rehearsals. It's really funny."
It's good to see that Chaz Bono isn't letting the controversy of his appearance on the show get to him. Good luck and happy dancing Chaz! Dancing With the Stars kicks off its 13th season on September 19 on ABC. Don't miss it!
