Bonner Bolton, Sharna Burgess Do a Sexy Rumba on ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Bonner Bolton is quickly becoming a favorite on Dancing With the Stars. The PBR bull rider who was paralyzed last year after falling off a bull while competing is back in the spotlight on Dancing With the Stars. On Monday evening (April 24), he debuted his rumba skills on the dancefloor.
Bolton and partner Sharna Burgess took part in Season 24's Boy Band vs Girl Groups Night! episode with a sultry performance to the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way." The routine had both Bolton and Burgess crawling the walls at their respective 'apartments' before Bolton picked up the phone to call Burgess. The two then meet and act out the song's lyrics through a sexy rumba routine where Bolton shows off his fancy footwork.
His outfit included his white button-down shirt unbuttoned, and Burgess frequently grasped his chest as he twirled her closer to him. Watch the two share the dance floor in the video above.
Bolton, 29, hopes his appearance on the 24th season of the televised dancing competition will inspire others.
“Bull riding is a lot like dancing,” he said during the season's first episode. “Your partner is a lot bigger though. I had a bad injury about a year ago and broke my neck and was paralyzed the day it happened. I’ve overcome a lot and I just want to inspire other people not to give up.”
Bolton is teamed up with three-time Dancing With the Stars finalist Sharna Burgess.
Season 24 of Dancing With the Stars continues to air Monday nights on ABC at 8PM ET.
