Dancing with the Stars: By the Numbers
We all know Dancing with the Stars can be a bit of a numbers game. The judges must decide which digits to raise on their paddles after each dance. Fan votes are tallied each week to see who gets to move closer to that coveted Mirrorball Trophy. Then there are those numbers you don't always think about – like how many times Bruno gets overexcited. Okay, we can't count that high. But we do have some other fun Dancing stats to share.
