All eyes are on Charlotte McKinney on this season of Dancing with the Stars. The beautiful model is best known for starring in the 2015 Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl commercial, and now she’s heating up the stage on DWTS with her pro partner, Keo Motsepe.
Charlotte, 21, stepped on stage with Keo on the season premiere on Monday night in a sparkling blue — and barely-there — dress. The couple’s first dance was the Jive to “Shake Your Tail Feather” by the Blues Brothers.
Before she danced, she told the audience, “I want to show America that I have more than just boobs.”

Whether or not Charlotte had the best dance moves of the night, there is no doubt that her fans will be voting by phone or online just because she shows so much spirit on stage.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said that she was off to a great start, despite a few mistakes. Julianne Hough said her “top half was really great” but her bottom half needed work. Charlotte took it all in stride and walked away with a score of 22 on her first night.
Carrie Ann and Bruno gave Charlotte and Keo a 6, and Len and Julianne gave the pair a 5.
Charlotte’s good looks are just part of what makes the five foot, seven inch-tall model so attractive. She’s also a very strong-willed woman who has overcome obstacles on the way to success.
The Heavy states that despite the fact that McKinney was bullied as a child because of her advanced “physical development” during puberty and because she has dyslexia. Instead of cowering to the bullies, she turned the negatives into a great modeling career, with many calling her the next Kate Upton.
“I’ve worked so hard to be where I am,” McKinney said. “Dropping out, I knew what I had to do to be successful. School wasn’t working. I had people behind me. I’m proud of the decision.”

According to the Orlando Sentinel, McKinney has plenty going on in addition to the time she spends practicing for Dancing with the Stars. Represented by the Wilhelmina Models agency, she’s currently headlining the Guess Jeans campaign and is set to appear in the upcoming movie Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser alongside David Spade and Christopher Walken.
