Dancing with the Stars: Cristian de la Fuente suffers injury

Dancing with the Stars: Cristian de la Fuente suffers injury Cristian de la Fuente was forced to leave “Dancing With the Stars” early on Monday night, after suffering an injury during his second dance for the evening. Monday was the first night the final six "Dancing with the Stars" competitors had to do two dances in just one show and while Cristian de la Fuente and partner Cheryl Burke had no problem with their ballroom round Viennese waltz, in the Latin round de la Fuente showed signs of an injury early into the dance. Cristián was seen grasping his arm, eventually falling on top of Cheryl at the end of the routine, with a pained look on his face. Later we found out that the injury was a pulled arm muscle. Backstage the EMT diagnosed Cristián de la Fuenteas with a severe muscle cramp and packed his arm in ice. He was later taken to a hospital to make sure no further injuries were missed.

 Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke ended the evening in last place at 46, with a 25 for the first number, the Viennese waltz, and 21 for the samba. Despite the injury and the low score, the odds makers at the online sportsbook BodogSports refused to downgrade Cristian de la Fuente to underdog, although he is now listed with 20/1 odds to win Dancing with the Stars. Underdog is still Marissa Jaret Winokur at 40/1, followed by Shannon Elizabeth with odds 25/1. The Dancing with the Stars favorite remains Kristi Yamaguchi at 2/5.
