Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd Tommy and Peta
are an unlikely duo, but have truly excelled on Dancing With The Stars
this season. Tommy
came out of the gate strong and, at 76 years old, he’s the oldest contestant to ever make it this far in the competition. Viewers love him, he’s got rhythm, and, although he has trouble remembering all the steps sometimes, he’s entertaining to watch, nothing short of amazing. One thing Peta
has had to work on with Tommy
is taking less breaks because laid-back Tommy likes to chill out sometimes. What almost made him “chill out” in the competition permanently was when he suffered a calf injury. After two MRI’s, Tommy couldn’t let his fans down and pulled through with two memorable performances.

Tommy’s Wife Shelby Chong Was the Reason He Joined DWTS Shelby Chong
is an actress, producer, comedian, and dancer. She’s also the beautiful, blonde wife of Tommy Chong. She’d actually dreamed of dancing on the show, but felt Tommy
had the celebrity factor she didn’t. And so, Tommy tried to join the show and DWTS
brought him on, much to his surprise. You can see Shelby
cheering on her husband from the audience each week if you haven’t seen her open up for Tommy
when he’s doing stand-up on the road. For all the details on Shelby Chong, click here.
