Castroneves to be celebrity judge for 'Dancing'
29 October 2010 – Helio Castroneves will soon return to the set of Dancing with the Stars, better known as Strictly Come Dancing to British readers, in order to serve as celebrity judge for the American version of the show’s 200th episode on Monday night.
The ever-popular Penske IndyCar star - a triple winner of the Indianapolis 500 – took victory alongside dance partner Julianne Hough in the ABC show’s fifth series in 2007, making all the headlines thanks to his bright yellow suit with matching hat which was worn for the famous Quickstep that generated a perfect score of 30 from the judges and soon appeared on the cover of ESPN The Magazine.
“It certainly is an honour to be invited back as a guest judge,” the Brazilian commented, with the performance having made it to the top ten in a viewers’ vote which featured over 1,000 dances. “I am very grateful to all of the fans and I send a heartfelt thank you to everyone that voted.”
