William Levy, the Southwest Ranches telenovela heartthrob, came in third place onABC's "Dancing with The Stars."
The actor and model didn't get to take home the coveted Mirabal trophy Tuesday night on the dance reality show. The top prize went to Green Bay Packers star Donald Driver and his professional dance partner Peta Murgatroyd. Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins and her dance partner Mark Ballas placed second.
Levy had a total score of 89 from the judges for his cha-cha, salsa and freestyle dances.
"It was an amazing experience,'' said Levy on the show. "This show has definitely been one of the greatest experiences of my life."
Although he didn't win, he was already a big winner to a devoted group of South Florida fans who cheered him on every week — his Cuban family.
"He definitely makes us proud. We looked like lunatics screaming and cheering him when he got the three 10s,'' said Levy's cousin Zoila Maya-Sustiel, a Fort Lauderdale resident who organized weekly family viewing parties. "William is a very devoted, determined, and disciplined individual. Once he sets his mind on something he usually gets it."
