DWTS 14 Week 5: Roshon Fegan gets advice on sexy (VIDEO)

When you’re the youngest guy on a show that features hunks like William Levy or Donald Driver, it can be intimidating. Last night on “Dancing with the Stars” season 14, Roshon Fegan thought he might get some friendly advice from his fellow male competitors. As it was Latin night, he went to Latin heart throb William Levy.

In the rehearsal Fegan first dresses like Levy and then shows a poster of Levy. He also asked Fegan for some tips.

The conceit is that Chelsie is a tropical bird that Fegan discovers in the jungle. Fegan doesn’t exactly smolder, but he does a PG version of sexy that’s totally fun and funky. What’s great is that it is totally in keeping with his personality and he Hightower puts some hip hop funk in the salsa. They were dancing “from Hollywood and Vines” to “Bumpy Ride” by Mohombi.

Bruno Tonioli said he loved the energy and the timing. Fegan has great timing.

Carrie Ann Inaba said Fegan was sexy “in a Disney way” and that he was on top of the beat and liked his lines.

Len Goodman said Fegan was like a young guy with his first car–“full on speed and attack” and cautioned that while high energy was good, Fegan needed to calm himself on occasion and “enjoy the journey.” That’s true. Sometimes you need to contrast the slow with the fast and that can help build up suspense.

Fegan and Hightower’s score of 26 (9, 8, 9) was second highest of the night (out of three couples who danced salsa), but for this season, their score only ranks them third for salsa. Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke earned the high score during week 3–28 (9, 9, 10).

For Monday night, Fegan and Hightower were fifth overall. Levy and Burke were tied for first with Katherine Jenkins and Derek Hough. Both teams performed the Argentine tango.

What’s bad is that Fegan and Hightower were the surviving couple of the bottom two from last week. It would be a shame for this couple to be eliminated because he does dance so well and he’s fun to watch. With the dance off, the best couple at least will go forward. The only other couple that has been in the bottom two and gone forward is Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff and they were the low score of the night with 19 points.
