Although he has enough to juggle, what with his professional bull riding and modeling careers, PBR star Bonner Bolton may have found himself a third.

The Texas-born world-champion bull rider put up another strong performance on Dancing With the Stars in Week 2, performing the Viennese Waltz with his partner, Sharna Burgess.

After bringing the rodeo to the dance floor in his Week 1 performance, Bolton wowed again with a more emotional routine, which he dedicated to his grandmother and uncle, who’s in a wheelchair:


Bolton finished Week 2 with a score of 29, putting him just behind fellow contestants Heather Morris (former Glee actress), Normani Kordei (of Fifth Harmony), and Rashad Jennings (football running back who’s currently a free agent).

Bolton’s chemistry with Burgess has grown more intense—just one reason why the duo ranks second among the couples on the leaderboard.

After two weeks, Bolton and Burgess have a combined score of 51, putting them 10 points behind gymnast Simone Biles and her partner, Sasha Farber.
