Dancing with the Stars Premiere: How Did Meryl Davis Fare Against Charlie White?

Originally posted 03/17/2014 10:35PM

Another season of Dancing with the Stars kicked off on Monday night, with no shortage of fancy footwork to hit the ballroom.

Although the night consisted of many highs from a number of talented contestants, it was Olympic gold medalist ice skating partners-turned-DWTS-competitors Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who gained most of the buzz leading up to the show's 18th season.

Amy Purdy Trains During Paralympics for DWTS with Derek Hough

Originally posted 03/13/2014 08:00AM

Being on Dancing with the Stars was the furthest thing from snowboarder Amy Purdy's mind several months ago. Thoughts of dancing on television's most popular ballroom floor took a back seat to training and competing.

But then Purdy, 34, thought, 'Why not?' It's that type of attitude, after all, that helped the double amputee become a world champion in her sport and an inspiration to many.

"It's been so crazy," Purdy tells PEOPLE of the past three weeks training for DWTS with partner Derek Hough and training for the Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Before she sets her sights on the ballroom's famed mirror ball trophy, Purdy is going for gold on Friday in the boardercross competition.

Is the mirror ball trophy the key to winning Olympic gold?

After 16 years of skating together and a frustrating second-place silver at Vancouver, ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White are hoping ballroom choreography by five-time Dancing with the Stars champ Derek Hough will give them the edge at Sochi.

"We are a totally different team. We've really taken it to the next level this year," says White, 26, partnered with Davis, 27, since they were kids growing up 10 minutes apart in the Michigan suburbs.

The platonic power couple, whose moms still go with them everywhere, delivered a stunning, near-perfect performance at the U.S. nationals to position them as favorites.

To the average viewer, from the very first episode there was no question that Amber Riley was a clear contender in Dancing with the Stars's 17th season.

But Tuesday's newly named mirror ball champ didn't see things potentially heading in that direction until closer to the end of the competition.

"There was a point where I realized I really wanted to win," Riley, 27, standing alongside partner Derek Hough, told PEOPLE inside the ballroom right after landing the show's highest honor.

"And that point was maybe the last time [I had to put needles in my knees]. The last time I got the knees lubed up was the time that I was like, 'Hey, you know, I feel like I really want to win this, so let's go hard' … It was America's vote and they voted for me and I really appreciate it."
