The actor, dancer, singer, game show host and television director have worked different hosting jobs on game shows here and there, but his recent appearance on the hugely successful show, Dancing With The Stars, brought him back into our homes weekly. Many felt that although we grew up and enjoyed Alfonso talents, he had an unfair advantage because he’s been on Broadway as a dancer when he played the leading role in the Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid, he also did a commercial with Michael Jackson and he was a dancer in that. He did not allow the critics to stop him from his goal of winning the dance competition. Over the weeks he has blessed our television screens with entertaining and incredible dance moves, but he took us all the way back, when he finally did The Carlton Dance on one of the episodes. He has had injuries while on the show, but did not allow them stop him either.
After all his many success and doing The Carlton dance for well over 20 years, he can now add Dancing With The Stars Mirror Ball Trophy to that list. As he stood by his dance partner Witney Carson, he had tears of joy falling down his face, as he was being crowned season 19th winner of the show. As he celebrated his incredible win, Alfonso said “I cannot believe this. I've wanted it forever. My God, I don't even know what to say.”His dance partner said: 'He's one of the most hard working people I've ever met. You deserve it."
