As the "Dancing with the Stars [VIDEO]" cast prepares for the ballroom competition, Nick Lachey revealed the amount of weight he has lost since starring on the show. Vanessa Lachey, his wife, also suffered a toe injury, and in spite of it, appears to be continuing in the competition. Fans can look forward to the ballroom competition as the show will offer a two-night dance competition. The number of celebrities participating in "Dancing With The Stars" will be reduced from 13 to 11. It promises to be a challenging competition for the dancers as they had only seven days to learn twice as much choreography as they learned in the season premiere.

Nick Lachey weight loss details

Extra TV reported on the details of Nick Lachey's weight loss. Lachey, who is paired with Peta Murgatroyd said that he had lost 12 pounds so far. His wife Vanessa is also competing on the show, and she is dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Peta's husband. Lachey also said that he and his wife are always competing. In the last competition, his wife and Chmerkovskiy had higher scores.

Gold Derby reported that the competition for the ballroom dancing would result in one person being eliminated from the competition each night. This means that contestants will have to learn how to perform two routines instead of one. With each competition, the celebrities are being asked to do more and more, and it will separate those who are serious contenders from those who are not.
