Dancing with the Stars went to Louisiana last night to introduce contestant Jennie Finch Daigle to her pro partner Keo Motsepe!

Last night was the kick off to season 26 of Dancing with the Stars Athletes, a special four week season! Louisiana was in the spotlight as the DWTS cameras went to Sulphor, LA to introduce the nation to softball legend Jennie Finch Daigle. They followed her pro partner Keo to her farm as he met Jennie, her family, her farm and her livestock!

Jennie and Keo foxtrotted across the ballroom floor to Carrie Underwood's All-American Girl earning a cumulative score of 21 from the judges and managed to stay safe from the first round of eliminations. (Johnny Damon and Jamie Anderson were sent home at the end of the show.)

Jennie is no stranger to northwest Louisiana as she's hosted softball camps and clinics in our area and has attended several events, including the Dream Hunt Foundation Dinner at Los Paloma. Finch has found success as a collegiate and Olympic athlete and serves as a role model for many as a devout Christian. 

Here's Jennie with local celebrity Gary McCoy!
