dancing with the stars chad ochocinco 320 'Dancing with the Stars': 'General Hospital's' Chad Duell is Team Chad Ochocinco“Dancing with the Stars” contestant Chad Ochocinco can count on at least one member of ABC Daytime having his back: “General Hospital’s” newest star, Chad Duell.

“I want Chad Ochocinco to take it all,” Duell tells Zap2it. “I’m a huge football fan, so whenever a football player is on the show, I always root for them.”

“When he’s playing football, he usually does a dance [when he scores],” he continues. “So football fans already knew he could move [based on] the funny dance moves he makes when he scores a touchdown. He always does goofy stuff in the end zone, so I’m hoping he makes it to the finals.”

Duell also hopes he can show off his own skills on the reality series on a future season.

I would love to be able to pick up on that stuff. It would be fantastic, I would do it in a heartbeat. I like dancing, I do. I’m more of an improvisational dancer, like [I] do a little pop-lock, that kind of dancing. But I have a natural rhythm, not to brag.”

Perhaps he could get some tips from “General Hospital” costar Kelly Monaco, who won the Season One competition?

“She won [‘Dancing with the Stars’]?” Duell asked. “I didn’t know that!”

Um, maybe don’t tell her that.

Think Duell has what it takes to be a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars”?
