Everyone expected Simone Biles to crush it on Dancing with the Stars, but what about the 230-pound Rashad Jennings?

Biles killed in her DWTS debut on Monday night, leading all dancers with a score of 32 out of 40 on her tango with partner Sasha Farber. Jennings, meanwhile, was right behind Biles. He and partner Emma Slater received a score of 31 for their Cha Cha.

This year’s cast is full of star athletes, with ex-MLB catcher David Ross and Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan in the mix. There’s also WWE Hall of Famer Mr. T. Check out how everyone did in the videos below.
