Congratulations to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Don Diamont (Bill) who has made it through the first round of competition on BALLANDO CON LE STELLE, the Italian version of DANCING WITH THE STARS! He and partner Hanna Karttunen performed a paso doble to “Mentre Tutto Scorre” by Negramaro. After Diamont gave a shout-out to wife Cindy Ambuehl in the audience supporting him, they received their scores from the judges. While it was mostly in Italian, one judge did appreciate his positive attitude when faced with the challenge of ballroom dancing. The couple received three 6’s, one 7 and one 5, giving them a total score of 30. Watch his performance and judging right here!
“Thanks for the support everyone!” Diamont shared on Instagram with some pics from the performance. “This Saturday, March 17, please go to @ballandoconlestelle and vote for team Diamont/Kartunnen!” He also reminded B&B fans in the US and the rest of the world that they can also vote as well as Italians. All you have to do is go to the @ballandoconlestelle Instagram page and like the photo of Diamont and Kartunnen. The number of likes on their Instagram pic can help add to their overall score and keep him in the competition!

Diamont is not the first B&B star to compete on the competitive reality series, and he was thrilled to be able to follow in the dancing shoes of some of his castmates. Of course, things weren’t looking good for the actor when just a couple days before the show’s premiere, he was in an Italian clinic receiving treatment for a hip injury!
Thankfully, Diamont seems to be doing well and able to compete, so we look forward to seeing what challenging routine he and Karttunen are tasked with learning in the next episode. Meanwhile, on B&B, his alter ego of Bill Spencer is lying in the hospital after being shot by a mysterious assailant. While this led some fans to fear he was leaving the soap, this was just timed to facilitate his exit to compete on BALLANDO CON LE STELLE.
