'DWTS' Pro Injures Groin During Performance

Has the curse of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ touched yet another contestant from the show?

It appears that way, with Mark Ballas – the pro who won the title in May with Kristi Yamaguchi—injuring his groin during a stage performance. Ballas will be out for “a couple of weeks” after he hurt himself while performing on tour at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. He was reportedly forced to bow out of his performance and apologize to fans, according to PopEater.com.

Hopefully, Ballas will heal in time for the eighth season of ‘DWTS,’ scheduled to return on March 9.

The alleged injury curse has circulated the show for months now after the seventh season saw several cast members injured.

Olympian Misty Mae Treanor broke her Achilles tendon and was forced to quit the show, Julianne Hough had to undergo emergency surgery for endometriosis, Karina Smirnoff sprained her ankle, Jeffrey Ross was poked in the eye and forced to wear an eyepatch and Cloris Leachman, 82, was diagnosed with pneumonia after the season ended, PopEater said.
