He may be the most talked about contestant on Dancing with the Stars, but it’s pretty clear Chaz Bono isn’t letting the pressure getting to him. 

Emerging from the dance rehearsal studios in Los Angeles, Chaz was all smiles for the paparazzi eagerly awaiting to get a photo.

There has been a growing controversy over his inclusion in the show as the first ever transgender contestant, but his fellow stars are showing their support!

Yesterday, David Arquette tweeted at him, saying, “Thank you David, I agree with you that part of growing up, for everyone, is learning to be you true self.”

Chaz replied: “Thank you David, I agree with you that part of growing up, for everyone, is learning to be you true self.”
