During season seven Derek Hough fell and conked himself out, Susan Lucci twisted her ankle and Olympic athlete Misty May-Treanor tore a tendon. "Oh, my Gluteus Maximus" O'Dell laughs. "I knew where it was - I just really haven't felt it this much in a long time," she laughs. "My rear has been so sore!"
But her butt isn't the only thing getting kicked. She was actually injured. "My quadriceps. I kind of pulled it the other day, but it's better now."
A waltz move was her Achilles heel. "You have to step really long, stay down and up. So that was hurting really bad the other day. I put heat on it and soaked it in the bath, drank a lot of water and it feels good now."
