There are perhaps few who doubt that when Antiguan Cricket legend Sir Curtly Ambrose appears on Dancing with the Stars Australia he will display the same hunger for success that he did in the sport.

Ambrose will join a number of other South Pacific Stars on the show that kicks off in Australia on February 18.

During an interview with the Daily Mail-UK, Ambrose said this will give him a chance to show Australia and the rest of the world that he can do more than a bit of cricket, adding that he did not intend to travel all the way from Antigua to “mess it up.”

He also admitted to the online media outlet that he was somewhat hesitant about being a contestant on the show, but was motivated by his wife and daughters to take the challenge.

In an interview with OBSERVER Media, Ambrose’s wife Bridget says her family was elated upon hearing the news, and felt it would be a good challenge for her husband.

“When I heard the news I was very excited. He said someone had been contacting him and he ignored the proposal so I said no, come on, answer them, tell them yes you will do it, because I know anything you put your hand and mind to you will do well with it,” Mrs. Ambrose said.

She added that this will also be good promotion for the island, since “I haven’t heard of anybody else from the Caribbean that may have taken part in the show; so I think it will do a good thing for Antigua and Barbuda; give us more recognition and more people will want to come here.”

Ambrose claimed that his specialty is reggae music, but he looks forward to being challenged, as he is now receiving training in a number of dance disciplines like tango, waltz, foxtrot, jive and cha-cha.

Although he says he is used to dancing by himself, Ambrose is confident that he will go all the way in the competition.

Dancing with the Stars Australia is similar to the U.S. version of Dancing with the Stars and attracts approximately 2 million viewers a week nationally during its peak, the Daily Mail-UK states.

The show pairs celebrities with professional ballroom dancers, and each week they compete against each other in a dance-off to impress a panel of judges and, ultimately, the viewing public in order to survive elimination.
