Cristián De La Fuente did his first whirl around the stage last night on ABC’s popular reality show Dancing with the Stars. After he and partner Cheryl Burke performed, the Chilean actor – who is the show’s only Hispanic contestant – earned good remarks from one of the judges.

Before De La Fuente took the stage, host Tom Bergeron introduced the 34-year-old as a three-time member of PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL’s 50 Most Beautiful list. The actor earned a score of 21 out of 30 points. “You look like you’re riding a bike. Why?” choreographer Bruno Tonioli asked the contestant of his hunched shoulders while doing the dance. Judge Len Goodman also criticized the actor for his shoulders. “From your hips down you’re fine, it’s all up here,” he said, pointing to his upper body.
