It's very rare that ABC gives me a Dancing with the Stars contestant to root for.  But I'll be clearing my DVR to make sure I don't miss one minute of soap star Ingo Rademacher's turn on the competition.  Here are 5 reasons to watch him on the ballroom floor.

Ingo Rademacher is a sexy Aussie best known for his role as Jasper Jax on ABC's daytime drama General Hospital.  But there's no more fighting for the attention of Carly or Brenda or fighting off Sonny.  Ingo's now got the enviable task of winning the affection of America (and their votes) when he makes his Dancing with the Stars debut next month.
