LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings went on The Wendy Williams Show today to talk about taking home the mirrorball trophy.

Jennings, who is from Forest, beat Major League Baseball player David Ross for the title.

Jennings told Williams about growing up here in the episode.

"Where are you from Rashad?" asked Williams.

"I'm born and raised in Forest, Virginia, self explanatory. Where houses are two miles apart," Jennings said.

"Did you walk to school?" Williams asked.

"I got on the big yellow bus," Jennings answered.

"And you stayed in Virginia and graduated from LU? Flunked out?" Williams asked again.

"I transferred, my father went through an illness and it worked out," Jennings answered.

Rashad says now after his win, his football buddies are now calling asking him to teach THEM how to dance!
