Donald Driver's been a hit on Dancing With the Stars so far and there's little reason to believe he'll slow down on "Latin Night."

The Green Bay Packers wide receiver vaulted to the top of the leaderboard with a scintillating Paso Doble opposite Peta Murgatroyd during "Rock Night" last week, setting himself up for the Week 5 spotlight in the process:

This time around, Donald and Peta will have to wow the audience with the Argentine tango while fending off fast advances from Roshon Fegan and Maria Menounos. Fegan, the Disney channel star, and Menounos, the full-time host of Extra and part-time WWE diva, tackled the salsa with Chelsie Hightower and Derek Hough, respectively.

Dancing the tango will be an intriguing challenge for Driver, who's thus far shown that his muscularity is hardly a hindrance to his ability to captivate the ballroom. His fast feet, hip flexibility, general agility and flare for the dramatic—all qualities of a top-tier NFL pass catcher—have served him well through the first four weeks of competition.

Frankly, it would be more surprising if Donald and Peta didn't dominate the Argentine tango, given how well they've danced together up to this point. Expect Driver to carry Packers pride into the next round of competition with equal parts grace and ease.
