Eccentric footballer Chad Ochocinco’s jersey number may be 85, but we think the 6’1," 192-lb ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant is totally number one for his sexy swagger and gorgeous chocolate complexion.

One of our many theories on why Ochocinco is so caliente: He was born in Miami, Florida, where the sun always shines. We’d like to frolic on the beach, “Blue Lagoon” style with the wide receiver.

Chad is busting moves on this season of “Dancing With the Stars,” and following through on his promise to “make love on the dance floor.” We’re sure it doesn’t hurt that the footballer is light on his feet and easy on the eyes.

Ladies, He's On the Market
On Saturday April 17, the charismatic Twitter master wrote, “Why am I single again?”
We’re not sure, but we’d like a chance to change your status, Chad. What’s up?

The Number 85
No one can doubt that this brother’s got flair. He changed his last name from Johnson to Ochocinco to reflect his jersey number. We’d like to kiss him ochenta y cinco times.

No Letting Go
Ochocinco has been with the wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals since he was drafted to the NFL in 2001. We can see why they wouldn’t want to let him go. They’d never find another wide receiver with such a magnificent tight end.

The Pink Panther
We love a guy that’s confident enough to rock a pair of pink jeans that coordinates perfectly with his cardigan and look sexy as hell doing it. You go boy!

Last week on ‘DWTS,’ Ochocinco and his partner Cheryl Burke tore up the rumba, scoring themselves 44 points (21 points for technical and 23 points for performance) all together.

We’re jealous of Monica who cast Ochocinco as her love interest in her music video for “Everything To Me.” What’s it like?

Chad, who used to sport a blond mohawk, is known for his flamboyance and a few catch phrases including, “child please,” and “kiss the baby.” I’d rather kiss you, Chad. Call me.

Slow Your Role
Ochocinco says it’s easy for him to embrace the dances that allow him to use his athleticism, like the Cha Cha, and has a harder time with slower moves. We’d like to slow dance with him until he gets the hang of it.

The Sexy Sportsman
Someone should write an anthem to Chad’s lips, arms, hands and thighs.

Ochocinco’s been selected to the Pro Bowl six times and has been named an All-Pro three times. He’s long been a champion in our hearts.

Yum. Even without the football tights and shoulder pads, Chad looks good enough to devour.

Swagger And Style
While we weren’t mad at the mohawk, there’s something so sexy about a brother with a bald head. We’re loving the look.
