Dancing With The Stars champion J.R. Martinez was named the Grand Marshal of the 123rd Annual Rose Parade, which was held yesterday in Pasadena, Calif.
J.R., who was seated on a float next to his expectant girlfriend, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, was thrilled to be a part of the Rose Bowl, but admitted he was nervous to flip the coin before the big game, saying he didn't want Wisconsin or Oregon fans to blame him if their team lost.
The Oregon Ducks ended up winning the record-setting game, 45-38, against the Wisconsin Badgers, who were predicted to win. Maybe J.R. was their good luck charm!
