On February 22, 2013 Arnold announced that she will be a professional on Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars, in which she was paired up with professional boxer, Victor Ortiz. She and Ortiz came in 8th place. After spending the next four seasons as a member of the troupe, she became a pro again in Season 21, paired with soldier and Legion of Honour recipient Alek Skarlatos, who made the headlines as one of three soldiers who took down a terrorist on a train in France; together they managed to finish third. The following season, Arnold was paired with the charismatic Boyz II Men singer Wanyá Morris, and despite their status as early frontrunners, the two came in fourth place. The following season, she was paired with recently retired NFL wide receiver Calvin Johnson, known as "Megatron". They managed to finish third. The following season, she was paired with recently retired MLB catcher David Ross. They managed to finish second thanks to the fan voting despite low scores from the judges.
