William Levy Photos: The 'Dancing With the Stars' Hunk Through the Years (PHOTOS)

Posted: 03/26/2012 5:54 pm Updated: 03/27/2012 8:55 am

When William Levy made his dancing debut on last week's premiere of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," ("DWTS") women across America swooned. Once the Cuban actor turned model hit the dance floor, Levy proved that he's more than just a pretty face - he can really dance, too!

But it wasn't only the audience who weakened over Levy. Even judge Bruno Tonioli called him the "hottest package in the season." And who can blame them? He's HOT!

But Levy has been stealing looks long before his debut on "DWTS." Somewhere between the shirtless scenes in JLo's music video "I'm Into You" he was named 2011's "Sexiest Man of the Year" by People en Español.

And now we get to see the man they call "The Latino Brad Pitt" dancing the cha-cha-cha every week. And, if we're lucky enough, he might even take Tonioli's advice and skip the shirt once in a while.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, here are a few things you may not know about the DWTS hunk:
