Ross, who earned a perfect score Monday night ahead of the finale, also has the support of his daughter, who is convinced he’ll win big.

“She called me the other day, we were FaceTiming and she said, ‘Dad, just P.S., if you happen to win, it’s going in my room,” Ross said.

But first, Ross has to beat fellow finalists NFL star Rashad Jennings and pro Emma Slater and Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei and pro Val Chmerkovskiy.

The Dancing With the Stars season 24 finale airs Tuesday, May 23, at 8 p.m. ET. on ABC.
