Marlee Matlin (born August 24, 1965) is an American actress from the village of Morton Grove, Illinois. She also appeared in TV show programs such as Dancing with the Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice 4. She has been one of Toadette's friends since the airing of Dancing with the Stars season 14.
Matlin confirmed to take part in Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Fictional Cook Off on February 28, 2013, two days before week 3 of Ben and Toad's Contest 2 occurs.
In week 4 of Ben and Toad's Contest season 1, Matlin should have been fired on the fourth week by Donald Trump and Koto Okubo, but the judges chose to fire out Kirstie Alley and Hatsue Ono instead of her. Marlee Matlin appeared on Ben and Toad's Contest. Matlin's partner was originally Fabian Sanchez, but Fabian want to participate in the show and she chose Corky Ballas instead, because Corky is Mark Ballas's oldest dancer. Matlin was the fifth contestant eliminated on the fifth week of the show, the first deaf person, the first season 6 contestant, and the second contestant born on August 24 to be eliminated. When she danced the Samba, she earned a 22/30, along with her same birthday contestant Allen Ford. Her partner was the same as season 6 for week 20 (the finale week). On week 3, season 12 contestant Petra Nemcova was a guest judge. On the first three weeks when Pembroke's contestants get eliminated, she was the last contestant to be called safe.
Matlin is currently in season 2, in the interviews with all of season 1. She will be at the Mike Gould Classic on March 30, 2013.
