Add Lance Bass to the list of the walking wounded on the latest season of Dancing With the Stars.
While the former boy-bander is celebrating getting to the final five on the hit ABC show, he tells OK!, “I have a broken toe — stress fracture on top, bruised toe and a bruised top of the foot. They gave me a shot in it and I can’t feel pain."

Lance has had an MRI on his banged-up tootsies and has decided it’s worth the risk to continue in the competition. “I know I can possibly hurt it more," he explains. "But doctors are totally watching it and I should be fine."
Despite the injuries, he’s ready for next week with partner Lacey Schwimmer: “We have a samba and a foxtrot. They’re going to be really fun, explosive dances.”
Don’t look for them to repeat their barefoot dance experience from this week, however: “We’re not going to do anything too crazy — like not wear shoes.”
