This season one of the stars is J.R .Martinez who was an actor on All My Children and an Iraq war veteran who was severely burned when he hit a landmine. He's gone through 33 surgeries since the incident, but obviously he's still going strong. Most people would probably go through severe depression and hibernate in their home for the rest of their lives, but J.R. is a perfect example of what positivity can do for your life.
When you see J.R. dance and talk, you see a confident, jubilant young man who doesn't seem the least bit insecure about what he looks like. I see his smiling face and think, "Wow - that's a good looking guy!" Really, his true beauty shines through everything.

What we can all learn from watching J.R. is that beauty is indeed skin deep. No matter what physical ailments or insecurities you may endure, you can overcome them with a positive attitude.
