No contestant on this season of "Dancing With the Stars" has attracted more attention -- or controversy -- than Chaz Bono, the first transgender contestant the show has ever had.

The show reportedly beefed up security in the wake of some of the vitriol directed at him. But on the show Monday night (Sept. 19), Bono didn't seem to be letting any of that bother him.

Bono didn't snag the highest score of the evening -- the 17 for his cha-cha-cha with Lacey Schwimmer put him in the middle of the pack. But he certainly enjoyed himself, and the judges were happy (and, possibly, a tiny bit surprised) with his ebullient attitude.

Our gut feeling is that Bono will be back next week. How do you rate the performance?
