After suffering an injury during the week of semi-finals, J.R. Martinez is worried he’ll get the boot!

Poor J.R. Martinez! After leading the season on Dancing with the Stars, the war vet hurt his ankle before performances Nov. 14 and fell on the leader board. Now, for the first time, he’s scared of elimination tonight.

“J.R. has been mentioning he’s nervous about getting voted off tonight,” a set insider tells “Usually he’s pretty confident, but after his scores last night, he’s not so sure. He knows he’s not as famous as Rob [Kardashian] and Ricki [Lake].”

Even though he’s not a household name, J.R., 28, has charmed the socks off America this season with his outgoing personality, positive attitude and slick moves on the dance floor. In fact, he’s our pick to win the Mirror Ball Trophy!

Do YOU think J.R. will get eliminated tonight or is he overreacting?
