    Exclamation Legs second

    I read:" And he's supposed to be extremely professional. And he's rumored to have legs second only to Tina Turner's"

    I know who Tina Turner is. But I do not understand the meaning relates to legs. Thanks

    Re: Legs second

    Means: And he's supposed to be extremely professional. And he's rumored to have legs (that are rated) second (place) only to Tina Turner's.

    You will see this unique phrase that means comparison between first place to second place.

    She is second to none on the trampoline.

    He is second to Jim on the dance floor.

    "second to" is the key
