There won’t be just a press release for the announcement of the new contenders for Dancing with the Stars greatness, there will be a live prime-time press conference to announce the newest twinkle toes in training.
ABC will air the live special on August 30th during the show “Bachelor Pad” and it will be hosted by the show’s Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke. There will even be a Q & A with the new competitors (but it might not be part of the televised coverage and may just exist on ABCs website).
So who will make the cut and be waltzing into the next season of this uber popular show?
One thing for sure, being on Dancing with the Stars can give a nice big bump to the competitors careers. Brooke Burke, Melissa Rycroft and Erin Andrews all had some great opportunities come out of the experience.
Ali Fedotowsky or Roberto Martinez
Networks love to promote their own properties so someone from Bachelor is a no-brainer. And people love these too, especially Ali. Maybe both will be on? Perhaps with a focus on them both trying to learn to dance for their wedding?
She soooo wants nay needs to be on the show. Just for costumes alone! They are so her. She’s been coy about confirming if she’s on the show or not, but she’s been in talks. She is insisting that her girls come with her though.
The Washington Post has reported that the super star quarterback Kurt Warner (of St. Louis Rams and Cardinals fame) will be joining the crew. The show has had lots of athletes but this would be the first NFL Quarterback.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Ladies (and men) love her. She’s in career limbo right now so this would be a good gig for her. And you know she’s bring in the viewers.
He’s self-effacing enough and has a silly streak that he’d so something as crazy as Dancing with the Stars. And can’t you just see him strutting his stuff in a pair of rhinestone studded pants doing the paso doble.
The Situation or Snooki?
Bringing some klass to the ballroom could be one of the cast members of the Jersey Shore. There have been rumors that Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino might come and strut his stuff and his famous abs on the dance floor. But how about Snooki! Can’t you just see the Snooki bump twirling around the room?
He had wanted to do “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” but couldn’t do it because of his legal issues. Instead he sent his wife. And he also did “Celebrity Apprentice”. Dancing with the Stars would be the next natural step, right? And now that he has only been found guilty on one count (out of 23) during his corruption trial he might be able to be – literally – a free man to do the gig!
Who would you like to see on the next season?
