In the past, when twitter was…newer…celebs would immediately follow the show and their pro on twitter. We busted a TON of celebs that way. But recent seasons have seen either the celebs wise up a bit, or DWTS producers telling them to NOT follow them or their pros on social media. Antonio may not have gotten the memo, because following the show twitter and ONE female pro is rather…telling. 🙂 All that to say that I got curious and started looking around twitter a bit. We always do, because we often find stuff in twitter searches – but this season I hadn’t really started yet. This is NOT the rumor round up – this is me looking around twitter. Courtney will be doing the rumor round up as per usual when we get closer to the reveal.
So, when looking at Antonio, one thing led to another, then someone told me that Chase Chrisley was following OfficialDWTS on twitter. Which took me to the OfficialDWTS twitter, where I saw an unknown (to me) singer named Emma Lock also recently started following them. Now, Chase is following none of the pros and Emma is following ALL of them…and also alot of the SYTYCD dancers. Chase and his sister have talked about doing DWTS before, so that could be the reason for him…and Emma seems to love dancers. So perhaps both of them are a reach.
Speaking of Chase – his sister has wanted to do the show for a while and she was also talking about it the other day on twitter – which likely means she won’t be on the show. But she campaigning and it works more these days than it has in the past.
Another recent follow to DWTS is Brielle Biermann – Kim Zolciak’s daughter and star of a show on Bravo called Don’t be Tardy. I suspect she is following DWTS just because her mom was on the show, but one never knows.
In the vein of DWTS family related stuff – another Hough cousin really wanted to the show but her brother got picked instead. But she tweeted this today – and we’re in the right time frame:
good news is the best!

Finally, one of the mob wives is…joking, but campaigning at the same time, I think. 🙂 I don’t think she would be retweeting everyone who says “you should be on DWTS” if she were actually on the show. But I guess you never know. 🙂
