Does The Bachelor’s Nick Viall Want to Dance on DWTS Season 24??

Another season approaches, another discussion about Bachelor people. :::sigh:::

Of course he does, although he plays it very coy to People.com. You can pretty much disregard what Nick says in the article (excerpts below) and assume that he would jump at the chance. As many of you know, I read Reality Steve and he knows all about that particular franchise and if he says Nick is salivating (my words, not Steve’s) to dance on DWTS, then you can take it to the bank. Dude has a better track record on the Bachelor than we do on DWTS – although we are hamstrung by our show being live. 😉

Anyway, Nick was rumored a while ago to want to do DWTS and here he is…still wanting it. Will he get asked? Probably not. The first rule of DWTS is to NOT CAMPAIGN for it. They almost never pick people who campaign. Now, that could be why Nick is playing so coy – playing hard to get? Too bad for him that Hollywood is small and word is likely out everywhere that he wants to do it badly. He’s also a dog and I wouldn’t care to see him messing with any of our ladies (although he might be good with Jenna). 🙂  He is nice looking though and maybe he can fake being a decent human being through this season enough for me to want to see him on DWTS.

Ultimately, I think the Bachelor/Bachelorette participation on DWTS comes down to DWTS casting and how well they are doing casting a particular season – if they’re having a hard time, Nick might get a shot. If they’re doing as well as they’ve done the past few seasons, there ain’t no way.  Of course, Rob Wade is working so hard to totally screw some couples over and manipulate the show to get the winner they want (have you all binge watched UNReal yet? Chop chop!), that it won’t be too much longer before they can’t get any good celebs to compete – only those with careers in desperate need of reviving.

We are still quite a ways out before we get any substantial rumors – what are the chances that I score like I did last season with Marilu?? – so don’t get your knickers in a twist about Nick (another play on words – accident, I swear) just yet. Hell, it’s not even a rumor – it’s wishful thinking. On Nick’s part. 🙂

From People.com:

“I mean, I haven’t given it much thought. I think it would be fun, you know?” Viall told Entertainment Tonight about joining DWTS next season if asked. “Who wouldn’t wanna do it?”

——-

And although the idea of competing against fellow celebrities on the ballroom floor sounds like a fun opportunity for Viall, he is currently “focused on being the Bachelor” — but that doesn’t mean he isn’t contemplating the possibility.

“[But] if they asked — I mean, I don’t think I would say my first thought wouldn’t be no, but I think anyone would feel lucky to even be considered,” he added.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Rumor: Usher To Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 24??

Has Usher been cast on Dancing With The Stars Season 24? Sources have told Jasmine Brand that this is “allegedly” true and that he’s already began shooting promos. This would be cool, but, I would take this rumor with a HUGE grain of salt. We’ve never heard on this source before….and I don’t think the show would start shooting promos this early, but, hey?

Usher has allegedly been cast on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. Sources tell us the 38-year-old singer and actor will be on season 24 of ABC’s hit dancing competition show.

We hear that Usher has already began shooting promos for the show. The network and producers are still working on finalizing other big names for the new season.

Billy Bush For Dancing With The Stars Season 24??

Mark down our first rumor for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. According to Page Six, producers has began courting Bully Bush. Let us know what you think in comments.

An insider tells Page Six that “Dancing with the Stars” has begun courting the embattled “Today” star, 44, to compete on their upcoming spring 2017 season.

“It comes in March,” the source told us. “That’s far enough away. Everybody goes on to do the apology tour. It’s ironic there is Ryan Lochte on, who he started this controversy with when he started with ‘Today.’”

If Bush inks a deal with the show, which has relaunched a number of careers, he could dance his way to a new job on a new network.

“It’s also a way for ABC to establish a relationship with him,” the source noted.

Page Six previously reported Bush is already searching for a “high-power fixer” to help his ailing image. Another source emphatically said, “His likability factor has always been off anyway as a lot of viewers find him annoying.” And this could help.

More at Page Six. I’m not sure I want to comment on this one or not? Even before this scandal, I’ve found him annoying.

DWTS Rumor Watchouts: Indystar Speculates On James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi

Indy Star is reporting that there might be a Indy race car driver to dance on Dancing With The Stars this season being there was an ABC reporter asking James Hinchcliffe questions. They speculate on other drivers too including Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi who had to ask if he could talk about it. Read on for more and good job to Courtney. She was the first person that knew something was up early yesterday morning and put two and two together. Adding: Court also posted this post at the beginning of August.

FORT WORTH, Texas — IndyCar drivers James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi confirmed to IndyStar interest from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” which begins its 23rd season Sept. 12.

Neither admitted to agreeing to participate, however, Hinchcliffe was interviewed Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway by two men who identified themselves as working for ABC.

The top-secret reveal of the 13 celebrity cast members is Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Motor sports legend Mario Andretti and his grandson, IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, both were asked if they had interest in participating in the show as Helio Castroneves did in 2007, but they declined. Mario Andretti, 76, said show officials “tried really hard” to convince him, but he said his schedule is too busy.

“I’m flattered,” he said. “I’d have done it, but it would have taken me away from too many things I’m doing.”

Hinchcliffe would only say he’s “heard other (drivers) mentioned.” Rossi was even more vague as prospects are sworn to secrecy.

“Can I talk about this?” Rossi asked an Andretti Autosport staff member, who shook her head no.

“I can’t talk about it,” he followed.
