Mark Ballas says the new season of Dancing With The Stars is “going to be an interesting one”. He remains quiet on his new partner, but, he said he met her “on location”. Below is more from E Online. He also talks on his dream partners and the selection process.
Although we won’t know Ballas’ partner for the new season until Wednesday when the full cast of celebs and their pro partners is announced on Good Morning America, he predicted that this season is “going to be an interesting one!”
Ballas remained tight-lipped on who he’s partnered with, but said he found out who it was when he showed up to a location and there she was! (So those behind-the-scenes reels showing the moment of truth are real!)
We wondered who his dream partner would be, now that he has 17 seasons (and two titles) under his belt, and Ballas does still have a few celebs in mind.
“Shakira is always one of my top picks, Jennifer Aniston is one, Ellie Goulding is another,” he revealed. “Those are a few picks. Probably will never happen, but in a dream world!”
The 29-year-old dancer-musician also quipped, “Taylor Swift maybe? Taylor Swift would be a great one. I think I would need some really high shoes for myself, but if Taylor Swift did the show, I think this is the one time the height doesn’t matter.”
So make that his “Wildest Dreams” partner.
The stars and the pros don’t get a say in the selection process; rather, the producers choose the pairings based on myriad factors, including height, size, and personality.
