DWTS16 Jacoby Jones Says Dorothy Hamill Is A Big Fan, Lots Of Chemistry With Karina Smirnoff

WMAR News in Baltimore interviewed Jacoby Jones!! They talk of his moves and how he helped the Ravens win the Super Bowl. Then also discuss Dancing With The Stars. I love the part when Jacoby talks of fellow competitor Dorothy Hamill and how she greeted him when they first met up. Too cute! He also talks of Karina Smirnoff and their immediate chemistry. More below.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

PureDWTS Jacoby Jones Comes From A Long Line Of Dance Lovers In His Family

Baltimore Ravens Jacoby Jones minces no words. He’s taking Dancing With The Stars very seriously. He told E News that he plans to take it the top and win the mirror ball trophy. Check out the fun video here. Also you can see a photo from Jacoby’s childhood. Note how he wasn’t always the big, bulked up guy he is now.

Also, did you know Jacoby’s Mom loves to dance? She told the Baltimore Sun that dancing runs in their family and her son is a “natural”. Be sure to read the last paragraph below for what he told her when she told him he needed to take up ballet. LOL, so cute.

And Jones’ mother, Emily London-Jones, in a telephone interview from New Orleans, said dancing runs in the family and described her son as a natural.

“I love to dance,” said London-Jones, a popular figure with the Ravens after feeding the entire football team during the Super Bowl in New Orleans with her highly-praised Cajun cooking. “My family loves to dance, we all love to dance. Jacoby gets his dancing from me. It’s a religious thing for us, the gospel music. Jacoby grew up with the blues. It’s in his blood. We are all going to be glued to the television.

“I told Jacoby, ‘I want you to take up ballet.’ He’s pigeon-toed and he’s got to drag that foot to get those touchdowns. He told me, ‘Mama, I can’t do no ballet,’ but he has some foxtrot in him. He’s got that rhythm to coordinate. I know the judges are going to love his charisma, and his moves.”

You can read more at the Baltimore Sun.

DWTS Season 16 Rumors – A Housewife and a….

…I was going to say it…okay, I’ll say it. A Dick. :-D  Andy Dick, that is. All according to Radar Online. Keep in mind that Radar Online has gotten it wrong before…but they’ve also been right. Nothing confirmed until tomorrow.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump will be competing alongside the always outrageous Andy Dick, Radar is exclusively reporting – and we can’t wait to see him bust out the Foxtrot!

Also along for the ride will be former American Idol star Kellie Pickler, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, boxerVictor Ortiz, Baltimore Ravens’ Jacoby Jones and another comedian D.L. Hughley.

This cast is looking pretty train-wrecky and like a “Reality TV” Zone. I guess we have to hope some are wrong??

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. :-)

And the First CONFIRMED Contestant on DWTS Season 16 Is…

Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens. Just announced during a commercial break from the Oscars.

I will update here if they announce any more. :-)

EMA: Thanks to Nathan and in case you missed it, here is the promo announcing Jacoby during the Oscars. THANKS NATHAN! -Vogue

More Dreamers and Wannabes For DWTS 16: Baltimore Raven Jacoby Jones And “Small Wonder’s” Jerry Supiran

Last night, Jimmy Kimmell interviewed one of the Baltimore Ravens wide receivers, Jacoby Jones, who has been known to dance after making a touch down. Jimmy asked him if he’d do Dancing With The Stars and he definitely would. The Baltimore Sun reports about it too. Now, this would be cool! What do you think? Thanks to @DWTSgossip for this find…

Also, TMZ is reporting that “Small Wonder” star Jerry Supiran is “dying” to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Here is a take from the link….

But now, at 39 years old … and after various restaurant jobs … Supiran tells TMZ he wants to make a TV comeback and thinks he would be a perfect fit for “Dancing.”

“I’m hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days … hopefully producers will give me a chance.”

Supiran says he hasn’t heard back from the show … yet … but if he does make it, he’s GOTTA DO THE ROBOT!!!!!!

I’m not sure on this one being I’m not familiar with him? We look forward to your thoughts as always. ;)
