Every season we have campaigns run by stars or their fanbases to get them on DWTS. Starting last season, DWTS has gone out of its way to encourage massive campaigning – yet they pick no one who has a serious campaign up and running. Why do they do this?? Who knows? I often wonder if they do it to clog up twitter so badly that those of us who look can’t separate the campaign from the rumor. I do know I’ve seen a few campaigners in the last few days that I don’t think we’ve mentioned before – and some that we have, like Shelley Martinez, who haven’t given up just yet. We’ve covered a few that were new to this season, such as Michael E. Knight, Randy Jones and Ellen Kay.
So who are the newbies?? Or, if not newbies, people I haven’t seen campaigning before? Let’s start with Christine Lakin. Christine is an actress with a pretty long resume but nothing HUGE – which means she’s perfect for DWTS. You might know her as Al from “Step by Step”. It’s not ringing a bell with me, but I’m sure she has a lot of fans, since she has people campaigning for her on abc.com -and she’s up for it!
Christine is also listed as “choreographer” for a few theater productions. So, ringer by talent??
Next on the list is Tracy DiMarco from Jerseylicious – I wouldn’t say Tracy is campaigning, per se, just that I saw a tweet from her where she indicated that she was up for it. Of course, I can’t find that tweet NOW. You’ll have to take my word for it. I think it more likely that she has fans campaigning for her. I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I have seen a few episodes of Jerseylicious and she would be an interesting girl to have on the show. Kind of a female Situation with a bit of a hair and makeup obsession. Seriously, I like Jerseylicious a thousand times more than the two episodes I saw of Jersey Shore – no, I don’t know why. Would love to see her with Derek or Mark simply because I don’t think either of them would know what to do with her….although Derek did have Lil’ Kim and he handled that very well. Then there’s Maks – who puts down all Jersey related shows for how they portray the NYC metropolitan area. THAT would be fun.
Next up….the Real Melina. No, I don’t know her last name. She’s one of the ladies of the WWE! She’s also a model who has been in several pagents. Is she up for it?? Well, let’s just say I would pay BIG MONEY to see this:
She’s into it!!
