Well, it was only a matter of time before this rumor was coming. Star Pulse is reporting The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe might be dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 21. What do you think if true?
The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe hands out her final rose next week, and there are rumors that she may already have another reality TV gig in the works — Dancing with the Stars Season 21.
The 30-year-old dance instructor, who was thrilled to meet pro-dancer Derek Hough on Good Morning America before she started filming her season, would not be the first Bachelor franchise star to become a DWTS celebrity dancer.
Will Kaitlyn, who took third place on Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor, follow in her ex-TV boyfriend’s footsteps? After Soules proposed to Whitney Bischoff on his farm in Iowa, he headed straight to L.A. to join the Season 20 cast of Dancing with the Stars.
Other Bachelor and Bachelorette stars who have danced their way into the spotlight are Melissa Rycroft (Jason Mesnick’s season), Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe, and Trista Sutter.
Although spoilers indicate that Kaitlyn Bristowe gets engaged at the final rose ceremony on July 27, what she does for a living has never been revealed. Kaitlyn’s bio on ABC states she “dance instructor” — which would be a perfect “in” for DWTS — but there is no word on where teaches dance, or if this is a job she had long before she joined Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor.
You can read more at Star Pulse.
My thoughts: Everytime I’ve said “NO” to a Bachelor (which I feel like doing again this time), I end up liking them. And she sure looks great with Derek at the link. So, I’m keeping still this time. Though I doubt this info has much merit since it’s from a tabloid source.
Congratulations to Mark Ballas. The Dancing With The Stars pro is opening a new dance studio called “The Mark Ballas Dance and Performing Arts Studio“. Below is more information from Broadway World. You can also read more at the Official site about the Opening Gala and how you can attend, the coaches, Mark, and more.
Mark Ballas of ABC’s Dancing with The Stars will take the wraps off the new Mark Ballas Dance and Performing Arts Studio at a Grand Opening Gala Saturday, August 1, at 6:30 p.m. at Charlotte’s, The Club at Longview.
The Gala will be a dance lover’s dream with the Dancing with the Stars pro meeting current and prospective students as he showcases his first franchised dance studio in the U.S.
Ballas, nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Choreography in 2011, is a singer/songwriter/musician who has danced for 20 seasons on the ABC blockbuster dancing series, holding numerous “firsts”, including being the only dancer to win multiple Dancing with The Stars competitions with Olympic champions.
Ballas dancing studio franchises are being offered regionally and nationally by Ballas and longtime Charlotte dance ballroom innovator, Sabrina Berg. The new franchise offers dance instructor in both Ballroom and Latin styles of dance in private and group settings.

DWTS 19 Champ Alfonso Ribiero And Justin Timberlake Do “The Carlton” During Celebrity Golf Tournament
This is too fun. I guess after a disappointing swing during the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe on Friday, Alfonso Ribiero dropped his golf club and busted out in “The Carlton”. Afterwards, Justin Timberlake couldn’t resist and joined right in. Please, someone, get these two to do it in a special performance on Dancing With The Stars. Hilarious! I love this!
Has singer Andy Grammer been asked to do Dancing With The Stars Season 21? It sure sounds like it to me. Below is more from B975.com. I’d love this it were to happen. What do you think and who can you see him paired with?
Andy Grammer appeared on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars twice this past season, singing his hit “Honey, I’m Good” during a memorable Derek Hough dance routine. Now the singer says he’s “open” to being a contestant on the show.
“I’m not really a dancer, but…I’m very competitive and..it seems like it would be a fun challenge,” Andy tells ABC Radio when asked if he’d like to actually be a cast member on the long-running dance competition. “I’ve definitely thought about it, I’m open to it and we’ll see what happens.”
Asked if he’s actually been asked to compete, Andy teases, “I can’t reveal anything….I don’t know. It’s not a ‘yes,’ it’s not a ‘no.’ It’s not a ‘no.'”
Even if Andy won’t admit whether he’s negotiating to appear on the show, he will own up to discussing it with a musician friend of his — one who competed on season 14 of the show.
“I’m really good friends with Gavin DeGraw, and he’s told me it’s really fun,” Andy tell ABC Radio. “So I’ve talked to him about it. It’s cool.”
