E Online interviewed Tom Bergeron about Dancing With The Stars Season 18. In the interview, they ask him about Erin Andrews and the new Switch Up dance (sounds like he’s much like us about it?) which you can read about below. Lots more at the link including his thoughts about Brooke Burke Charvet and who he’s excited to see dance.
“Erin and I first worked together when we did the Scripps Spelling Bee for ABC back a few years ago,” Bergeron said. “She’s very energetic and smart and funny, and I think she’s going to bring all of that to the show.”
But he did have some advice for Andrews, which he shared with her over dinner.
“I just basically said to her, ‘Trust your gut, and if you want to—because we’re friends—take a shot at me.’ I was telling her about when Drew Lachey filled in some seasons ago for a few weeks, he would take these shots at me, and I love that, so I told her not to hold back.”
The other major change in store for fans is the new “Switch Up” twist, which will give America the chance to change up the dance partners. And some of the contestants have already expressed their dislike of the new twist, which pro Val Chmerkovskiy called “horrible.”
“I’m not sure yet how it’s going to play out. I don’t know if it’s just for a week or whatever they do it they’re going to do it for the balance of the season, so I’m kind of as curious as you and the dancers are, as to how this is going to play,” Bergeron said. “It’s either going to be very intriguing and exciting or a trainwreck.”
In case you haven’t seen this yet, below is a second promo for Dancing With The Stars Season 18 in high quality! Some of these faces are cracking me up!! Too fun!

Ok, that is all for now except I’m kind of wondering what Tom Bergeron means with this tweet?

It’s that time again! Every season Charlie’s Angels like to dissect the Las Vegas Odds in a weekly post and then get your thoughts to see if you agree or disagree with us and the odds makers. Note that before we start, we usually do this on Fridays or Saturdays depending on our time. So, if you don’t see it posted yet, don’t feel you need to contact us or post about it in comments to let us know about the new odds. It’s appreciated, but, we already know and are very aware of them, but, we are just waiting for all three of us to comment and get them ready.
Ok, so let’s get started with our very first Las Vegas Odds post for Dancing With The Stars Season 18!! Below is what Sports Bovada is reporting. Does this look about right to you or are the odds makers way off? Read more..
