DWTS Season 10 – Rumor Roundup Part II

Okay, where was I?  My first post from yesterday on this topic  ended with Lou Ferrigno, so I’ll pick it up from there.  As I mentioned yesterday, the rumors about who will be on DWTS often start a couple seasons before they actually appear on the show, so we decided to list those rumors from the last several months once again – just in case. :-)

But first we have a NEW case of a celeb wanting to be on the show and telling everyone she wants to be on the show, at least according to OK! Magazine:

Former Boy Meets World star and current The Dish host Danielle Fishel aspires to be on Dancing With The Stars in 2010.

“I’ve told them really straight forwardly that I really want to do the show, and unfortunately they’ve got thousands of other celebrities that feel the exact same way,” she tells me. “There are so many people who want to do that show because it’s a real classy show, especially for reality TV. I told them I’m interested, they know I’m interested, and hopefully one day they’ll think I’d be a good fit for the show. “

Her dream partner is Maksim.

“He is the biggest, manliest dancer they have on that show, and I think for me to have a male dance partner, I would want someone that I felt very feminine next to. I think he’s the manliest dancer on the show.”

Okay, on with the roundup:

Leslie Jordan – he’s that cute little comedian with the southern accent.  As I said originally, this was likely wishful thinking on Leslie’s part – plus he might even be shorter than Chelsie. :-)  This is one of the rumors that I desperately wanted to be true.

Heh, I just realized that I called both Debi Mazar AND Aaron Carter in July. Dang, that was early – which means that anything I hear NOW could also be true.

Greg Louganis – This was according to Celebuzz and I was so-so on it at the time, in terms of likelihood, but I think Greg’s appearance on last season in that Olympian segment solidified his chances  to be on either this season or in the fall.  I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Greg in 2010 – one season or the other. :-)

Jordan Knight - this one was twitter based, but then that’s how Debi Mazar and Aaron Carter started out. Who’s to say Jordan wasn’t on the list, but Aaron got picked instead. Jordan could be this seasons Aaron.

Dean McDermott – around the same time that Jordan was being rumored, there was a ton of talk about Dean – often by his wife.  I believe they did talk to him so maybe we’ll see him this year.

Beth Horn – this one was more of a campaign to get her on the show than any real rumor she would indeed be on.  I don’t know if campaigns have any impact whatsoever, and I never saw anything other than campaigning to indicate she might be on the show. That casts a good deal of doubt on the odds.  We’ll see!!

LOL – I found the Kelly Osbourne thing and called a few things correctly.  I said Mark or Derek as her partner and she was rumored to be originally partnered with Mark before she told producers that she wanted someone she could push around – so she was subsequently moved to Louis.  Good call, Kelly. :-)

Shari Sheppard, Alicia Sacramone, Andrew Firestone and Aubry O’Day were on a list of rumored cast members that I had not seen anywhere else other than the single blog – and that list included some HIGHLY implausible people, so I’m thinking it was more of a wish list than actual, potential celebs.  I could be wrong.

Jeremy Roenick, Tori Spelling and Lynda Carter – these were either said jokingly or were strictly twitter related.  I think Lynda is the only plausible one at this point.

Let’s not forget the ubiquitous Paula Abdul rumor. That one was so prevalent before last season that I’m not even going to provide a link. Heck, Conrad Greene basically admitted that he asked her.

LaToya Jackson – it was widely reported that the only reason she wasn’t on last season was because of Michael’s death (Jermaine was also occassionally included in this rumor). LOTS of people are pretty convinced that she will be on this coming season and that she’ll demand Derek as a partner.  At the point this becomes true, I won’t know whether to jump off a cliff or be intrigued by the possibility.

Brandy and her brother – could have been mass confusion or a mix up. Who knows.

Dan Cortese – Dan was told – and proclaimed to the world on Twitter – that he was in the running for the last guy spot last season.  That makes him a possibility for this season, in my book.  I’m cool with this because he’s hot. ;-)

Jennifer Grey – Jennifer was rumored for last season as I mentioned in a post about Joanna Krupa (and correctly called her partner as Derek), and she is also being rumored for this season. I think she’s likely to show up sooner or later.

That should bring us pretty much up to the “current” rumors as I’ve been posting then since Season 9 ended.  Once we get farther along, I’ll make a complete list of previous rumors and current rumors. I do like lists, you know. :-)

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. :-)

DWTS Season 10…Possible Male Contenders

I loved all of your feedback with my female contenders and I would agree with most of them that Benji is not a likely choice and after I posted him I felt like it was a bad decision but it is what it is :)  I’m way excited about my male contenders so let’s get started!!!

GUYS
Jeremy Sumpton (20; Actor)…You’ll recognize him from his role in Perter Pan and Friday Night Lights!  He’s so adorable and I think he’d be the hotty pototty of the season :)

Partner: Chelsie Hightower…She’s closest in age to Jeremy and she deserves another smoking hot partner!  And I think they look adorable together!
DWTS

Zac Hanson (24, Singer): The youngest brother in the Hanson band all grown up :)  I think he’d be a comedian on the show and maybe he could give Harold Wheeler a point or two!

Partner: Anna Demidova…I think this partnering is way more up her alley and she’d do an outstanding job with Zac!  I think he’d like a little Russian hotty to tango with, as long as it’s okay with his wife!
DWTS

Yadier Molina (27; STL Cards Catcher)…it’s about time we have a baseball player in the ballroom!  I know this would cut into spring training but he’d make a great addition to the ballroom!

Partner: Julianne Hough…She is always amazing with atheletes and I don’t think she’d have any problems kicking Yadier into shape!
DWTS

Ian Somerhalder (31, Actor): The new bad boy vampire in The Vampire Diaries and how hot is he!  We need another dirty bad boy running the ballroom!

Partner: Lacey Schwimmer… Did you have any doubts that Lacey wouldn’t be with the bad boy!  Of course this couple would be dirty sexy and I’m sure they’d have intense chemistry throughout!
DWTS

David Beckham (34, Athlete): Soccer Stud!  He’d be amazing to watch and I could see him being shirtless all the time and I’m okay with that :)

Partner: Cheryl Burke…She knows how to work partners that never wear shirts so she’s perfect for him!
DWTS

Keith Urban (41; Country Singer): Nothing like a country sensation!  He’s well known in the country music world and for marrying Nicole Kidman and I have a feeling he could be a diamond in the rough for this competition!

Partner: Kym Johnson…She really knows how to pull the best out of her partners and I think she could do great things for Keith!
DWTS

Greg Louganis (50; Olympic Diver)…hit his head and STILL WON THE OLYMPICS!  We need an amazing olympic athlete in the ballroom!

Partner: Edyta Sliwinska…She needs a partner that she can take all the way and I think Greg and her could be strong contenders together!
DWTS

Arnold Schwarzenegger (62; Governor of CA): He’s done everything else so why not put him in the ballroom :)

Partner: Anna Trebunkskaya…I think Mr. Schwarzenegger needs a firey red head to keep him in line!
DWTS

Let’s hear your thoughts!

Dancing with the Stars 2010 – Season 10

Okay, this is *probably* not true, but it would certainly be hilarious…Ozzy following in Kelly’s footsteps?? LOL. ;-)

On Twitter, I’ve seen reference to AJ from the BSB (or is it NKotB?? I can never keep them straight) as being a possible contestant next season. I’ve also seen a campaign for Crystal Chappell (formerly of the soap opera Guiding Light) to be on DWTS. For some reason they were tweeting Derek – maybe they tweeted all the pros. Hard to say.

In pure conjecture-
It was rumored that Greg Louganis would be on this season. It was also rumored that Nadia Comaneci would be on this season. It was also said that LaToya (and possibly Jermaine) Jackson were a lock for this season prior to Michael’s untimely death. Well, we’ve seen a lot of LaToya and a good bit of Jermaine in relation to this season’s show – plus the show got the rights to Michael’s songs for a tribute where other shows had failed. Sure, everyone in the family was a fan, but…gee, wonder if Latoya and Jermaine will be on next season? ;-) Then there’s this video from Tuesday night –

Wow. Nadia and Greg – two rumored contestants for this season make an appearance. Who wants to bet that one or both will be on next season?? And how about Bill Walton as the requisite older gentleman?

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor – Greg Louganis

This rumor is, so far, only Twitter-based. I got nothing else on it – yet. :-)

Tweet Greg Louganis 

Very interesting, IMO. I think I would be all for this one. Give him to Karina, I think.
