Talks Are Underway For Dancing With The Stars Season 17, Rumors Of Younger Audience

In a new interview with EnStarz, co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet tells them that talks have began for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. She comments how the cast hasn’t been picked yet, but, she thinks producers are working on it. She also said she’s heard rumors of a younger audience watching the show more than past seasons and then she picks a young celebrity for who she’d like to see dance. She also picks out a few older celebs. More in detail below and at EnStarz.

With production on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars well underway, Enstars spoke to the co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet about what she hopes to see on the dance competition – with one Call Me Maybe singer as a frontrunner.

The mother of four confirmed that production for the new season has already begun, saying the team behind the show “hardly take a break all year.” Though the cast has not yet been picked, she said she thinks producers are in talks of who to bring onto the ABC show.

She has “heard rumors” of a younger audience watching the show going into season 17 than in the past seasons. With that in mind, Burke-Charvet revealed who she would love to see on the show, picking out her favorites.

“It’s always exciting to see a new cast join us, it keeps the energy really fresh,” she said. “I’ve always said I’d like to see Suzanne Summers, Carly Rae Jepsen – I think she would be great – Chris Koffer would be amazing [because] I’m a Glee fan.”

I hope they will won’t forget their older audience too, but, I love the thought of Carly Rae Jepson dancing! I also love the idea of Suzanne Summers and Chris Koffer dancing!!! Let us know what you think of everything Brooke commented about.

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 .

Brooke Burke Charvet’s Dancing With The Stars Dream Cast And The Formal Selection Process

Brooke told the Huffington Post that she hasn’t heard any rumors yet on the new cast of Dancing With The Stars, but, says she can understand them wanting to keep the Kardashian thing going (please no Brooke! I don’t understand it at all. :-| ). Below is what she says about her dream cast….

“I have always said Oscar De La Hoya — I don’t know if he would ever do it — because I think he would be a blast,” Brooke dishes. “I think a quirky crazy one, because we always need one crazy, is Richard Simmons. I would love to see Suzanne Somers. She would be great.”

Although Brooke says she is not involved in the formal selection process, she does note that over a bottle of wine at dinner with cast members, the group does make a great “wish” list that often gets the producer’s attention.

And Brooke’s quick to add that the show does like controversy, so you never know — Rick Santorum are you listening?

Be sure to read the full story at the Huffington Post.

So, what do you think of her dream cast if the producers are listening? I think Richard Simmons and Suzanne Somers would be excellent choices.

DWTS Season 11 – More Media Again

Pay attention to the first couple videos since they will be a jumping off point for a future post. ;-) The last half of the video, I mean. And have I mentioned lately how much I adore Tom Bergeron??

Do David and Jennifer have an unfair advantage?

Possible Controversy? Apparently not.

Erin talks about Season 11, Florence Henderson – blast from the past.

Tony talks to Extra about DWTS and Audrina – he thinks he has a shot at winning.

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. :-)
