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.

It’s Official: The Bachelor Chris Soules is Now a DWTS Contestant

Miss Heidi and Vogue here: We’ve known for a while, really. And we’ve had sources – and other media outlets, including US Magazine which made an assumption and stated it as fact that Chris was the final DWTS contestant and met with producers. Then yesterday, Chris confirmed he was doing Dancing With The Stars on Direct From Hollywood. Chris also just confirmed this news on Good Morning America this morning.

Our source has had other things to say about Chris, as you can read in the comments on another post. If you thought he had little to no rhythm on The Bachelor, you were right. :-)

Stay tuned! We’ll post some video from Good Morning America as soon as we can. Chris is also going to be on Kelly and Michael today.

ETA: ABC posted an announcement as well as Chris And Whitney Carson’s Promo Shoot pic. See the story and photo here!!

ETA2: Here is some GMA video thanks to @idolxfactor1…

ETA3: Thanks to People, below is Chris and Witney’s first meeting… Read more..

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 20 Watchout: The Bachelor’s Chris Soules To Dance?

It seems every season, a Bachelor wants to dance or is rumored to dance. I say “no” to the idea again. What do you think? Thanks to Vin for this heads up from E News

While the season is just getting started on ABC, Chris (aka Prince Farming!) tells E! News he’s definitely open to doing more reality TV after his run on The Bachelor comes to an end. Specifically Dancing With the Stars!

“At this point, why not?” Chris says. “I went through The Bachelorette and never thought I’d do that and did it and it was a great experience. Now being the Bachelor, it’s been an extraordinary experience.”

He continues. “I’m open to a lot of opportunities, I’d be willing to consider these sort of things. But I’m going to do what’s best for me and do what’s right and what I feel is right for my future.”

But Chris is a little nervous about one aspect of joining DWTS, telling us, “I think I need to do some yoga because watching those people and some of the stuff they do…I’m not a very flexible guy, so I am going to need to get limbered up if that’s going to happen!”

DWTS18 Watchout: The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Not Asked To Do Dancing With The Stars

Remember when we previously reported for how Juan Pablo Galavis might dance? Well, according to Whio.com via Reality Steve it’s a no go. He hasn’t been asked …yet anyway….

Reality Steve revealed in his weekly video blog chat thing that Juan Pablo will not be on Dancing With the Stars next season, despite his declaration to Mario Lopez the week of his premiere, “I like dancing a lot.” With such a strong expression of emotions, we’re surprised ABC didn’t scoop him right up then and there to shake his bon-bon (Ricky Martin!) on TV. Except that we’re not at all surprised. See, his homophobic comments, saying that it wouldn’t be good for children to watch a gay Bachelor because they are “more pervert,” happened.

And according to Reality Steve, that was enough not only for the network to ask Juan Pablo not to attend Sean and Catherine’s wedding, but also to nix him from consideration for DWTS.

You can read the full article at Whio.com via Reality Steve.

I can’t say I am disappointed in this news. How about you?

DWTS 16 Preliminary Power Rankings – Part I

So it’s time once again for me to gaze into my crystal ball before the premiere and try to take a wild (but educated) guess at how things are gonna pan out this season – who’s gonna be good, who’s gonna be bad, who’s gonna stick around, and who might get sent packing early.  Admittedly, this kind of snuck up on me – after my prolonged hiatus after season 15, season 16 seems to have arrived at breakneck speed and I’m just struggling to keep up.  Guess that’s what happens when one bad season turns you off of a show completely…don’t know that I’ve been this dubious about a new season of my favorite show since season 5 of Nip/Tuck 8-O

For those just tuning in, a few words of explanation about how I arrive at these rankings.  It’s a combination of factors – how good (or bad) of a dancer I think they’ll be, how much of a fanbase I think they do or don’t have, how likeable/unlikeable I think they’ll be to viewers.  So all those factors considered – this is how I predict the eliminations to shake out.  And they can (and usually do) change after seeing the first episode :-P So in today’s edition, I tackle the bottom half of the couples: the ones I don’t see lasting past the middle of the competition.  Here we go…

12.) Lisa & Gleb – It pains me to say this, considering that they’re my favorite couple, but I’m afraid my favorite Real Housewife of Beverly Hills may be the first on the chopping block this season :-( There seems to be several factors working against them – and the one that concerns me the most is the fact that Lisa’s a reality star, and she’s a Real Housewife at that.  Considering that TPTB have avoided casting from that franchise like the plague until now, and that the Housewives seem to be some of the more maligned reality tv stars amongst DWTS fans (some DWTS fans reeeeeallllly don’t like Housewives – trust me, I’ve gotten tweets complaining, as if I have any control over casting!), I’m worried that some viewers have already written her off, sight unseen.  Then again, I could be completely wrong – since we have no precedent for a Real Housewife on DWTS, how do I know that RHOBH fans won’t tune in and vote in droves for our British lass? :-)  They’re also contending with the fact that Gleb is a brand new pro without much of a fanbase (and without the benefit of being visible to the DWTS viewers already, a la Sharna in the troupe or Lindsay on SYTYCD) – although I daresay Gleb’s stunning good looks certainly don’t seem to be hurting them ;-) Besides those two hurdles, I also worry that they’re just too laid back – their rehearsals are neither memorably good nor memorably bad, which could make them blend into the woodwork amongst some of the bigger personalities this season.  And we don’t really have any idea what Lisa’s dancing prowess is like, nor do we know what Gleb’s teaching/choreographing prowess is like – they could be really good, they could be really bad, they could just “be”.  I’m hoping that we’re in for a pleasant surprise with these two, but my gut’s telling me that they’re probably not going to make it past the first few weeks of the season.

DWTS Season 16 – FIRST Rehearsal Videos!!

Ya’ll (yes, just watched Kellie) are going to have to put up with me occasionally today as I believe Vogue might still be having computer issues. Or internet issue. The end result is the same. I apologize that I do not have time to watch and comment on all the videos, so I won’t add any commentary and I’ll leave that to you all in the comments. I did watch Kellie and am suitably impressed. :-) All the videos can be found at DWTS You Tube Channel.

DWTS Season 16 – Sean Lowe’s Big Announcement

In what was a surprise to exactly NO ONE, Sean was on GMA this morning with his :::cough:::temporary:::cough::: fiance and announced that he and Peta will be the 12th couple on DWTS.

They even had Peta on the show. Peta said they’d been keeping it a secret for a long time – I take that to mean that they’ve been training although they kinda claim that they haven’t been doing any training thus far.

ETA: Yes, they are very ambiguous on his status – I think he’s been training elsewhere, but they may try to make it look like he just started – much the way GMA tried. But the way everything was phrased, I got the impression he had been training. It was a very short segment – I think because the segment with Valerie Harper went longer.

Sean’s in these two videos – thanks to @Taryn_Wilke!!

UPDATE: This is Vogue and here is a video from GMA today….

Be Sure To Watch GMA Every Day Next Week, Another Rumor On DWTS Sean Lowe Addition

Hey, just some media alerts!!! Be watching GMA every day next week. Each day a celebrity is suppose to be interviewed about Dancing With The Stars counting down to the show’s two-hour season premiere on March 18th.

Also, one of our readers named Angela is reporting that she saw a video posted last night at “The Bachelor” Facebook page with Sean Lowe and a “behind the scenes” look of the Dancing With The Stars title shoot. In the video, Sean commented about “how he was excited and has his work cut out for him”. Then 5 minutes later, Angela went to refresh the page and the video had been deleted and replaced with a sneak peek of the finale of The Bachelor. Angela says the video with Sean was about 4 minutes long and showed parts with Pitbull. All the pros and stars were also talking.

Anyway, we aren’t sure what to think at this time, but, add this info to the heavily rumored 12th contestant announcement. Also note that Tuesday morning Sean Lowe is scheduled to make a guest appearance on GMA. Most likely he will be interviewed about the “The Bachelor” finale, but, it could have something to do with Dancing With The Stars as well? He also has a teleconference planned for Tuesday. So, stay tuned. ;)

ADDING: Codebear2 dmed us at twitter (and I think Court mentioned this too in one of her comments) that they could also announce that Sean Lowe is dancing on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night during The Bachelor – After The Final Rose. This would also make the best sense if they want to pull in fans of The Bachelor.
