Indy Champ Tony Kanaan Hasn’t Received A Call From DWTS, But, Still Might?

Awww, this will make Court sad. According to USA Today, Indy champ Tony Kanaan still hasn’t received a call to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17, and yet, it’s still possible he could get a call. Below is more….

“I might be getting a call, but I won’t know until right before they announce it,” Kanaan told USA TODAY Sports on Friday during a break in preparation for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Baltimore. “It’s so confidential. They want to keep the announcement a secret. They don’t like leaks, so I really don’t know.”

Kanaan said he won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t make the cut.

“To be honest, I won’t be unhappy if it doesn’t happen,” Kanaan said. “With all the things we have going on, I cannot afford to take off for however many weeks it would take. If they call me, I’ll do it, but right now it’s a busy time of my life.”

Sad, as I hoping he would dance too. Then again, maybe he might? All eyes on Wednesday, All, and be sure to read the full article at USA Today.

New Report Says Tony Kanaan Has Auditioned For Dancing With The Stars, Waiting For Word Back

USA Today Sports is reporting that Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan has auditioned for Dancing With The Stars and he could find out tomorrow (Friday) if he makes the cut. Here is more….

Tony Kanaan is waiting to hear back from the show.

The reigning Indy 500 winner told the Indianapolis Star that he has auditioned to be on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and could find out as soon as Friday whether or not he made next season’s cast of the popular show.

Don’t get too excited though because if you’ve been following the site, this isn’t the first time it’s been reported that Tony would find out on a “Friday” if he was going to dance. Courtney reported that he was waiting for an invitation and he’d find out something last Friday as you might remember. None the less, it seems this rumor isn’t going away anytime soon and many of us are glad for that. Bring on Tony TPTB!

PureDWTS Season 17 Cast Rumor – Tony Kanaan To Find Out Tomorrow if He’s In or Not

Sometimes I love being from Indianapolis…and this is one of them :-) Our local news outlets usually do a pretty good job of keeping up with the goings-on of the Indycar drivers during the off-season…and a few minutes ago, this article popped up on my Indystar app:

Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan is hoping for an invitation to go dancing. On television, no less.

The Brazilian IndyCar Series driver said he met with a “Dancing With the Stars” cast coordinator during last month’s visit to The ESPYs in Los Angeles. Kanaan told The Indianapolis Star he might know Friday if he’s been selected.

That doesn’t mean he’ll be able to share that news, however. The cast is scheduled to be announced on “Good Morning America.”

If selected, Kanaan would be the second IndyCar Series driver to appear on the reality show that draws some of the best ratings in television — often more than 20 million viewers a show.

We first reported on Tony as a rumor last month. I find it interesting that he offered up a specific date – tomorrow – as the day he would likely know whether he was in or out.  Maybe tomorrow is the day they finalize the cast? If so, hopefully the rumor mill starts spinning a little faster and we get some more names leaked.  Anywho, if he met with a casting director last month at the ESPY’s, I’d say Tony is looking like a pretty legit rumor – and he sounds pretty gung-ho about it.  I think they’d only benefit from casting him – he’s very current, he’s hugely popular with race fans, and he’s an athlete that’s not another football player :-) What do you guys think? Is it sounding like Tony might be a legit possibility for season 17?

Tony Kanaan “In Talks” To Do Dancing With The Stars Season 17?

Finally, a rumor for Dancing With The Stars Season 17! Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan told Hollywood Life that he’s “in talks” to do Dancing With The Stars. Below is quote from the link.

Yeah, we’re in talks. Obviously, Hélio did such a great job representing the drivers and the Brazilians. Me being a Brazilian, I’m going to have a tough task but I’ll try. We’ll see. If it’s the right time, I’ll definitely accept it and go try it.

What do you think: Tony Kanaan for Dancing With The Stars Season 17? And if true, who do you think would make a good partner for him?

Seems like a cool guy to me? Bring him on. For more, see Hollywood Life.

Heidi: Works for me and the timing is about right. It’s Mid-July and the rehearsals will probably start late August/early September.
