As some of you probably know, some of the DWTS pros were on Extreme Makeover Home Edition tonight helping build a house for a family who’s father started a program called “Move to the Grove” to fight childhood obesity. Several months ago Derek tweeted that he was watching the show and it was making him tear up and that he’d like to be on it. Well, he made it happen and he got Mark, Chelsie, Tony and Anna involved as well. It’s mainly Derek, but the second, edited video has all the pros that were involved. If you want to see the rest of the Derek bits, visit purederekhough.com. If you missed the show you can probably watch the whole thing on abc.com tomorrow.
Well, interesting coincidence (or not?) – Xzibit is on site this week with Extreme Makeover Home Edition helping with a house in Wisconsin. Why is this relevant, you ask? Mainly because the episode being filmed is a DWTS themed episode. Really, it’s about using dance to fight obesity and a bunch of DWTS pros were there for the day (and Derek is apparently staying all week). That’s pretty interesting for a reason that didn’t occur to me until one of Derek’s fans at PureDerekHough asked me the question (thanks DJ!) when looking at pictures of Xzibit with the DWTS Pros also on site – “Wasn’t Xzibit rumored to be on DWTS?” Why yes, DJ, he was – and now he’s the only non-DWTS person on the Extreme Makeover set, surrounded by Derek, Mark, Chelsie, Tony and Anna. That’s too big a coincidence for me to let is slide by un-mentioned.
Well, people?? Just a coincidence?? Or, are they doing a clever tie in – DWTS pros and one of the celebs build a house? Keep in mind that Extreme Make Over Home Edition doesn’t have a season premiere until September 26 – nearly a week after DWTS own premiere.
The first several posts on PureDerekHough have pictures (and one vid) from the site – and links to where you can see more pictures of the various professionals. A couple really cute pictures of Chelsie, John.
