PureDWTS Poll: Who is Your Favorite “One-And-Done” Pro?

They got one season to show us their stuff as a pro – and then we never saw them (as a pro) again.  They’re the pros whose tenure on DWTS was woefully short, and for some of them, we wonder if things had been different if they had gotten a different partner, or had a bit more experience, etc. etc. etc. But I keep seeing a few names in particular that seem to pop up in the comments section, and it got me thinking: is it time for TPTB to revisit some of these names as pros again? Let’s hear what you think – which one of these one-and-done pros was your favorite? And which one would you like to see as a pro again?

For me, it was a no-brainer: Sasha.  I think the dude’s only shortcoming (no pun intended) is that he’s simply too small in stature to be a suitable partner for the bulk of the female celebs that get cast.  After seeing how great of a substitute partner he was to Nastia last season, and how he does whatever is asked of him without complaint – I’m convinced that we could see AMAZING things out of Sasha as a pro, if they would only give him another shot.  I hear the Olsen twins are short…and not really up to much these days 😉

Oddly enough, the other pro I found myself curious about was Anna Demidova – I remember that she actually was quite good with Michael Irvin, and seemed to be a teacher that was very good at communicating with and motivating her partner.  Found myself thinking of Gleb, too – he may not have really shined terribly brightly with Lisa, but once he moved over to DWTS Russia I think he really hit a nice stride.  Would he be able to hang with our pros, though? Who knows…

How did you vote?

DWTS Season 21 Watch Out: Piers Morgan Asked To Dance On Dancing With The Stars And Strictly Come Dancing

TV 3 is reporting that Piers Morgan was asked to dance on both the US and UK version of Dancing With The Stars. Too bad he’s not too keen on the idea. He can be kind of jerk sometimes, but, I really miss his CNN show. I use to love his celebrity interviews.

Piers Morgan claims he was offered thousands of pounds to appear on both ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ but is too embarrassed to dance on TV.

The British journalist claims he was offered the huge sum to strut his stuff on the popular US dance show and received similar offers from the UK equivalent, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, but would never consider the fees because he would be embarrassed by his moves.

He said: ”This year I have been offered a lot of money to do ‘Strictly’ – I think it was six figures, and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in America, which was a lot of money, about $300,000 (almost £200,000).

”But there is not enough money in Fort Knox to get me to dance in public. However, a bottle of Jack Daniel’s is a different matter.

”I had my 50th recently and Amanda Holden and me were doing the old bongo dance until 3am, which was very impressive.

”In that situation I’ll dance, but not on national TV.”

More at TV 3.
