“Impressive Names” Coming To Dancing With The Stars Season 28?

In May, we got a little teaser from Deadline on the format changes coming to Dancing With The Stars Season 28. They also talked on the possibility of bigger stars doing the show. Now there is another teaser from the same source. Let’s just say they are hoping these tweaks and the new casting will help the show stick around after this season….

“The producers were just in last week talking about the casting and the creative evolution. It’s all very exciting. It won’t be major format changes, just tweaking and tinkering… the show’s been on so long and it’s been so successful elsewhere, I think they’ve done quite an impressive job of looking at what works,” she said.

Burke added that the hope is the format tweaks will lead to more seasons of the show.

“I’m quite excited about the casting they’ve put together. It’s not done, but the names that I have heard [are impressive]. I think it’s going to be a big season,” she said.

Chris Harrison From Bachelor in Paradise Talks On Which Alums Would Be Successful On DWTS

ET caught up with Chris Harrison who is the host of Bachelor in Paradise. He talked of which alums from the show would be successful on Dancing With the Stars. Read on and then see this link for more. Hannah Brown, Colton Underwood, and Tyler Cameron are all mentioned…

While Harrison had high hopes for recent Bachelorette Hannah Brown, he wasn’t so optimistic about Underwood’s chances.

“If Hannah’s on, she’d be great. Colton I don’t think would be great,” Harrison told ET.

Despite thinking that Underwood is “awesome,” Harrison said the former NFL player would have to “take his shirt off on day one and use his unbelievable charm and charisma and personality” to compete on DWTS.

“I love Colton. He’s like my little brother. He’s not a good dancer,” Harrison said of Underwood, who chose Cassie Randolph at the end of his season of The Bachelor. “… He has no rhythm at all. That doesn’t come to you.”

Though he’s uncertain about Underwood’s dancing abilities, Harrison confirmed that the 27-year-old reality star would make for “great TV.”

“He’ll go far ’cause, here’s the thing with Colton, he is a ridiculous athlete, obviously, he’s a world-class athlete, and he grinds and he will try,” Harrison said. “He will put in the effort, but I’m talking he’s at zero, he might get a two if he crushes it. Whereas Hannah is a performer. I think she can dance. She’ll be at a four [and] can get up to an eight.”

If there happened to be a showdown between Brown and Underwood, Harrison said he’d put his money on Brown to walk away with the Mirrorball Trophy.

While he’s firmly on Team Brown in a potential DWTS faceoff, there’s another Bachelorette alum that Harrison would like to see in the ballroom — her runner-up, Tyler Cameron.

“Why isn’t it Tyler [on Dancing With the Stars]?” he said. “Tyler dances. He had the whole Footloose thing!”

More DWTS Season 28 Watch Outs (Bigger Celebs?), Secret Format Changes, And More

Will there be bigger celebrities for Dancing With The Stars Season 28? According to Deadline, this is a huge possibility. More below including names Jennifer Love Hewitt and Katelyn Ohasi being thrown out there. Also, their could be some format changes….

“We have been pitched some really fun format changes for Dancing with the Stars by the executive producers but right now they are top secret. [Reality chief] Rob Mills and I had a meeting with them a couple of months ago and got very excited about some of the new ideas that they were talking about to freshen up the format. It’s still the show that audience knows and loves but they’ve got some good ideas in terms of how to surprise people in new ways,” she said.

Burke, speaking at the Disney press upfronts event, added that it was “going after bigger stars than we have in a long time” as the series returns on Monday nights between 8pm and 10pm. This comes after radio host Bobby Bones won the last season, beating the likes of Harry Potter alum Evanna Lynch, Fuller House‘s Juan Pablo Di Pace and former Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider to the top prize.

It will unlikely have trouble finding top names; I Know What You Did Last Summer star Jennifer Love Hewitt recently revealed that she would be interested in appearing and gymnast and viral sensation Katelyn Ohasi said she had been in talks to join.

The ABC chief also said that resting the show, which is based on BBC format Strictly Come Dancing, should have a positive impact. “Resting the show does help us focus on talent and we will go after people that we think will be the strongest. That has been a gift and the producers are chomping at the bit to bring it back next fall,” she added.

More at Deadline. Personally, I never cared about “big names. I just want good dancing and great and creative choreography.

DWTS Season 28 Watch Out: Robert Irwin Wants To Dance!!

How about Robert Irwin for Dancing With The Stars Season 28? ET is reporting he’d like to dance. I say bring him on!!! I would love this!!! Thanks to Vin for bringing this news to our attention!

While Robert Irwin, son of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, is already following in his father’s footsteps as a nature conservationist, it sounds like he might also be interested in following his sister, Bindi, to the Dancing With the Stars stage.

“I’m not as graceful as Bindi, let’s just say that. I’m not very graceful,” Robert told ET’s Lauren Zima at this year’s Steve Irwin Gala at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “[But] I’d give it a go.

Bindi took home the coveted Mirrorball trophy in November 2015 after a season full of jaw-dropping dances alongside her partner, Derek Hough.

Robert was only 11 at the time, but now that the young TV personality and animal expert has gotten a bit older, there are a lot of fans who’d love to see him vie for the trophy himself.

How about Natasha Bure For Dancing with the Stars Season 28? I think this would be a cool idea especially if she were to be paired with Mark Ballas…

Former NFL Quarterback Johnny Manziel “Too Controversial” To Do Dancing With The Stars

If true, I guess former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel was dropped from doing Dancing With The Stars because he is “too controversial” according to Fox News. Geez, what about Tonya Harding? Isn’t she just as controversial? I think I’d take him verses Tonya any day.

Manziel was reportedly in talks to join the show for a few weeks but producers chose to pass on the former Cleveland Browns quarterback, The Blast reported. Producers reportedly deemed the embattled quarterback “too controversial” and decided to move forward with someone else.

Manziel had a tumultuous NFL career after not living up to expectations and being spotted partying with celebrities. He reportedly went to rehab in 2015 and was pulled over by police while arguing with his girlfriend.

He is currently attempting to make a comeback in the NFL and is playing in the Spring League.
