PureDWTS Season 28 Rumors and Watchout: DWTS Instagram Posts…a Basketball Player??

Well, it’s been a bit since we had a basketball player hasn’t it? I’m too lazy to go look. 🙂 So far, the guesses I’ve seen include Kobe, Magic, and a few others I’ve never heard of. Oh and one funny guy who said “Iconic ball skills…must be a porn star” which I have to admit made me chuckle. Anyway, I know nothing about BBall, so ya’ll have any ideas?? I’m thinking it could be Kobe, since he’s been rumored MANY times in the past. Although this guy looks to be on the smaller side. Who knows?

ETA: And a couple sleuths on twitter, including @DWTSGossip may have this one figured out.

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 28 Rumors and Watchout: DWTS Instagram Posts Hannah Brown??

The freckle police say it’s Hannah and their evidence is compelling. The hair looks different to me, but who knows what kind of filters they’re using. Thoughts??

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Instagram Is Getting Cryptic…

So here we have the latest IG post from the @DancingABC account…and there’s a lot to unpack…

Decode the clues! 🔎 You might be a cultural genius if you can guess who this star is. #DWTS

A post shared by Dancing with the Stars (@dancingabc) on

Let’s have a look at each element…

Florida A&M Rattlesnakes pennant: there’s over 60 alums that have gone on to the NFL, so good luck figuring out which one…if that’s even what this is meant to hint at. Turns out Karamo Brown went there, too…

“It’s all fun and games until you enter the real world”: my guess is that this individual has undertaken a different career path after doing one thing earlier in life…maybe a former NFL player that is now in a different line of work? Ok, just had a memory: someone on Real World many, many years ago yelling “Dammit Karamo, now you’re pissing me off!” Totally spaced that he was on Real World: Philadelphia

29.7604 N 95.3698 W: plug this into Google Maps, and it looks like it’s Houston City Hall. Karamo’s from Houston.

Web page searching mens jackets…?: Yeah. IDK. Maybe this person has a clothing line? Someone on Twitter saying it’s Karamo from Queer Eye

Notes with “Sunday” and “YEAH”: Does this person maybe have a show on Sundays…? Is “YEAH” a catchphrase?

Letter “A” and clock at “10:15”: Anyone notice any significance?

Typewriter and glasses: Does this person wear glasses? Are they a writer?

Discuss…

ABC Entertainment President, Karey Burke, Teases On The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars

Well, we aren’t really learning anything new from other teasers recently, but, exec from ABC, Karey Burke, talked a little on the changes coming to the new season of Dancing With The Stars which sound good. From TV Line….

Speaking with TVLine last week at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour, Burke offered new insight into the retooled DWTS, which returns Monday, Sept. 16 at 8/7c. For starters, the exec characterized the alterations as “format tweaks” vs. format changes,” adding, “It’s about [shifting] the focus of the show to really focus on it being a celebration of dance, and also focusing on the celebrities.”

By “leaning into its strengths,” Burke believes DWTS will once again cement its position as “the most entertaining dance show on television.”

Meanwhile, Burke remained mum on Season 28’s celeb cast, but promised the lineup is “really good.”

Tom Felton of “Harry Potter” Fame Talks Dancing with the Stars

Draco Malfoy and Neville Longbottom go dancing?? I would be SO THERE FOR THAT. 🙂  If the producers are trying to go bigger, these two might be the way to go…not as big as Harry, Ron or Hermione, but dang it would be an improvement. Tom Felton (Draco) and Matthew Lewis (Neville) are both quite successful post-Potter and I don’t know that the show would ever REALLY be able to get them, but apparently Tom had something to say about it during a recent fan convention.

Please note, those of you who take nuggets and run with them – this is neither a “rumor” nor (probably) a serious campaign by either guy. It was probably a JOKE. Neither one probably has to ever work again, just based off Potter – but why not do it for fun guys?? Pweease?? Let’s campaign! For those non-Potterheads, you can read up on Matthew Lewis (grew up gorgeous) and Tom Felton (good musician!) at the links.

“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!”

Tyler Cameron – The Next Bachelor…or DWTS Contestant???

He’s hot, he’s extremely popular right now, and according to The Inquisitor, has DWTS on his wish list. I’m for it. 🙂 For those not in the know, Tyler was Bachelorette Hannah’s second choice on this latest (very dramatic and somewhat disturbing) edition of The Bachelorette. Now, those of you who know me, know I hate-watch the Bachelor/ette franchise for all it’s cringe-worthy glory. But this last season I not only liked the Bachelorette quite a bit (as did all of America, apparently), but I liked quite a few of her guys. Particularly Tyler. Anyway, these two – Hannah and Tyler – are easily two of the most popular peeps to be on that franchise in a while. And people buy into this shows thing. So…maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t. But he’s not ruling it out. See an excerpt below…click the link to read the whole article. He’s also not ruling out being the next Bachelor, so that could get in the way.

“As a kid, I always said I wanted to go on Dancing with the Stars and that football was going to be the way I got onto Dancing with the Stars. My football career didn’t work out, but maybe this could help me get on Dancing with Stars one day.”

It would be surprising if Tyler doesn’t end up as The Bachelor lead or as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars this fall. The hunky former football, aka the “Respectful King,” won the hearts of millions of fans of ABC’s rose-filled reality show so he would come with an instant fan base. If he is cast on the celebrity ballroom competition, Tyler would follow in the footsteps of past Bachelor Nation alums Jake Pavelka, Chris Soules, Seal Lowe, Nick Viall, “Grocery Store” Joe Amabile, and more who went on to compete for the DWTS mirrorball trophy.

We’re going to ignore that “as a kid” part and completely forget that when I started blogging for this show, he was 16. :::sigh:::

Note: This is HIS wishlist, not necessarily DWTS’s. This is not a “rumor”. Learn the difference. 🙂

ETA: OH…I think it just became an actual RUMOR! Adam is a producer on DWTS. Rumor…or red herring??
