Alright, I admit I am a woman of many guilty pleasures, and last year I added Dancing with the Stars to that list. The season 11 cast has been announced and I must say, I’m pretty excited. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Audrina Patridge (reality stars, check), David Hasselhoff (quitting his position as judge on one talent show to compete in another, bold move from the Hoff), Brandy (washed up pop star of the 90s, check), Michael Bolton (since you’ve cut those blond, flowing locks, you’re dead to me) Margaret Cho (every season needs a sass pot), Florence Henderson (old person who will be a terrible dancer but who you’ll vote for anyway cause you just feel bad, check), Kurt Warner (token macho football player who will try to find his gentler side, check), Kyle Massey and Rick Fox (who are these people and why should I care?), Jennifer Grey (nobody puts Baby in the corner…come on, I had to) and Bristol Palin.
Bristol Palin? Not to nitpick here, but isn’t the show called Dancing with the Stars? I realize the definition of the word star has been expanded generously to include some contestants, but this one maybe takes the cake. I guess getting pregnant at age 17, then preaching abstinence to American teens and having a mother who happens to be a bit cuckoo qualifies as star power these days. Cannot wait to hear Sarah’s commentary on her daughter’s performance. I’m hoping she works Maverick and Joe Sixpack in there somehow.
Although it’s very early on, and we don’t even know who will be partnering with who, I will boldly make my prediction for the top 3 this season:
David Hasselhoff. If you have any doubts this man can dance, please see the following:
“The Situation”. This man can beat the beat up with his eyes closed. AND he is already so orange he will not need any additional spray tan action. If nothing else, he will stick around for entertainment value. I can’t wait til he calls his dance partner a butterface and drama ensues.
Jennifer Grey. I mean obvi. She learned from Swayze. All she needs to do is master that lift and she is in. Although it will be sad to see Baby dancing with anyone other than Johnny, what is more sad is how Jennifer’s nose job ruined her career. Bad move Baby. Your time for redemption is here.
