Hot off the heels that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Audrina Patridge were putting on their dancing shoes to compete in the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars“, another flood of rumors with potential celebrity hoofers has surfaced. Though the official cast list won’t be revealed until next week’s episode of “The Bachelor Pad“, it hasn’t stopped the blogsphere from leaking stars currently in negotiations with DWTS.
First on the list is follically-challenged adult contemporary crooner Michael Bolton. The 57-year-old Grammy Award winner is rumored to be talking with producers about becoming a contestant for Season 11. While his star wattage has dimmed in the past few years, appearing on the show would be a great career move. It would allow him to hock a few more of his CDs and maybe go on a old-timers tour.
Next on the rumor list is original “Baywatch” stud, David Hasslehoff. Apparently “The Hoff” was asked to appear on Season 10, but turned down the offer because he didn’t want to compete against his friend and former co-star, Pamela Anderson.
I think both celebrities are great choices for the show. Both Bolton and Hasslehoff bring with them an older demographic but a big one at that. Personally, I don’t think the producers would cast two older males in the same season. No matter who they cast, I think DWTS producers will be hard-pressed to top last season’s motley crue of celebrities.
If the rumors stand true, the current crop includes: Brandy; Audrina Patridge; David Hasslehoff; Michael Bolton; Kurt Warner; Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. Do you think the speculated cast can compete with previous seasons? Weigh in below.
