Ever since Dancing with the Stars ended it’s 12th season last year, the rumors have been FLYING about who would join on for lucky season 13. When Patrick and I met up with Chelsie Hightower and Mark Ballas for an interview a while back, we asked Mark who he would like to see on the show. He mentioned Miley Cyrus or even Jennifer Aniston would be fun. Well, Mark’s wishing won’t be coming true but there are some pretty fun characters that have officially signed on to do the show, and I’ve got the names.
First off, we have Tiffani Thiessen of Saved by the Bell fame. I think that she is going to be a LOT of fun on this show. Not only is she gorgeous, but we know that she can move a little from a few episodes of the 90′s TV classic. What will make or break Tiffani is her partner. With Derek Hough returning this year, I think they would make a great pairing. I have high hopes for her and see her being a clear frontrunner from the opening night.
This is no brainer for me that she will do well in this competition. I think she’ll come and finish what Wendy Williams tried to start. Latifah has lots of on stage experience with performing as a rapper and in musicals like Chicago and Hairspray. But, will that translate into moves for the Samba and the Quickstep? I think that she’ll work hard and do really well but I don’t see her being finale material unfortunately.
Rob has been confirmed for a while now. While I think that Rob will probably be one of the better looking male contestants on the show, I’m unsure of how great his dance ability will be. I watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians every Sunday and he has the laziest attitude. If that carries over to the show and his partner can’t whip him into shape, I think he’ll be done ever early than his sister Kim Kardashian was.
This addition to season thirteen is awesome and hilarious for me. It’s awesome because she’ll bring such a fun dynamic to the show. It’s hilarious because she is so short and will probably struggle with a lot of the terminology and moves. However, we know Snooki used to be a cheerleader and can do cartwheels and back handsprings as we’ve seen on Jersey Shore. If her partner can work hard on her to refine her skills, she may do well.
What do you think of the announced cast members? Are you looking forward to this season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s hard to believe, but we’ll be recapping the show all over again starting September. Get ready!
