Looks like someone’s about to shake their bon bon at McKinley High. Out-and-proud Ricky Martin is adding some serious gay musical cred to his resume. The “Livin La Vida Loca” singer just signed on to guest star in an upcoming episode of the show’s third season. According to TVLine, Martin will appear as “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio.” Sounds like an acting stretch for Martin. NOT. He could easily earn the hottest title for the entire Midwest without even blinking an eye.
Isn’t it funny how there seems to be an overabundance of Spanish teachers at McKinley High. First off, lest we forget, but Will Schuester is technically the Spanish teacher at the school. Then, during one of her guest appearances on the show, Gwyneth Paltrow also taught español. And now it’s Ricky’s turn to teach the student body how to roll their Rs. Who knew the state of Ohio loved Spanish so much? Martin is set to sing at least two numbers in the January episode. Any predictions on what he’ll sing?
In other related “Glee” news, Chord Overstreet’s highly-anticipated return has an interesting twist. Instead of donning a football uniform, Overstreet will be sporting a different and much skimpier uniform. Chord’s character, Sam Evans, is joining the synchronized swim team. How amazing is this? Now we’ll get to drool over his sexy swimmer’s build on a weekly basis. Two snaps for the show’s writers for this new development. Just in case you forgot how sexy Chord looks without his shirt on, I’ve added a couple of shirtless pics of him at the end of the post.
Sam joins the team in hopes of winning Mercedes back. I have no idea how doing leg kicks in water is the key to winning your ex-girlfriend back, but what do I know? I’m not a straight blond boy. Synchronizing with Sam in the pool will be the addition of a trio of new characters. Team members Webber (“a nerdy-looking girl”), Charles (“a handsome African-American boy”) and Vinny (“a nerdy-looking boy”) along with their swim coach Roz Washington will all be introduced in January.
What are you more excited for in the New Year? Ricky Martin’s booty-shaking antics on the show or Chord Overstreet’s shirtless return? Post your thoughts below.
