I enjoy watching Dancing With the Stars. In previous seasons, there's usually been someone that I've rooted for in the competition. I caught myself rooting for Jason Taylor (i.e. a fellow University of Akron Alumnus, former Miami Dolphin, and current New York Jet) because he's ridiculously handsome and we went to college together. Most recently I caught myself cheering for Pamela Anderson because she's "likable" and seems genuine. Actually, right now I'm watching "Kate Plus 8" and I'm remembering the terrible performances of Kate Gosselin. **** Incidentally, can someone PLEASE give me $5 every time Kate says the word paparazzi?!?!! Alas, I digress.
I just noticed the current line-up/cast for the upcoming DWTS season and let's just say I'm not impressed with the list of people I saw. Granted, the season hasn't started yet. However, there is no POSITIVE visceral reaction that I feel (i.e. that would really compel me to watch the show) when any of the following names are mentioned: Brandy, Jennifer Grey, Margaret Cho, Audrina Patridge, Florence Henderson, Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, David Hasselhoff, Kurt Warner, Kyle Massey, and Rick Fox.
OK - I may have spoken too soon. Former Los Angeles Laker, Rick Fox, is attractive and I've seen him most recently in Las Vegas during NBA Summer League. However, I don't know how compelling he'll be on the dance floor.
This is going to be a rough season with such a lame cast... I predict terrible ratings.
For those of you that stuck with this post, here is the footage of Pamela Anderson dancing the Rumba. It's hot... If you haven't seen it ~ you're welcome.
