“Dancing with the Stars” 2013, season 16 premieres March 18 and rumors about who will be on the show’s cast are already out there. According to the blog, PureDWTS, the show’s host — Tom Bergeron — is urging William Shatner to hit the dance floor, but he’s not jumping at the chance. He didn’t say “no,” either. Is he a possibility for the 2013 cast lineup?
TMZ just reported that “Small Wonder” star, Jerry Supiran, would like to be on the show. He might be a long shot bet, but he’s making it known he’d like to be part of the “Dancing” cast in season 16.
“I’m hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days … hopefully producers will give me a chance,” Jerry said.
Retired UFC fighter, Tito Ortiz, is another name being tossed around as being a contestant on season 16.
Dina Lohan has openly said she wants to be on “Dancing with the Stars” 2013 as Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s partner. She may not be one to count on for the 2013 season, however.
One celeb believed to likely make the cast lineup is Shannon Bex. according to PureDWTS. She appeared on NBC’s reality show, “Fame”
The pro said:
“The pros are the last people to find out if they are on the show. And we only find out one or two days before the public finds out. And the reason for that is because they first want to sign up all the celebrities. And when they have the lineup, only then will they tell us who we have and who is on the show.”
This makes sense since producers have to consider the celebrities’ dance experience, height, and personality when matching them with a particular pro on the show.
Who do you hope to see on season 16 of the show?
