‘Dancing with the Stars’ pulled a little trick on us with their casting announcement yesterday. There was no mention of Sean Lowe in the season 16 line-up, despite him being hotly tipped to participate.However, don’t worry; he’ll be putting on his dancing shoes.
Although ‘Bachelor’ star Sean Lowe didn’t appear on ‘Good Morning America’ for the big reveal of the new 2013 cast yesterday, Sean will indeed be taking part in the show.
Sean will be partnered by another tall blonde beauty (just like Sean!) – Peta Murgatroyd!
But of course there won’t be any love interest between the two of them. Sean is said to be head over heels love with the lady he picked as his fiancée on ‘The Bachelor’ finale. The two are still engaged and rumor has it that they are planning a summer wedding.
Will Sean and Peta be a winning combination? Possibly. They seem well matched physically and we can’t imagine Sean not being decent in the footwork department, can we? And you know what they say about men who can dance…
Peta also has a good track record on the show. She triumphed with Donald Driver in only her second season as a ‘Dancing with the Stars’ professional.
So why wasn’t Sean’s appearance on the show announced at the same time as everyone else’s?
It would seem sensible that ABC don’t want to steal the thunder of their current season of ‘The Bachelor’ in which Sean is still appearing. That’s what Reality Steve thinks is behind the secretive decision too. ‘The Bachelor’ finale airs on March 11, so an announcement on his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ appearance should be made soon after that, but it’s happening, folks. It’s really happening.
‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 16 premieresMarch 18, 2013at8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Are you excited to see Sean Lowe strut his stuff? Who else are you rooting for?
