I’m not much into reality shows – but there are a few that I do enjoy! I really like Top Chef on Bravo – I never miss it and watch the reruns when I catch them while flipping channels. I also like Bravo’s Shear Genius and Project Runway – neither are currently showing new episodes, but last season I watched them when I happened to think about it. But I LOVE Dancing With The Stars!!!! I set the recorder in case I dose off or get busy and miss it – I dread the end of the season and can’t wait for the new season to start!!!
So – I was very excited today to hear the announcement of this year’s participants!!!
My personal favorite on the list is CAMERON MATHISON – he plays Ryan Laverly on daytime’s All My Children (the only soap I watch – I tape it every day!) – his partner is EDYTA SLIWINSKA. She’s good, but not one of my favorites of the regulars. I haven’t seen him dance, yet, but he’s very athletic and I’m taking early bets that he’ll make it all the way!!!!
Marie Osmond, Wayne Newton, and Jane Seymour will probably do OK and be fan favorites for a few episodes, but I’m guessing they won’t last too long. The rest are anybody’s guess — I don’t know much about some of them. Scary Spice is an entertainer, so she may last a while (but, then again, she did just have a baby a few months ago — maybe that will slow her down some). The Abercrombie and Finch male model will probably make a good showing and be in the last few. We’ll see — I’ll have more of an opinion after the first couple of shows and I see how they do.
Watch for my weekly commentary on the progress of the show!!! Warning, though – I get pretty excited and passionate about the contestants and how I feel about who gets booted off (or who doesn’t get booted off, but should!!!).
Here’s to a great season of Rumbas, Sambas, Waltzes, Paso Dobles, Quicksteps, Cha-Chas, Jives, Foxtrots, and Tangos!!!! WOO HOO!!!! I’m so looking forward to Monday September 24th!!!
