Lindsay Lohan: While this gal could use the money and she surely could use the career boost, Lindsay won't be stepping on any dance floor any time soon. If you have been following her recent court case, Lindsay will begin her next trial on March 18th. Oh, guess what show premieres that day?
Lance Armstrong: I believe this is a name ABC pursued pretty heavily. His story is legendary in a not-so-good way, but DWTS might be a good place to start his comeback. However, I think Armstrong has said his peace to Oprah and he is now going to step away from the media for a time. Remember, he has a lot of personal relationships to heal before he ever steps back into the public arena.
Emily Maynard: ABC is very loyal to their reality stars and they have utilized Maynard for two rounds of the The Bachelor franchise. Don't doubt for a minute that they are at least thinking about using her for DWTS. She is a polarizing figure, but people would tune into watch her.
Katherine Webb: She's the hottest pop culture figure these days thanks to Brent Musburger and the BCS championship game. We will see her reporting for Inside Edition at Super Bowl LXVII and in the swimsuit issue for Sports Illustrated plus she's starring in ABC's new celebrity diving show called Splash. Webb has made no secret about the fact that she wants to hit DWTS next....stay tuned.
The Fierce Five: A few of the team members talked about wanting to star on the show after their appearance on the Season 15 finale. We chatted with Jordyn Wieber on Afterbuzz TV's DWTS after show and she mentioned how much she would love to do the show. Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, and McKayla Maroney also expressed interest in the show. If I was going to pick one from the gold medal-winning team, my money is on Maroney for a few reasons. One, she's focusing on an acting career. Two, she's local to the Southern California area.
Things we know for sure:
1. The show will be back for two seasons per year.
That's it! We need to know more. If you have any insider scoop, send your tips here.
