So I started putting together part 2 of my dream cast list (because once I started the first one, I got way too many ideas) before checking your second one and I have Adam Levine and Meryl Streep on there too :D I think we should just send our lists to ABC and tell them we have their next 3-4 seasons planned out already :)
WOO! Great minds think alike! And yes, we have 2 years of DWTS celebs planned out for them. All they have to do is not screw it up/storyboard the crap outta each season…
Oprah and Derek Hough
McKayla Maroney and Sasha Farber
Shannon Bex and Mark Ballas
Meryl Streep and Tristan MacManus
Serena Williams and Gleb Savchenko
Jennifer Lopez and Henry Byalikov
Cullen Jones and Sharna Burgess
Michael Jordan and Kym Johnson
Joseph Gordon Levitt and Emma Slater
Austin Mahone and Chelsie Hightower
Adam Levine and Karina Smirnoff
Michael Ealy and Cheryl Burke
I think I like how this one came together than the other but I really like both seasons. Thoughts?
Yessss make another list and I'll make my own (actually one of your pairings and one of your contestants are also on my list)
Who would that pairing be? And I think I’ll get on that as soon as I get home from school today. Oh and you should let me see your list when you are done. I’m interested in seeing who your choices are!
I agree. Although Meryl and Charlie have dance experience that must applied to ice that is not the same as ballroom experience. Meryl and Charlie for me are kinda like some the stars who have had dance experience in the past in other areas of dance but not ballroom. They still had to adjust. Danica will have no adjusting to do at all. Really unfair and boring in my opinion. I was excited about her until I learned this. Guess I'll be rooting for Candace!
Exactly. They’re kind of like Kristi Y and Evan L. Of course they’re more dance oriented so I would put them in a category with people like Mya, Mel B, Sabrina Bryan, etc. But Danica, well that’s another monster. I mean I’m a fan of good dancing so I don’t mind that she has dance training (even though having ballroom training is a little much in a show where you’re supposed to learn how to ballroom dance). What bothers me most is the double standard that a butt load of the fans of this show have.
Most of the time when I do this, I always look at the type of celebs that DWTS would choose to put on their show. But since one of you asked for me to do one regardless of how realistic it would be (pros and celebs alike), I’m gonna do it! So here we go, my all time dream cast would go as follows:
Beyonce and Derek Hough
Ellen DeGeneres and Tristan MacManus
Kelly Rowland and Henry Byalikov
Raven Symone and Mark Ballas (the good Mark)
Tyra Banks and Gleb Savchenko
Brenda Song and Sasha Farber
Justin Timberlake and Karina Smirnoff
Carlos Pena Vega and Chelsie Hightower
Michael Phelps and Kym Johnson
David Henrie and Emma Slater
Will Smith and Sharna Burgess
Damon Wayans Jr. and Cheryl Burke
So there it is. I have so many that I kind of want to do another one. Maybe tomorrow if enough people are interested. But yeah this is my ultimate dream season. And I doubt any of these people (except maybe 1 or 2) would actually do it. But a guy can dream right?
Did you know that Danica has danced ballroom for a long time? That seems hugely unfair. I know a lot have had dance experience in the past but dancing ballroom for a while is completely different.
Yeah I just figured that out earlier today. Her mom owns a studio or something right? So I’m sure she started there. People are so fixated on Meryl and Charlie and their ice dancing background that they are going to overlook that Danica probably has the most ballroom training of any celeb there. Yeah Meryl and Charlie have had some training, but they’re on ice utilizing their skills. They’re gonna have to adjust. Going from a ballroom to another ballroom is no challenge at all.
Why do people always complain about Derek getting the "ringers" when Val's three most recent partners (Zendaya, Elizabeth, and now Danica) were all trained dancers? I don't get it.
I don’t get it either. No one is complaining about that and yet every last one of his partners gets branded a ringer whether they deserve it or not. I’m sure this season will be the same. If Amy does well, people will complain about Derek always getting ringers while half of Val’s partners have been actual ringers. Let’s not forget about Maks coming back after being gone for a year and speaking ill of the show and getting Meryl. And let’s not forget about how blessed Mark has been by never getting a partner that looks bad on paper. It really makes no sense how much hate Derek gets when Val, Maks and Mark have had many more ringers and partners that should have done well than Derek has had.
(Kinda off-topic:) If you could put together your dream cast for a season of DWTS, regardless of how realistic, who would you pick (pros+celebs)?
Ohhh. That’s a good one. I’ll create a post for that later on tonight as I’ve never done one of those with whoever I wanted, realistic or not. So yeah, thanks for that question! And be on the lookout for it today.
Am I the only one who felt that Cody seemed exceptionally un-enthusiastic (especially compared to some of the others) from the time he was introduced on GMA until the end of the show?
No, a lot of people felt that way. But he seems like a shy reserved person and it was early in the morning. Plus he said he only got 2 hours of sleep so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt as far as that goes.
