The eleven contestants to make the cast of Dancing With The Stars 2011 has finally been revealed tonight, Feb 28th, 2011, during The Bachelor. I feel the need to give my opinion about some of the cast mates and cant wait to hear what you guys feel about them!!
Lil’ Romeo (Rapper)– My little sister has the biggest crush on the rapper Lil’Romeo so I felt the need to list him first in honor of her. It’s the only reason she is going to be watching the show. Because a lot of the voting audience is young and because he is very likeable, I think he would make it far. I don’t expect him to win and I’m sure as a performer he has some dance talent but not in ballroom dancing so it would be interesting to see how he performs. I actually think he can have a very good posture for dancing in the style so who knows, he might surprise me. I’m saying he would at least make it half way.
Kirsti Alley (Actress)– I can’t see Kirsti dancing at all. I can see her stepping all over her own toes and she would definitely make for an interesting contestant. I think she might take the comedic way out and try to make light of her mistakes. The judges may not take her seriously but I expect that she would really want to win and want to prove everyone wrong so who knows how far this attitude could take her.
Kendra Wilkinson (Playboy Bunny)– I love Kendra and so far my vote is with her. She is fun and seems very cool. She is also super girly but also athletic and flexible. She has a lot of passion and I see her being successful at whatever it is she attempts to do.
Wendy Williams (Talk Show Host)– I love Wendy, I really do. But a dancer?? I don’t know about this one. Wendy is really tall and of a masculine build so I’m curious to see if she would actually be able to lead the man lead. She is very independent and strong and has an overwhelming personality. She is a great person, very funny but I don’t know how far she will get. She might be kept around just because she would make the show entertaining so I’m gonna say she will make it to the 4th round.
Chelsea Kane (Disney Kid)- I actually don’t know who she is. Shows how long it’s been since I’ve watched Disney right? But again, she has the younger crowd on her side and who better to have support you? Still, she didn’t seem that personable and for people who don’t already know her, I doubt we’d be rushing to vote her in. Again, I could be wrong and there’s no way I could see her personality from the short little segment so maybe she will surprise me. She might end up being really sweet and really fun to watch. And of course, a really great dancer. Most Disney stars have dancing abilities, with all the acting/singing/dancing shows they produce so maybe she is already skilled in the area.
Petra Nemcova (Model)-Someone else I do not know and I don’t even remember seeing her on the show. I was sure there were only ten people in fact. She does not look like a dancer to me, if there is such a thing as a ‘look’ for dancers. She also seems shy but I don’t know how shy you can be if you pose for sports illustrated in barely there bikinis. So, I’m going to wait and see what she has to offer. Hopefully I would be able to have an opinion about her after her first performance.
Chris Jericho (Wrestler/Rocker)– I always wonder how people who are really athletic are going to fair out. But wrestling is kind of different so he has a chance. He doesn’t seem really stiff and he came out really excited, more excited than anyone else.
Sugar Ray Leonard (Retired boxer)– He is kind of cool and has a lot of fans, got rhythm and a fun personality so he likely to do well. I don’t see him as a ballroom dancer, he might break out in some break dance or something, who knows. But he seems to me like someone who could learn very quickly and do very well. I won’t guess how long he would last but he is definitely lasting longer than Hines and Petra.
Hines Ward (Pitsburgh Steeler Football Player)– Ward the dancing Football Player. I guess it has a decent enough ring to it. I really don’t have an opinion about him. The crowd did not respond well to him at all!! No one seemed to know who he was. He got less applause than any other contestant so that alone speaks for itself. I don’t think he is going to make it far. He might be the first to get voted off.
Ralph Macchio (Actor)– I honestly think that once you develop some kind of rhythm, it won’t go away. Doing Karate Kid gives him just a tiny bit of an advantage, very tiny. He doesn’t seem that great honestly, so he has to depend on his talent to get him anywhere.
Mike Catherwood (Radio DJ)– This is another person that I do not know. I don’t remember him which is a very bad start. Radio to dancing? Uhh maybe not. We shall see about this one. I would be extremely surprised if he makes it. When you are on radio, people don’t see too much of you so I’m not sure how big his fan base is but I’m not expecting anything major.
Overall, I think it’s a great cast. It don’t have the characters that are bound to fail like from previous seasons. You know, the characters they put on as a joke just to get people to watch. All of these people could actually be able to do a little something, regardless of how little that something is. I wish them all the best of luck and I cant wait for the season to start to see if I was right about anyone!!
Now it’s your turn! What are you predictions?? Please share! :)
