Lance Bass. Kellie Pickler. Lou Ferrigno. Warren Sapp. These are just a few of the names being rumored as the new contestants on Season 7 of Dancing with the Stars, which has a two-night premiere starting tomorrow on ABC. Some of these are hardly surprising – with the recent HULK movie, Lou Ferrigno seems a natural choice. Some rumors just seem too good to be true: Lance Bass may be performing with a male partner, for example.
One rumor I do not believe is the idea that Paula Abdul might be one of the contestants – as a judge for a competing network show, it would just be too much a conflict of interest. Either way, it will certainly be a high-energy show as they try and steal some of the audience, thunder, and emmy-nominations from So You Think You Can Dance.
I’ve got my couch ready. Do you?
