I wanted to read the entire article on this, so went to Eonline.com to find it, but I can't find any news there about Apollo Ohno, even doing a site search on it. Could you maybe have seen it somewhere else, Chino? I'd love to read it... hungry for any news on the upcoming DWtS season, lol.Originally Posted by Chino;2220820;
Returned to add: Not sure where you saw that, Chino, but the only thing I could find about Apollo Ohno and DWtS when googling was his adamant assertion that he'd never do a DWtS show. Here's a brief excerpt from an interview in September 2006, from the US Olympic Team's official site: In bold is the interviewer's question, below it is Apollo's answers)
If you could be on any reality TV show, which would it be?
“I would do the ‘Amazing Race’ and pick Olympic Athletes from here. We would just tear it up. We would just tear those fools up.”
Who would you pick to be on your team?
“[Triathlete] Mark Fretta! I would pick Mark and then get a wrestler because wrestlers are crazy. They never say die. They’re just great athletes, even if physically they’re not stronger than you, they are going to find a way to beat you and to outplay you.”
Have you ever been approached to be on a reality TV show?
“Yeah, but I don’t know. Some reality shows are so cheesy.”
No ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in your future?
“Ah no! No way! Nothing like that. It would have to be authentic to me at least a little bit. But I think there’s an opportunity. I like watching ‘The Contender’ so I think we should do something like that.”
