I'm still kinda hoping for an All Stars. Folks who made it to the top 4 or 5 without winning the title.
I'd love to see Gilles, Joey Fatone, Sabrina, Brandy, etc.
Thanks, Kara. I like your list too, though I don't really know any of the soap stars you mentioned. The only ones I ever watched were Days and Passions. (speaking of Passions, Lindsey and Justin Hartley would be fabulous too, and that's a husband/wife pairing..too bad they aren't ABC stars!) And I read an article with Probst where he said he and him mom love to watch DWTS but he would never do it b/c he's hella uncoordinated. Sucks, because I would love to see him!Originally Posted by karalott;4113745;
I really, really like Peta too. She's tall and gorgeous a la Kym and Edyta, I believe she's a bit older than the Mark/Derek/Julianne/Lacey/Chelsie crowd, or at least she projects herself to be, which I like. The more mature (acting) our pros, the better (though I do love me some Chelsie). Plus she and Damien are both so danged PRETTY. I really want both of them back. My dream pro list would be:
Karina (for some reason she grew on me this year)
I don't think Alec or Edyta will be back, sadly. I know Edyta said the articles twisted her words but I still don't think they and the show parted ways nicely.

I'm an Auburn Tiger. Love me some Bo, it would be so much fun to see him on DWTS!!!!Originally Posted by bevorules;4113776;
I would probably say the truth is in the middle somewhere. Edyta's departure and having nothing to do with the show, not even showing up in the audience when she's still friends with everyone involved, could all be a coincidence. Who knows. I miss her, and Alec My pro list would be nearly identical to yours, except I'd probably add Dmitry for the 6th guy. I don't really care, you have all my must haves, but I've grown to miss Dmitry slightly. I don't really care to see Karina back, but I hope if they do add Peta and Lacey is included again, that Anna, Kym, and Chelsie don't get the ax. One of them anyway. I honestly wouldn't mind a break from Cheryl, though she grew on me this season again. I don't know about Alec, but Edyta seems content in pursuing her school work, and I know she's mentioned wanting to have kids in the near future.Originally Posted by RyMac;4113823;
There's a lot of soap stars I'd love to see, but sadly they're all on different networks. I only know Kim Zimmer and Laura Wright from Guiding Light originally. Passions used to be one of my favorites.
Actually, Lindsay Hartley has gone over to All My Children, though she hasn't debuted yet, so she is in fact an ABC star now! I would love to her to do DWTS! I adore her!
I think the guy who played Van on Reba would be fun, or the lady who played Barbara Jean, though I think she hosts the Singing Bee on CMT.
Wayne Brady would also be great, though I'm sure he is busy with Let's Make a Deal!
As far as pros go, my favorite two are Louis and Cheryl, so I'd like to see them both back! They just seem like great teachers because no matter what duds they had, they brought out the best in them...or at least to me they did! Chelsie and Dmitry are also two of my favorites, so I hope they are back as well! Edyta has always been my least favorite pro, so I didn't really miss her this season, though I do think it's wrong that she got the shaft for so long!

I would NOT like to see anymore people on that do not really want to be there such as Kim Kardashian, Bristol, Master P, even Michael Bolton. It's no fun watching people who look like they would rather be anyplace but there. I think Kim Kardashian was one of the worst attitude people ever on the show and for that reason I would not like to see anymore kardashian's on.
The reason the stars are usually a little older is that it's hard to find a has been young person I suppose unless it was a child star.
How about NO ONE who is even peripherally involved in politics. Add to that no one who is "famous" for sleeping with someone who is actually famous and/or making a sex tape, posing in Playboy AND anyone who is famous just because their parents are famous.
I'd love it if they'd stick with actors, singers and athletes, with a few reality people (but not the nasty ones) thrown in. I haven't seen any names in this thread that get me very excited and some probably would never happen. The show always finds a few people every season that the audience isn't really familiar with and they often become favorites, like Kyle and Kelly O.
I'm better at knowing who I DON'T want on the show. The producers often find people I like, but would never have thought of for this show and I generally enjoy those people the most.
I'm really tired of polarizing figures. This forum needs less politics and discord and more snark and fun!
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
I have to think (and maybe it's all hope over anything) that even though Bristol gave them the highest ratings they've seen in years and that she was all the talk, they realize that their credibility on just about everything was thrown into the ring, and not everyone's going to buy their explanations. What are they going to say, yes they're e-mail system is hackable? Yes, they do give curves based on whether you're controversial or not with the judges scores? I don't think anyone involved expected this type of reaction from Bristol, and I don't think her or her family helped with the way they lashed out. I realize it's easy to attack when you're being attacked, but either way, it didn't help. She may have been the talk of the season, because otherwise it was an even more boring, dismal season, but was it really worth it? Since I love the show and hate that it's become about fighting with the pros, judges, and showmances, I say no. But what do I know.Originally Posted by Critical;4113969;
Anyway, I realized that 95% of people I want to see have either come and gone, likely wouldn't do, or wouldn't be asked in the first place. I don't have a problem with reality show personalities, I would just prefer not to be someone that was castoff from a reality show after one try because they became some sob story or were highly hated by America. People that have done something, even if it's little, but gained fame by doing The Hills, Kardashians, etc...I don't really have a problem with. It just depends who they get I do hope they steer away from casting anyone that will cause any sort of drama and controversy. And quite honestly hope they themselves steer away from all the drama and controversy in the editing.
