Dear Casting Director of Dancing with the Stars,
I’d like to start off by saying that I love your show. I’m not even a big follower of celebrities anymore, but I always want to see who is going to be dancing, which then always leads me to needing to tune in to find out who is continuing. It’s very cyclical, in just the way that you would like it to be.
There’s something I’ve noticed about my excitement though. I’m often more interested in the professional dancers than I am in the B or C list celebrities who appear on the show. Hell, I’m more interested in Kym and Maks than I am in most of the full on celebrities who grace the ballroom floor!
And that is actually what brings me here to write to you now.
What happens when someone like Maksim Chmerkovskiy is the star? (This is not to say that Hope Solo isn’t one, I promise I’m part of your audience who definitely knows who she is and just how well she’ll be able to handle Maks this season.)
If he is the star, and he’s dancing with a star, it all just seems like a little much for me. There isn’t anyone who is dancing with the stars, they’re just all stars.
Don’t worry, I have a solution!
Bring in two civilians each season, one lead and one follow to dance with the pros who have their own star status.
I know that this asking a bit more of you, what with the widening of the casting pool and all, so I have an idea to make that easier as well.
I have just enough dance experience to be confident that I can get Maks that mirrorball, but not enough that I would have any more advantage than Joey Fatone or Drew Lachey did.
Heck, if you really want me to, I’m sure I could find a lead to dance with Cheryl or Kym without even breaking a sweat. There’s the pool of my dance friends, but then there’s also the factor of those girls being super hot. Even the least likely guy to dance would jump at the chance to get to touch those girls on a regular basis.
I think I’m getting off topic. To recap, Maks is now a star, please pay for me to travel and meet him and dance with him. There is information on how to contact me in the contact tab at the top of this page.
Let’s get Maks a mirrorball!
