“Skating with the Stars” contestants – what cast can you imagine worth watching on ABC’s new reality TV show competition? As the “DWTS” spin-off nears November 22nd, the cast of “Skating with the Stars” will be announced on November 2 during “Dancing’s” elimination episode.
While we wait for the much awaited cast list, which contestants would you like to see? In this case we have to think very physical and well-balanced, not just a pretty or handsome face. When we watch “Dancing with the Stars” contestants hit the ballroom floor as though they’ve had years of training. Well, in some cases a few have! How many celebrities in Hollywood have actually had training in ice skating? This show will be a lot easier for producers to get inexperienced ice skaters, let’s face it.
Contestants on “Skating with the Stars” will need to combine grace, strength, and ability on the ice rink. Let’s examine who some of the best stars would be for athletic ability on thin ice!
It’s not know the exact number of contestants who will appear on “Skating,” but since the show is only 6 weeks in length, let’s examine why 6 of these stars would be fun to watch as part of the cast.
Killy Ripa – Kelly is fit and has obvious athletic ability. It’s easy to imagine her being a contestant on “Skating with the Stars” because of her amazing body and flamboyant personality. All she needs added is skates!
Alex O’Loughlin – Alex is the hottest star this season on “Hawaii Five-O” and watching him take to the ice rink would make millions of women drool. He takes part in a variety of sports that involve balance such kung-fu and other martial arts techniques. Of course, skateboarding and modern dance adds to his physique – and balancing skills. His slim, but masculine build would suit “Skating with the Stars” quite ‘handsomely.’
Tenley Molzahn – the former “Bachelor” contestant of Jake’s season and runner-up of “Bachelor Pad.” This lady would look beautiful on the ice. She’s a trained dancer, not in couple’s dancing. Watching her learn difficult skating moves along with working exclusively with one person would be exciting. On “Bachelor Pad” she and Kiptyn Locke did a fantastic job dancing in one the show’s final episodes. She alwasy wanted to be on “Dancing with the Stars.” Will ABC give her a chance being a contestant on “Skating with the Stars”?
Fran Drescher – not much has been reported on Fran Drescher lately. She’s funny and would be a kick to watch on “Skating with the Stars.” She’s an elegant lady and would bring some comedic relief to the show. Drescher would add a touch of romance to the ice rink.
Jon Hamm – now “Skating with the Stars” would be an absolute hit with the “Mad Men” actor himself added to the cast list. Who could resist the tall, dark, and handsome Jon Hamm skating on thin ice? With his impressive build and interest in sports such as tennis, swimming, and football, he would have the discipline and athletic ability to be a competitor on “Skating.”
Nastia Liukin – perhaps the world’s most beautiful and accomplished Olympic gymnast. Talk about balance, talent, and beauty all wrapped in one. This young woman has it and all she needs is a pair of ice skates to seal the deal. Nastia Liukin would show how ’em how to do it on “Skating with the Stars.”
Will any of these famous celebrities be on the “Skating with the Stars” cast list? Each of these stars would be well worth watching the new ABC series. When contestants are named November 2, we hope to hear at least one of these names.
