I’ve seen one episode of “Dancing with the Stars” in my lifetime, and really, that was too many. Tom Bergeron gives me the hives. But at least, when I watched that episode in 2007, I could identify the “star” contestants. Most of them were on the backsides of their careers (read: Washed up), but at least they had careers at one point.
Now, I’m not so sure. Apparently, starring in 13 episodes of a reality series counts as a career these days. Here are the photos of the 12 contestants in this season of “DWTS.” How many can you identify?
I knew 1 and 3. It would’ve taken me a second, but I’d have identified 5. I know number 6’s face, but likely wouldn’t have been able to name him, and 7 I might have been able to identify in the right context (with a microphone standing with two other women) but never alone. The rest? No clue. Many of their names, I have never eve heard of, although I feel a little guilty for not knowing who number 12 is. I’m not sure why I feel guilty, but I feel like I should probably feel guilty.
If, for some reason, you actually want to know these people’s names, you can find out over on THR. My advice? Ignorance is bliss.
