If today’s announcement of the Dancing with the Stars All-Stars celebrity/pro pairings was on your entertainment radar —
You’re at the right blog.
When DWTS earlier revealed the celebrities for the season — all past winners, runners-up and audience favorites — I knew I would be torn between three:
- Actor Giles Marini
- Olympian Apolo Ono
- Race car driver Helio Castroneves
They danced in different seasons — the latter two winning DWTS with pro Julianne Hough, who is not returning — but head-to-head? How will I choose?
The pro dancer pairing, of course.
And based on today’s announcement alone, I am prepared to predict the winner of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars:
Actor Giles Marini and dancer Peta Murgatroyd…and here’s why:
- Giles should have won Season 8, but Olympian Shawn Johnson — who is also dancing in All-Stars — secured the popular vote. He deserves redemption.
- Peta won DWTS last season — her first as a pro — so she clearly has the chops.
- Just look at the two of them. Together, how can they lose?
Can’t wait for the season to start and be proven right!
