Bruce 'Caitlyn' Jenner and ABC television network are milking Bruce's latest gender transformation from man into a 'woman' as rumors have spread the former Olympic triathlon champion will sign for the 21st Season of the dance competition show Dancing With The Stars.
Jenner has been interested in joining Dancing With The Starts, where a bunch of D-list celebrities compete for the ballroom trophy, since he was still Bruce. But since becoming Caitlyn, her possibility of competing in the show has become more likely as studio producers are aware that Jenner could draw serious ratings for the show.
In an interview with Wendy Williams Show, Dancing With The Stars pro dancer Tony Dovolani said the network is seriously considering Caitlyn Jenner on the show and described the people behind DWTS as "groundbreaking people," reported Celeb Dirty Laundry. Dovolani said, "Why not? We're groundbreaking people. I think she is going to inspire a lot of people out there."
Back in Season 13, Dancing With The Stars featured transgender Chaz Bono.
Having Jenner on Dancing With The Stars could be a huge ratings boost for the show. The 65-year-old Jenner generated 18 million viewers in her infamous Diane Sawyer interview, according to Liberty Voice. A follow up special on E! was seen by an estimated three million people.
Since her stunning June 1 revelation on Vanity Fair about the completion of her gender transformation, the former Olympian now known as 'Caitlyn' is hot topic again and flooded with offers of interviews and appearances.
Reports said many campaigns are lining up to ask Jenner to be their spokesperson and are willing to pay Caitlyn $100,000 per motivational talk. Jenner is expected to earn $40 million this year alone and an estimated $450 million over the next five years.
The entire Jenner/Kardashian clans are reported to be huge fans of the reality dance competition show, Dancing With The Stars. Kim Kardashian and Rob Kardashian, of Keeping up With The Kardashians, both competed in separate seasons of the show with Kim surviving only a couple of episodes but Rob was crowned the a runner up after J.R Martinez.
We earlier reported that Rob is rumored to make a comeback in the competition after joining the show in season 13. the youngest Kardashian has been given an open invitation to rejoin the show and the producers have offered to also ask Rumer Willis and Charlotte McKinney to spend time with him in the long-running dance reality franchise.
However, the 28-year-old Rob needs to lose some weight before he finally agrees to a return stint at Dancing With The Stars. A source said, "Rob hasn't ruled it out," and described the young Kardashians as "the happiest anyone ever saw this kid was when he was dancing every day." Of course, the $50,000 cash offer for Rob to appear on again on Dancing With The Stars is truly enticing for any Kardashian.
Other names that are rumored to be appearing in Dancing With the Stars Season 21 are Amanda Bynes, Amber Rose, Steve Ballmer, Jalen Rose, Jamie Chung and Demi Moore, mother of Season 20 co-champion and actress Rumer Willis (Rumer won the DWTS Season 20 title with Val Chmerkovskiy).
