Dancing With the Stars Season 14 Casting Rumor: Cheryl Burke Wants Giants’ Victor Cruz
It was only a matter of time. After New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz did his signature touchdown Salsa in the end zone during his team’s winning Super Bowl game, it was like — let the Dancing With the Stars rumors commence! Which pro will be the first to publicly request to dance with this guy on Season 14? Turns out it’s Cheryl Burke.
The two-time DWTS champion had the good timing to be on Good Morning America today to talk about her book and the fact that Season 14 rehearsals start in about three weeks. She doesn't know who will be cast and she said she hasn't even read any casting rumors yet. "Most of the time I don't even know who my partner is. Emmitt Smith I had to Google.” (No offense, Season 3 winner!)
But when she was asked who she would want to dance with, if she could have anybody for the Spring 2012 season, she immediately said Victor Cruz. "Doesn't he have, like, some Salsa? I saw that. I would love to dance with him."
And now it’s on the record. Sorry, Tim Tebow. You’re last month’s news.
