Who is Maria Menounos’s Second DWTS Pro Pick? Tristan MacManus!
They should make everyDancing With the Stars couple announce which pro or celeb from their own season they'd want to dance with if they weren't paired with each other. It's a great question — and pretty revealing.
Good Morning America correspondent (and DWTS alum) Cameron Mathison made Maria Menounos and Derek Hough answer the toughie during his interview. He started by pointing to Derek and asking, "If Maria wasn't dancing with you, what other pro dancer would she like to be dancing with?"
Cameron made them write their answers down and reveal at the same time.
Maria said, "I love Mark too, but I didn't think about Mark because he's so Katherine's." Derek added, "She's very territorial. She doesn't want to think about Katherine's territory." (Yeah, right. She's just into the hotness of our Irish Lucky Charm!)
Cameron then asked who Derek would want to dance with, if he didn't have Maria?
"Does Derek have a crush on Katherine?" Cameron asked Maria. "I think he does,” Maria replied, “Because she's really good and he probably wishes he had her." Maria ducked her head in an obvious (and successful!) attempt to fish for compliments from Derek.
