"I'm excited to recruit more athletes to our show," Cheryl said. "I've always said it, but I still think [New York Giants player] Victor Cruz would be amazing. I see some of his moves, I see his bubbly personality."
Cheryl also wants to branch away from DWTS’s usual focus on football players. "We need a swimmer, we need a hockey player, we need a soccer player," she said. "I think [skier] Lindsey Vonn would be great, but I also think [swimmer] Michael Phelps would be amazing when he retires. Everyone has to move on, and I think DWTS is a great platform for the next step."
Great suggestions! But those are ideas for next spring’s season of DWTS. This fall they are doing All-Stars and Cheryl said she’s down with the idea of mixing and matching celebs with new pros. "If we have a mixture of winners, people switching partners, maybe I would be with my original partner,” she said, “or Karina would be with her original partner, but having it mixed and matched, would be really interesting."
