Dancing With the Stars 2013: Katherine Webb Offered a Spot on Season 16 (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Katherine addressed the rumors on Twitter, writing, "Definitely not moving to NYC #justsoyouknow," and "love to dance! But no DWTS."
No one can say she’s not maximizing her 15 minutes of fame!
Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb — who is dating Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron — became an overnight sensation when ESPN commentators couldn’t stop gushing over her beauty during a recent Alabama-Notre Dame game.
She’s now maximizing the attention to benefit her career. Page Six reports the 23-year-old not only just had a shoot for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, but she also landed a gig with Inside Edition to provide live Super Bowl coverage, and she’s planning to pursue a full-time modeling career in New York. Oh, and she was reportedly offered a spot on Dancing With the Stars Season 16 (which starts March 18 on ABC).
According to Page Six, Katherine didn’t say whether she would participate or not, but she has to be considering it.
What do you think of that idea? DWTS has a history of casting lesser-known stars who become fan favorites when viewers get to know them and see them dance. (How many of us were really familiar with J.R. Martinez before Season 13?)
Maybe Katherine could be paired with fan-favorite pro Tristan MacManus, who has yet to be paired with a hot, young partner (à la Melissa Rycroft, Katherine Jenkins and Maria Menounos). She could surprise everyone. Or she could not show up at all. Which would you prefer?
