Who will join the party: Carson Kressley, Sabrina Bryan or Kyle Massey? ABC is making us vote for the lucky 13th All-Star of Dancing With the Stars Season 15 at www.ABC.com/DancingwiththeStars, and the winner will be announced Monday, August 27.
Not sure who should get your votes? We’re sharing arguments for all of them. Here are three for Carson...
1. He’s the life of the party
With six champions, three runners-up, two third-place contestants and, um, Pamela Anderson, this is truly going to be the most competitive season ever. Someone needs to lighten things up — and that’s Carson’s forte. He’s Mr. Entertainment. We pegged him as the possible champion back on Season 13, knowing he would be fun to watch and hoping he could also dance. Well, he wasn’t the worst dancer, but he was far from the best. Still, he’s such good TV that, after he was eliminated, they had him return to talk to fans in the audience. If fans don’t vote for Carson as the “Viewers Choice,” ABC should still bring him back again.
2. He’s the ultimate underdog
Carson and Anna Trebunskaya were eliminated fifth on Season 13, which is the lowest placement of any other All-Star contestant or candidate. If viewers vote him in, it will show the power of personality and push him to deliver the goods so he’s not just the automatic first boot. Fans will be rooting for him to improve — or at least not be horrible — and we need a journey of improvement to watch, as opposed to just seeing which pro-level celeb is just slightly better or worse than the others.
3. We love to watch him flirt
Carson has great taste in men. He flirted with crush Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Season 13, but he also appreciates the lucky charms of Irish pro Tristan MacManus. With Gilles Marini in the house, we can only imagine he’ll be added to Carson’s file of Hot Men To Flirt With. We live vicariously through his witty innuendos and can’t stop smiling at the idea that he’ll just pick up where he left off last fall. How can you not love him?
Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out the full All-Stars cast list here.
