DWTS’ Tristan MacManus Named One of TV Guide’s Breakout Stars of 2011
Everyone loves Irish "Lucky Charm" Tristan MacManus. The Dancing With the Stars pro was our fake boyfriend for fall’s Season 13 and even though he seems to have moved on from us to fellow pro Kym Johnson, we still gave him our Best Newcomer award for his debut season.
TV Guide has also named Tristan one of the Breakout Stars of 2011. Here's what they wrote about the Irish lad:
"It's only fitting that Dancing added a lucky charm in Season 13. As the two other new pros fell by the wayside in the first two weeks, Tristan took Nancy Grace all the way to the quarterfinals, charming the pants off us with his wit, Irish brogue and boyishly handsome looks, all the while doing what seemed to be impossible: bringing out Grace's sexy and funny sides. And hey, it's not every day that a pro, much less a new one, gets to be the focus of a DanceCenter ad."
Watch that DanceCenter spoof here. They say the “turd” time’s the charm, but we hope Tristan makes it all the way to the finals on his second season of DWTS.
