Season 22 Dancing With the Stars spoilers and rumors are building up steam with the premiere just about a month away. Few solid details about the upcoming cast have emerged yet, but people are buzzing over some talk that Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex, might be considering a spin on DWTS. What’s the scoop?
So far, the only name seemingly confirmed for Dancing With the Stars Season 22 is Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin. She has been rumored in the past, as well, but it seems that now the time is finally right for her. Fuller House co-stars Candace Cameron-Bure and Lori Loughlin have both recently made comments about supporting Jodie on DWTS this spring, even though Sweetin herself had tried to downplay the rumors.
Now, according to TMZ, Dancing With the Stars spoilers and rumors regarding the possibility of Scott Disick joining the show are swirling. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is never one to play humble, and it seems clear he is quite confident about his ability to shake up DWTS were he to agree to dance. The word is that he is saying that he is interested, but he wants a huge pay day in return.
Of course, Disick would not be the first KUWTK star to join Dancing With the Stars. Kim Kardashian had a fairly disastrous journey in Season 7 with Mark Ballas, being eliminated third. However, Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, did the show in Season 13, partnering with Cheryl Burke. Despite some early reservations, Rob charmed DWTS viewers and finished in second place.
Rumors swirl almost every season about someone from the Kardashian clan doing DWTS, with talk popping up many times in the past couple of years that perhaps Caitlyn Jenner would join the show. In addition, Disick’s possible participation has popped up previously, as well.
Would Scott really consider doing Dancing With the Stars? Spoilers and rumors tease that he claims to be willing to sign up, but only if he gets a big paycheck. Insiders say that Disick is actually serious about the offer this time around, but he supposedly wants a guaranteed $500,000 to do it.
Typically, the show pays a moderate amount to celebrities, with incentives adding more cash for each week the star lasts. Those making it to the DWTS finale can end up with some decent money, but the typical offer would still fall short of Disick’s rumored demands.
Sources detail that Dancing With the Stars is refusing to hit Disick’s threshold, and he is holding out until they do. While it is widely believed that some stars do earn more cash than others to sign onto the show, it seems that Disick’s demands are likely too high for DWTS to sign off on, and both sides will wait to see if the other budges.
Would DWTS viewers be interested enough in watching Disick dance to justify a large payout? Scott’s participation would surely be controversial and buzzworthy, and some argue that is just what the show needs going into this next round of dancing. People are buzzing about these Dancing With the Stars rumors over on PureDWTS, and reactions from the readers may well reinforce why the show is said to be interested in Disick as a spring cast member.
Scott has a reputation of being charming and funny, but he is also extremely confident and often a bit of a mess these days. Would he show up cocky and entitled when it is time to rehearse with his partner, or would he show another side that could win over DWTS fans, like Rob managed to do? If the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star did sign up, who should his partner be this spring?
At this point, it may be a bit of a longshot to think that Scott Disick will actually sign on to do Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars. Spoilers on the next cast should emerge soon, as rehearsals are right around the corner, given the March 21 premiere date, so DWTS fans shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to get a feel for who will be dancing this spring.
