While the official cast announcement won’t be made until Wednesday morning, we’re pretty sure we know of at least one Dancing With The Stars celebrity and pro-pairing
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has made plenty of statements following his London 2012 Olympic swimming victories that he’d love to be a contestant in the ABC ballroom dance competition. And dance pro Karina Smirnoff has let it slip that her partner’s first name is Ryan.
The 35-year-old DWTS vet confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the first name of her celebrity dancer is “Ryan.’ She told the publication, “I’m just going to say my partner’s first name is Ryan, so you go wild–Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling…you pick! But it’s Ryan, and it is a hottie.”
We know Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling are way to A-list to ever appear on DWTS. And Ryan Seacrest already has so many jobs the man barely sleeps.
By process of elimination the 11 time Olympic medalist fits the “Ryan” and “hottie” description perfectly.
