Not that ABC is asking or anything, but you know how I like to meter mi cuchara in everything. Well, since William Levy was such a huge hit on Dancing With The Stars this season – bringing in a whole new audience and engaging so many millions of viewers all the way up to the grand finale – you know the major English network is probably going to be looking for another Spanish-language star who can rake in similar or even better numbers next season. Por eso I’ve put together the following list of Latino stars who I think we could all enjoy watching shimmy across the dance floor.
Aaron Diaz: He’s already following in William Levy’s footsteps. You know, participating in tons of photo shoots that… uhm, leave very little to the imagination, shall we say… as well as releasing his own calendar of self portraits for every month of the year. And even though he’s no longer an item with Kate Del Castillo, he’s still managed to grow legions of fans from his telenovelas.
Adamari Lopez: She’s already got one dancing competition championship under her belt. On Univision’s Mira Quién Baila – pretty much the Spanish-language network’s version of #DWTS – Adamari was a fan favorite from the beginning. The little bombshell is also really quite the great dancer. En serio, she’s like a natural or something!
Ana Barbara: Just because I think she would be entertaining to watch. Hardly a stranger to controversy, Ana always has something dramatic going on in her life, and she hardly ever minces words when letting people know how she really feels. Think of her as one of the Kardashians, only in Spanish and with an actual talent besides just being famous. She’s a pretty descent singer and she’s from San Luis Potosi, Mexico like me!!
La Chule: I’ll just be honest. I’ve got kind of a huge crush on Aracely Arambula, ever since I saw her on Corazón Salvaje, and I would probably tune in regularly just to watch her on the dance floor! How good of a dancer she might be, who knows? What I do know is that she’s got a ton of male fans just like me who’d be more than happy to see her cha cha and samba on he show.
Blanca Soto: Well, she’s got about the same amount of acting chops as William Levy, which if you’ve ever watched him on Univision, is not really saying much… but she is beautiful. You can’t deny that. For that reason alone, she’d probably captivate quite the sizable fan base. If I recall correctly, her English is a lot “better good looking” than William’s too. I’m sorry, but there were times I couldn’t make out a single word the Cuban runner up was saying!
Carmen Salinas: Come on! You know you want to see this ñora busting a move too! If Nancy Grace can do it, so can Carmelita Salinas, jajaja! Besides, she’s done everything else already in her decades long career!
Eugenio Derbez: His son was pretty popular on Mira Quién Baila. Eugenio is becoming quite the regular in Hollywood también. With hits like Under The Same Moon and Girl in Progress, this show could solidify the Mexican comedian as a household name in millions of new homes across the country.
Ivan Sanchez: What else is he up to these days anyway? Alright, so he’s probably pretty busy after La Reina Del Sur, but he’s definitely not as hot as he once was when the telenovela La Reina was at its international peak. Out of all the guys on this list, however, he’s probably the one who has the highest potential for bringing in a captive and very dedicated audience. For a while it seemed like every women I knew was in love with him!
Jenni Rivera: Another long shot and probably one to come in as the underdog to root for, Ms. Jenni Rivera would bring in a ginormous audience. She’s like the tía, the mother, the sister, the daughter, the comadre, in every Mexican family… and well, it seems we just can’t get enough of Jenni Rivera! ¿Se la imaginan, echandose un tango? jajaja That would be worth watching.
Sebastian Rulli: Personally, I don’t know much about the guy… other than that he was pretty good on Teresa and that he has legions of female fans lusting after him as well. If none of the others will do it, Sebastian seems like a pretty safe bet.
So there you have it, ABC! You can thank me after you send me my check.
Who else would you recommend for Dancing With The Stars?
Would you take anyone off this list?
Enrique Iglesias, pleaaassee! Love Adamari Lopez … Amigas y Rivales. 🙂
Enrique would be good. Someone else recommended Chayanne also 🙂
I think Adamari did a local (P.R.) DWTS show but it would be cool to see her on the show. Thanks for the male eye candy.
She was great on Mira Quien Baila!
Chayanne! He is the nicest guy and he can dance. Loved your list, I was cracking up…and as much as I would love to see Chayanne that other guy Ivan Sanchez would be tremendo taco de ojo. I’m still cracking up at Ana Barbara being a Kardashian. Fenomenal!
Muy agradecido, Helena! jajaja… well isn’t she like a Kardashian, only with talent… and by the way you are not the first person to suggest Chayanne. Seems like he’s already got a fanbase for him on the show 🙂
Sebastian!!!! por supuesto!! para siempre! Sebastian Rulli! 😀
What did I say? Sebastian has dedicated fans 🙂
Hey Juan! You left out one very famous Mexican star… Drum roll please!!! LUCERO. I think she’s one of the most beautiful and talented stars Mexico has right now. She would be perfect for dwts. Besides, her english is perfect. She needs to come to america and make sitcoms instead of novelas. What do you think?
Jorge, I honestly love that addition. Lucero is beautiful and talented… She’s also one of those stars who can bring in both men and women as she is probably one of Mexico’s last darlings. I’ve always thought she was the last of a rare breed… the true Mexican actress and beauty! Thanks for throwing her name in the ring.
Carmelita would probably want an Aventurera themed dance. Funny!
I’d let her have it… just to watch her dance 🙂
Si entra a competir Carmen Salinas creo que sería el principio del fin para DWTS!!!
I would like to see Oscar de la Hoya dance. He’s a great athelete, I would love to see if he can bust a move!
Adamaris would be great. Plus, she has a great story to tell.
I think Chayanne would be perfect! He starred in the movie “Dance With Me” which proves he can dance plus he’s very easy on the eye!
There are many styles and genres of dance. African dance is interpretative. Ballet, ballroom and tango are classical dance styles. Square dance and electric slide are forms of step dance, and breakdancing is a type of street dance. Dance can be participatory, social, or performed for an audience. It can also be ceremonial, competitive or erotic. Dance movements may be without significance in themselves, as in ballet or European folk dance, or have a gestural vocabulary or symbolic meaning as in some Asian dances.^.
