Every year, the producers of Dancing with the Stars
announce that this
season there will be "big" stars. Sometimes this happens. Sometimes... not so much. But, if a DWTS
pro gets her birthday wish, Dancing with the Stars
season 14 could have at least one prominent contestant. Could Tim Tebow head to Dancing with the Stars
Don't get too excited yet, Tebow fans. The Denver Broncos quarterback has neither committed to nor indicated an interest in the show. So why are we even bothering to talk about this (other than the obvious desire to get both DWTS
and football fans to read an article)?
The answer is Karina Smirnoff. On Saturday, January 14, the DWTS
pro dancer told NYDailyNews.com
that Tim Tebow is her dream celebrity for the next season. The now-34-year-old dancer was celebrating her birthday in Las Vegas when she explained, "All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on Dancing with the Stars
. Tim is a very talented athlete. That was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver."
Will Karina Smirnoff's Tim Tebow wish come true?
While Tebow certainly doesn't need Dancing with the Stars
, he might want to consider it. After all, DWTS
season 14, which begins on March 19, will not conflict in any meaningful way with Tim Tebow's football commitments. Tebow might also consider the need to capitalize on his current prominence -- a stint on Dancing with the Stars
has been a positive for such NFL stars as Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward.
Would the inclusion of Tim Tebow be a good thing for Dancing with the Stars
? Definitely. The show always includes an athlete or two, and football players have traditionally been popular and successful dancers. Plus, the originator of an Internet meme -- "tebowing" -- would bring in plenty of viewers.
And just think of the Tebow-inspired dances!
We still have a few weeks before we get the official contestants for Dancing with the Stars
season 14. But we can now start the speculation with Tim Tebow!
