Can't wait till they til him he needs to be more masculine :EVILLE: I'm always happy when skaters get more mainstream exposure, but I really wish they had cast Johnny. That would have been hilarious!

I read about him doing DWTS but I figured that meant he was skipping the tour.... doing both is :eek: :eek:

We know he can do paso doble, he did that SP for about 5 seasons. :P I bet he does well with all the standard dances too, cause he has nice posture and line, and he should smoke the tango. I'm a bit worried for the faster and sexier Latin dances.

I hope Cheryl isn't his partner. She nearly ruined Gilles for me. :yikes:

Conceivably, Evan could miss more than 1/3 of the entire tour.Obviously, DWTS is paying him enough to make it worth his while. ;) And I think his PR team (part of IMG, that runs SOI) realizes the exposure will benefit him more in the long run. A lot of people watched the Olys, but I bet even more follow (or are at least familiar with) DWTS. This gives him a chance to get mainstream exposure and gain fans outside his niche market.

And since my SOI show is on a Thurs, I'll be seeing Evan when he's rested. :P (although now I'm worried that he and D/W will switch off shows and I'll miss them)

That's a good point. If Evan does well on DWTS he'll gain many new fans who would shell out for his SOI appearences in future years. So this is good for Evan AND for the tour. I'm looking forward to seeing him try out all the different dance styles. I think with his sports background, his good posture and line and ballet training, he should do well.

However I'm just worried about him, the schedule sounds absolutely exhausting. He doesn't have a day off! Hopefully he won't hurt himself and the quality of his skating will not suffer from the reduced practice time. :(

I would send the producers :bribe: to have Evan get Espana Capri for his Paso.

Good for Evan but how is he supposed to train his DWTS programs with his partner if he's away most of the week doing SOI?

Ok I think I'm missing something. What's with the race to the B list, Evan? DWTS is what you do when you have no other income opportunities left and you want to either make a few $ and fight desperately to stay in the public eye (Gosselin) or you are trying to find a cheesy way to revive your career (everyone else). Evan should be doing commercials and speaking tours, etc unless he's getting major coin for this...or this was the ONLY proposal his agent got.

Has he ever danced with a girl? His work ethic would make him passable and he should make it about half way through although he will have limited audience appeal. Jake the bachelor should be horrendous. The dude doesn't appear to have any soul but the women will keep voting for him until they either can't stand to watch him butcher dances or he finally gives them a shirtless dance.

I was thinking the other way. How is he going to rehearse for SOI if he's going to do DWTS?

A race to the B list is a step up for him, so this show is a good thing. This is still one of the highest rated shows on television, so I can't see why he wouldn't want to do it.

If he's doing programs he already has, then all he has to do is learn the group numbers - considering he won't be there much of the time, I can't imagine he'll have a major role, so should be easy enough.

DWTS is another thing altogether - he has to learn a new discipline, *and* new dances every week.

I'm guessing that DWTS is what's going to suffer here, along with the fans who bought tickets for SOI shows he's now not going to be in.

It's a mainstream B list;) More people watch DWTS than skating - even at Olympics.
Besides, one actually COULD do amazing things- I don't always watch DWTS, but Apolo/ Julianne team was unfreakingbelievably good.
LOL about whether Evan has danced with a girl. There is always a first:lol:

I would rather see Evan at Worlds and Johnny on DWTS . . . but this could be good.

Besides, I bet team Evan is thinking that he already won Worlds, so a another is not so important.

If he's not doing all the SOI shows, he's probably not in any of the group numbers and only has to perform his own programs. I'm wondering if his partner (whoever that ends up being) will travel on the SOI tour with him.
