As Dancing with the Stars on ABC fans anxiously await season 13 casting news, we can’t help wondering if we will ever see a same sex pairing on the show. While we know that Tracy Morgan would not enjoy it, Mark Ballas says he would dance with another man! Keep reading for more!
Dancing With The Stars may never see a same sex pairing on the show, but just in case they do, Mark Ballas is ready and willing to dance with another man. The dance pro recently told Popeater: “I would be totally cool with it. There are other competitions where they have same sex couples. I’d support it. There is a slight inherent disadvantage. Two girls and two men just can’t move like a man and a woman. But you can try.”
Mark Ballas also went on to share that out of the eight male dancers on the show, only one is gay, smashing the typical stereotyping that male dancers are always gay. Mark, confused by the lack of men who dance also said: “It doesn’t make sense that men wouldn’t want to dance. How can you not want to dance with your girl? How can you not want to do that?” Interesting point, and I definitely agree with him here!
Season 13 is scheduled to premiere on September 19, 2011 – stay tuned for more details!
