On Monday, we learned the celebrity cast for season 13 of Dancing With The Stars on ABC and on that list was Hope Solo. When the pairings were announced this morning, we learned that Hope Solo will be dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Hope is excited about it! Read on for more…
It’s no secret that Maksim Chmerkovskiy wanted to be partnered with soccer star, Hope Solo, as earlier this year Maksim campaigned for her. Maksim Chmerkovskiy paid a visit to Sportscenter and after showing slides of Hope’s fancy footwork, gushed that she could use that on the dance floor. And luckily for Maks, his wish was granted as it was announced this morning that he would, indeed, be dancing on season 13 of Dancing With The Stars with Hope Solo.
How does Hope Solo feel about dancing with Maks? She is excited as she recently said: “It was so bizarre. He wasn’t talking about my play, but about wanting me as a dancer. I was shocked. But it was funny and cute,” of Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s campaign to get her on the show. She went on to add of Maks: “He is fiery. I like a little bit of attitude. Someone who can push back.”
We think these two may be a power couple this season – what do you think? Which couple are you looking the most forward to this season on Dancing With The Stars? Do you think he has a shot at winning? Comment and share your thoughts with us!
