Rumors had previously circulated about an appearance by none other than Louie Vito on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. We even asked him about it on a past Hump Day. But alas, Louie had been beaten out by some gymnast and snowboarding was once again not that big of a deal. But what’s this? The Olympics are this year and Louie is (still) a hopeful. The geniuses at ABC finally got smart and Louie is officially a member of the new cast! (He’s a star, we think.)
Check out his bio on ABC.com. “We can’t wait to watch this champion pro boarder shuffle down from the slopes to the floor of the Dancing with the Stars set in Season 9.” Neither can we ABC, neither can we.
(Rumor is this deal is worth $250k plus 50k for each week he advances! Dance hard Louie.)
