Do YOU want to see Papa Palin on the next season of Dancing with the Stars?
Bristol Palin was such a hit on last season’s Dancing with the Stars, the producers reportedly are after her dad, Todd Palin, for Season 12!
“They want him big time,” a source told E! Online. “They’d love Sarah, but they don’t think that will ever happen, so why not go for the dad.”
“Bristol the Pistol,” 20, took America by storm on the hit reality series and made it all the way to the final three dancers, ending in third place. Part I of the finale garnered 22.5 million viewers alone, which was the biggest audience for any non-sports related program of the week. Clearly, the Palin’s draw viewers.
Sarah even said herself that producers originally were after her husband, not her oldest daughter. “They wanted Todd to be on the show,” she said at a political event in October. “I think that would have been cool to see, too. But here Bristol is, out of her comfort zone, doing something all new.”
ABC reps told HollywoodLife.com they are not commenting on casting choices at this time. However, an insider on the show said producers are always after anyone and everyone who they think will get viewers.
“We would want the pope if it was possible, but honestly, do you think it will happen?” our source dished.
