The Dancing With The Stars contestants continue to work their butts off for next week's premiere show, and we can't wait to see all of their hard work pay off!
Season 13 may be the most controversial yet, with the addition of Cher's transgender son, Chaz Bono, as well as Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Carson Kressley. Bono is paired up with Dancing hottie Lacey Schwimmer, and the show's executive producer recently revealed they considered giving Kressley a male partner.
â€œWe thought about it. We try to follow what happens in real ballroom competitions. That was the original intention of the show. And while we are aware that there are same-sex couples, the competitions are usually mixed-gendered,â€ DWTS executive producer Conrad Green revealed.
Should DWTS consider same-sex dancing partners next season?
Who are you rooting for this season?
