DWTS – Who Are These Stars?

Now that my wife has taken the television out of the bedroom, I have no escape when she watches Dancing With The Stars. Surprisingly I found myself beginning to enjoy the show.

The judges are hilarious and the dancing is great. Of course being me, I had to find something wrong with the show. And what could that possibly be? Some of the stars are not actually stars. How can it be Dancing With The Stars if there are no stars.Some of the people on the show are only known because of others in their family. What makes Rob Kardashian a star? His sisters and parents are the known ones. How does that make him a star? Others come from reality shows. How are they stars?

What have they accomplished besides drinking to much and making fools of themselves? So here is my list of five non-stars to appear on the show.

Will he marry me or dance with me?



Melissa was one of the contestants in the 13th season of the Bachelor. Although she won, six weeks later it was released that the Bachelor, Jason Mesnick was still in love with runner-up Molly Malaney.

It is sad and I feel bad for her, but come on, does this really make her a star?

I can fly, but can I dance?



Jake Pavelka was a pilot for Atlantic Southeast Airlines and did a few local Dallas commercial before appearing as a contestant on the fifth season of the Bachelorette. He didn't win the affection of the young lady but did come back as the man to wed in the 14th season of the Bachelor. Wow! They can't find true love but maybe they can dance.

What is it with the Bachelor show? I guess appearing in two reality contests makes him a star.

Sharon! Sharon! Our daughter can dance.



Here is the perfect example of becoming famous for being the daughter of a star. Kelly was simply thrust into the limelight after the debut of the reality show The Osbournes. She tried to start a singing career but she most certainly didn't reach the notary that her father did.

Kelly, although a beautiful girl and wonderful dancer, would not have been known if it were not for father Ozzy. This is not stardom. You must make a name for yourself, on your own, then you will be a star.

Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino

With my abs and my name, I am a star or something.



First off, what the heck is 'The Situation” supposed to mean? Jersey Shore is not quite Oscar material. Here we have a guido in a house with a couple of other guidos and girls that can't decide if they want to get drunk then find a guy/girl or just get drunk. This cat is nothing more than a child trapped in a man's body.

How is this guy a star? Is it his accent or just the stupidity of the show? I can't even begin to address this guy. No way he is a star.

Rob Kardashian

You don’t know me, but my sisters are popular.



Here is my number one non-star. Rob Kardashian. Who is this guy? I have actually heard of all the others on this list before they appeared on DWTS, but this blew me away. Everyone knows his sister Kim and that his dad defended O.J. but what has he done.

He is on a show that centers more on his mom and sisters. This guy literally sits in the shadow of his family. Where did the producers get the idea that this cat is a star? I can sit here and go on and on about this one, but it might give me an aneurism. This throws my whole idea of the show off.
