How does Derek Hough think Ariana Madix will fare in the upcoming season of DWTS? The judge and professional dancer knows that there is a chance Madix could make it to the ballroom. So, what are his thoughts on the Vanderpump Rules star vying for the Mirrorball Trophy? Read on for more details.
How Does Derek Hough Think Ariana Madix Will Fare On DWTS?
Shortly after ‘Scandoval’ broke, rumors started flying that Ariana Madix would be joining DWTS. The next season had yet to be cast but she was a top contender. Additionally, the logistics between the networks were being hashed out and everything seemed ready to roll. At this point, Ariana seems to be everywhere, in commercials for all different brands and such. Viewers adore her so choosing her for DWTS would just make sense for the former SUR bartender. So, what does pro dancer and DWTS judge Derek Hough have to say about her joining the long-running series?
According to TMZ, he is all for it. Hough claims that Ariana Madix “follows the formula” to be on the show. So, what exactly does that mean? He explained that these reality stars get name recognition and then join the dancing competition to boost who they are even higher. Derek shared that he has a lot on his plate with wedding planning and is not all that familiar with ‘Scandoval’ and what actually transpired. However, he feels that this story has legs and they should run with it.
No casting decisions have been made just yet and it will be some time. Yet, Derek is all in favor of Ariana Madix joining the series. In fact, it would add to the Vanderpump Rules’ Season 11 storyline. Especially if the show is looking to go in a different direction as opposed to always being in the restaurants. This would not be the first time a Bravo show has been on the set of DWTS. Lisa Vanderpump was on the show when she was on RHOBH. They showed her practicing and her ultimate elimination from the series.
The truth is that Ariana Madix is thriving since her breakup with Tom Sandoval. She has been invited to a plethora of high-profile events. Plus, she has been a featured guest on a few talk shows as well as received endorsement deals. She represents BIC razors and Uber Eats with Scheana Shay and Lala Kent. Additionally, she has a new man, Daniel Wai who she was first seen with at Coachella. Finally, she and Katie Maloney are planning to open their sandwich shop in the near future. DWTS would just be the icing on the cake.
