Couple Nick And Vanessa Were Not ‘Dancing With The Stars’ First Choice: EXCLUSIVE
Dancing With The Stars hoped that casting real-life celebrity couple, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, would translate into huge ratings. However, Nick and his wife were not the show’s first choice for a celebrity couple – they really wanted to cast both ‘Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott.
“Both Jonathan and Drew were offered the show but only Drew accepted,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “The show really liked the idea of having the twin brothers compete against each other on the ballroom floor. When Jonathan said, ‘no thanks,’ is when they decided that they would have husband and wife, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, go head-to-head.”
So far the plan has not be working. This season’s show debuted to one of the lowest ratings in the show’s history. OUCH.
