Phil Hellmuth Rumored to Appear on 'Dancing with the Stars'
11-Time WSOP Champion Could Appear for Spring 2011 Season
The 46-year-old Hellmuth, who has unsuccessfully auditioned for a spot in the past, wrote: OMG! Phil Hellmuth (me!) on “Dancing with the Stars!” Outrageous! Might make a fool out of myself on Worldwide Television one more time…
Although the cast for the spring season will not be announced until sometime next month, Hellmuth’s Tweet gives hope that he will be selected for the popular show. The date of the season premiere has yet to be determined.
Hellmuth will not be the only regular on the tournament circuit to have graced the dance floor in front of millions of viewers. Actress and poker player Shannon Elizabeth was a contestant on the sixth season of Dancing with the Stars in 2008. She was the seventh celebrity eliminated from the contest.
In addition, other Team UB Pros have been able to make an appearance on national TV outside of poker. Annie Duke finished second on Celebrity Apprentice two years ago, and Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho appeared on CBS’s The Amazing Race in 2009.
