ABC Has Fingers Crossed For "Dancing With The Geeks"
HOLLYWOOD - After the smash success of the reality show "Dancing With The Stars", ABC is upping the ante with the upcoming "Dancing With The Geeks".
"Quite frankly," explains DWTS director Alex Rudzinski, "we didn't think any of them could dance. And well, we were right..."
DWTG producer R. U. Folinfordis describes his strategy. "A lot of people were wanting to feature famous geeks like Bill Gates, Wil Wheaton, Steve Jobs and Felicia Day. But I wanted to give some unknowns, particularly gamers, a chance to really embarrass themselves, and what better place than on television in front of millions of viewers?"
Some of the geeks that have been chosen as contestants for the new series voiced their concerns and their excitement. "My God, it's high school all over again," said CaptTrips. Usux10 commented, "Felicia Day won't be dancing with me?" 2Hot4u expressed her excitement. "I'm getting out of the house and dancing with boys! Throw in a lifetime supply of pizza and I'm in heaven!" Guildfan also commented on his selection. "Felicia Day won't be dancing with me?" he said.
