“Dancing With the Stars” champion J.R. Martinez is having a great few months. First he takes the trophy on the dancing competition show, then he and his girlfriend announce that they’re expecting a baby, which he promises he won’t name Apple Cider or Salami. Now he’s revealing a possible new contestant on the reality show that will get football fans pretty excited.
In an interview with Celebuzz, J.R. revealed, “I actually did come across Tim Tebow, and we chatted about [“Dancing With the Stars”] for a second. I thought he’d do pretty well on the show!” So, will the football star be on the upcoming season? Doesn’t look like it. “He said, ‘Maybe in a year’ … That’s pretty much what he said,” revealed Martinez.
Tebow isn’t the only celebrity Martinez suggested for the show. “I think Sherri Shepherd from ‘The View’ would be
good,” he said. “We talked about it a couple times when I was still in
New York. I think she’d do good on it.”
