Breaking Down the Latest 'DWTS' Rumors


From boxing champ Mike Tyson to disgraced politician Anthony Weiner to "Jersey Shore" diva Snooki, ET gets an expert opinion on some of the rumored contestants for the next season of "Dancing with the Stars."

TV GuideMagazine's William Keck has heard the rumors and sits down to separate the long shots from actual contenders who might get a chance to compete for the mirror ball trophy. 

Tyson actually showed off some smooth dance moves on Italy's version of the show, so he could be a shoe-in if asked to join "Dancing with the Stars."

But Keck said he feels it would be too soon for Weiner to appear on the show since his political scandal is still too fresh. However, he said Snooki has a huge following and might be able to show off some dance steps nobody even knows she has. "'Dancing with the Stars' could be a platform for her to show us what she's able to do -- besides just scream and hit people," Keck said.
