She’d be the oldest contestant yet — and who wouldn’t tune in every week to watch her get down?
Just days after her hilarious debut on Saturday Night Live, it’s being reported there’s another show DYING to get 88-year-old Betty White to perform live – Dancing with the Stars! Rob Shuter at PopEater cites a show insider who tells him: “Dancing With The Stars would love to have Betty White grace the dance floor next season. Not only would she guarantee great ratings, she would also make it easier for a lot of big celebrities — who up to now have been sitting on the fence — to sign on. There is no one bigger or more respected than Betty White.” This sounds like it could be an amazing idea!
Betty’s SNL appearance May 8 was not only one of the show’s funniest episodes, bust also drew the best ratings the program has had since 2008. DWTS is hoping that same magic can translate to their show, especially since their viewership has actually decreased over this season! Betty may seem a bit old for the program — she’s eight years older than this season’s oldest contestant, Buzz Aldrin — but if she can jive like she can joke she should have no problem competing with the show’s younger contestants.
