"I know I have rhythm and I know I can dance," Jon Gosselin told E! News this week. And why was the father of eight expounding on his dancing skills? Because he wants the producers of Dancing With the Stars to know he's available.
That's right -- after literally calling ex-wife Kate Gosselin an unfit mother for participating in the TV dance competition, Jon is now happy to contemplate the idea that he could do it better.
"No one has said anything to me [about doing the show]," Gosselin said, "But I took ballroom dancing. I'm pretty fluent in that sort of thing." He added: "But after watching it I'm like, Ugh, so much criticism. I think you should go out there and just have fun anyway." (Seriously, if anyone should be used to criticism by now, it's Jon Gosselin.)
DWTS is apparently just one of several future TV possibilities that Gosselin is mulling over; he tells E! that he's "meeting people and seeing what is out there programming-wise." After all, he says, he hasn't been on TV for six whole months.
Would Jon Gosselin be as much of a ratings draw on DWTS as his ex-wife was? Definitely not -- and especially not if he can dance, because we all know that the fun of watching Kate was her fierce competitiveness combined with her total lack of grace and coordination. But judge for yourself; there's a video of the Gosselins dancing together after their Hawaiian vow-renewal ceremony here. As far as we're concerned, the best dancers in the family are clearly the kids.
