Dancing with Castroneves

Earlier this summer IndyCar magazine had an article where Helio Castroneves interviewed himself. Yes, really. They asked him to write down questions he would ask an anonymous driver, then they had him give his answers. Witty.

One of the questions was:

"Dancing with the Stars" or Grey's Anatomy"?
"Dancing with the Stars"

The editor then asked Helio if he had any plans to be on the show. "If they ask me, sure. I know samba."

It would seem Helio may have been dropping hints even then, as now word is leaking from places like TMZ.com that he will in fact be a contestant on the upcoming season of the show.

I've never watched the show, but I have heard it is prone to breaking up relationships. I hope Happy Helio doesn't get a little TOO happy, if you know what I mean. Here is a list of the competitors.

Aaron Carter
Wayne Newton
Mark Cuban
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Lou Ferrigno
Richard Quest
Helio Castroneves
Jane Seymour
Tori Spelling
Jennie Garth
Nia Peeples
Gisele Bundchen
Sabrina Bryan

And here I though Lou Ferrigno had died years ago.

(My thanks to SEVERAL readers for forwarding this to me. It would seem lots of folks are excited already to vote for their guy.)

UPDATE: The IndyStar is covering this as well, though hedging their bets until the official announcement. Meanwhile, Jennifer is excited.
