Phil Hellmuth all but verifies DWTS appearance

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 22, 2011 Posted in Poker Gossip | No Comments »

In yet another not so vaguely referenced Tweet, Phil Hellmuth has once again linked his name to the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. This latest hint comes on the heels of a number of Tweets over the past couple months referencing the Poker Brat’s possible appearance on the hit show.

His latest Tweet linked to an article on, which listed a number of possible candidates for the cast on the upcoming season of DWTS. Hellmuth’s Tweet seems to all but confirm that he will be on the upcoming season: “Who is “Dancing With The Stars?”

So poker players; get your prop bets and “When will Hellmuth be Eliminated” pools going, because it looks like Phil will be bringing his oversized ego and oversized shoes to the show –my money is on him being eliminated first, although he has hinted at taking dance lessons recently so who knows, he might surprise us.

According to the Examiner article, other possible contestants include: “Jennifer Beals from Flashdance, Candace Cameron from Full House, Carlos Leon (Madonna’s ex boyfriend), talk show host Wendy Williams, Playboy’s Kendra Wilkinson, Brett Favre, actor Lorenzo Lamas, former Miss America Lee Meriweather, poker player Phil Hellmuth, wrestler Maria Keanellis (who also competed on The Celebrity Apprentice), and even Al Sharpton. Word on the street is that Jennifer Beals and Al Sharpton turned down the offer.”
