Phil Hellmuth announced on Twitter Saturday that he is going to be on Dancing With the Stars.
“OMG! Phil Hellmuth (me!) on Dancing With the Stars! Outrageous! Might make a fool out of myself on worldwide television one more time.”
The amazing part of his tweet is that the UB Pro didn't name drop any of the celebrities that he will be competing against. The obvious answer to the lack of name drops is that he has no idea who he will be competing against yet. Hopefully he shows poker in a positive light and won't lay on the dance floor like a blob of jelly when he is eliminated.
Hellmuth appearing on a reality show isn't new for poker pros. Jean-Robert Bellande was on Survivor a few seasons back and UB Pros Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho were on The Amazing Race recently. A rumor is going around that Michelle and Ho will be competing in another season of The Amazing Race, but it has yet to be confirmed.
