Dancing With The Stars – Sophia From MKR A Contestant

These days it is not a bad thing to be a villain on a reality TV show as it can make you stand out from the pack. For Sophia Pou from the last series of My Kitchen Rules her fifteen minutes of fame has been extended with a role on Dancing With The Stars.

Sophia and and her friend Ashlee created columns of chatter when they were on MKR with their witty but bitchy asides about the other contestants and their cooking. She was a polarising figure. However her being cast on Dancing has just made it interesting and confirms they are trying to aim it for a younger audience. Sophie will be partnered with Rachael Finch’s husband Michael Mitzner.

Kym Johnston is now confirmed to join the judging table with Joshua Horner out. Daniel Macpherson’s co-host has not been confirmed.

The full list is:

Tina Arena –  Singer-songwriter, actress and record producer.

Jesinta Campbell – Miss Universe Australia 2010

Rhiannon Fish – Home and Away actor

Sally Obermeder – TV presenter

Sophia Pou – My Kitchen Rules star

Libby Trickett – Olympic Gold medallist

Tony Barber – TV Legend

Cosentino – Grand Illusionist

Steve Hooker – Olympic Gold medallist

Brendan Jones – Radio personality

Jordan Stenmark – Supermodel twin

Zac Stenmark – Supermodel twin

Dancing With The Stars coming soon to SEVEN.

“Star”? With Braces there ,it’s now:

Dancing With Garbage.

When are you a STAR? When you have 20 seconds of fame on TV. I love DWTS but I really don’t want to see Sophia on my TV screen. I just hope she will be the first one to get booted.

Screw Sophia, I’ll be watching it for the Stenmark twins. Woof. They better have a pole dancing night and those shirts better be coming off.

OMG Littlepetal, that’s exactly how I like my men! Buff, in their jocks, numbered and forming an orderly line…

At 73 is Tony Barber the oldest contestant to have appeared on DWTS? I believe he has had three hip replacements over the years. Good luck to him.

Dawn Fraser was on a few years ago and I think she would have been older than 73. The oldies usually go pretty early on.

I am impressed that BDD was the first to comment….was going to mention it on the Masterchef 2014 thread but thought it inappropriate so glad RR has commented on it here. I too hope she gets out early but it will be a hoot to see if the mouth matches the actions on the dance floor. If I was Rachel I would be watching her like a hawk!

And poor Rachel is pregnant

Sophia is not really a “star” so I don’t know why she was chosen.
People like Tina Arena must be hard up for money to go on this show.
The Stenmark twins were just on ANTM tonight, the girls were just swooning over them!

11 Littlepetal { 08.27.13 at 10:22 pm }

I read Tina Arena has a new album out in October. She is also writing a book. Need all the exposure.

12 daisy { 08.27.13 at 10:33 pm }

I heard some RTV radio commentator talking about this show and the main point…”Sophia who????
Someone who was hated on MKR. No star.”

13 daisy { 08.28.13 at 8:38 am }

I will give the show a go but skip Sophia. I saw more than enough on MKR.

14 brain dead dave { 08.28.13 at 8:48 am }

I guess it had to be Tony Barber. Rolf Harris wasn’t available.

15 Bolders { 08.28.13 at 8:59 am }

Re Sopia being involved.

That there.

Is one serious bit of bullshit.

16 brain dead dave { 08.28.13 at 9:08 am }

I think it only fair that Tatts should be included, being both integral parts of that loathsome package deal. It takes two ~ to hiss and spit and at the judges and their of course vastly inferior competition.

Those braces should really light up a treat under a mirror ball.

17 Jason { 08.28.13 at 9:23 am }

It seems every series they seem to be scraping lower and lower to get “stars”…..

18 daisy { 08.28.13 at 9:26 am }

Have Kath or Kel ever been on. Either of them would be good.

19 Sophia fan { 08.28.13 at 1:04 pm }

Unfair! Sophia is an established star. She has a huge body of work and a lovely personality.

I love Reality villains. There should be a full reality show revolved around them. Tim from Big Brother, Sophia MKR, Davin from I Will Survive, Margie Biggest Loser, lol. It would be the BEST!!
