McIntyre Had Second Thoughts About Dancing Show
Former NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK singer JOEY McINTYRE was so doubtful about appearing on reality show DANCING WITH THE STARS, he initially walked away after agreeing a deal.
McIntyre, who eventually lost to American actress KELLY MONACO on the competitive ballroom-dancing show, admits he was "freaked" out when he thought of taking part in the contest.
He says, "My first reaction was, 'What a great opportunity to learn all these dances and have your personal trainer,' and then I sort of agreed to it verbally. Then I freaked out.
"I said, 'Why would I wanna learn all these dances in front of millions of people and potentially lose a dance contest to EVANDER HOLYFIELD?' I was like, 'I'm done,' and I thought it was a bad dream and I was joking to my wife about it.
"Then the producers from the BBC in Britain... charmed me back into the show. I'm glad they did because we had a blast. It was an amazing ride."20/07/2005 02:12
