'Dancing With the Stars' Pairings Leaked Online?
A list of Season 13's possible groupings was deleted from a Wikipedia page Tuesday on the eve of the show's official announcement.
The Dancing With the Stars Season 13 professional pairings may have been accidentally leaked on the Internet on Tuesday, a day before the show's announcement is set to air exclusively on ABC's Good Morning America.
A Wikipedia page focusing on the dancing competition's upcoming season went live with a chart containing the names of each of the 12 contestants and the professional partner with whom they could be matched.
But sometime after those names were posted, the page was edited, and the partners were deleted. The Hollywood Reporter obtained a screenshot of the page before it was updated (see below).
The pairings revealed are as follows:
David Arquette and Kym Johnson
Ron Artest and Cheryl Burke
Chaz Bono and Peta Murgatoyd
Elisabetta Canalis and Valentin Chmerkovsky
Kristin Cavallari and Derek Hough
Nancy Grace and Tristan McManus
Rob Kardashian and Lacey Schwimmer
Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya
Ricki Lake and Mark Ballas
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff
Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani
Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovsky
ABC declined to comment on the accuracy of the post, telling THR, "All will be revealed on GMA Wednesday."
The network revealed the names of the 12 contestants who will be competing on the show's upcoming season Monday night during Bachelor Pad 2. Season 13 kicks off with a two-hour premiere at 8 p.m. Sept. 19.
