Shannon Elizabeth has an eye for dancing – the “American Reunion” actress partnered with three-time “Dancing with the Stars” champion Derek Hough for the show’s sixth season.
Though she doesn’t always flip on the TV to catch the reality dance competition, Shannon told Access Hollywood she’s recently been reeled in by British beauty Katherine Jenkins.
“I watch [‘DWTS’] sometimes. Now, I’ve gotta root for Katherine,” Shannon told Access at the Race To Erase MS Gala in Los Angeles on Friday. “I think she’s gotta win it!”
Three Season 14 “DWTS” hopefuls remain heading into next week’s finals – Katherine, NFL star Donald Driver and Cuban sensation William Levy – but Shannon said the classical singer has what it takes to nab the mirrorball trophy, including a world-class partner.
“[Katherine] is really graceful and amazing and a wonderful dancer,” Shannon said. “And I love Mark [Ballas], so I hope they win.”
With her “DWTS” interest renewed, will fans soon see the leggy brunette dusting off her dancing shoes for the upcoming “All-Stars Edition”?
“No, I don’t think so,” Shannon said with a laugh, when asked if fans will see her on “All-Stars,” adding that she has not been asked to participate in the new show.
“Dancing with the Stars” finals begin Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
