Joey Fatone, one of the oft-forgotten members of ‘NSync, said this morning that he will be one of the celebrities on Dancing with the Stars 4. His announcement follows ABC’s refusal to confirm or deny the participation of other celebrities.
Joey called in to the Monsters in the Morning radio show on Real Radio 104.1 in Orlando, where he lives, to talk about how he’s working this morning to build a playground for kids. When the Monsters asked him what he was working on, he said he wasn’t supposed to talk about it, but “I might possibly be doing Dancing with the Stars.”
He noted that people wouldn’t exactly be tuning in to watch him, but said, “I like doing it because it’s challenging,” adding that he wasn’t looking forward to the wardrobe. “Can you imagine me wearing those stupid tuxes?”
Joey also revealed that producers have asked him to appear on the show every season, but, he said, “I’ve turned it down” those first three times. So why agree to do the fourth season? “Well, it’s kind of popular now,” he said. And, unlike some of his fellow former band members, he kind of isn’t.
