Former Dancing with the Stars 5 favorites and current loves Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas will return to the show for its finale at the end of the month, and for the first time, they’ll perform a full routine.
“”What I’m hearing is that they want us to do a whole dance, whether it be paso doble or cha cha,” Mark tells TV Guide. He says he’s looking forward to it, because “I want to come back to avenge her” elimination.
While ABC has not confirmed that the eliminated couples will dance a full routine during the finale, TV Guide says that would be a first for the series. “In each of the past four seasons, all of the couples have been asked back to do a short turn on the dance floor during the finale, normally not more than about 10 seconds,” the magazine reports.
Meanwhile, Mark and Sabrina have “both signed on to do the third national Dancing tour.” Sabrina will join fellow season five celebrities Wayne Newton and Marie Osmond; also touring are Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, Monique Coleman, and a number of professional dancers from the series. The tour starts Dec. 18 in Seattle and ends Feb. 10, after visiting 35 cities.
