Figure Skater Mirai Nagasu Could Actually Be On 'Dancing With The Stars'!

Mirai Nagasu is officially on Dancing With The Stars‘ radar.

After expressing her want to join the reality competition series in the upcoming all-athlete season, casting director and co-executive producer Deena Katz confirms that they are looking at Mirai.

“I think she’s charming and great, and I loved her before she even said any of this – when she hit the triple axel,” Deena shared in a new interview, before Mirai apologized for her comments that rubbed some fans the wrong way.

She added, “I think she’s [Mirai is] adorable, and I’m still really making the picks on who it is, but obviously she, Adam [Rippon], Nathan [Chen], the Shibutani’s, if I could just do a season of ice skaters, that would be fantastic because I could have filled it up just with them.”

We’d love that too! But, above all, Deena is looking for athletes with a story and personality.

“You can have the best name in the world on this show and they don’t have a personality that’s going to work, then it’s not even worth having that,” she added. “The audience loves to have these people, to watch these people. The point of the show is watching these individuals get out of their comfort zones and taking this amazing journey.”
