‘Dancing with the Stars’ executives make no apologies for casting Chaz Bono

Do you want to see Chaz win?

The ‘Dancing with the Stars’ production team have regularly cast controversial contestants like Bristol Palin and reality mom Kate Gosselin, but no one seems to be angering fans more than Chaz Bono.

The great thing about ‘Dancing with the Stars’ executives is that they stand by their decisions, and have made absolutely no apologies for casting Chaz on the show.  Executive producer Conrad Green explains;

“We’ve always invited a really broad range of people onto the show. We’ve had people from every sort of edge of the political spectrum. We’ve had people from all types of professions within show business. We think he’s [Chaz] about as interesting a person to have on the show. He’s a remarkably strong character. I think once the show’s underway, people will either root for Chaz because of his dancing or not. I think one of the joys of our show is … you see a different side of people. You see them struggling to try and achieve something positive. You get to know them differently. We always try to make it [so] there’s someone for everybody on our cast, and people you can discover along the way.”

Are you rooting for Chaz to take the mirror ball trophy this year?  Who’s your favorite to win?  Leave us a comment and tell us who you want to see make it to the end.
