‘Dancing With the Stars’ Wants Dr. Anthony Fauci For Next Season

According to The Daily Mail, Dr. Anthony Fauci has reportedly been approached to appear on Dancing With the Stars in a future season.

Still, Anthony seems to be uninterested. On Wednesday, sources told the outlet that producers had approached him and while the infectious disease expert was “flattered,” he said, he will not be taking part.

Of course, Anthony has become a national presence during the pandemic, due in part to the daily press conferences he took part in with President Donald Trump.

Anthony has been the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. DWTS producers reportedly felt that he has become not only well-known but well-liked as a straightforward voice of reason.

The Daily Mail reports that their approach to him was “informal,” testing the waters for a possible collaboration. But a spokesperson said that even if the pitch was in a more formal way, he would still say no.

“Dr. Fauci has not received a formal invitation from Dancing with the Stars. Dr. Fauci, while flattered, would respectfully decline,” the spokesperson said.

Hey, we can dream can’t we?!
