Now that the small cast of ABC’s “Skating With the Stars” is no longer a secret, the looming mystery is the identity of the professional figure skaters who’ll be involved as partners and judges.
“I can’t tell you that,” Smith laughed, when we asked about who he’s training with. On the judge’s, he was a bit more candid. “I have no idea who the judges are. All I can say is… Bieber.”
He is of course referring to Justin Bieber, and, yes, he’s joking. But it does make you wonder what pearls of wisdom Bieber could offer as a reality show judge.
On a serious note, Smith wants people to know how high the stakes are on the new series. “It’s not an environment you can go into haphazardly,” he says. “You have to be focused. You have to be aware of the dangers of it. Ice is crazy!”
Ice is crazy.
