Brooke Burke's fiance almost joined 'Dancing with the Stars' too


By John Bracchitta, 10/17/2008 

After watching the show's professional dancers develop some family-rivalry subplots over the last few seasons, Dancing with the Stars' producers had apparently been hoping to do something similar with this fall's seventh-season celebrity cast.

In addition to the husband/wife rivalry between Alec Mazo and Edyta Sliwinska, the brother/sister rivalry between Derek Hough and Julianne Hough, and the father/son rivalry between  Corky Ballas and Mark Ballas, Dancing with the Stars also asked former Baywatch star David Charvet -- the fiance of current show participant Brook Burke -- compete on this season's edition, according to Charvet.

"The show actually asked me to come on this season and compete against her," Charvet told People in a Wednesday report.

However despite the show's interest, Charvet said that he was unable to accept the offer because the competition would have conflicted with a movie he was shooting.

Chavret also thought that he may have not been able to suceed in the show after watching Burke go through her vigorous weekly practices with Derek Hough.

"I think it would have been fun," he said to People. "But when I see what [Brooke] has to go through every day, and how nerve-racking it is, I don't know if I could do it."

Burke said she would have welcomed the addition of her fiance -- whom she met on a dance floor while at a charity event in Mexico -- to the reality dance competition.

"I'd love to see him pour himself into it on the eight-hour-day commitment," she told People. "David’s got rhythm and he loves music, and I think he would do really well."

However, she added that because of the success she has had in the competition with Hough -- the two have held or tied for the highest judges' score for all five of the show's performance rounds so far this season --  Chavret's inability to join the show may have been a smart move, for him.

"At first I thought that it would be really cool, a great twist for the show," Burke joked to People. "But now, I actually think that it’s a good thing that he didn't [join the show], because he wouldn't have won this season."
