Phil Hellmuth Dancing With The Stars

Move over Bristol Palin.  The World Series of Poker bracelet record holder and self-proclaimed “poker brat” may be appearing on the next installment of Dancing With The Stars.

Hellmuth, who has auditioned for the top-rated ABC series in the past, tweeted this weekend:

OMG! Phil Hellmuth (me!) on "Dancing with the Stars!" Outrageous! Might make a fool out of myself on Worldwide Television one more time...

Hellmuth is the face of UB.com, North America’s third largest online poker site.  Rumors over the past two months have Hellmuth bailing for more money to endorse another Internet card room, though there has been no further confirmation from either Hellmuth or UB.com. 

The popular online poker site capitalized on its other star rep, Annie Duke, appearing on Celebrity Apprentice two years ago.  Much hoopla surrounded that series as Duke went at it with comedian Joan Rivers.  The two landed in the high-rated final with Rivers clawing her way to a win. 

UB.com will have two of its pros reappearing on CBS’ The Amazing Race Reunion next season:  Maria Ho (recently signed) and Tiffany Michelle.
