Gene Simmons Refuses Dance Competition Offer, ‘It Wouldn’t Be Fair To The Other Contestants’

KISS bassist Gene Simmons recently shared a post on Twitter saying that he needed to turn down the offer to appear on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ since it would be unfair to the other competitors.

Dancing with the Stars‘ is a dance competition television series that has been going on since 2005. It has been one of the most popular shows in the United States since its premiere. In the show, the celebrities get paired up with a professional dancing partner each week to perform dances to eliminate the other competitors.

While ‘Dancing with the Stars’ constantly features many hit songs from the rock and metal world, it has also included many famous names from the music world like Nick Carter, Nicole Scherzinger, Kellie Pickler, and Chris Jericho. It looks like Gene Simmons was another prominent figure that the show made an offer to appear as a contestant on the dance scene.

However, the bassist revealed in a recent Twitter post that he rejected the dance competition offer. Simmons wrote that he likes and respects the show but doesn’t want to be a part of it. The reason is that the KISS bassist thinks it would be unfair to the other contestants competing against him. Then, the musician referred to the Twist contest he won back in his school days. Simmons humorously implied that no one could compete with his ancient dancing abilities.

Gene Simmons’ Twitter post read:

“Thank you, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ for the offer to be on the show. Respectfully passing. Wouldn’t be fair to the other contestants. I won the Twist contest back in the Stone Age.”
