in the an interview with “The Must Watch Show”, Host Noah Wilson asked Harris if she would ever consider returning to the show, but not as a host but as a contestant. Harris, who hosted the show from season 2 to season 9, said she would definitely be on the show. She also said she knows how hard it is.

“It’s so funny on Season 2 of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ my co-host Tom [Bergeron] and I both danced. I did a jive, I think he might have done a Viennese waltz. It was so much fun,” Harris recalled. “It is difficult work to be one of those celebrity contestants, but I think if the opportunity arose I would go back and get on the show as a contestant. I think it would be a fun, different experience for sure. See my old friends.”

Harris also said she believes her journey as a breast cancer survivor would also provide a unique element to the show.

“The journey I’ve been on in terms of well-being since I was the host of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ – you know, in 2014 I was caught unawares by a breast cancer diagnosis, so as a breast cancer artist and now coming into my new Getting into life, living my healthiest and healthy life and becoming a certified health coach, in addition to hosting ‘Tug of Words’, my new game show, is really something I think would be another element to get into as well the show to come,” Harris said.

Indeed, as Harris for a position with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer FoundationShe found a lump in her breast and was advised by several doctors that it was nothing, before trusting her gut and getting another opinion, which concluded she had “invasive cancer” in her body.

After undergoing a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, she was finally declared cancer-free six weeks later. People said in an interview at the time that she was “thrilled” to have survived it all.

“Once I was officially through my second phase of reconstruction surgery, which was the third surgery I’ve had this year, and I hit the six-week post-surgery mark, that’s when I got the all-clear… I’ve been delighted to get it to this point,” Harris said at the time.

If Harris were on the show, she would be in good company. Two other presenters attended the show – Erin Andrews and Brooke Burke. Granted, both competed before being named host, but still.


Harris also called hosting “Dancing With the Stars” a “dream come true.”

Speaking to The Must Watch Show, Harris said that hosting Dancing With the Stars was “so much fun” and that it really is a “dream job” that she misses “every day.”

“I miss ‘Dancing With the Stars’ every day. It was just the most magical dream job to be able to watch these candidates dance and the professional dancers and the musical performances and then be mesmerized with the dresses and the jewels down to the last detail, it was a dream come true. It was so much fun,” Harris said.

On Instagram in May 2022 Harris actually posted a throwback photo to her “Dancing With the Stars” days and called it one of the “top highlights” of her career.

“Seems like yesterday… hosting @dancingabc (#DWTS) has been one of the highlights of my TV career,” Harris wrote. “Ever since I was 12 and growing up in Minnesota, I’ve wanted to be on TV or in the movies. I’m so glad I was able to make all my dreams come true, including Broadway!”

But she added: “But life is funny. Things will be thrown at you and change your world in ways you never expected. Cancer did that for me. It allowed me to step back and understand what I really needed and valued in my future life.”

Maybe the producers and casting director should give Harris a ring for next season! What do you think, fans?

Dancing With the Stars returns to Disney Plus in 2023 for its 32nd season.
