It looks like Mario Lopez has already cast his vote for this season’s Dancing With the Stars — and he’s rooting for contestant Chaz Bono!
Since announcing his place on the competition show, Chaz —Cher’s 42-year-old son who completed a gender reassignment last year — has been subject to backlash from critics, with some even threatening to boycott the popular show.
But Extra host Mario, who competed on Season Three of the hit show, opened up to In Touch about his choice for this season’s winner, at the Bounce Sporting Club opening in NYC on September 14 — and he’s on Team Chaz!
“I’d love to see Chaz win this season,” Mario tells In Touch exclusively. “Especially with all of the drama going on, I’d love him to win.”
