Pregnant Man Says Chaz Bono Ruined His Chances On ‘Dancing With The Stars’
Thomas Beatie, better known as “The Pregnant Man,” claims he should have been chosen to compete on Dancing with the Stars this season but says Chaz Bono stole his spotlight.
Beatie tells TMZ that he reached out to casting a few months ago, hoping to land a spot but never got a call back. Beatie says he realized after DWTS announced that Chaz would be on the show that this was the reason he got rejected. In his mind, they filled their transgender quota.
Thomas says he understands why producers wouldn’t cast two famous transgender people on the show but he’s still pretty bummed out, saying, “I wanted to try my new body out. I’m an athlete and I know I would have excelled.”
