The new reality show ''Dancing with the stars'' started with a great interest on the part of the Greek television viewers hitting the top 30,4%. In the jury takes part the infamous Yannis Latsios who recently divorced with the start hostess of the morning shows Eleni Meganaki. And while Eleni Meganaki is on a holiday at the beaches of Thailand, her ex husband Yannis Latsios presented himself with a new image – people say he is one of the most strict judges in the jury. The competitors in the show will also be judged by the prima of the Latin dances Galena Velikova who has her own dance school in Athens and was awarded the prize for the most stylish woman in Bulgaria.

Of course the show is hosted by the woman who is the dream of at least half of the men in Greece – the blond diva with eyes of a cat Zeta Makripoulia. Besides Yannis Latsios and Galena Velikova the stars who will be dancing each Sunday from 21:00 on the Greek television Antena will be judged also by two more members of the jury – the musicologist Alexis Kostalas and the director Fokas Evangelinos.

The couples which compete in “Dancing stars” are 12. In each couple there is one celebrity and one professional dancer. In the show are taking part television star and actors, as well as athletes and even one lady member of the parliament.

Among the competitors is the television hostess Evgenia Manolidou who became popular with the scandals in the show “The hour of truth”. She already stated that “she is practicing from morning to evening and she is so tired that she cannot put her legs together”. The blond beauty has graduated conductorship and composition in New York, however she started her career in the television with a bang from a show in which the participants were passing through the lie detector, while the hostess was asking them uncomfortable questions. Currently Mrs. Manolidou is part of the vivid jury of the reality show “Greece you have talent”.

The atmosphere of the show for the dances is tense because of the announced opposition between Evgenia Manolidou and her warm-blooded competitor Matildi Mangira. The forecasts for the “Dancing stars” are saying that in this season the TV track will turn into a stage for female wrestling!

The Olympic champion in triple jump Pigi Devedzi will also give it a try on the dance scene. It is also interesting the participation of Fotini Pipili, a member of the parliament from New Democracy who was criticized right away by her colleagues for her appearance in the show in such a critical moment for the country. To the claims that her act is thoughtless and irresponsible, Mrs. Pipili answered with dignity. In the show are also taking part the kick-boxing champion Maihalis Zampidis and the ex top model Viki Kulianou, the champion in short jump Erika Prezerakou and some young actors.

After it charmed the viewers in 30 countries the show for stars-candidate-dancers in Greece will be held with the aim of gathering funds for the foundation “Make a wish!” which makes the wishes of children at the age between 3 and 18 years old who suffer from serious diseases come true.
