Could “Dancing with the Stars” be Alicia Machado’s next move?
Former Miss Universe and Donald Trump critic turned up in current realities show’s audience on Monday night, leading insiders to wonder if she’s thinking of joining “DWTS” for a future season.
Viewers saw Machado twice on camera as a smiling audience member in the “DWTS” ballroom– watching curvy talk depict hostess Amber Rose and later, race car driver James Hinchcliffe.
And former “DWTS” competitor and TV personality Maria Menounos spilled the beans, posting a photo of her and Machado at the taping on Instagram — with specific comments, “Found this beauty tonight #aliciamachado #dwts. “
The surprise audience appearance might signal that the ex-beauty queen, who lately became a controversial figure in the presidential campaign when Hillary Clinton brought her up during the debate, could continue her fame.
Machado, who has accused Trump of calling her “Miss Piggy” after she put on weight, wore a black strappy dress and looking like she couldn’t be happier enjoying the ABC show.
In fact, she tweeted out some official “DWTS” items about the dances on her Twitter feed after the prove, which was a tribute to Cirque du Soleil.

Amusingly, given her alleged difficulty after she packed on pounds as Miss Universe, Machado was spotted clapping for Rose, a curvy beauty who lately spoke out about feeling “body shamed” on “DWTS.”
But the biggest topic now is, will Machado continue her 15 minutes of notoriety by dedicating ballroom dance a try next season?
“Often, ‘DWT’S producers approach people in the news to see if they would like to compete on the showand if they are controversial, it’s even better, like Ryan Lochte this season, ” an insider noted. “Many times, the celebrities check it out by being an audience member first and seeing if it might be something they’ll wishes to do.”
