When it was first announced that Motley Crue singer Vince Neil would be competing on ABC’s Skating With The Stars, we were hoping that he’d be his sloppy drunk self and constantly fall on his ass. Though he didn’t fall flat on his face, he did make an ass of himself on the show’s debut last night (November 22). Neil came in last place out of the six celebrities competing on the show, scoring a 28 out of 60.
Granted, we’re not saying that we can do any better at figure skating, mainly because we would never would attempt to figure skate (ice skating in tights isn’t really our cup of tea). But Neil has gone out of his way this time to be cheesetastic. How cheesy, you ask? It makes Neil’s chicken dance look metal. Yep, that bad. But be the judge for yourself and watch his performance on Skating With The Stars above.
You’ve seen him make a fool of himself onstage, in bars and on reality TV. Now you get to see Vince Neil embarrass himself on skates. It’s been confirmed that the Motley Crue singer will be appearing on a new show called Skating With The Stars. In other words, it’s Dancing With The Stars but with figure skating (also from the same producers).
Speaking to People.com, Neil revealed that:
“I was a figure skater when I was 12. When they called the people in my office were laughing but I told them, ‘I actually used to skate. I haven’t skated for a long, long time. I like to do things that sound like fun and this sounds like fun.”
I’m not so sure about this. Watching Neil drunk and falling on the ice will be either hysterical or horrifying. Considering that there’s a blade involved, I’m going with horrifying. Yet still not as frightening as the Tommy Lee Goes To College reality show. Neil will be competing against actress Sean Young, reality star Bethenny Frankel, Olympic gold medal skier Jonny Moseley, All My Children star Rebecca Budig and Disney Channel actor Brandon Mychal Smith. The show will kick off its six episode run on November 22 on ABC. For those who really want to get a glimpse of Neil on the ice, you can view a commercial for the show below.
