Jack Wagner Is Eliminated From Dancing With The Stars


Frisco Jones has left ABC once again. Back in the day Jack Wagner left General Hospital because he thought he was going to be the hottest singer in the world. Someone should have sat him down and told him to watch VH-1's One Hit Wonders and see if he changed his mind. Of course thy did not have that show back then, but still, it would have been nice. It is kind of amazing to think about one soap producing at least three acts that scored hit songs. Jack Wagner; Rick Springfield; and Ricky Martin. Am I forgetting anyone? Anyway, the fame that Jack has been trying to get back ever since he left the show is slipping once again as he was the second person eliminated from Dancing With The Stars. If you asked me yesterday I would have said he stayed for another week and Gavin DeGraw would have been gone because the voters know Jack more. Maybe they were upset about the whole Heather Locklear thing.

I would have liked to have seen him for another week as well. I'm an Anna fan though and prefer her over Karina.

He was perfectly cheesy for the show.

I don't remember Ricky Martin, but I was all over GH back in the Jack & Rick days. My BFF had SUCH a crush on Rick. I was more of a Frisco kind of girl.

GH, ahhh. That whole Luke & Laura storyline had us mesmerized.

I also remember when Kelly Ripa was on Y&R. So punk rock (ha).

Beth said...

Slightly off topic, but did you see Jaleel White kiss Kym last night? Awkward.

Henriette said...

Rick Springfield was more than a one hit wonder. He had quite a few successful albums. That was back when there was actual vinal albums.

Em- So, I happen to be flipping thru the channels and stopped on GH yesterday. Heather walked in and I was all OMG! I haven't watched GH in 20 years and for some reason I watched it yesterday. Good Times!

Aly said...

Ricky Martin was part of a pretty hot boyband for a number of years.

M-E-N-U-D-O.

Bring back Enty.

Lest we forget Michael Damian aka Danny Romalotti from the Young and The Restless. Oh! I was so in love with him. At least he knew better than to try and completely turn his back on the soap world.

He came out with the cover of "Rock On" for Dream a Little Dream. *sniff* Poor Corey Haim.

Gavin DeGraw is the man who bought us the one tree hill theme, one of my favourite songs ever. Though maybe the fact that I used to be I huge one tree hill fan makes me biased. Not that i've ever watched this show anyway.

stephani said...

I am a longtime GH fan and was rooting for Wagner to do better, but he was an unimpressive dancer, and I'm sorry to say his personality was utter cheese.

I don't know Gavin McGraw from a hole in the wall, but he seemed likable and sincere. I'm glad he's staying.

ChickenPick said...

Yes! 17 top 40 hits!!! I'm a Rick Springfield turbo fan! :-)

EmEyeKay said...

@Discoflux - SQUEEE - Danny Romalatti! Loved him, forgot all about him though. I can hardly remember what he looked like, going to google him right now.

Sis Cesspool said...

Every time I tuned is he was weeping like June Allison so I shut if off. Christ, get a grip, man.

Abby said...

John Stamos was drummer Blackie Ryan and Demi Moore was some kind of reporter(?) on GH back in the day.

SusanB said...

Jack Wagner made a record?

Mamaroni said...

He's coming back. Lol

Comma Chaser said...

Yeah, Jack Wagner had one minor hit called "All I Need," which was kind of a schmaltzy ballad. It's probably on youtube somewhere, with a high earworm factor.

Don't ask why I know this - my supermemory at work, I guess.

discoflux said...

@CommaChaser - I was hoping no one would say the name of the song so it wouldn't get stuck in my head! Now I *have* to youtube it in order to keep it from infiltrating my every thought today.

Comma Chaser said...

@disco. Hey, I'm here to help. While you are at it, check out that epic "I Knew You Were Waiting For Me" duet with Aretha and George Michael.

You're welcome. Heh heh.

discoflux said...

@Comma - You are the debbil.

RenoBlondee said...

^^ LMAO I already had All I Need running through my brain. Thanks for the duet that overtook it.
The debbil indeed.

Texshan said...

I was/am a HUGE Rick Springfield fan! Actually saw him in concert here a few months ago, and he was awesome!! The only time I watched GH was when he was on as the ultra-hot Dr. Noah Drake.

John Stamos plays the drums, as Abby mentioned, and he's played with the Beach Boys for years. He was the drummer on their last hit, "Kokomo."

pilly said...

Danny and Cricket!!! Omg

SueRH said...

He didn't get the votes because he looks like a mannequin!! Awful plastic surgery, he's disturbing to look at.

Robert said...

Like the turd that he is!

Omg I loved Michael Damian. He was on a full house episode too I think

Susan said...

OMG. I am GH lifer. I am currently on hiatus. I don't know. Robin Scorpio was getting on my nerves, and I didn't feel the need to see Jason Quartermaine stare blankly into space. And Vanessa Marcil's return stint as Brenda was completely fucked.

I just hope ABC doesn't cancel it. But, my sister, who works in the TV world, seems to think all of the soaps will get the ax sooner or later.

I'm not watching this season of DWTS. Totally thought Jack Wagner would have a huge fanbase.

Is it good this season? I've been more into Celebrity Apprentice. Lord help me. LOL.

ms snarky said...

I saw the funniest thing on TMZ tv - someone said Jack Wagner looked more like Martina Navritilova than Martina did. Haha!
His face is seriously disturbing, and that creepy permanent smile..... He looks like he's made of plastic. Yikes.

califblondy said...

Kelly Ripa was punker Hailey on AMC.

Since AMC got cancelled I've been watching B&B and Jack Wagner really sucks. I think he may have been let go. I loved him back in the day as Frisco. So sad.

I'm not watching this go-round, I'm sticking with The Voice. You know things are getting crazy when Christina Aguilera claims to be the only sober judge on the show. LOL.

JJ said...

I agree with everyone who called him plastic and disturbing to look at. I am a life long GH fan and still watch it today. I remember what a hunk Frisco used to be and it's sad to see what he did to himself.

That perma-smile is creepy and yes, he does look like a woman.

And an FYI for my fellow GHers, I hear Felicia is coming back for a short stint. I hope Frisco does not follow. Oh, and Dr. Noah Drake made an appearance too. Another plastic surgery disaster.

Jasmine said...

Am I the only one grossed out by this picture?!

WOW. Talk about body-objectification and gender role stereotypes.

G said...

It's all about recognition. Obviously since he had all that plastic surgery not enough people knew who he was.

Salsa Lover said...

@Aly - Yeah. Ricky Martin got the soap gig because of his success in Menudo - which I LOVED!!!! They were huge around the world. Grown women cried over them - my husband saw it growing up in Puerto Rico.
