"Salty" Joe Hachem Turned Down Dancing with the Stars

As many of our faithful site readers may have figured out over the past few weeks, Shannon Elizabeth is on this season's Dancing with the Stars.

However, what you may NOT have known is that 2005 WSOP of Poker Main Shannon_elizabeth_naked_dancing_witEvent champ "Salty" Joe Hachem was invited to be on the popular show but turned it down.

In a recent 2+2 forum post, 2004 WSOP Main Event champ Greg Raymer wrote:

"...Joe Hachem was previously invited to be on the show, but declined, because he would have had to stay in the U.S. for the entire 2-3 month period of the show."

Well, if DWtS had some sort of "poker player quota" they were looking to fill this year, well done in getting Dancing with the Stars' Shannon Elizabeth to do so. We like Hachem and all, but Shannon legs can keep a grown man up at night. Dudes used to go to war over gams like that (gams at right).
