Crikey! Robert Irwin reveals the next reality TV show he’s set his sights on

We'd LOVE to see this!

After a successful stint hosting this year’s season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Julia Morris, Robert Irwin has his sights set on a new reality TV challenge.

The 20-year-old Wildlife Warrior recently revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle that he would love to compete on the US version of Dancing With The Stars following in the footsteps of his big sister Bindi Irwin, who wowed audiences and won the show in 2015.

Robert Irwin reveals he wants to join the US version of Dancing With The Stars

“I can wrangle crocs, but can I Paso Doble?” Robert joked. “It’d be really fun.”

He added that if he ever joined the show, he’d hope to be paired with professional dancer and TikTok star Rylee Arnold, who competed with fellow Aussie Harry Jowsey last season.

“I’d want to do Dancing With The Stars with Rylee because she’s awesome. That’s been the big discussion,” he remarked. “Let’s manifest doing Dancing With The Stars!

In what seems like fate, Rylee has also expressed her desire to dance with Robert in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“Robert Irwin, imagine,” she gushed to the publication. “‘Cos his sister Bindi was on the show and I remember watching his sister on the show when I was eight years old, and I was like ‘Robert’s like my age.’ I was like, ‘Please he has to be on the show at least one day for me’.”

Fingers crossed!

Would Robert Irwin ever compete in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!?

While Robert is eager to hit the DF, he has no plans to compete on I’m A Celebrity himself, despite occasionally feeling jealous of the contestants’ life-changing experiences.

“When they were doing certain trials and challenges, part of me would go, ‘I really want to get in there’,” he recalled. “But eating trials are a no-go, that will never happen. I would rather sit on the couch eating my Twisties watching everyone doing the eating trials, I’m not going in there.”

For now, let’s hope we can one day look forward to seeing Robert’s fancy footwork on Dancing With The Stars US – and perhaps a friendly dance-off with sister Bindi!
