Great news for soaps fans and especially me. My favorite soap star, Ingo Rademacher the handsome, sexy, charismatic corporate raider Jasper "Jax" Jacks on General Hospital is going to be a contestant on 'Dancing With The Stars'. His beautiful partner will be Kym Johnson and the two of them together will really heat up the dance floor.
Following in a long line of soap stars who have danced their way into the hearts of the fans, like Kelly Monaco the first DWTS mirror trophy winner,Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, and JR Martinez who also won a trophy. Ingo can certainly win since he knows many moves from his paddle boarding on the beautiful waters of Hawaii where he resides with his wife Ehiku and his two children. Ingo appeared in an episode of 'Hawaii 5 O' last season. We can also remember the night he danced with Brenda on an empty Broadway stage to the tune "The Way You Look Tonight". Totally romantic and memorable.
