Is Pauly D too big for ‘Dancing With the Stars'?

First, “Jersey Shore” cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino tried to dance his way to the mirror ball trophy on the 11th season of “Dancing With the Stars.”

Then “The Situation’s” housemate Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was rumored to be joining the latest season of the ABC dance show. So why would their "Shore" roommate Pauly D say he’s too good for "DWTS"?

During a recent interview with a New York television show, Pauly D, who is on tour with Britney Spears, says he doesn’t think he’ll be fist-pumping on the “Dancing With the Stars” dance floor anytime soon. He says, “I will do ‘Dancing With the Stars’ when my career dips.”

Over the 12 seasons of “DWTS,” the dance floor has attracted some big name stars – Kim Kardashian, Kirstie Alley, Donny and Marie Osmond, just to name a few. I don’t think Pauly D meant he was bigger than these stars, but what do you think? Is Pauly D too big to dance for the mirror ball trophy?

Who do you think should be on the new season of “Dancing With the Stars”? Post below and watch our big debate on this, tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!
