And while some outcry (or maybe just pot-stirring) has already surfaced over the idea of one of the pro dancers from ABC's family-friendly juggernaut stripping down (and we mean all the way down) to pose for the cover and an inside spread of Playboy, well, we call hypocrisy!
After all, it's not like the network has exactly been shy about mining past centerfolds as contestants—after all, Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Monaco, Lisa Rinna and Joanna Krupa have all donned their birthday suits in the nudie mag.
Plus, if anyone's got the body for a photo shoot like this, it's a "Dancing With the Stars" hottie. But which pro is baring all?
