My friend's Mother-in-law told him that one of her soap opera magazines said that Tom Bergeron had suggested to the producers that Genie Francis and Jonathan Frakes should appear on the show. (Phew - talk about investigative journalism!).
Genie is well-known to soap opera fans as Laura Spencer, wife of Luke, in General Hospital. Jonathan is widely know to trekkies as "Number 1" - Commander Riker - in Star Trek: The Next Generation. They married in 1988 and live in Maine.
The producers had tried a married couple in Season 8 with Jewel and Ty Murray, unfortunately Jewel suffered stress fractures in both legs and had to pull out before the season started.
Genie and Jonathan would appeal to a diverse set of fans - soap opera and Star Trek (hmm, maybe there isn't such a difference!).
What do you think? Would they spice up the show?
