When the Hot Tamale Train pulls into Bones station, it’ll have two additional passengers on board.
So You Think You Can Dance’s Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp – who won the Fox competition’s ninth season last week – will be part of Bones’ upcoming dance-themed outing, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Girard will play Katarina Wirz and Wespi-Tschopp will play Rocko, hoofers somehow involved in a Dancing With the Stars-esque show at which Brennan and Booth go undercover.
The SYTYCD victors will be among friends; the reality show’s Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio will play themselves as judges in the episode, and former contestant and sometime choreographer Dmitry Chaplin will portray a pro in the show-within-a-show. (Interesting to note: This isn’t the first crossover between the two Fox properties; SYTYCD All-Star Stephen “Twitch” Boss played a battle dancer in a Season 6 episode of Bones.)
From what we hear, Girard may want to make sure her shoes are buckled tight and her sequins are secure. After all, the dance floor can be a dangerous place…
The episode will air in late November or early 2013.Follow @kimroots
