There is exciting news in the pipeline for fans of the popular reality show Rokdim Im Kokhavim (Dancing with Stars).

Reshet, one of the two concessionaires running Channel 2, has just announced that Canadian actress Pamela Anderson will be a guest judge for a number of episodes in the upcoming season.

Anderson, 43, is best known for her role on the American TV series Baywatch, as well as her appearances in Playboy magazine.

Based on a popular British reality TV series Strictly Come Dancing, Rokdim Im Kokhavim began airing in 2005 and has gained momentum among viewers ever since. It features celebrities partnered with professional dancers for weekly ballroom dancing competitions. The judges and viewers then vote off the weakest pairs.

While Anderson will be a judge in her upcoming guest appearances, she competed as a contestant in the American version of the show, Dancing with the Stars, last May. She was voted off in the fifth round, but America’s loss is Israel’s gain; the former celebrity participant now has some firsthand expertise as she judges Israeli contestants.

Anderson will not be the only person generating news for the sixth season of Rokdim Im Kokhavim.

There are rumors that news reporter Gili Shem-Tov will be the first gay dancer on the series. She is to dance with a female partner.
