Fans of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team, season 11 premiering Aug. 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, had a chance to ask as many questions as they wanted to during a half-hour video Q&A. The show’s first-ever Facebook Live chat featured long-time favorites Kelli Finglass, Judy Trammell, and veterans Amy, Jennifer, Holly, Jessica, Erica and Jenna.
Be on the lookout for more live chats this season on the official Facebook Page.
Q. Any changes to the audition process this year?
A. Kelli: There aren’t any changes to the audition process, but we do have more guest celebrity judges. We have some celebrities that actually come to rehearsal and lend us their expertise and opinions. We have Kacey Musgraves coming, and Kellie Pickler. We also have our good friend Neil McCoy, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Romo’s wife, Candace Romo.
Q. What is your favorite part of auditions?
A. Judy: For me and Kelli, it’s the solo round because that’s when we get to sit back and be entertained by the girls’ talents.
Q. If you weren’t cheerleading, what would you want to be doing?
A. Holly: I’d actually love to be in Los Angeles. I really want to pursuit a career in music videos and back-up dancing. So, who knows where I’ll be in four years?!
Kelli: And if I weren’t doing this, I’d want to co-star with Deacon on the show Nashville on CMT!
Q. Does Kitty Carter return this season?
A. Kelli: Tornado Kitty does make a little visit.
Jennifer: And maybe even more torn-adic than ever before!
Q. How do you keep your relationships healthy when you’re on the road?
A. Jennifer: I’m married, so it’s definitely challenging. To be honest, you need a partner that’s very supportive. My husband was actually the reason why I auditioned. We moved back to the area, and he was like, “I really think you should audition.” Had he not said that, I wouldn’t be here today. If you have a strong foundation, and someone is supportive, you can definitely make it work.
