Apparently there's an Irish version of 'DWTS,' and Conor McGregor's sister just got kicked off it

You know how every once in a while you click a seemingly harmless link on the old world wide web and the next thing you know you’re confronted with an entire reality you didn’t even know was out there? Yeah, well, that just happened to me. And now it’s about to happen to you.

For instance, did you know that Ireland has its own version of “Dancing With The Stars”? Did you also know that Conor McGregor’s sister, a “fitness model” named Erin McGregor, was apparently considered enough of a star for Season 2 of the show?

And if, right about now, you’re perplexed at how being the sibling to a very famous person qualifies anyone as a “star,” you might want to note two things: 1) Season 2 of the Irish DWTS also included a former Olympic racewalker, so maybe the celebrity bar isn’t set terribly high, and 2) Rob Kardashian was on the American version of the show, so let’s not act like our bar is that much higher.

Clearly, it’s Erin’s last name that makes her noteworthy in Ireland, and being the older sister to a UFC star and worldwide phenomenon was enough to get her on a televised dancing contest. According to reports out of Ireland, she got off to a shaky start, but pulled it together enough to make it all the way to the semifinals before being kicked off this week.

According to McGregor, one of the hardest parts was dealing with all the “haters” online, so maybe there are pros and cons to being thrust into the limelight as McGregor’s big sister.

Also, the “star” who beat McGregor in the semis? Turns out it was singer Jake Carter, who also happens to be the sibling of singer Nathan Carter. So if we’ve learned anything here, it’s that a little fame in the family can go a long way.

Now we wait patiently for Dagestan to get its own version of the show, just so we can see one of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousins struggle stone-faced through an awkward tango. What a time to be alive.
