A 23-Year-Old "DWTS" Rivalry

So far, Season 18 of “Dancing with the Stars” has been all about the friendly rivalries. At first, everyone was talking about ice-dancing partners (and Sochi gold medal winners) Charlie White and Meryl Davis. But this week, a new “DWTS” rivalry surfaced…or rather, a really old one. Of course, we’re talking about fellow ’90s child stars Danica McKellar and Candace Cameron Bure.
While the two came from different shows (Danica from “The Wonder Years” and Candace from “Full House”), it turns out they co-starred in the movie Camp Cucamonga back in 1990. And here’s the crazy part: They played dance rivals in the movie! In it, Candace’s character struggles with some dance moves, and Danica’s character steps in and basically steals her part. DRAMA.
Check out this 10-minute clip of the movie. The danciest parts happen at 0:38 and 3:38, but we recommend watching the whole clip because: 1. ’90s fashion is hilarious 2. ’90s acting is hilarious 3. Steve Urkel (aka Jaleel White) raps and 4. Jennifer Aniston plays a camp counselor. Enjoy!
