Pregnant Man

Chaz Bono Hurt My Chances

For 'Dancing with the Stars'

The Pregnant Man -- Thomas Beatie -- claims he SHOULD HAVE been chosen to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" this season ... but says, "Chaz Bono stole my thunder."

Beatie tells TMZ ... he reached out to casting in the hopes of landing a spot a few months ago -- but never got a call back. But after DWTS announced that Chaz would be on the show, Thomas says he thinks he knows why he was rejected -- the transgender quota had already been filled.

Thomas says he understands why producers wouldn't cast two famous transgender people on the show -- but he's still pretty bummed out ... telling us, "I wanted to try my new body out. I’m an athlete and I know I would have excelled."

There's always next season ...

Chaz Bono needs to loose about 100lbs. That is the real transformation that needs to take place. Hopefully DWTS will help him in that goal.

Chaz is more of a "star", but Thomas would have been the better choice for dancing. Big people can move, but Chaz is to the point where it starts to look awkward. And next to a skinny chick dancing around him? It'll look odd.

I wouldnt call him famous. He was a human interest story. An "oddity" of sorts. Not a celebrity...... His head seems to be getting as big as his belly once was....

#1 Thomas is not a 'star'.
#2 Thomas is not a man...legally only. Thomas was born a female and is still a female from the waist down...the reason 'he' was able to give birth.
