While I'm personally still waiting on my call to get to compete on Dancing with the Stars... the new cast for the upcoming season has been revealed and it's pretty dang GREAT.
We previously knew that former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe would be competing, but the full cast was revealed on Good Morning America this morning and there's someone for everyone to want to watch!
Other big names include Backstreet Boy AJ McLean, Tiger King star Carole Baskin, Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause and the headcoach from Cheer on Netflix, Monica Aldama!
Obviously I'm personally stoked to see AJ compete after getting to see him perform and interview him a couple times here at KIIS. And I'm suuuch a sucker for both Selling Sunset and Cheer (plus we JUST had Monica on the show!!!). Of course people are also excited to see Tiger King continue on screen in a way with Carole on Dancing.
The rest of the cast includes: former NFL player Vernon Davis, actors Jesse Metcalfe, Anne Heche, Skai Jackson, and Justina Machado,as well as The Real host Jeannie Mai, Grammy Award-winning rapper Nelly, Catfish host Nev Schulman, NBA superstar Charles Oakley and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.
As for who I think will do the best this season? I think Johnny Weir definitely has a leg up, being a former OLYMPIC athlete (and we've seen figure skaters perform verrrry well on the show before). I also think Monica has a chance at winning because of her cheer background, and obviously we know AJ McLean has a major dance background from years of touring with the Backstreet Boys.
Of course, there are always people who surprise us with how great they are, so I'm not ruling anyone out just yet! Maybe Nelly can really break it down. Maybe Nev Schulman has been practicing VERY hard in quarantine - it's hard to say. Everyone has definitely had extra time on their hands to prepare.
If you remember, the show's hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will not be returning this season, and have been replaced by Tyra Banks who will also serve as a producer on the show.
The professional partners of each of the celebrities above will not be revealed until the show's premiere on September 14th. It is unclear exactly how the show is handling COVID-19, but I'm sure they have a plan and looots of testing in place. Perhaps they'll be in a bubble similar to the NBA!
