Dancing With the Stars’ new season is just around the corner, ballroom lovers, and the list of this season’s celebrity contestants keep spilling.
Although ABC hasn’t officially announced the participants for Season 23, which kicks off September 12, we are already hearing who might be vying for this year’s mirror ball trophy.
So far the rumors are a truth-challenged Olympic swimmer, a recent bachelorette, and convicted housewife, a bad girl turned talk show host, and a little person are all in talks to be on the show.
Will Ryan Lochte dance away from controversy and into the hearts of Americans? Will JoJo Fletcher risk her new love by spending all that alone time with her new dance partner? Will RHONJ convict, Teresa Giudice, be able to handle the bi-coastal responsibilities, dancing and parenting? Will Amber Rose learn how to waltz instead of twerk? And will Terra Jole, who just had a baby, be able to do the quick step?
So far the shortest person to grace DWTS was Triple Crown winner Victor Espinoza. Being a jockey, Espinoza checked in at 5’2.” Terra is only 4’2.” If the rumors are true and she’s part of the cast, Terra will be the shortest dancer in DWTS history.
ABC does not comment on casting for the show, but the official lineup will be unveiled, in full, with an announcement on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
Tell us what you think of the proposed lineup so far?
