This morning on Good Morning America the cast for the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars was revealed. A Star Wars classic, a Full House cutie, some Olympic flare and a Housewife are part of the cast for the upcoming season.
The cast will include:
~ Candace Cameron Bure (Full House) dancing with Mark Ballas
~ Drew Carey (The Price is Right, Drew Carey Show) dancing with Cheryl Burke
~ Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars) dancing with Emma Slater
~ Diana Nyad (Long distant swimmer) dancing with Henry Byalikov
~ Nene Leakes (Real Housewives of Atlanta, Celebrity Apprentice) dancing with Tony Dovolani
~ Cody Simpson (pop singer from Australia) dancing with Witney Carson
~ Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy
~ James Maslow (Big Time Rush), dancing with Peta Murgatroyd
~ Charlie White (Olympic gold medalist, ice dancing), dancing with Sharna Burgess
~ Meryl Davis (Olympic gold medalist, ice dancing), dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
~ Amy Purdy (US Paralympic Team Snowboarder), dancing with Derek Hough
~ Sean Avery (Former NHL player New York Rangers), dancing with Karina Smirnoff
With a cast like that, this season might be interesting to watch due to two Olympic Ice Dancer Gold Medalists, who usually compete together, will now compete against each other. Then there are the favorite dancers from the ballroom, Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas paired with some crowd favorites Candace and Drew.
There will also be an interesting twist at some point during this season in which America will vote which dancers will be swapped with a current celebrity dancer. Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman should have a good time scoring the teams this season.
