As in previous seasons, a lot of speculation surrounded which stars would appear on season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars”, and that was put to rest as the cast was revealed on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, March 4. The celebrity cast, which runs the gamut from champion athletes to television and movie stars, includes:
Bille Dee Williams
Candace Cameron Bure
The last two to be revealed, Charlie White and Meryl Davis, not only are both Olympic gold medalists in ice skating, they’ve also been partners on the ice since they were kids. Able to dance together remarkably on ice, it will be interesting to see how they translate that to ballroom dancing with a new partner squiring them around on the dance floor.
Long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad made news last year when she finally realized her dream of swimming from Cuba to Florida, completing the ordeal at the age of 64. Nyad, the first person to complete the swim without benefit of a shark cage, will be facing sharks of a different type when season 18 of DWTS commences on Monday, March 17, 2014 on ABC.
