The 25th anniversary season of Dancing With the Stars is shaping up to be a good one. Last week, ABC announced that Property Brothers star Drew Scott would be hitting the dance floor with Emma Slater, and now the rest of the cast has been revealed too — and the competition is going to be fierce.
DWTS announced the cast Wednesday, September 6, on Good Morning America. Get ready to see some slick moves from Total Divas’ Nikki Bella (paired with pro Artem Chigvintsev), Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran (with Keo Motsepe), former NBA player Derek Fisher (with Sharna Burgess), and former Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen (with Val Chmerkovskiy).
Also heating up the ballroom? Former NFL star Terrell Owens will be teaming up with Cheryl Burke, violinist Lindsey Stirling will dance with Mark Ballas in his grand return, singer Jordan Fisher will be stepping out with Lindsay Arnold, and Debbie Gibson will tango with Alan Bersten.
Other TV personalities who will be vying for the Mirrorball include the previously mentioned Drew Scott (with Emma Slater), actor Frankie Muniz (with Witney Carson), and Pretty Little Liars’ Sasha Pieterse (with Gleb Savchenko).
We’re probably most excited, though, about IRL couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey competing against each other with another married duo, Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovskiy. Like we said: FIERCE competition! “I’ve actually moved out of the house for the duration of the season, just to keep the peace,” the 98 Degrees singer joked, before his wife quickly dismissed that claim in order to (hopefully) prevent any misguided rumors.
We’ll have to wait and see if they’re able to still keep things friendly when Dancing With the Stars returns to ABC on Monday, September 18, at 8pm ET.
