Koredei’s extensive experience in dancing may give her the upper hand, so she is definitely a star to watch.
Star: Bachelor Nick Viall
Partner: Peta Murgatroyd
Nick Viall has been the gossip of television for months, but the end of this season’s Bachelor will not put an end to the unconstrained conversation he causes. Will Viall hand out a final rose to the love of his life and win a hefty paycheck from DWTS all in one year? This information is to be determined.
Star: Olympic champion Simone Biles
Partner: Sasha Farber
Simone Biles is an olympic gold medalist gymnast, but will her dancing also be gold? The athlete confessed that participating in this show would be the first time she has ever actually danced with the opposite sex, however, she believes she will be in good hands with the gifted Sasha Farber.
Star: Glee Star Heather Morris
Partner: Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Glee Star, Heather Morris, will partner up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and possibly has an unfair advantage due to her background in dancing. This star has been dancing since she was young, on ‘Glee,’ and was even a back-up dancer for Beyonce.
Star: Comedian Chris Kattan
Partner: Witney Carson
Former ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian and actor, Chris Kattan, is in the running and will partner with Witney Carson. There is no word on Kattan’s experience in dancing, but viewers are excited for his comedic relief from the competition.
Star: Chicago Cubs player David Ross
Partner: Lindsay Arnold
David Ross, former Major League Baseball player on the Chicago Cubs, will hit the ballroom instead of hitting baseballs for this season of DWTS. Though he doesn’t have history in dancing, his partner Lindsay has been partnered with athletes before and his competitive spirit might lead him to success.
Star: Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan
Partner: Artem Chigvintsev
Former Olympic figure skater, Artem Chigvintsev was known for her grace on the rink and hopefully this grace will transcend onto the DWTS stage. Her partner Artem Chigvintsev is a professional dancer and toured with the DTWS live show, so she is in good hands.
Star: NFL player Rashad Jennings
Partner: Emma Slater
Ranked as one of the best NFL safeties in 2015, Jennings is traveling from the field to the DWTS stage with professional partner Emma Slater. This former running back might not have history in dancing, but his competitive drive determination might earn him a surprising leg-up.
Star: Bull rider: Bonner Bolton
Partner: Sharna Burgess
Professional bull rider and model, Bonner Bolton, is pairing up with Sharna Burgess and it is his first rodeo with DWTS. This cowboy might not be the best dancer, but his endearing looks will keep the audience and judge enthralled.
Star: Famous flamenco guitarist Charo
Partner: Keo Motsepe
Charo might be 65-years-old, but age is not interfering with her drive to succeed on DWTS. Her partner is Keo Motsepe and we are excited for this pair’s future on the upcoming season.
This cast will start dancing the night away on Mar. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Be prepared to tune in for one of the most memorable seasons yet!
