The celebrities competing for the Season 22 mirrorball have been announced. While, it’s not the most star-studded, I’m quite like the cast. My only gripe is that there’s three football players in the mix. Sure Doug Flutie is retired but still, do we need three? I feel one probably got called in after another male star flaked.
Speaking of men, I’m rooting for ANTM alum Nyle DiMarco and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller. Over on the women’s side, I’m torn between several names. You have former OC actress Mischa Barton, RHOA‘s Kim Fields, Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin and Donald Trump’s second wife Marla Maples all in the mix. I can’t wait for all the Trump digs with the latter. This should be good.
The professional dancers competing are also noteworthy. Artem Chiqvinstev returns from Strictly Come Dancing. Sasha Farber gets promoted again from the Troupe. Peta Murgatroyd is healthy again after skipping last season due to an injury. Lastly and certainly not least, fan favorite Edyta Sliwinska is back. She hasn’t competed since Season 10. Sadly, she’s paired up with Geraldo Rivera which likely means she won’t win.
Speaking of perennial loser. Keo Motsepe finally has a partner that has massive potential. It’ll be a shocker if he gets eliminated within the first couple of weeks again. Check out the Dancing With The Stars Season 22 couplings below and weigh in on which celebs you’re rooting for.
