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.

DWTS Season 16: Week 1 Performances

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After watching the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, I feel content with the predictions I made prior to the first telecast. Most of the celebrities performed as I thought they would with a couple notable exceptions. Both Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd impressed and entertained with their debut performances. That said, I still think they’re going to be eliminated within the first five weeks.

The stars had to dance either a cha cha cha, a foxtrot or a contemporary on the first night. With no results show until Tuesday, March 26, all of them get a second chance to impress viewers next Monday. Check out all the performances below and find out which ones were my three favorites and worst pick.

DWTS Season 16: Predicting The Final Three

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After going with an All-Stars edition, Dancing With The Stars is going back to basics for Season 16. While I enjoyed seeing returning favorites, I’m looking forward to tonight’s season premiere. While the star wattage isn’t as high as in previous seasons, I already have a few people I’m rooting for. Lisa Vanderpump, I’m talking about you.

Getting a first look at the “celebrities” with their professional partners is always exciting to watch. While I do enjoy witnessing the trainwrecks, I’m more stoked to see who comes bursting out of the gates gunning for the mirrorball trophy. Check out my predictions on how Season 16’s stars will fare.

The Early Boots

Without a doubt, Andy Dick will be one of the first to go. I just can’t see the 47-year-old comedian having any sort of rhythm. Former ABC sitcom star DL Hughley might have some dancing prowess, but don’t think he has the fan base to support him. Speaking of fans, everyone knows that country music has diehard ones. Normally I would put Wynonna Judd higher, but with Kellie Pickler also in the competition, I think Judd will suffer and be ousted early.

Also in this bunch is my favorite Lisa Vanderpump. While popular with Housewives addicts (myself included), she probably isn’t well known outside the Bravo universe. Hopefully her signature wit and sass will win over new fans quickly. Last in this list is boxer Victor Ortiz. I’m sure when it comes to demographics, there isn’t much crossover between DWTS and boxing watchers. His chances aren’t helped by being saddled with new professional, Lindsay Arnold either. I thoroughly believe, viewers also vote for their favorite pros.

My favorite part of every Dancing With The Stars season is the first episode. After weeks of buildup and buzz, we finally get to see who has the stuff to take it all the way and who’s there simply for fodder and ratings. This season that title goes to Andy Dick. I just can’t see the Newsradio star doing well. Poor Sharna Burgess. After spending several seasons in the Dance Troupe, she finally gets promoted to the big time, but saddled with Dick. LOL. With that said, the duo looks like they having lots of fun in their official promo photo.

ABC just released all the competing stars with their professional partners. This crop of wannabe hoofers doesn’t have the star wattage as previous ones, but I’m really looking forward to this season. We have new pro blood in the form of STYCYD alum Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko and the aforementioned Burgess. Based on first impressions Karina Smirnoff, Derek Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy have the best chemistry with their stars. Check out all the photos below.
