Dancing With the Stars announced two of its celeb cast members today, and WOW, they did not disappoint! Drumroll, please…Olympic gold medalist Sunisa “Suni” Lee and multi-hyphenate entertainer JoJo Siwa will be joining the cast for the show’s 30th season! These are seriously top-tier choices—we couldn’t have asked for better. The rest of the cast member—there are 13 total!—will be announced September 8 on Good Morning America.
Dancing With the Stars doesn’t premiere on ABC until September 20, and fans have been impatiently waiting for the show to drop. Hey, we need something to watch after Bachelor in Paradise season 7 wraps up for the year, amirite or amirite?
Until then, though, we have some theories of other celebs who might round out the rest of the season 30 cast, so let’s get into it! (FYI, the below list is just rumors, to be very clear. Let us dream!)
Chris is still lying low after receiving that hefty check for leaving The Bachelor franchise following his controversial comments about Rachael Kirkconnell. That doesn’t mean he’s gone for good though—a source reportedly told RadarOnline that Chris was approached to appear on the show and he mistakenly thought it was for a hosting gig. “He was a little upset when he realized Tyra [Banks] wanted him as a contestant, but after he got over his bruised ego, Chris didn’t say no,” the source said. Take this with a giant grain of salt, but it’s an interesting rumor nonetheless.
No one else could bring life to Dancing With the Stars quite like Fran Drescher could. I mean…just imagine the costumes they’d give her! She’s allegedly at the top of producers’ cast wish list for the upcoming season, and I hope to god this pans out.
This one is…a choice, but the tabloids are convinced Hilaria is interested in hopping to DWTS, according to OK! magazine. The whole scandal surrounding Hilaria lying about being of Spanish descent is reportedly “TV gold for Tyra Banks and Dancing With the Stars. Tyra has made the show exciting again and isn’t afraid to cast controversial people on it.”
Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark
Tayshia is already booked and busy considering she’ll be hosting Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, so TBD if she’ll actually be able to appear on the show. Zac, on the other hand, expressed interest in possibly doing the show during an appearance on Cheryl Burke’s Pretty Messed Up podcast. “After AJ [McLean] explained it, how do you say no?” he said. “Ten years ago, I had a needle in my arm, and now I’m sitting here talking to you guys about all these crazy experiences. That doesn’t happen to just anyone.”
Again…a choice! Kellyanne first made headlines after being Donald Trump’s campaign manager (and for publicly feuding with her daughter, Claudia, who wishes to be emancipated). According to OK!, “Tyra and the other executives are split down the middle. Some think Kellyanne would be great; others think she is too divisive for a show that appeals to both Democrats and Republicans.”
LeAnn killed it during The Masked Singer last year, so why wouldn’t producers at ABC want her for a reality TV show of their own?
Brian Austin Green
Brian was supposed to appear on DWTS *last* season, but he had to pull out of the show unexpectedly and was then replaced by Jesse Metcalfe. He is dating DWTS pro Sharna Burgess at the moment, so he’d likely have to pair up with someone else since she’s had a hard rule about not dating her dance partners!
UFC fighters don’t only dance in the ring, y’all! Kamaru told TMZ Sports that he would be super open to joining the cast of DWTS and said, “I do my thing! That’s the thing with me, I understand that practice makes perfect and I’m disciplined enough to be able to train at it. So anything, if I need to work at it, do the moves, learn ’em, boom! I’m in there! I can get down.”
Luann de Lesseps
This Real Housewives of New York City star is often cited as one of the greatest Housewives of all time, so let’s see if she gets to bring it to the dance floor this year!
