‘Dancing With the Stars’ Cast Revealed for Season 29

ABC/Kelsey McNeal

Good Morning America revealed the full cast for season 29 of Dancing With the Stars.

Before today, ABC had only revealed that Kaitlyn Bristowe, former Bachelorette, and AJ McClean, Backstreet Boys member, were throwing on their dancing shoes. We have now been informed that these two will be dancing six feet apart with many other top name celebrities on September 14.

Bristowe and McClean will be joined by Chrishell Stause, a reality star from Netflix’s Selling Sunset. The rest of the cast includes Vernon Davis, Anne Heche, Skai Jackson, Johnny Weir, Nev Schulman, Nelly, Justina Machado, Jesse Metcalfe, Jeannie Mai, Monica Aldama, Charles Oakley, and Carole Baskin. This sounds like the most interesting and entertaining cast yet. The array of stars will have everyone excited for what this season holds.

Due to the novel coronavirus, the pros and stars will follow strict guidelines of quarantining and social distancing. Even if a pro is married to another pro, they must quarantine separately from one another. This is to remove the chance that if a contestant were to test positive, the pro and star will be eliminated from the competition. There will also be another huge difference, that has nothing to do with the pandemic.

Supermodel Tyra Banks will now be the show’s first solo host, as Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will no longer be on the show. She is the first black female and solo host in franchise history. In addition to being the new host, she is also an executive producer of the show. Banks promised bigger and better things for DWTS. Check out DWTS on September 14 on ABC.
