SALT LAKE CITY — ABC announced the cast for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars” and there’s a lot to talk about.
The new show’s cast will include “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, former NBA star Lamar Odom and, yes, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Other stars include “Dawson’s Creek” star James Van Der Beek, supermodel Christie Brinkley, former NFL star Ray Lewis, comedian Kel Mitchell (who is coming to Salt Lake City for FanX), and former “The Office” star Kate Flannery.
Several pro dancers will return for the season, as well, including Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Witney Carson, Peta Murgatroyd, Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson, Emma Slater and Cheryl Burke.
This season will have a big twist, too. The dancers won’t be partnered up until the season premiere, according to “Good Morning America.”
According to Fox News, Brinkley wasn’t necessarily an easy pick for the show. Producers reportedly begged her to join the show for 15 years.
Meanwhile, Hannah from “The Bachelorette” hopes this show will be better than her other reality show experiences.
