As if we really needed another reason to swoon during last night’s “Bachelor,” ABC threw fans a nice little something extra during commercials by announcing the latest “Dancing With the Stars” lineup, which will premiere March 18.
But then when we heard who the cast was, it turned out to be this big fat letdown. Can we just get back to our hunky Bachelor already?
Not that I need another show to fawn over, I’m a huge fan of “DWTS.” I’m pretty sure I vow to bring more ballroom into my life after each season wraps up. It’s oddly emotional on a ton of levels, and I can’t wait for the season to kick off, even though season 16 has me yawning. Take a look for yourself. Here is the list of contestants with their professional partners:
Country singer Wynonna Judd will dance with Tony Dovolani
Actor/comedian D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke
Baltimore Ravens player Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump and new dancer Gleb Savchenko
(Are you kidding me) Andy Dick and another new dancer Sharna Burgess
Boxer Victor Ortiz (could be cute) and yet another new dancer Lindsay Arnold
Disney star Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy
Olympic gymnast (one of the Fab Five) Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Actress Ingo Rademache of “General Hospital” and Kym Johnson
“Idol” alum and country singer Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
Figure skater from a really long time ago Dorothy Hamilland Tristan MacManus
Although I’m looking forward to Wynonna, Aly Raisman and even Kellie Pickler, I’m sorry, I’m otherwise incredibly bored. Andy Dick? C’mon. And Zendaya’s, what, 13 years old? I have to tell you, however, there’s a saving grace. There’s a rumor that our hottie tottie current “Bachelor” Sean Lowe will be a surprise 13th contestant. AHHHHHHH there is hope!! This literally gets me so excited, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up! Can this be so? It’s hard to believe, since he’ll be newly engaged and eager to plan a wedding and all but— wait, that was silly. He’ll have all the time in the world.
“DWTS” premieres at 8 p.m. March 18 on ABC.
