The official Dancing with the Stars season 24 cast reveal happens on Good Morning America on March 1. However, it does not stop the rumor mill from teasing who are part of it in advance.
The reality TV dancing competition will not premiere until March 20. Yet Dancing with the Stars season 24 cast rumors flourish. Indeed, the past week has dropped the names of likely competitors.
Of course, ABC would not comment on rumors from the so-called list. Nonetheless, it is intriguing to find out it includes a bachelor. Moreover, The Bachelor is up against a former Glee star known for dancing.
Nick Viall Joins Dancing with the Stars Season 24 Cast
Nick Viall goes from one ABC reality TV show to another as he joins the Dancing with the Stars season 24 cast. It is uncertain if the current bachelor can get his groove on. It is also a mystery if he will do better than Chris Soules who came on board in season 20.
According to ET, Nick’s partner in season 24 is Peta Mergatroyd who returns after giving birth to son Shai with Maks Chmerkovskiy. Both professional dancers announced their return in the upcoming season.
Peta previously won season 22 with partner Nyle DiMarco. Can she and Nick do the same? Well, it would appear they have their work cut out for them as Heather Morris from Glee is also part of the Dancing with the Stars season 24 cast list.
Dancing with the Stars Season 24 Cast Rumors
The entry of Heather could have Vegas oddsmakers scrambling to changer their bets on who will win this season, TV Guide writes. Earlier rumors had confirmed Olympic gold Simon Biles is one of the celebrity participants. She is reportedly paired with Sasha Farber. Given the previous win of Laurie Hernandez, many likely assumed she would also win.
Yet no one can likely discount the dancing skills of Heather Morris. Her credentials include a stint as backup dancer for the Queen Bey. Moreover, she competed in So You Think You Can Dance season 2. Hence, she is one celebrity to watch out for.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne (partner is Gleb Savchenko), Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei (partner is Val Chmerkovskiy), and bull rider Bonner Bolton (partner is Sharna Burgess) are also said to be on the DWTS season 24 cast.
The list reportedly includes ex-Jacksonville Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings, comedian Chris Kattan, and former Olympic ice skater Nancy Kerrigan as well. Charo from DWTS 2010 returns and has Keo Motsepe as her partner.
