Check out some of the celebrities that you will see (as well as a few unconfirmed celebrity contestants) on this season’s Dancing With The Stars 2020.
It’s undeniable that Dancing With The Stars is one of America’s biggest reality TV hits. The 29th season will premiere on September 14 at 8pm EST with new hostess Tyra Banks. While some are saying the choice of Banks is “odd,” others are praising the network’s choice to include the show’s first Black female hostess. Banks is reportedly “excited” to join the show.
Although changes have been made to the show, some things have stayed same. Fan favorites Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli are all returning as judges. Also confirmed to return to the dance show are all of the Dancing With The Stars pro dancers, except for Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson. Both Arnold and Witney are expecting their first child, so are taking some well deserved time off. So exactly who else is confirmed, or rumored, to compete for a chance to win the Mirrorball Trophy?

The first celebrity to be confirmed, according to Cosmopolitan, is Kaitlyn Bristowe. Supposedly, Bristowe has wanted to be on this show for a long time and is so happy to be a part of the show. In fact, on June 15, she and boyfriend Jason Tartick, shared a cute video showing their excitement for her nomination. Bristowe is a former Bachelorette contestant and is currently a Canadian television personality and podcast host.
The second celebrity who has been confirmed to be on the show is AJ McLean. McLean is a prior member of the ‘90s boy-band Backstreet Boys. He can’t wait to show off his moves from his boy band days! AJ has been performing publicly on stage since his early childhood, but will he be able to handle the critiques of the public? Other supposedly confirmed competitors include actress Anne Heche, actor Jesse Metcalfe, and retired NFL athlete Vernon Davis. ABC will be announcing the rest of the contestants on Wednesday, but that’s not going to stop us from speculating on who else may be on this show.
Fans are also secretly hoping to see American actor, and favorite bad boy Charlie Sheen join the cast. At 54, Sheen has been through a lot of ups and down in Hollywood, but has been trying to remedy that bad-boy profile. In 2018, Sheen shared his one-year sobriety coin with the public. Will this Hollywood heartthrob join the cast of Dancing With The Stars and be able to stay sober?
Another big celebrity that is rumored to be joining the dance competition is 66 year-old Christie Brinkley. Brinkley has enjoyed a long career in acting and modeling and still looks as good as the first day she started modeling. Brinkley is known for her marriage (and divorce) to musician Billy Joel and her multiple appearances as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and leading model for CoverGirl. Will her long model legs be able to stun fans on the dance floor?
Another ex-NFL player supposedly joining the cast is Ryan Shazier. Shazier, who is 27, used to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was forced into retirement after a serious back injury. His injury almost caused him to be paralyzed, so it will be heartwarming to see him dance.
Finally, there are two more rumored contestants who are supposedly going to dance their way to winning the Mirrorball Trophy. First is Chrishell Stause, who is 39, and a star on Netflix’s hit show Selling Sunset. Chrishell was a former daytime soap opera actress but makes her money now selling luxury real estate homes to the famous and wealthy in the L.A. area. The last, but certainly not least, person rumored to join the dance competition is controversial Big Cat Rescue CEO, Carole Baskin. At 59, Baskin has made her name from the Netflix hit series Tiger King. There is controversy over if she had anything to do with the disappearance of her second husband, Don Lewis. Lewis went missing in 1997 and was legally proclaimed dead in 2002. Baskin most likely killed her husband but will she be able to kill it on the dance floor?
That’s a lot of potential star power that may be added to the line-up of already confirmed dancers! Pay attention on Wednesday as the line-up for Dancing With The Stars 29 will be finalized and announced to the public. Don’t forget to tune into ABC on Monday, September 14 at 8pm EST to see who will be dancing their way into your heart and voting hand.
