Last season's Dancing with the Stars was quite spectacular as the show celebrated its 10th anniversary (20th season). For Season 21, all the fans are wondering who the next dancers are going to be. The first contestant was already announced ahead of schedule with Bindi Irwin, and this is what we know about Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Fall 2015 Season 21 Cast and News.
According to the Seattle PI, Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars just had its first contestant announced, and it will be Bindi Irwin. Bindi is best known for being the daughter of "crocodile hunter" Steve Irwin, as well as carrying on her father's legacy with the show Bindi the Jungle Girl on Discovery Kids. She appeared on Good Morning America to share the news saying: "This is completely different than anything I've ever done in my life... I hope I'm able to inspire others to seize opportunities and make a difference."
With Bindi on board, there are reports that more of the Dancing with the Stars cast will be announced throughout the week. According to the Inquisitr, the much-anticipated celebrity cast reveal will be taking place on Good Morning America on September 2nd. By the way, Bindi does not know who her dance partner will be, but the pro-dancers confirmed by ABC for this season of DWTS are: Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Karina Smirnoff, Val Chmerkovskiy, Artem Chigvintsev, Allison Holker, Sharna Burgess, Peta Murgatroyd, and Witney Carson.
As always, there are constant rumors as to who will be putting on their dancing shoes. Some of the rumors include the shark attack survivor and Soul Surfer Bethany Hamilton, as well as Olympian Allison Baver and American Ninja Warrior Kacy Catanzaro.
There are other potentials such as actress Lindsay Lohan, which would be a very interesting addition to the mix. Then there is singer Nick Jonas, Nickelodeon star Keke Palmer, Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars, and Scott Disick from Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
While we are talking about the Kardashians, there was a huge rumor going around that Bruce Jenner, or Caitlyn Jenner, would be appearing on DWTS this season, which started a huge buzz. However, Jenner's publicist has told ABC "no thank you".
There is also rumors that The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe will be on the celebrity list. This is fitting since the last Bachelor winner Chris Soules was on Dancing with the Stars last season. If that works, then there is probably going to be a tradition that the winner of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette will appear on DWTS.
Speaking of following in another's footsteps, there is also a rumor that Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin could appear on DWTS. Considering that her co-star, Candace Cameron-Bure was a contestant, it has a sense of poetic justice to it.
Dancing with the Stars Season 21 premieres on Monday, September 14th at 8/7 on ABC, but the cast will be fully known 12 days prior.
