Dancing With the Stars Fall 2015 Spoilers -Season 21 Bindi Irwin 1st Cast Member Announced
“Dancing With the Stars” Season 21 casting rumors are rampant – especially now that the first name has been announced. Bindi Irwin has been named as the first contestant to officially join the upcoming cast of the hit reality series, which begins airing the first show of the 21st season on September 14th.
Irwin is the 17-year-old daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, whom we have watched grow up right in front of us. The teen confirmed the announcement on “Good Morning America,” along with the tweet: “And the first celebrity on the new season of @DancingABC… Bindi Irwin! #GMADancing.” Bindi commented that “This is completely different to anything I’ve ever done in my life. I’m used to wrangling crocodiles!” Dancing sometimes is not much safer but we are excited to see who Irwin’s partner will be.
Who else has been rumored to be joining the cast? Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys fame as well as surfer and television correspondent Bethany Hamilton and gymnast/“American Ninja Warrior” star Kacy Catanzaro. Some other rumored dancers include “Pretty Little Liars” cast member Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily and Olympic short track speed skater Allison Baver. Having a PLL star would be nothing new to DWTS as Janel Parrish (Mona) was on the show and did amazing. We also have Scott Disick, ex of Kourtney Kardashian and father to her three children; Caitlyn Jenner was rumored to be joining the show, but that was shot down by her publicist. One Kaitlyn that may be appearing on the new season is former “The Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn Bristowe and the one that is most out there is Lindsay Lohan.
The announcement will be made next Wednesday, September 2nd on “Good Morning America.” We do know that in terms of judges, Len Goodman will not be returning as a full-time member but we will still have Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli. There will be guest judges helping out throughout season twenty-one where Len cannot fill in. So, who are you hoping to see on this season? Let us know!
