Spoilers: Hayes Grier Will Be on Dancing With the Stars 2015 Season 21- Who Else is Joining the Cast?
It looks like Season 21 of Dancing With the Stars has another contestant who will be dancing for the Mirror Ball trophy – Vine Star, Hayes Grier.
Grier will be joining Bindi Irwin, Nick Carter and Victor Espinoza, who have already been announced as contestants on the show.
Grier made the big announcement via Twitter when he tweeted to his fans,
“Right now it’s 4 in the morning in L.A., and I was going to announce my big announcement in seven days, but I just got word that I could announce it now, so why not?” He posted a video to the Challenged app saying, “It’s going to be really cool and an amazing journey to be on season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, and I’m super excited, and I want you guys to be a big part of it and support and vote for us, and it’s going to be a great time.”
Grier is the brother of super famous, Nash Grier and became famous when he also started posting videos to Vine. At the young age of 15, he has millions of followers, close to 3 million on Twitter alone.
Hayes Grier’s brother Nash is one of the more controversial Vine Stars, posting questionable videos that have been referred to as “sexist, racist, and homophobic.” A video mocking Asian names, “How asians name their children…” was seen as racist and a YouTube video he made with friends was criticized as sexist. In the video Grier and his friends give advise to girls and what they should and shouldn’t do to gain a guys attention and if you are not the type of girl they describe, then they’ll probably ‘never be loved.’ The video criticized physical traits of girls that Grier and his friends didn’t like. The video was up for five days before it was taken down due to the heavy criticism. The video is out there still since others posted it.
It looks like Dancing With the Stars is going for the younger audience again, like they did when You Tube sensation, Bethany Mota joined the cast and danced her way to 4th place alongside professional dancer, Derek Hough.
