Who do you think will take home the Mirrorball Trophy this year? Many fans suspect Wayne Brady will be a frontrunner for sure, but anything can happen.
As fans saw last year, upsets aren’t impossible. Hardly anyone suspected NBA superstar Iman Shumpert would win when the Season 30 cast list came out. But the underdog came out from behind and dominated the competition. Leave your own ideas in the comments!
Several familiar pro dancers return to the stage, with a few new faces too
The pro dancer cast list was leaked several weeks early. But now that Good Morning America has officially unveiled the cast, fans can look forward to several familiar faces coming back to the ballroom. But sadly, not everyone made the cut.
As DWTS fans know, anything can happen at the last minute. It was previously reported that Sasha Farber would be part of the troupe and not have a pro partner. But it seems like that has changed. DWTS alum Mark Ballas has also unexpectedly stepped back into the ballroom for the first time in several seasons.
This year’s troupe members include:
- Ezra Sosa
- Alexis Warr
- Kateryna Klishyna
Ezra Sosa was involved with Season 30 and went on to tour with runner-up JoJo Siwa. Alexis Warr is the reigning So You Think You Can Dance champion and previously toured with DWTS this past winter.
Sharna Burgess was originally on the pro list, but dropped out to dedicate more time to her baby son. Lindsay Arnold will not return as she also wishes to focus on motherhood. Season 30 runner-up Jenna Johnson is expecting her first child and will not return, but is happy to cheer on her husband Val Chmerkovskiy from home.
