It seems a Bachelor Nation alum competes on DWTS every season. Which stars from the franchise are rumored for the upcoming season? Keep reading for the latest speculation.

Bachelor Nation Stars Can Dance

They may not have a great track record at finding lasting love, but Bachelor Nation stars have proven themselves on the dance floor. Fresh off the success of her season as The Bachelorette, Trista Sutter competed on the first season of Dancing With The Stars but came in sixth place.

Some of the other Bachelor Nation alums to hit the dance floor include Nick Viall, Sean Lowe, Melissa Rycroft and more. Quite a few have made it to the finals and nabbed the mirrorball trophy, including Hannah Brown and Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Season 20 Bachelorette Charity Lawson was on Season 32 and came in fourth place. Which Bachelor Nation alums are rumored to be joining the upcoming Season 33 of DWTS?

Who Is Rumored For Upcoming DWTS Season

JoJo Fletcher and Peter Weber are two Bachelor Nation alums who have recently expressed interest in appearing on DWTS. However, the casting director is more likely to go with recent alums who are still heavily making headlines.

Bachelor Nation fans took to Reddit to share the latest rumors.

Joey Graziadei

Joey Graziadei’s season of The Bachelor just came to a dramatic conclusion in March. Contestant Daisy Kent self-eliminated right before the final rose ceremony because she correctly believed that Joey Graziadei was going to dump her anyway.

He proposed to Kelsey Anderson and the two are still riding high on their engagement. Joey Graziadei has said several times he would be open to competing on DWTS, though his fiance is a hard no.

While many Redditors agree that Joey is a likely candidate for Season 33, one wondered how it would affect his relationship.

“So is Joey going to stay in LA while Kelsey lives and works in new york and she flies over for some shows, or is joey going to fly back and forth most weeks.”

But another fan of the couple didn’t think there was anything to worry about. “Kelsey’s lease is up in July so she could stay in la with him and then they both move to new York together after DWTs is done kinda like what charity and dotun did.”

Gerry Turner

Another rumored name familiar to Bachelor Nation is Gerry Turner. He was the franchise’s first Golden Bachelor but his golden reputation took a hit in April. He announced that he was divorcing Theresa Nist, whom he met on the show and married just three months earlier.

Check out a few reactions to the rumor that Gerry Turner will be on DWTS:

  • I think it’ll be Joey over Gerry. If they want a Golden lead/two Bachelor alumni, wouldn’t Joan make more sense?
  • I’d rather them go with Leslie if they want GB rep if only because I’d be interested to see her on with her dancing background. Though I guess being a dancer already kinda defeats the purpose of the show, lol.

Others On The Rumored List

Gerry Turner and Joey Graziadei both aren’t likely to appear on the same DWTS season. But what other names are floating around the internet?

Retired football star Jason Kelce is someone many people would love to see on the dance competition, but can he juggle dancing and his new ESPN broadcasting gig?

Another celebrity who simply may not have time to take the dance floor is Women’s college basketball star Caitlin Clark.

DWTS almost always includes a Bravolebrity or two. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sutton Stracke is on the rumored cast list. Former ABC news anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes round out the list.

They were both fired by ABC after news of their affair broke. One Bachelor Nation fan doesn’t see the network asking them on the dance competition. “I don’t believe the TJ and Amy part I don’t believe ABC wants anything to do with them right now.”

Do you think Gerry Turner, Joey Graziadei, or another Bachelor Nation alum will join Season 33 of DWTS? Share your thoughts in the comments.

The new season will air Tuesdays this fall, though a release date has yet to be revealed. The first-ever Golden Bachelorette season will air on Wednesdays.
