Dancing with the Stars Season 23 Cast Includes Some Headline-Grabbing Celebs
Ryan Lochte, Amber Rose, Laurie Hernandez, and more buzzy figures round out the lineup.
ABC has announced the cast for Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars, and it might just be the buzziest group of celeb dancers the show has ever assembled.
Hot off of his Olympic-sized scandal, Ryan Lochte has officially signed on for the latest season of DWTS. "I’m never one to dwell on the past," Ryan told Good Morning America's Amy Robach while discussing his DWTS casting Tuesday morning. "Everyone has got to be sick and tired about hearing about this. I just want to move forward."
Ryan's fellow Olympian Laurie Hernandez will also be a part of the new DWTS lineup after taking home one gold and one silver medal in women's gymnastics events in Rio. The addition of the fierce and always-outspoken Amber Rose should also make for an entertaining season.
You'll find everyone from music stars (Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Vanilla Ice) to TV icons (Maureen McCormick and Marilu Henner) and politicians (former Texas Governor and onetime presidential hopeful Rick Perry) competing for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy when DWTS returns for Season 23.
