We just learned the identities of the celebrities who will be competing on the new season of Dancing With The Stars, and now it’s time to find out who they will be paired up with. Is your favorite pro dancer returning? Details inside!
We just revealed the list of celebrities competing on season 16 of Dancing With The Stars, but what about the pro dancers? Well, for starters, the rumors about Maksim Chmerkovskiy not returning were true, as he was not named this morning. There were also rumors that Chelsie Hightower was out this season, and sadly, those also proved true. You will also notice a few new pro dancers joining the cast season.
Here is the list of couples:
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani
Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Andy Dick and new pro dancer, Sharna Burgess
D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke
Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus
Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson
Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
Lisa Vanderpump and new pro dancer, Gleb Savchenko
Victor Ortiz and new pro dancer, Lindsay Arnold (also competed last season on So You Think You Can Dance)
Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy
Now, normally they cast 12 couples, so we are wondering if we will get a surprise on the season premiere? We know that Sean Lowe, the current Bachelor has been on the leaked list for weeks now, yet he was not announced this morning. Perhaps they are waiting for the finale of The Bachelor to air first? It would definitely make sense as there are more ladies than men this season.
