Ready to hit the dance floor?
After The Bachelor‘s Ben Higgins hands out his final rose, my Monday nights turn from wine night into “I want each and every one of their bodies” night…because Dancing With the Stars returns. Seriously, there is no better gym inspiration than watching Lindsay Arnold’s long legs glide across the stage.
Of course, an ABC reality show is only as good as its contestants. While last year brought us the bundle of joy that was Bindi Irwin and the excuse to swoon over Backstreet Boy Nick Carter again, the 2016 class of DWTS University has some potential to be huge. And since DWTS poster boy Derek Hough just announced that he won’t be competing this season, maybe someone else has a chance to bring home the Mirror Ball Trophy for once!
Time to get acquainted. Check out the 2016 cast of Dancing With the Stars and their dance partners below.
The official full cast and their pro partners will be announced on Good Morning America on March 8.
