Season 23 of Dancing With The Stars premieres tonight and things are about to get serious for the 13 contestants vying for the Mirrorball Trophy. With veterans like Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke returning to the ball room, questionable newbies like Vanilla Ice and Ryan Lochte, and presumed fan favorites like Amber Rose and Laurie Hernandez, it’s going to be one hell of a season.
The week one dance styles are Cha-cha-cha, foxtrot, jive or Viennese Waltz. Sounds ominous, but we can’t wait to see what the contestants have up their sleeves, especially Ryan Lochte. Can the dude even dance?!
