The Cast Of The 29th Season Of “Dancing With The Stars” Has Been Announced, And Yes, Carole Baskin Is In It
Dancing With The Stars officially announced the cast of its 29th season on Good Morning America today. We already heard that tiger savior and possible husband murderer Carole Baskin and Anne Heche were going to risk breaking their bones for a check, and joining them and the rest of the cast will be Nev Schulman of MTV’s Catfish and Jesse Metcalf, the big-tittied gardener from Desperate Housewives.
The new season starts on September 14th and if the promos are any indication this cast reveal doesn’t even matter because this show is going to be all about new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks. Well, we’ve known for quite some time that much like the Borg, Tyra likes to insert herself places and take the fuck over.
Here’s the full cast list, via People:
Backstreet Boys‘ AJ McLean, Tiger King star Carole Baskin, Selling Sunset‘s Chrishell Stause, former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, former NFL player Vernon Davis, Jesse Metcalfe, Monica Aldama (head coach from Netflix’s Cheer), Anne Heche, Skai Jackson, One Day at a Time actress Justina Machado, The Real host Jeannie Mai, Grammy Award-winning rapper Nelly, Catfish host Nev Schulman, NBA superstar Charles Oakley and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.
And here’s the cast video:

I recognize 8 out of 15. That’s over 50%. That’s a good thing for DWTS, because usually, the cast list causes everyone to become a stuttering owl by WHOing at every name. Several contestants reacted to the news and seems really excited about the possibility of their Pasodoble putting them in the ER.
So excited for this new journey to begin. My competition is fierce but I’ve got my eye on that mirrorball!!! 12 more days until showtime. I’m so ready to get on the stage again and make you all proud!!!! #dwts pic.twitter.com/63N9h0yh3L

Honestly, why even bother with the competition. During the final episode, we all know that Tyra will deliver a cha-cha-cha like no other and she will be declared the winner right before they announce the name of the show is changing to Tyra-ing with the Tyras.
