“Dancing With The Stars” Season 23 Cast Portraits – PHOTOS!
The “Dancing with the Stars” cast portraits for season 23 were revealed on Tuesday. Check out the photos below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the cast for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars” was announced this morning on “Good Morning America.” Two contestants were there in person for the announcement: Olympians Ryan Lochte and Laurie Hernandez. They were joined by their respective partners, Cheryl Burke and Val Chmerkovskiy, as well as the show’s host, Tom Bergeron.
Lochte will be making a comeback of sorts on the ABC ballroom competition, trying to turn the tide of public opinion in the wake of his Rio “robbery” scandal. But it’s a comeback for his pro, too. Burke is competing for the first time since season 19, when she finished in eighth place two years ago.
Also returning are fan-favorites Derek Hough and Chmerkovskiy’s brother, Maksim. Hough is partnered with Marilu Henner, while Maks is dancing with Amber Rose (see photo above). Meanwhile, Jenna Johnson, a first-time pro after being upgraded from the “DWTS” dance troupe and serving as an All-Star on “So You Think You Can Dance,” is paired with Jake T. Austin.
Of course, no matter the pairings, everyone goes full-on glitz and glam for the series’ signature portraits. Check out the first official photos in the gallery below, and come back for updates! “Dancing with the Stars” premieres on September 12, and Gossip Cop will have full coverage.
