“Dancing With The Stars” Switch-Up Pairings For Season 22 (VIDEO)
The Switch-Up pairings for season 22 of “Dancing with the Stars” were announced on Wednesday’s “Good Morning America.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, it’s become tradition for each cycle of the ABC ballroom competition to shake things up by switching dance partners for one week. Fans were able to vote online for the new pairings they’d like to see. And now the new duos will have to give it their best shot this Monday, the fifth episode of the season.
Ginger Zee, who is pulling double-duty as a contestant and “GMA” weather anchor, was there in person to find out her new pro dancer. For the next few days, instead of Val Chmerkovskiy, she’ll be paired with Mark Ballas, who showed up to surprise her. “Yes,” Zee exclaimed. “This is so good!”
But what about everyone else? Chmerkovskiy will now work with Jodie Sweetin, while her typical partner, Keo Motsepe, is paired with Kim Fields. Sasha Farber has been assigned Ballas’ partner, Paige VanZant. Antonio Brown has to dance with Karina Smirnoff, while Doug Flutie is partnered with Peta Murgatroyd.
Nyle DiMarco will spend the week with Sharna Burgess, as Von Miller dances with Lindsay Arnold. And, lastly, Wayna Morris and Witney Carson will pair up. As always, Gossip Cop will have full coverage of the live episode, including the dreaded elimination. Check out the full “GMA” announcement video below!
