Ginger Zee Joins “Dancing With The Stars” – Watch “GMA” Announcement Video!
Ginger Zee has officially joined “Dancing with the Stars” for the upcoming 22nd season, it was announced on “Good Morning America” on Friday. Watch below!
The announcement coincided with Zee’s return to “GMA” following the December birth of her son. The meteorologist declared, “It’s a new me!” Zee will be partnered with Val Chmerkovskiy, who won season 20 with Rumer Willis last year.
Joining her on the morning show, Chmerkovskiy said they’re already practicing “four or five” hours a day. “She has incredible potential and really wants to do well,” said the pro. “I just want to help her stay ‘Super Mommy.'”
Zee started crying later on in the segment when her own mom came out to surprise her, and her colleagues went on to show off the “Team Zee” shirts they plan to wear in the audience. This marks the first time a current “GMA” staffer will also participate on the ABC ballroom competition. To make it work, the pair will be flying back and forth between Los Angeles and New York.
Zee is the second cast member to be revealed, following Jodie Sweetin, who confirmed her participation earlier this week. The rest of the cast will be unveiled on “GMA” this Tuesday, in advance of the March 21 premiere. Check out the video below!
