Dancing With The Stars Cast Portraits Season 22 2016


The cast for season 22 of “Dancing with the Stars” was revealed on Tuesday, and now Gossip Cop has the official portraits for all the pairs! Check out the photos below!

With 12 couples set to take the ballroom by storm later this month, Gossip Cop has some interesting observations about this season’s stars and pros. While reigning champ Derek Hough won’t be competing, past winners such as Witney Carson, Karina Smirnoff, and Val Chmerkovskiy will once again be on the dance floor. There’s also a big return with Edyta Śliwińska coming back as a partner after skipping the last 11 seasons.

Jodie Sweetin will become the second “Full House” star to put on dancing shoes, following in the footsteps of Candace Cameron Bure. Antonio Brown is seeking the Mirror Ball trophy just like fellow Pittsburgh Steelers player Hines Ward successfully did in 2011. And there’s actually not one, not two, but three football players this time around, with Doug Flutie and Von Miller also taking on the quickstep.

For Geraldo Rivera, this is his first reality competition since losing “Celebrity Apprentice” last year. Kim Fields is also on a reality kick right now, having recently joined “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” “America’s Next Top Model” winner Nyle DiMarco will be the second deaf contestant to salsa after Marlee Matlin paved the way in 2008.

And Gossip Cop expects extra eyes to be on Marla Maples, given that her former husband Donald Trump (Rivera’s “Apprentice” boss!) is currently running for president. Check out all the cast portraits below! And be sure to stick with Gossip Cop for full coverage of the season premiere on March 21!
