Cue that theme music!

It's the Season 16 cast!

The new season premiers on 18 March.  I almost always tell you that I'm excited about the celebrities.  Well, that's because it's almost always true!

I'm excited about the celebrities!

I'm also pretty jazzed about our pros.  We've got our usual suspects, less one or two.  Plus we've got some very promising newcomers.

Enough chatter!  Here are our celebrities.

Aly Raisman, gold medal winning Olympic gymnast, is paired with Mark Ballas

Andy Dick, comedian and actor, is paired with Sharna Burgess

DL Hughley, comedian and actor, is paired with Cheryl Burke

Dorothy Hamill, gold medal winning Olympic figure skater, is paired with Tristan MacManus

Ingo Rademacher, actor, is paired with Kym Johnson

Jacoby Jones, Baltimore Ravens receiver, is paired with Karina Smirnoff

Kellie Pickler, singer and songwriter, is paired with Derek Hough

Lisa Vanderpump, restaurateur, is paired with Gleb Savchenko

Victor Ortiz, champion boxer, is paired with Lindsay Arnold

Wynonna Judd, Grammy winning singer and songwriter, is paired with Tony Dovolani

Zendaya Coleman, actor and singer, is paired with Val Chmerkovskiy

It's been a nice break since the end of All Star Season 15.  I'm ready for some new celebrities, some exciting new pros, and a new season of dancing!

Tune in 18 March for the premier and, as always, check in here for encores and recaps!

Cheers gang!


  1. Oh! I may actually have to watch it just to see Dorothy Hamill, Kellie Pickler and most especially, Wynonna Judd!!

    Interesting group, huh? =)

    I'll root for Wynona as she's the only one I've ever heard of. LOL

  1. Cherie says:

    A "restaurateur"?!? Really? Well, I really haven't known what to do with my Monday evenings since the show ended last season, but I think that I've been spoiled by the talent of the last two seasons. Here's to hoping that I get to be spoiled for a third. :) And thanks for keeping us up-to-date with the line-up. :)

  1. Put me on team Wynona though I have a soft spot for Dorothy Hamill

  1. I'm looking forward to this season DWTS. Should be great.

    Travis, did you fix my list of followers because I can now see the list. Thank you, but I was wondering how did you do that?

  1. A gymnast AND a figure skater in the same season?! Watch out!!
