Dancing with the Stars has been airing for well over a decade and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. ABC’s competitive dancing show pairs a professional dancer with a celebrity, and the duo performs in front of a panel of judges for the chance to win the coveted Mirrorball trophy. After 27 seasons that show has become incredibly successful and garnered a huge cult following. Because of the nature of the reality show, viewers tend to see pros come and go each season, just as they do contestants. So we’ve compiled a list of 12 former DWTS pros we wish would make a comeback!
12. Jenna Johnson
Dancer Jenna Johnson began showing off her skills on Dancing With the Stars during season 18 when she became a troupe member. She danced as part of the DWTS troupe until season 22, and then in season 23 she was promoted to a professional dancer and was paired with actor Jake T. Austin. Unfortunately for Johnson, she and Austin were the first couple to be eliminated and she subsequently returned to being a troupe member. It is very clear that Jenna is gorgeous and talented, and Dancing With the Stars could use a fresh face to brighten things up, so it would be great to see her try her hand at being a pro again. Now that she and pro dancer Valentin Chemerkovskiy are a couple again it would also add an element of competition between the adorable couple.
