Ahead of the September premiere of season 28 of Dancing With the Stars, Good Morning America revealed the celebrity cast competing on Wednesday, August 21.
The cast is extremely diverse with stars from all facets of the entertainment industry coming together to compete!
After taking a hiatus in the spring to revamp and make some changes to the format of the popular series for the upcoming season, ABC worked hard to keep the celebrity cast under wraps, and is keeping the mystery alive because this time, their pro partners weren’t announced, and the celebrity-pro pairings will not be revealed until the premiere.
The full list of celebrities competing this season includes: The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, The Bachelorette‘s Hannah Brown, supermodel Christie Brinkley, country star Lauren Alaina, Dawson’s Creek‘s James Van Der Beek, NFL legend Ray Lewis, The Office star Kate Flannery, pop star Ally Brooke, Lamar Odom, Kel Mitchell and last but not least, President Donald Trump’s former press secretary Sean Spicer.
“I had nine seasons of the most unglamorous character on TV, so we’re going in a different direction. Bring on the Spanx, bring on the spray tans, whatever you’ve got!” joked Flannery who played Meredith Palmer on the iconic series The Office.
“Can’t stop, won’t stop,” said Brown, fresh off her season of The Bachelorette. “I am so excited. I want a fresh start, something that I can go all in with, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and I think dancing is something that I can do that with.” While many Bachelor Nation stars have competed on Dancing With the Stars over the years, Brown is only the second Bachelorette ever! Trista Sutter was the first ever Bachelorette to compete all the way back in season one!
