Dancing with the Stars Season 16 Cast Revealed
With season 16 of Dancing With the Stars just weeks away, 11 new cast members – including former Olympic champs Dorothy Hamill and Aly Raisman, as well as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump – were announced on Good Morning America Tuesday. There may also be a country music rivalry in the ballroom: two singers, Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler, will dance this season. Check out the full list of competitors below.
The pro pairings were also announced on the live telecast – and there are a few familiar faces missing from the list.
