The full Dancing with the Stars 25 cast was revealed on Wednesday morning, and for the most part, the rumors were true. There are a number of long-suspected celebrities in the group, and also a few who we didn’t know were even considering entering the ballroom until this morning.
Below, you can check out our full list of Stars with their celebrity partners, with also a quick little CarterMatt outlook for all of them. We’re not going to individually spotlight the contestants this season (as we usually do), but we do think that there are some clear favorites in the mix.
Barbara Corcoran & Keo Motsepe – The Shark Tank star is a longshot, but we’re glad to see her follow in the footsteps of Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec. Technically, Mark was on the show before he was a Shark, but we still think it counts.
Debbie Gibson & Alan Bersten – It was inevitable that Debbie would eventually be on the show, given that she’s done a ton of other reality series over the years. This is Bersten’s first season as a full-time pro, and he’s got a partner who very well could be a decent dancer.
Derek Fisher & Sharna Burgess – Sharna excels with athletes, but can she coach someone who most-recently was a coach himself? We hope so, but there could be some challenges with Fisher.
Drew Scott & Emma Slater – Everyone loves the Property Brothers, and as a result of that we think that Drew should do fairly well in terms of getting votes. Emma is the reigning champion, and that absolutely helps.
Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson – One of the biggest wild-cards of the season. Frankie was at one point a top star in the TV world and he was even doing movies. This is a big comeback for him, and we feel like Witney may be someone who even grew up watching him. With nostalgia running high these days and all the Bryan Cranston/Breaking Bad fans his voting block could be monstrous.
Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold – Given his time in Hamilton / Grease: Live!, Jordan is a serious contender … even if we haven’t really heard of him before coming into this.
Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas – Stirling is a former America’s Got Talent star who became even more famous as a YouTube personality and violinist. Stirling has done some dancing in various videos, so she should be considered a real threat.
Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd – You knew that this was probably coming…
Vanessa Lachey & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – The show wasn’t going to pass up pairing married Stars against married pros. It’s the first time that this has ever happened, and we do feel like this will add to the fun.
Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev – Apparently, Artem now has bleached-blonde hair. Also, he could actually win with a partner for a change!
Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko – The former Pretty Little Liars star should have a great opportunity to win some new fans here. She should at least be safe for a few weeks.
Terrell Owns & Cheryl Burke – T.O. is one of the most notorious football players of all time. Unfortunately, we still don’t have much of an idea as to how he’s going to fare in the ballroom and with the show’s fans.
What do you think about the Dancing with the Stars 25 cast?
