This morning, ABC unveiled the new cast of Dancing with the Stars 29 … and we imagine there being some mixed reactions to it. Are there a couple of big names mixed in here? Sure, but there are also some people who you have probably never heard of before. This is a product of the new way that the series is doing business, one where they try to grab people who are famous at this given second rather than necessarily longtime stars. There is a mix of both in this cast.
