Here’s what fans can expect from the upcoming competition season, including which Bachelor Nation stars are rumored to be competitors.
More than one Bachelor Nation star is being considered for Dancing With the Stars
Bachelor Nation should get ready because it appears that more than one star from the series of shows is being considered as a competitor this season of Dancing with the Stars.
Parade Magazine reported that former series host Chris Harrison is being considered to compete in the ballroom. Also on the show’s reported wish lists are current Bachelorette host Tayshia Adams and her fiance, Zac Clark. This comes on the heels of a series of Bachelor stars, including Season 29 winner Kaitlyn Bristowe, who have previously taken home the show’s glittery mirrorball trophy.
Other celebrities who are rumored to appear on Dancing With the Stars
Also being considered as competitors for this season of the ABC series are fitness instructor Hilaria Baldwin, former campaign manager to President Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway, and country superstar and actor LeeAnn Rimes reported Parade Magazine.
Other celebrities in the running are ex-Nanny star Fran Drescher, Real Housewives of New York City star LuAnn de Lesseps, UFC fighter Karamo Usman, and former Beverly Hills 90210 star Brian Austin Green.
When will Dancing With the Stars premiere?
Dancing With the Stars will premiere on Monday, September 20, beginning at 8/7c. It will remain in that timeslot, bumping the second season of The Bachelorette starring Michelle Young to Tuesday nights.
The show will continue to run for two hours and will wrap for the season in late November ahead of the Thanksgiving 2021 holiday, as reported by Goldderby.
Tyra Banks will return as host along with the panel of judges
