What is the Net Worth of Each Celebrity Appearing on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 27?

The full cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 27 has been revealed and the new lineup includes some athletes, actors, a singer-songwriter, as well as radio host.

John Schneider

John Schneider is best known for his role as Beauregard “Bo” Duke in the comedy series The Dukes of Hazzard, but he’s had some financial woes over the years.

In 2018, it was revealed that Schneider failed to pay more than $150,000 in owed alimony payments to his ex-wife. He admitted that he couldn’t afford the spousal support payments and was sentenced to three days behind bars. His net worth today is estimated at $200,000 so the Dancing with the Stars gig could be a decent source of income for him depending on how far he goes in the competition.

The actor is paired with Emma Slater for the season.

Nancy McKeon

For anyone who can’t remember what Nancy McKeon did after the Facts of Life and figured she may need the money, she actually has a net worth of $6 million so she wasn’t exactly hurting for cash. In fact, after the Facts of Life went off the air, McKeon continued to act.

She had roles in Can’t Hurry Love, Style & Substance, and The Division. She also played Demi Lovato’s mom on Sonny With a Chance and starred in TV movies The Wrong Woman, Comfort and Joy, and A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story to name a few.

She is paired up with Val Chmerkovskiy this season.

Evanna Lynch

Evanna Lynch is an Irish model and actress who you may recognize from the Harry Potter movies. After playing Luna Lovegood in the blockbuster film franchise, she reprised her role for the stage production of “A Very Potter Senior Year.”

Lynch has a net worth of $4 million and is partnered with Keo Motsepe this season.

Bobby Bones

In case you didn’t know Bobby Bones is an on-air radio personality who hosts the nationally syndicated program The Bobby Bones Show. He’s also a New York Times best-selling author and recently appeared on American Idol as a mentor.

Mary Lou Retton

DeMarcus Ware

Former NFL linebacker DeMarcus Ware has the most impressive net worth of all the stars on Season 27 thanks to his football career with the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos as he’s worth $35 million.

Before entering the NFL, he played his college ball Troy University. He was the 11th pick in the 2005 draft and was selected to the Pro Bowl seven times.  Now, he’ll look to join several other NFL players who have made it to the Dancing with the Stars finals.

He’s paired up with Lindsay Arnold.
