I’m back! I hope you all had a lovely summer, I have been busier than normal.
Today was a big announcement day in the Dancing with the Stars world: The season 23 cast was announced!
Unlike cast announcements in the past, it wasn’t a large production on Good Morning America. I’m not sure why, but it felt a little “off”. Here are the videos from this morning:
Here’s a nice clip from Entertainment Tonight, giving us a visual of all of the couples:
Here are the GMA tweets from this morning:
Season 23 Surprises (for me):
– The Return of Some Pros: I think these returns were the biggest surprise for me. First, it was Gleb’s return announced. It seemed like it was the next day that Maks was announced (a fantastic surprise)! Yesterday (or the day before), Derek was confirmed. And this morning, Cheryl! Oh, Allison and Emma are also back after a single-season break.
– The “Time Off” of Some Pros: I will miss seeing Tony, Keo, and Mark 😦 And Peta is very pregnant, so her absence is understandable. Kym Johnson also announced that she’s basically done with the show.
– Ryan Lochte: With making news headlines recently, I’m kind of surprised he came on the show. I have seen people comment that they are not going to watch the show because of him. I disagree with that “logic” (perhaps because I watch the show for the dancing and not the celebrities) … just don’t vote for him.
– Terra Jolé: I actually watch her show (very entertaining) and I was surprised and happy to finally see a little person on the show.
