“Dancing with the Stars” season 17 will have 12 contestants and rumors over who will be on the cast lineup are going crazy. The official cast of “Dancing with the Stars” will be announced live on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Wed., Sept. 4.
Who are among those expecting to appear on the show’s 2013 fall season? For one, “Survivor: Caramoan” Eddie Fox. A few days ago he tweeted a photo of himself shirtless with a caption reading, “Almost ready for dancing with the stars LOL! Now only if I could dance.”
Also rumored to be on “Dancing with the Stars” season 17 is Catherine Varitek — the wife of former Red Sox star Jason Varitek. She posted a photo of her and her hubby with the caption, “RT: If you think my husband should try out for @DancingABC .. I mean, it is for charity right? #DancingCaptain pic.twitter.com/S2K7ZCuiP1.”
All of these seem to be bold messages from possible contestants. Is all of it a ploy by ABC to throw fans off over who they think will be on the show? It happens a lot every season, but these tweets make viewers believe they’re already on the cast list for sure. Maybe they’re just “hoping” the network will choose them as contestants.
In a shocking tweet by Huffington Post’s Megan Griffo, she leaked a big spoiler over who might be on the cast lineup this fall.
She wrote, “Yogurt spokesperson is the new ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant.”
It’s believed, according to reports, that John Stamos will be a contestant.
“Dancing with the Stars” will go from airing two nights a week to one night. Elimination episodes aired on Tuesday nights, but now they’ll be announced the same night as the competition.
Who do you hope to see on the “Dancing with the Stars” season 17 official cast?
