E! News is reporting that Tiger King star/possible murderess Carole Baskin, is in talks to join Dancing with the Stars this season, alongside Chrishell Stause, Anne Heche, and Backstreet Boy AJ McLean who are all close to being confirmed.
Sources also say that Dr Anthony Fauci was approached but turned them down. I… don’t know why…. Seems like a real career boost for him…
The only official cast member who has been confirmed so far is former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, who was asked to join the show by Chris Harrison after her episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons—Ever! aired. The full cast will be announced on Wednesday, Sept. 2 on Good Morning America. Until then, ABC won’t be confirming or commenting on any cast reports.
Season 29 is the start of a “new creative direction” for Dancing With the Stars. Tyra Banks is the the new host and new executive producer, replacing beloved former hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. Banks has promised that the season will be “so next level” while “still keeping the stuff that we know America loves.”
Other changes to the show are a result of the coronavirus, which means there will likely be no in-studio audience, and all pros will have to quarantine separately from each other, even if they’re married to each other.
