If you go to the 15:00 minute mark in this People video, you can see some interviews with the new cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 24.
Cameron Mathison talked to Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews about the new season. See what she says below.
The 38-year-old TV personality also broke down who she thinks has a chance at taking home the coveted mirror ball trophy. “You’ve got the gymnast [Simone Biles], you’ve got the figure skater [Nancy Kerrigan],” she dished. “And you’ve got Heather [Morris] who, I mean, she did ‘Single Ladies’ [music video] with Beyonce! So, those are ringers.”
Andrews added, “And then I feel like anybody who is with [DWTS pro] Val [Chmerkovskiy] is a ringer.”

The sports reporter is also excited for the athletes hitting the dance floor this season. “We’ve got a football player [Calvin Johnson Jr.] — which I’m so pumped about — and we finally have a baseball player [David Ross]!”
As for who she’s sure to fangirl over, Andrews gushed, “I’m gonna geek out over [Mr. T]. That’ll be great.”
Cub’s David Ross wasn’t sure up until a few days ago whether he’d do Dancing With The Stars, but, then he decided to do something outside the box again like he’s been doing all year. More below from Spokesman.com. Rehearsal photo below too on his first lesson of the day (he has the perfect partner, doesn’t he?!).
“I still wasn’t sure up until a few days ago that I really wanted to do it,” he told the Associated Press in a phone interview, “because it’s something that makes me extremely nervous and uncomfortable. But I’ve done some things outside my box this year and I’ve had such a phenomenal year.”
“The love that I’ve received from my teammates and the fans of Chicago is just, all that put into one, I convinced myself to give it a try,” Ross said.
NL Most Valuable Player Kris Bryant is rooting for “Grandpa Rossy” – that’s the nickname the younger Cubs playfully gave him last year.
“I don’t know if he’s worked out all offseason,” a grinning Bryant said. “He looks the same to me, though. Obviously, he was showing his age here towards the end of the year here. But hopefully there is enough Tylenol or whatever to get him going.”
Yesterday, we had some interviews released from Access Hollywood (that you can watch in previous posts), but, here is a summation of them all and a few more mixed in.

David Ross’ phone has been ringing off the hook. To see why, read below as well as some thoughts from his new partner Lindsay Arnold.
“A lot of contenders this season,” Arnold tells PEOPLE. “I think all of the girls are really strong, all the girl celebrities are going to be really good. But I will say, the guys have so much personality and fun, and that’s sometimes what wins the show — the personality.
“So it’s so hard to tell right now,” she adds. “I think after week one you’ll start seeing the real contenders come out.”
“My phone’s been blowing up in my pocket, so I’m excited to see those guys and see what they think,” adds Ross.
One thing is for sure, Arnold is eager to step onto the dance floor with someone who is all too familiar with being a champion.
“It’s insane,” she says of Ross’ winning career. “Not only that, but he’s the first baseball player to ever be on the show, which is a pretty cool feat. I’m really excited that I get to be with him and we get to make the MLB debut on DWTS.”
But it’s Ross who is in awe of the pro dancer.
“I’ve never done any ballroom dancing in my life, so I’m leaning on her,” he admits. “She’s a professional and I’m letting her take the reins.”
