PureDWTS DWTS Jr. Cast Rumors & Watchout: Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson & Black-ish’s Miles Brown to Dance

We already kind of figured, owing to the precious junior pros and them having absolutely no notion of subtlety, but now it’s official: per US Weekly, Alanna Thompson & Miles Brown are the first two confirmed celebs for DWTS Jr.:

Ready to dance! Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and Black-ish actor Miles Brown are preparing to compete on a Dancing With the Stars special juniors season, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

Thompson, 12, rose to fame on the TLC reality series Toddlers & Tiaras before her family landed a spinoff series titled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. She now appears on her mother June Shannon’s WEtv reality seriesMama June: From Not to Hot.   

Brown, meanwhile, is a 13-year-old actor who currently stars as Jack Johnson on the ABC sitcom Black-ish. He is also the official reporter for the Jr. NBA and played in the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in February.

I think it’s probably a foregone conclusion that Miles is paired with Rylee and being mentored by Lindsay, due to the preponderance of evidence; as for Alana – she’s pretty close in age (and height) to Artyon, and he is following her…no idea on her pro, though.

In case you were wondering if they have any dancing chops…here’s bebe Miles on AGT 8 years ago, already cutting a rug:

And here’s Alana, doing her thing at a pageant 6 years ago:

I don’t think we have to worry about stage fright from either one. 🙂
