PureDWTS Season 27 – And the New Troupe Member Is…

Vladislav “Vlad” Kvartin! Filling in the slot left by Brandon getting promoted to pro 🙂

Some of you might remember him as part of the cast of Maks/Val/Peta’s “Confidential” tour.  He’s also an instructor at Dance with Me in New Jersey, and appears to do some modeling on the side (bookmark that for future questions about height!) Is it just me, or do he and Artur look like they could be brothers…?

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

PureDWTS Season 27 Cast Rumors & Watchout: ET Confirms Juan Pablo Di Pace is Dancing

We done already called this one…but here’s your confirmation from ET:

The Dancing With the Stars cast is getting a little Fuller. 

Fuller House star Juan Pablo Di Pace is expected to join the cast of the show’s upcoming 27th season, multiple sources tell ET.

Dancing isn’t all that foreign to the 39-year-old actor, who had a role in 2008’s Mamma Mia! “He has moves,” a source tells ET, predicting that Di Pace will make quite the impression on judges and viewers. His Fuller House co-stars, Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin, have competed — and done well — on past seasons. “He was also a very successful opera singer before he got into acting, so he understands rhythm for sure – not to mention his Latin blood,” the source says.

He’s likely one of a few trained dancers we’ll see this season.  We previously mentioned that he had followed Cheryl…his partner, maybe?

PureDWTS Season 27: US Weekly Confirms DeMarcus Ware, Bobby Bones, John Schneider, & Danelle Umstead

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: the DWTS fandom does better research than the FBI.  I think the only one of these that we hadn’t already figured out was John Schneider – US Weekly confirms:

The ballroom awaits! Mary Lou Retton, Bobby Bones, Alexis Ren, John Schneider, DeMarcus Ware and Danelle Umstead have joined the Dancing With the Stars season 27 cast, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Bones, 38, is a radio personality best known for his self-deprecating program The Bobby Bones Show. Forbes named him “the most powerful man in country music” in 2017. He has interviewed countless musicians including Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Shania Twain.

Schneider, 58, starred as Beauregard “Bo” Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard series from 1979 to 1985. More recently, he appeared in Smallville and The Haves and the Have Nots. He is also a country singer.

Ware, 36, is a former NFL outside linebacker and defensive end. He played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2005 to 2013 before joining the Denver Broncos in 2014. He announced his retirement after the 2016 season.

Umstead, 46, is a Paralympic alpine skier. She competed at the Winter Paralympics in Vancouver in 2010, Sochi in 2014 and Pyeongchang in 2018. At the age of 13, she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic eye condition that left her blind.

Couple prediction post forthcoming. Told y’all they couldn’t do a season without athletes…
