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…
