PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: DancingABC IG Drops Another Hint

I’m being told this is “totally Lauren Alaina” – which could be the friend Bobby was talking about getting on the show.

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors and Watchout: Peta is Apparently Back

I’m not even sure what to say about this one, other than “Maks better NOT be back as well” and “I hope she’s ready to actually work, instead of half-assing it like she did the last two seasons she was on.” Per Us Weekly

Welcome back! Peta Murgatroyd will officially be part of the Dancing With the Stars season 28 cast after two season off.

“I’m overwhelmed with excitement,” Murgatroyd, 33, tells Us Weekly exclusively about her return. “I’m excited and happy to be back with my family. Honestly, I just missed everybody so much! As a lot of people know, it’s such a close and tight-knit family, so I’m just happy to be back with everybody.”

Funny that she’s “overwhelmed with excitement”, when the last few interviews I’ve seen she seemed kinda blase about the show.  Whatever…discuss…

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Instagram Throws Some More Hints Our Way

I’m just gonna leave this here and let you guys speculate for now.  I’ll come back when you’ve analyzed every clue and then post the significance in the main post, cause mama’s got a 9-5 and a pile of requisitions on her desk 😉 First impressions: probably a country singer, although the “queen” clue gives me the vaguest hope that we maybe got a drag queen…;-)

PureDWTS Season 28 Rumors and Watchout: DWTS Instagram Posts…a Basketball Player??

Well, it’s been a bit since we had a basketball player hasn’t it? I’m too lazy to go look. 🙂 So far, the guesses I’ve seen include Kobe, Magic, and a few others I’ve never heard of. Oh and one funny guy who said “Iconic ball skills…must be a porn star” which I have to admit made me chuckle. Anyway, I know nothing about BBall, so ya’ll have any ideas?? I’m thinking it could be Kobe, since he’s been rumored MANY times in the past. Although this guy looks to be on the smaller side. Who knows?

ETA: And a couple sleuths on twitter, including @DWTSGossip may have this one figured out.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

PureDWTS Season 28 Rumors and Watchout: DWTS Instagram Posts Hannah Brown??

The freckle police say it’s Hannah and their evidence is compelling. The hair looks different to me, but who knows what kind of filters they’re using. Thoughts??

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Instagram Is Getting Cryptic…

So here we have the latest IG post from the @DancingABC account…and there’s a lot to unpack…

Decode the clues! 🔎 You might be a cultural genius if you can guess who this star is. #DWTS

Let’s have a look at each element…

Florida A&M Rattlesnakes pennant: there’s over 60 alums that have gone on to the NFL, so good luck figuring out which one…if that’s even what this is meant to hint at. Turns out Karamo Brown went there, too…

“It’s all fun and games until you enter the real world”: my guess is that this individual has undertaken a different career path after doing one thing earlier in life…maybe a former NFL player that is now in a different line of work? Ok, just had a memory: someone on Real World many, many years ago yelling “Dammit Karamo, now you’re pissing me off!” Totally spaced that he was on Real World: Philadelphia

29.7604 N 95.3698 W: plug this into Google Maps, and it looks like it’s Houston City Hall. Karamo’s from Houston.

Web page searching mens jackets…?: Yeah. IDK. Maybe this person has a clothing line? Someone on Twitter saying it’s Karamo from Queer Eye

Notes with “Sunday” and “YEAH”: Does this person maybe have a show on Sundays…? Is “YEAH” a catchphrase?

Letter “A” and clock at “10:15”: Anyone notice any significance?

Typewriter and glasses: Does this person wear glasses? Are they a writer?

Discuss…

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors and Watchout: DancingABC Instagram Starts Hinting at Stars

Part of me kind of hates this, because it inspires all manner of frantic (and sometimes neurotic) research – remember the great arm freckle debacle of season 20? Add to that the fact that *wince* Bones is commenting on these posts with “signed, the champ” and I’m just not about it 😛 But feel free to guess…

The new cast of #DWTS is ready to bring the fun! Don’t miss @goodmorningamerica next Wednesday when we reveal our STARS!

PureDWTS Season 28: The Full Cast Will Be Announced Aug. 21

I knew SOMETHING was happening with regards to DWTS on GMA Aug. 21, I just didn’t know what; apparently it’s the entire cast announcement, per GMA’s Twitter:

So it looks like we’re getting the entire cast two weeks earlier than expected. Hope they’ve got their ducks in a row…and if they really want to milk this, I’m expecting the DancingABC Instagram to start dropping hints soon…

Adding: Per my source, none of the pros have met their partners yet.  Unless that happens sometime in the coming week, I’d say we may be looking at a Strictly-style cast announcement: pros meet their partners for the first time on LIVE TELEVISION 😯 Guess we’ll see who has a poker face and who doesn’t…pass the popcorn 😉

Adding again: Ok, finally got some clarity from a source: ALL OF THE CELEBS and ALL OF THE PROS are being announced on GMA on Wednesday; however, the partnerships are not being announced – I’m guessing that will happen at a later date, and source thinks it might possibly happen on social media. So they really are doing this Strictly-style…I guess my hope is that this “here are all the pros and here are all the celebs” format doesn’t inspire some pros to start campaigning to get a certain celeb…I could see a pro or two whining to the producers about why they should get [insert incredibly ringer-y partner here] before the formal announcement is made.  STAND FIRM, ANDREW!!! 😯

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Reality Steve Says Hannah Brown is Definitely On This Season

Well Steve did already hint that she would probably be part of this season…and her name has been in the mix…but it appears we have confirmation from his latest post: Hannah’s gonna be on this season.

I’ve been saying for weeks in this column that I fully expect Hannah Brown to be part of the DWTS cast when it’s officially announced. Host Tom Bergeron said we should be expecting the cast announcement sometime next week. Not that it should come as any surprise, but I’m here to tell you that Hannah is absolutely gonna be on DWTS this year. That should surprise no one. She’s the most popular female contestant in the history of this franchise if we’re going off IG followers. She’s off one of the more successful seasons they’ve ever had, and lets be honest, it seems like Hannah and her personality are made for DWTS. I’m sure this will make Kaitlyn very happy that they finally cast a female lead (minus Trista who was in season 1 of DWTS). We all know how many they’ve passed over in recent seasons, that Hannah is kinda making a bit of history here. So anyway, expect her to be part of the cast when it’s announced sometime next week.

Ok, real quick, a clarification: I don’t know what exactly is going down on GMA next week.  I don’t know if it’s the pro announcement, the cast announcement, both, something else, whatever. All I know is that the pros were told that there would be some sort of DWTS-related GMA segment on Aug. 21. A lot of people seem to be assuming that it’s the cast announcement, but based on the intel I’ve received, I can’t guarantee we’re going to get confirmation next week on any of the celebs…

…all that said, I believe Steve (that should seriously be a campaign slogan). As I already said, his track record is peerless (nonsensical claims to the contrary from a reader of Cosmopolitan notwithstanding), and if he says she’s going to be on, I think it’s as good as confirmation from the show itself. And I think Hannah’s a good choice – she seems like she’s got a good head on her shoulders and likely will be a good dancer.  The question is – who are they gonna partner her with? My gut says Artem or Alan, but I think it’s equally possible that they give her to *eye roll* Val. Or do they throw a curve ball and put her with a new pro…? Thoughts?
