DWTS the Athletes Season (Season 26) Cast Announcement – LIVE Blog

Time to get back into the DWTS groove…which I now consider a warm up for World of Dance starting on May 29th. 🙂 Only because I’m not sure how much I’m going to enjoy this abbreviated season. I hope it goes well. And I’m really not into the whole DWTS Junior concept. Having a real hard time with that one.

Anyway, back to season 26 and our cast announcement. I predict they will be all athletes. 😀 I also predict we will have to suffer through at least 1.25 hours of GMA before we learn anything worth learning.

Here we go – thanks to Court, since I can’t get a stream…..Oh…just got on!

Thomas!! I’ve missed you!

Stalling….stalling….stalling…..

Tom nails GMA about not knowing what they’re doing. LOL

Here we go…Going so fast that I’ll have to go back and fill in….

Kareem Abdul Jabar and Lindsay

Johnny Damon and Emma

Jamie Anderson and Artem

Chris Mazdzer and Witney

Mirai Nagasu and Alan

Joshua R. Norman and Sharna

Jennie Finch and Keo

Tonya Harding and Sasha

Adam Rippon and Jenna

Hayley and Brittany getting more screen time than the pros right now, and looking good while doing it. 🙂

Arike Ogunbowale and Gleb are the final pair – woman’s basketball player! Yay!!

Here’s a few cast photos – I’m sure Vogue will get them all later. 🙂 Read more..

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 All-Athletes Season: NFL Star Josh Norman To Dance This Season

And the leaks are coming faster now, with less than 24 hours to go until the announcement.  Looks like Josh Norman from the Washington Redskins appears to be the mysterious football player in the picture with what appears to be Sharna on the DancingABC instagram:

The lineup for Dancing With the Stars: Athletes just keeps getting better and better!

A source tells ET that NFL star Josh Norman will be vying for the mirrorball trophy during the four-week, all-athlete edition of the dance competition show.

“Josh is a total lose cannon!” the source says of the Greenwood, South Carolina, native, who stands at 6′ 0″ tall. “No one ever knows what’s going to come out of his mouth! He’s really funny and competitive and loves the camera.”

Loose cannon, eh? Not quite sure how to feel about that, but I’m trying to keep more of an open mind these days…at least he’s not Gronk *shudder*.  Can we all agree now that Cam Newton is likely NOT part of this season’s cast, and Papa Slater is just having a bit of fun trolling us? 😉

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.
