dancing with the stars season 21 cast 2015

It’s almost that time of year again. The time when there’s a little chill in the air, we’re drinking pumpkin-flavored liquors and we’re watching Dancing with the Stars.

As the show goes into it’s 21st season (yes, it’s been on THAT long), we were anxiously awaiting to know who would be in on the fun. Past celebrity dancers include Alfonso Ribeiro, Brooke Burke and Rob Kardashian. Every year the celebs keep on getting better and better…

So you can imagine how excited we are to finally learn the Dancing with the Stars cast announcement! Drum roll please: Tamara Braxton, Gary Busey, Nick Carter, Paula Deen, Victor Espinoza, Andy Grammer, Hayes Grier, Bindi Irwin, Chaka Khan, Alexa PenaVega, Carlos PenaVega, Alek Skarlatos and Kim Zolciak Biermann.


Can we just talk for a minute about this list? How the heck did Paula Deen end up on it? And Bindi Irwin (yes, as in Steve Irwin’s daughter). Very random, but apparently, that’s what the show is going for this season. “In many ways with this cast, it’s going to be what I love best about live television, that unpredictable nature,” co-host Tom Bergeron said on Good Morning America.

Unpredictable is right, but it’s true that this crew is definitely going to make good television. We’re just still in a bit of shock over Deen, but we’re pretty excited about Gary Busey — how could you not be?

You can head over to Good Morning America to hear what the cast has to say, and be sure to tune into Dancing with the Stars on September 14th!

Will you tune into Dancing with the Stars this season?
