Dancing With the Stars announces new celebrity competitors for 25th Season

ABC’s number one hit reality show, Dancing With the Stars returns for their 25th season with an all-new cast of competitors. Producers have announced thirteen fierce celebrities that will kick off the new season. Here are some of my favorites.

Remember Frankie Muniz from the FOX television show, “Malcolm in the Middle?” Yes? The now 31 year old actor will be representing Scottsdale, Arizona.

Also competing on the new season is former 80s pop star Debbie Gibson. Gibson was only 17 when her single “Foolish Beat,” made her the youngest female artist to write, produce and perform a Billboard Hot 100 number-one single in 1987. The 47 year old New Yorker hopes to revive some of those dance moves that made her a pop princess.

Another favorite is Shark Tank‘s 68yo entrepreneur Barbara Corcoran and former boy band singer Nick Lachey. Oh my gosh! Remember the 90s boy band 98 degrees that Nick was a part of? I know you do! Other dancers competing are WWE womens’ superstar Nikki Bella, as well as Drew Scott from HGTV’s The Property Brothers, among others.

The new season of Dancing With The Stars will premiere Monday, September 18 on ABC.
