Dancing With The Stars Cast Rumors: Andi Dorfman, Janel Parrish, Antonio Sababto Jr, Sadie Robertson, And More!

Andi Dorfman

It’s Dancing with the Stars rumor time! With the new season right around the corner, the internet is abuzz over which stars will compete on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. The cast will be revealed Thurs, September 4 on Good Morning America. Until then, we have some rumors!

Unsurprisingly, Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman is rumored to be dancing. A few sources even claimed that her chosen one, Josh Murray, will compete too. That’s never been done before and ABC is normally dreadfully predictable, so I fully expect to see Josh seated in the audience only.


If you have been watching Bachelor in Paradise, you saw Clare Crawley complain to her raccoon friend about the drama. “This is why I just wanted to do Dancing with the Stars,” she sniffled before she packed her bags and left paradise. Yeah, she is delusional, but I’m 80/40 (hahaha, inside joke) that I’d rather Clare than Andi.

Also, TMZ reported that Dancing with the Stars producers are salivating over the thought of casting a super popular YouTube personality to attract a younger audience. This sounds dreadful. Shout out to my fellow Big Brother fans: how are y’all enjoying YouTube star (and social media mogul) Frankie Grande this season? Exactly. I rest my case.

According to E! News, Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish will compete. I’m sure this is bittersweet for PLL fans – and considering the buzz surrounding the finale and Janel’s character Mona, this is genius on ABC’s part.

Filling the hard bodies requirement, we have ex-UFC fighter Randy Couture, American Ninja Warrior’s Kacy Catanzaro, Olympic track star Lolo Jones, and former Calvin Klein model and General Hospital star Antonio Sabato Jr. I look forward to watching Kacy. She’s a force to be reckoned with. I just hope she’s paired with Val Chmerkovskiy or Artem Chigvintsev and not Derek Hough or Mark Ballas, my pet peeve pros.

According to Us Weekly, Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson will dance. Sadie’s mom, Korie Robertson, hinted at this possibility back in May. “Our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” she said. “Sadie I think wants to maybe be on a talk show and she wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!”

So, those are the supposed “confirmed” stars, but country singer Jessie James Decker, Kandi Burruss, and soccer player Tim Howard have been mentioned around the ‘net also. Pure speculation! If Jessie has been cast, I wouldn’t be surprised to see her paired with Derek since he’s scored a role on Nashville. Maybe they’ll show up in Nashville together?

The only “roles” which seem to be missing – you know, besides the “stars” of DWTS – are a nostalgic or feel good movie or tv star – last season gave us Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron, and Danica McKeller – and a controversial pain in the a** star, though I’ve heard Lolo‘s personality leaves a lot to be desired. We shall see!

In other Season 19 news, Sharna Burgess announced that she’s been added to the pro lineup. “Hi my loves, I can finally tell you I am the thirteenth pro on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 and I’m so excited,” she shared in a video message. “My partner’s right behind this door and and I want you to meet him – kidding! You have to tune in on September 4th to GMA. Love you all.”

Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars kicks off September 15.
