From ‘Bachelor’ to Hogwarts: The Cast of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 27 Revealed

The cast for Dancing With The Stars Season 27 has been revealed, and… it’s possibly the most random assortment of celebrities in the history of the show.

The pros appeared with their partners on Good Morning America on Wednesday to reveal the pairings for the upcoming season, and it’s quite the mixed bag. There’s a former football player, a Harry Potter star, an Olympic gold-winning gymnast, a comedian, an American Idol mentor… you get the idea, right?

But because this is an ABC show, there’s gotta be at least one member of Bachelor Nation to represent, right? Becca Kufrin’s cast-off Joe “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile, who also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise, got the coveted Bachelor spot, and he’ll be dancing with Jenna Johnson.

There’s also got to be at least one oldies star in the cast, and this year that honor goes to Nancy McKeon, who played Jo on The Facts of Life. Her partner is fan-favorite Val Chmerkovskiy, so we have high hopes for these two.

Disney Channel’s Milo Manheim, the youngest competitor in the group at 17, will undeniably get the tween vote, especially because he’ll be dancing with champ Witney Carson.

R&B singer Tinashe is paired with Brandon Armstrong, who’ll be dancing this season for the first time as a pro.

Notably missing from the pros lineup are Maks Chmerkovskiy, his wife Peta Murgatroyd, and Allison Holker, but otherwise, all of our longtime favorites are in!

We’re still waiting on confirmation from the network on who will be judging — will Julianne Hough be back or what?! — but stay tuned.
