With the help of a super fun segment on Good Morning America, the new cast for Season 27 of Dancing With The Stars was revealed on Wednesday morning (Sep. 12).
Among the celebrity competitors are Olympic gold medalist Mary Lou Retton, Facts of Life star Nancy McKeon, Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch, Super Bowl champion DeMarcus Ware, Bachelor in Paradise standout Joe Amabile, Dukes of Hazzard actor John Schneider, and country music radio host Bobby Bones.
Bones will be competing with pro-dancer Sharna Burgess in what marks her 12th season on the ballroom dancing show. She is a three-time runner-up – so maybe this is her season to win it with Bones!
Based on a new behind-the-scenes video the show released on their YouTube channel, these two already have great chemistry! The new dance partners took part in a “Meet The Cast” video series featuring every cast member and their pro partner so America can get to know them a little better before the season kicks off on Monday, September 24.
Bones and Burgess’ video began with them perfecting their “secret” handshake and revealing what animal the other dances like.
“Well, you’re strong…and a little sexy,” Bones said while wiping his mouth and blushing, before describing her dancing as panther-like.
From her immediate giggle, it seemed that Burgess liked the compliment from her dance partner!
We can’t wait to see what these two have in store for us this season! Bones gave us a little preview into one of their rehearsals on his Instagram page.
