Get ready, because we have another BIG ‘Dancing With The Stars’ reveal on our hands! We already know that ‘Full House’ star Jodie Sweetin will join the cast of Season 22, and as of March 2 we officially have the names of two of her other competitors: Mischa Barton and Ginger Zee! Are you excited?!
The Dancing with the Stars roaster just got a little bit fuller! While the full case of Season 22 won’t be revealed until March 8th, the show did just do us a huge solid by announcing the names of not one, but two more celebs set to join this year’s all-star lineup — get ready for Mischa Barton and Ginger Zee! Are you pumped or what?!
This is so exciting! The former O.C. star and Good Morning America meteorologist are officially set to join the cast of DWTS Season 22, Entertainment Tonight reports. Ginger, who had her first child just three months ago mind you, will be paired with Val Chmerkovskiy, while Mischa will reportedly dance with Artem Chigvintsev.
Mischa Barton & Ginger Zee On ‘DWTS’ – Officially Join The Cast Of Season 22
As previously reported, Mischa and Ginger will join Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin, who confirmed the news during her appearance on Good Morning America on March 2. “I love this, I want to do this,” said Jodi. She also reflected about that dancing episode of Fuller House when she totally got down with Val! “It really helped set things up. I always loved to dance,” she said. “Stephanie [Tanner] danced growing up — I have some experience, I have some rhythm.”
If that all weren’t exciting enough, Jodi also revealed that her partner will be Keo Motsepe — we are beyond excited to see these two! Luckily for Jodi, she has her Fuller House cast mate, Candace Cameron Bure who competed in season 18, to help give her some pointers (wink, wink).
Season 22 of DWTS will kick off on ABC later this month, but don’t expect it to be exactly like seasons past. As previously reported, both Julianne and Derek Hough will not be be returning this season, which is definitely a bummer as they are two of our favorite fixtures on the show. Julianne, who began as a dancer but became a judge last season, will be pursuing a different path this year, while it was just reported that Derek will be taking a much-needed break in order to focus on his upcoming role in Broadway’s Singing In The Rain. Len Goodman will also be returning as a judge after taking last season off to work on Strictly Come Dancing in his native England. So clearly, there’s still a lot to look forward to this season!
