Who else is freakin’ stoked for the new season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to kick off tonight? Well, ABC just revealed the opening number pics and we have to say, Jodie Sweetin is legit Stephanie Tanner and we love it.
Jodie Sweetin, 34, was the first star to be announced as part of season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, with partner Keo Motsepe! Right away, we knew that Jodie knew how to dance since her character on Full House (and now on Fuller House) had been one heck of a dancer — and now, it looks like she’ll be flashing back to her Tanner days for the show!
ABC just posted a ton of pics showing the cast and their partners doing their awesome opening numbers — and Jodie’s is of course in a room that looks a lot like the one Steph and DJ shared on Full House — and the one DJ’s two boys now live in on the Netflix spin-off. We knew Jodie would be taking her Tanner roots with her!
We also know that Jodie did get to dance some on the new Netflix show — Steph has quite a hot number with with Val Chmerkovskiy! “I’ve always loved to dance and Stephanie was a dancer on the show growing up,” Jodie said on GMA. “I definitely don’t call myself a professional but I have some experience. I have some rhythm so I think I’ll be okay!”
She’s also been getting tips from her TV sister, Candace Cameron Bure, who competed on DWTS season 18!
“She’s been really great and excited for me and has shared with me that this is going to be one of the most exciting, overwhelming, physically and mentally demanding things that I’ll ever do, but that it’s incredibly worth it,” she said.
Well we cannot wait for season 22. Do you think Jodie could win DWTS?
