Dancing With the Stars on ABC took a longer than usual hiatus, but they are back for a Fall season and I, for one, am ready!

The show announced the celebrities this morning on Good Morning America, but did not tell us which professional dancer they would be matched with. They are  keeping that a secret until the premiere episode on September 16th.

The celeb dancers competing for the mirrorball trophy are:

  • Hannah Brown from The Bachelorette
  • Karamo Brown from Queer Eye
  • Lamar Odom former NBA basketball player
  • Sean Spicer former White House Press Secretary
  • Christie Brinkley former Supermodel
  • Lauren Alaina runner up on season 10 of American Idol and country singer
  • Ally Brooke formerly of Fifth Harmony
  • James Van Der Beek AKA Dawson from Dawson's Creek
  • Mary Wilson from The Supremes
  • Ray Lewis former NFL linebacker
  • Kate Flannery from The Office
  • Kel Mitchell from Nickelodeon's All That and Kenan & Kel

I will most definitely be rooting for Kel Mitchell!! Who loves orange soda?

Also, James Van Der Beek and Karamo Brown are my other favorites based purely on personal preference. Their dancing skills are yet to be seen!

Should be a very exciting season! Can't wait!
