Sean Spicer Did Not Make the Athletes Edition of Dancing with the Stars, But Tonya Harding Did

After teasing with news of various cast additions along the way, including Tonya Harding and Adam Rippon, Dancing with the Stars has finally revealed the full cast for Season 26—all of whom are athletes. Yet another humiliation for Sean Spicer.


Variety reports:

The dancers-in-training were revealed on “Good Morning America” Friday morning. Previously announced cast members were Olympians Adam Rippon, Jamie Anderson, Jennie Finch, and Tonya Harding.

Rounding out the list of 10 athletes are Josh Norman, Arike Ogunbowale, Chris Mazdzer, Johnny Damon, Mirai Nagasu, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Lindsay Arnold is returning to defend her title after winning last season with musician Jordan Fisher. The professional dancers joining her are Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Jenna Johnson, Gleb Savchenko, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Alan Bersten, and Sasha Farber.

Tonya Harding’s redemption narrative continues apace. The new season premieres April 30, but you can get a taste of all the personalities with the Good Morning America introductions above. They are truly killing it, considering that morning TV time is way too early for being charismatic while dancing to jock jams, bathed in flashing neon.

It will come down to Adam and Mirai, I hope they can share a disco ball.
