New cast also includes Youtube star Bethany Mota, “Mean Girls” alum Jonathan Bennett and “Back to the Future” star Lea Thompson
A “Pretty Little Liar,” a Youtube star, an MMA fighter, a NASCAR driver and more will dance their way through ABC’s new season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
The network announced on Thursday that MMA fighter Randy Couture, racecar driver Michael Waltrip, “Pretty Little Liars” star Janel Parrish, “Duck Dynasty’s” Sadie Robertson and actor Antonio Sabato, Jr. are among the new cast members of the nineteenth season of ABC’s hit reality competition series.
Tommy Chong of famous comedy duo Cheech & Chong, “Mean Girls” alum Jonathan Bennett, “Back to the Future” star Lea Thompson and talk show host Tavis Smiley will also take part in the new season, as will Olympian Lolo Jones, Youtube sensation Bethany Mota, fashion designer Betsey Johnson, and “Fresh Prince” star Alfonso Ribeiro. Here’s hoping “the Carlton” makes a comeback.
Derek Hough, the professional dancer who’s taken home the most trophies from the show with a total of five, will be paired with Mota, the 18-year-old Youtube star who’s racked up over 7 million subscribers, perhaps an early indication that she’s expected to go far in the competition.
The season 19 cast of “Dancing With the Stars” was first revealed on “Good Morning America.” It will premiere on Monday, Sept 15.
