The Bachelorette comes to its end of the season to make way for Bachelor In Paradise, but Dancing With the Stars isn’t too far off … On September 12, 2016, season 23 of DWTS kicks off with a whole new cast of celebrities in the mix on ABC. The announcement of the participating stars has not yet been announced, but rumors have already started swirling. After each Bachelor and Bachelorette season, the DWTS rumors always run wild and sometimes the reports turn out to be true. In the past, Bachelor stars Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka and Chris Soules have all competed on the Dancing With the Stars. Could JoJo be the next person from the series to join the ballroom dancers?
Recently, JoJo Fletcher was asked about the possibility of joining DWTS by Glamour and she replied:
I got a chance to go to one of the live shows last season, and I was blown away with how unbelievable that show was. I think that if the opportunity came up, I would think about it because it seems like one of the coolest, most challenging things you could do. I would definitely consider it.
Additional reality stars are rumored to be part of the cast this season and one of them is Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Several other Housewives have appeared on the show (Nene Leakes, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Kim Fields, etc.) as well. On RHONJ this season, Giudice stated that all of her business dealings tanked during her prison stay and she needs to make money for her family, so being on DWTS would be a good financial move for her. In addition, she told Reality TV World:
I love Dancing with the Stars. It’s one of my favorites. They did ask me to be on it, but I couldn’t because I was doing Housewives. I just don’t know how I’m going to do that with the four kids and going to California. But I would love to be on it.
Pitbull is another star rumored to join the show as they have publicly asked him in the past.
