‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 33 Cast: When Will ABC Announce?

Within the fan community, there are quite a few names being tossed around for competitors this coming season. Some are keen to see Jesse McCartney. Having already done the Masked Singer, the early 00’s pop star has shown he’s open to reality TV and this would fit right into his wheelhouse.

Some other names that are being thrown around are the most recent Bachelors – Joey Graxiadei and Gerry Turner – as well as other reality stars, like Sutton Stracke and Parvati Shallow. 

But there is one name that keeps coming up in conversation time and time again, even amongst the DWTS pros: Tom Sandoval.

Yes, just one season after his ex Ariana Maddox came in third, there are rumors Tom may follow suit in season 33.

Former Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke discussed the casting rumor of the  Vanderpump Rules star  her podcast Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans over the summer, saying she wouldn’t be “shocked” to see someone like Sandoval in the ballroom.

However, Cheryl’s guest, Kristyn Burtt, felt quite differently. “I feel like we’re so over the Scandoval of it all,” Burtt said. “I think he’s perfect for Traitors because he’s been a villain on Vanderpump Rules for so long. But, I feel that just after Ariana [Madix] just did this particular season, we’ve moved on.”

Suppose we’ll see!

When will ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 33 air?

ABC’s popular competition show does not have an premiere date quite yet, but fans shouldn’t expect to wait longer than mid-September to bust back into the ballroom.

If it helps, fans on Reddit have shared that producers are already hard at work developing the theme nights, which will include the return of Disney night.

So, not to fear. The premiere date should be announced closer to the end of summer!

What About That David and Victoria Beckham Rumor?

Ah yes, that!

There is a theory going around the internet that Victoria and David Beckham will be joining Dancing With The Stars in season 33. Again, no official announcement has been made on casting. Still, it’s not a wild idea.

Especially because DWTS legend and judge Derek Hough stirred the pot with a post on his Instagram.

He posted a video of the Beckhams dancing together. In his caption, he went straight to the matter. “Are @davidbeckham and @victoriabeckham getting ready for @dancingwiththestars? How about a couples salsa night you two ??” he captioned the photo.

Not going to say no to that!
