“Dancing With The Stars” returns on Monday, with its vibrant share of celebrity pairs. They will be competing with each other in breathless expectation.
Here are five things, “Dancing With The Stars: Season 22 “will have for its viewers.
The First Timer
This season will mark the first-time entry of an ABC News personality as a performer in the competition. Good Morning America’s meteorologist, Ginger Zee, will travel each week from New York.
She’s a dynamic person, who gave birth to a baby just three months back. She will be partnering with former Mirror Ball Trophy winner and fan favourite Val Chmerkovskiy, says Community Digital News.
Season 22, unlike the last season, will have a return to what’s already worked. Judge Len Goodman, who was absent last season, returns to the judge’s chair again along with surprise celebrity guest judges.
Sports anchor Erin Andrews will be making her victorious comeback. She had an enormous $55 million agreement for an eerie hotel room stalking nightmare.
Edyta Sliwinska will also be back now she had taken time off to start a family.
“We’ve gotten to a format viewers think is fair,” said executive producer Rob Wade.
“They’re comfortable with it, so we don’t want to change it.”
There won’t be any major format changes in this season’s Dancing With The Stars. There will be same nights including Disney Night, Latin night, Judges Choice and the Switch Up.
The Football Season
According to Wade it is because of a chance factor. “It wasn’t planned as such. We obviously look for people with different careers,” he said.
Wade believes that these sports personalities have impeccable individualities. It’s been a ritual for footballers, who did exceptionally well on Dancing With The Stars, says TV Guide.
“We’re not afraid to rip up rule book up a bit, says Wade. And as Wade says, this season will heavily feature non-dancing content.
This would include behind-the-scenes content and “editorial pieces” full of unscripted humorous moments.
