14 Celebrities Rumored to Compete on Dancing with the Stars Season 33

Dancing with the Stars season 33 might still be a few months away, but rumors about the identities of the celebrities who will be taking to the ballroom next season are already starting to come in via the rumor mill!

The official cast for next season is expected to be announced in early September via Good Morning America, but a number of celebrities are already starting to enter the conversation as potential candidates. As in past years, there are names in the mix that are both surprising and ones that make complete sense for ABC’s long-running series.

From reality stars and athletes to household names and stars whose names have been caught in the headlines, ABC seems to be looking to cast a wide net for the next season of Dancing with the Stars, which could result in quite an interesting season 33 cast!

Needless to say, there is no shortage of celebrities whose names are being tossed around as contenders for the next season. At least one rumored contestant has spoken out about turning down an invitation to do the show and there are likely to be others who will decline as well.

As we dive into the rumored stars on the Dancing with the Stars casting team’s radar, let’s remember that these are just rumors and the cast will not be official until ABC confirms it later this year!

Caitlin Clark

Caitlin Clark has taken the basketball world by storm this year, so it’s not surprising that ABC has attempted to cast Clark on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Unfortunately, it seems the WNBA star has turned down the show’s offer and will not be taking to the ballroom this fall.

Joey Graziadei

Joey Graziadei stole fans’ hearts on The Bachelor and is praised as one of the best leads the show has ever had. It’s of no surprise that fans are hoping he might return to ABC as part of the Dancing with the Stars season 33 cast, and it seems ABC has its eye on him as well. Joey Graziadei has expressed interest in competing, saying, “I mean, it seems like a really fun opportunity… it’s something I’m open to.”

Gerry Turner

It seems Joey Graziadei might not be the only Bachelor ABC has its eye on. Rumor has it ABC might also be looking to cast The Golden Bachelor lead Gerry Turner for the next season of the show. This rumor seems to be connected to an interaction between Turner and the Dancing with the Stars Instagram account, with Turner expressing enthusiasm about the idea.

Joan Vassos

Interestingly, there are also rumors that ABC might be considering casting The Golden Bachelorette Joan Vassos on the show. However, it seems unlikely Joan would compete on the show while her season of The Golden Bachelorette will be airing at the same time.

Jennifer Lopez’s Exes

According to The Daily Mail, ABC is rumored to be interested in Jennifer Lopez’s exes Cris Judd and Casper Smart. However, it’s hard to see ABC pursuing the non-famous exes of Lopez just because of her relationship with Ben Affleck becoming a headline point.

Shohei Ohtani

Baseball player Shohei Ohtani is said to be on the ABC casting team’s radar after headlines revealed his interpreter had stolen a reported $17 million to pay off gambling debts. ABC has a history of going after stars in headlines, but the baseball season running into early fall could complicate this potential casting.

Sutton Stracke

According to rumors from The Sun, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sutton Stracke could be the next Bravo star to appear on Dancing with the Stars. An anonymous source hinted that Sutton has joined the cast, citing her popularity and quirky personality.

Gypsy Rose

Among the names rumored for Dancing with the Stars season 33 is Gypsy Rose. Following her release from prison, Rose has been making waves, and it seems Dancing with the Stars could be a part of her future. Given the show’s tendency to chase individuals who make headlines, casting Rose could get fans talking.

Jason Kelce

After retiring from the NFL last season, Jason Kelce is on the radar of at least one professional dancer on the cast! Pro Jenna Johnson expressed a desire to see Kelce on the show, noting he’d be “the perfect thing.” Dancing with the Stars has a long history of casting NFL players, and Kelce would definitely be a big get for the show.

Amy Robach and TJ Holmes

The Sun hinted that former Good Morning America cohosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes could be in the mix for the next season. However, ABC, the company that let them go following their scandal, rejected the pair last season when they expressed a desire to appear on the show. It seems unlikely ABC would cast them now.

Parvati Shallow

Speaking of The Sun, the outlet reports that ABC might be looking to cast a former Survivor star with Parvati Shallow rumored to be in the mix. If ABC does go after someone from The Traitors, many would prefer they go for someone like Queen Phaedra Parks.

Tom Sandoval

Former Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke has brought rumors that Tom Sandoval could join the cast following his ex, Ariana Madix. However, Sandoval’s involvement in the upcoming third season of The Traitors could prevent him from appearing on Dancing with the Stars.

While these are some of the names rumored to be in the mix for Dancing with the Stars season 33, we’ll have to wait until ABC makes an official announcement to see who will actually take to the dance floor in the next season.
