Dancing With The Stars Season 30 premiers on September 20. And fans are dying to know — who is joining the cast this year? As the air date inches closer, plenty of rumors are flying around. So who could fans see appear on the ballroom when DWTS comes back in a few months?
Dancing With The Stars Season 30 may feature a former ABC star
The blog Just Jared generally makes pretty good guesses about upcoming DWTS seasons. And according to one of the latest posts, Chris Harrison is a top contender for the cast list. Many fans already speculated this, however.
We all know that DWTS executive producer Tyra Banks loves a good controversy to draw headlines. That’s part of the reason ABC cast Carole Baskin in Season 29. Former Bachelor host Chris Harrison certainly drummed up a lot of drama over the past year after his heated interview with Rachel Lindsay.
According to Radar Online, DWTS and Chris Harrison are already in contact. A source reportedly told the publication that Chris would love to be on TV again — and he isn’t exactly getting many offers. A spot on Dancing With The Stars Season 30 may be the perfect opportunity for him to get back in the spotlight.
“After the way he left The Bachelor it has not been easy for Chris to find a new gig right away. Which is why something like Dancing With The Stars might work. It will give Chris a chance to change his narrative from the white guy who made insensitive racial remarks to reminding everyone why they fell in love Chris in the first place,” the source said.
But there are plenty of other big names on the rumored list too
Bachelor Nation fans aren’t exactly thrilled that Chris Harrison won’t return to the franchise. However, many said they would tune into DWTS this year if he appeared on the program. ABC continuously looks for big stars to compete to draw in ratings, so they’ve been casting a pretty wide net.
Just Jared also thinks that country music sensation LeAnn Rhimes may be in talks for Dancing With The Stars Season 30. No one confirmed this rumor, but ABC wants to draw a lot of star power. Getting a big name like LeAnn Rhimes would certainly help boost ratings.
Other rumored names for the upcoming season include Fran Drescher, Luann de Lesseps, and Meghan McCain, according to OK! Magazine.
However, fans shouldn’t hold their breath that Meghan McCain will be part of the upcoming cast. An insider allegedly told OK! that DWTS producers really wanted the controversial talk show hostess. However, Meghan recently left her position on The View, which made the situation a little more complicated. No one knows if a spot on DWTS is really in her future or not.
