https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/dwts-season-31-rumor-says-boy-meets-world-star-might-compete-likely-danielle-fishel.html

possible contestants, according to the articles:

(age and background information from Wikipedia)

Britt Baker (31) wrestler, dentist

Danielle Fishel (41) actress, director, model

Jamie Lynn Spears (31) actress, singer

Jordan Chiles (21) gymnast, Olympic silver medalist

Robert Irwin (18) Australian tv personality, zookeeper, conservationist, wildlife photographer, author

Rosanna Pansino (37) YouTuber, cookbook author, actress, classically trained singer

Spencer Boldman (30) actor

Sutton Stracke (50) businesswoman, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, ballet dancer

Not sure how legit those rumors are, but I'll comment for fun!

 

- Um, TOTALLY HERE for Danielle Fishel being rumored! :wub: She's someone who has been on my DWTS dream list for years! Sometimes I forgot to think about her for the show but yeah always wanted to see her do this show, so I'm hoping this comes true.
- Love the idea of Jordan Chiles. Although I don't ever really love the idea of having elite gymnasts on back to back seasons.
 - I do feel like I heard of Robert Irwin being speculated for some time. Definitely wouldn't be surprised seeing him doing the show. Plus he's around the same age of when Bindi did the show, so that would be fun to see.
- Jamie Lynn Spears being rumored is kinda.... yikes and not ideal, considering all of the negative family stuff regarding Britney. But I should really not be surprised about this. I would have totally been here for this about 10 or so years ago. But now, not so much.

I think Robert is likely to be a cast member. Bindi was featured in the trailer, and her brother was shown in the audience.

Based on the trailer, Reddit users wonder if singer/dancer Britney Spears (40), Disney actor/singer-songwriter/musician Joshua Bassett (21), Canadian actress/model Shay Mitchell (35), or English actor Tom Felton (34) might be joining the season.

Charli D'Amelio's kinda a surprise. Not clued up on TikTok whatsoever but know she's like, one of the biggest names to come from that platform. So it's a good get.

 

Can't say 'mom of a TikTok star' was on the wish list.. but a mother/daughter storyline is actually kinda fun.

Can you imagine Britney and Jamie Lynn doing the show on the same season, though (as is apparently "speculated")? Ouch. :haha:

I'm surprised it took them this long to get tiktok "stars" on the show.

IDF has been wanting Shay Mitchell to do the show for YEARS now, so if she is in the cast she’ll be the obvious IDF favorite. :giggle: 

 

Also would be excited for Danielle Fishel. And Jordan Chiles, but I really don’t want to see another “gymnast has a hard time coming out of their shell” storyline which we just saw last year with Suni.


If Robert Irwin is in the cast, I’m kinda surprised that both Irwin siblings will have competed on the American version instead of the Australian version. 
 

It was only a matter of time before pulled from the pool of TikTok “stars”.

 

 

None of these rumors have mentioned an Olympic figure skater which is interesting because the show’s usual go-to is casting at least one of them the season following the winter games. :haha:

Yeah I don't follow much on TikTok stars per se but I do know of Charli and she does seem kinda big/growing in fame these last few years. She's a good get being a current star with great dance ability. Definitely wasn't expecting her mother being rumored though. :haha:

I do wonder how much are they hurting to cast though that they are casting moms of social media stars as part of their cast? :dead:

IKR? :dead: 

 

I still stand by the Disney+ being a bad move in the sense of getting good stars/casting, but I would like to be wrong.

Just thinking out loud...

 

DWTS has been known to cast controversial contestants who are attempting to overcome a scandal, repair a tarnished reputation, or just show a different side of themselves. Examples include Floyd Mayweather Jr. (s5), Tom DeLay (s9), Kate Gosselin (s10), Ron Artest Jr. / Metta World Peace / Metta Sandiford-Artest (s13), Andy Dick (s16), Paula Deen (s21), Ryan Lochte (s23), Tonya Harding (s26), Sean Spicer (s28), Carole Baskin (s29), and Olivia Jade Giannulli (s30).

 

Following his slap of Chris Rock at the Academy Awards on March 27, Will Smith (53) issued a formal Instagram apology the next afternoon. He apologized on camera after keeping a low profile and taking a social media break for four months. The apologetic video uploaded to his YouTube channel on July 29 currently has over 3,600,000 views.

Smith posted Instagram content twice this past weekend and has begun appearing in public, but several of his projects remain on hold. Smith wouldn't compete this fall to help restore his image, would he?

 

New co-host Alfonso Ribeiro and Will Smith starred on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 1990 to 1996, and Tyra Banks appeared in seven 1993 episodes of the sitcom.

Yeah Will Smith would definitely not be doing the show. :dead:

 

Although if they really wanted to do and go that route, his kids Jaden or Willow could be possible. Though I haven't and couldn't really picture them doing the show.

The connection to Ribeiro and Banks is the main thing that made me think of Will Smith, but I still doubted he would do DWTS. Jaden (24, supporting act for Justin Beiber's world tour), Willow (21, releasing a new album this fall), and even Jada Pinkett Smith (50) are possibilities but don't seem likely.

 

Because there's often someone with a redemption storyline, I do wonder who might fill that spot this season. 🤔
