Three more stars are being added to the growing Dancing with the Stars Season 25 cast list. One of the contestants is a savvy investor on Shark Tank, another is an NBA star, and the third is a Paralympic-swimmer-turned-TV-personality for ESPN. Who’ll be hitting the dance floor this fall season of the show?
According to E! News, one of the new contenders for the Dancing with the Stars Season 25 cast is Shark Tank‘s Barbara Corcoran. Her co-star, Robert Herjavek, appeared on Season 20 and ended up marrying pro dancer Kym Johnson.
Another name dropped for the upcoming cast of Dancing with the Stars is former NBA star Derek Fisher. He played for the Los Angeles Lakers and is the ex-head coach of the New York Knicks
The third competitor revealed for the Season 25 cast is former Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen. She competed with the USA Paralympic swim team at the London Games and won a gold medal and three silver medals. She began walking in 2015 and was able to do so without needing a crutch in 2016.
Entertainment Tonight spilled in its report that Arlen will be paired up with dance pro Val Chmerkovskiy.
“Val is beyond excited about his partner this season,” said ET‘s source. “He’s completely re-energized and is feeling really optimistic about this season.”
