Competing for the coveted trophy is Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse together with Gleb Savchenko. Both of Pieterse’s parents are professional dancers.
Only one of the two Property Brothers is confirmed to compete this season. The aforementioned brother is Drew Scott, who will be paired with Emma Slater. According to Entertainment Weekly, the other twin brother Jonathan Scott stated that the reason for his non-appearance on the show is his construction projects.
This upcoming season, fans will also see former NBA player Derek Fisher together with Sharna Burgess, Frankie Muniz with Witney Carson, and Jordan Fisher with Lindsay Arnold.
WWE wrestler Nikki Bella will take part on the show and will be joined by Artem Chigvintsev. Bella is the third WWE superstar to dance on the competition.

Also joining the show is Drew Lachey’s older brother, Nick Lachey. He will compete against his wife, Vanessa Lachey. On Good Morning America, the younger Lachey left a video message for his older brother telling him why he needs to beat Vanessa.
“I sure hope you beat Vanessa because if you don’t she is never going to let you hear the end of it,” Drew told Nick.
Nick will dance with Peta Murgatroyd while Vanessa will be paired with Mergatroyd’s husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
