With 23 seasons already behind it, ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” is chugging along into their 24th season and is already picking up viewers’ attention. Earlier today, ABC announced their pairings for the upcoming season. This season’s cast is a very diverse, consisting of the first former or current Major League Baseball player to a professional bull rider/model. Topping this season’s list is Olympic five-time gold medalist gymnast Simone Biles and “The Bachelor’s” Nick Viall to name a few. After Laurie Hernandez’s win last season, many fans are hoping that Simone Biles will continue the trend set by her Olympic teammate with her (and fomerly Laurie Hernandez’s) partner, Sasha Farber. But who knows what could happen this season? Until then, here is the full list of pairings:

  1. Olympic gymnast Simone Biles with Sasha Farber (Season 23 winner with Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez)
  2. Professional bull rider and model Bonner Bolton with Sharna Burgess
  3. Singer Charo with Keo Motsepe
  4. Saturday Night Live veteran Chris Kattan with Witney Carson
  5. Former Major League Baseball player David Ross with Lindsay Arnold
  6. “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne with Gleb Savchenko
  7. “Glee” actress Heather Morris with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  8. Former professional wrestler Mr. T with Kym Herjavec
  9. Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan with Artem Chigvintsev
  10. Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei with Valentin Chmerkovskiy
  11. Former NFL running back Rashad Jennings with Emma Slater
  12. Season 21 “The Bachelor” star Nick Viall with Peta Murgatroyd

No matter what the outcome will be, viewers have an exciting season ahead of them with a very diverse cast (occupation-wise) that will have to quickly learn how to excel in dancing. But, for now, DWTS fans will have to hold the winner prediction for season 24 until the season premiere later this month on March 20th at 7 p.m. CST.
