John Schneider, Mary Lou Retton Announced In ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 27


The full cast list is finally here! Season 27 of Dancing with the Stars is due to premiere Monday, September 24th at 8/7c on ABC and fans are getting just as hyped about it as the stars themselves. A slew of familiar names have popped up on the cast list, one of them being former Facts of Life star, Nancy McKeon.

You’ll most likely recognize some of the other faces and names on the cast list, too. Some of them include John Schneider of Dukes of Hazzard, radio host Bobby Bones, and gymnast Mary Lou Retton. Here is the full cast list below!


John Schneider and Emma Slater

John Schneider, former star of Dukes of Hazzard, is teamed up with Property Brother’s star Drew Scott’s previous partner, Emma Slater. Maybe they’ll dance to one of Schneider’s country songs!

Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber

American gymnast Mary Lou Retton is paired up with Sasha Farber for this season. Retton might be a force to be reckoned with as she has scored two perfect 10 scores in 1984, making her the first American woman to win a gold medal in gymnastics.


Danelle Umstead and Artem Chigvinstev

Danelle Umstead was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a disease that ultimately leads to blindness. According to ABC’s website, Danelle “has no central vision and is losing her peripheral vision”. Her story is incredibly inspiring and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table with partner Artem Chigvinstev.

Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess

Nashville radio host Bobby Bones is teamed up with Sharna Burgess for this season of DWTS. Looks like the pair has already been up to something

Alexis Ren and Alan Bertsen

Alexis is a well-known model and social media star who has 13 million followers on Instagram alone. Alan was paired with Debbie Gibson on Season 25 of DWTS, so he’ll surely show Alexis a thing or two!

DeMarcus Ware and Lindsay Arnold

DeMarcus is a former Dallas Cowboys linebacker and Super Bowl champion. Will he also be able to conquer the dance floor with partner Lindsay Arnold?
