DWTS SEASON 24 CAST: INITIAL THOUGHTS

I usually rank them, but I'm just too excited about everyone of them to rank them!!!!
  1. Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy
    Heather Morris is trained in basically everything but ballroom, and was on SYTYCD. I would be genuinely surprised if she wasn't good. I felt like Maks's season with Amber was a bit of a let down (and I always loved Maks on past season, so that was a bummer). I hope this is a good match, and I would be surprised if they didn't end up in the finals.
  2. Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater
    I AM SO EXCITED FOR EMMA THIS SEASON!!! She finally has a partner who is over the age of 18 and under the age of 65. I really would love to see her skills this season, and that's definitely a possibility with football's reputation on this show. From looking at Rashad's Instagram, he seems to be a likable guy. I really hope to see them have some fun, and dance well.
  3. Chris Kattan and Witney Carson
    I really love this matchup. I feel like even when Witney has a weaker dancer, she is really able to bring out their personality. I see the two of them being really fun. I'll have to wait to see him dance first to see if I think he'll make it far. But I feel like their first dance will be a really fun cha cha and I can't wait!
  4. David Ross and Lindsay Arnold
    Alright, David Ross is the first baseball player on the show, so this should be interesting. I'm real excited he's partnered with Lindsay because I think her past seasons prove how good of a teacher is. Plus he's got some popularity going on because he just retired from the Cubs right after their World Series win.
  5. Charo and Keo Motsepe
    OK GUYS ITS CHARO!!! I really think she's going to be fun to watch, but I don't know how long I see her sticking around (I mean...Keo's partners have a reputation of being eliminated extremely early). However, I know all their routines will be entertaining.
  6. Simone Biles and Sasha Farber
    Okay I have to admit that I think Simone Biles is one of the cutest human beings to walk this earth. And gymnasts have a great reputation on the show. I'm also so thrilled she's paired with Sasha. I've loved him as a pro, and I feel like this season will really give him the opportunity to choreograph some killer dances.
  7. Mr. T and Kym Herjavec
    Ok first off I don't know which last name to use for Kym, but I'm pretty excited that she's back. And I think Mr. T is a good fit for her season back. And also I'm really excited Mr. T is on (but pls don't overdo it with the "pity the fool" jokes). I think it'll be a lot of fun,but I don't know how long it will last. But I hope we at least get to see him paso because I think that will really play to his strengths.
  8. Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev
    I think Nancy Kerrigan will be a beautiful dancer, and I really think this is going to be a good partnership. Of course, it's gonna be tough competing against a more recent Olympic medalist (in terms of popularity). But I definitely don't think their dances will be hard on the eyes, and I hope we'll see them make it to Most Memorable Year.
  9. Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd
    Ah Nick, one of these days you will no longer be in my TV. But today is not that day. I have a weird soft spot for Nick as the Bachelor (maybe because I've watched him for so long but I DIGRESS). Let's face it, Bachelors aren't known for their moves. I think him and Peta will be fine, but I don't see them ever breaking out of the middle of the pack.
  10. Bonner Blue and Sharna Burgess
    Alright, I'm interested. Obviously Sharna proved last season that she can do some amazing thing with people who a) have a lack of dance experience and b) have had a near death experience within the past year. I have to say, his competition is tight, but I could see them being a pleasant surprise.
  11. Erika Jayne and Goeb Savchenko
    I'm not a big Real Housewives fan, but I know a lot of people love her. I know housewives are a staple cast member for the show, but I'm not usually a fan of them. She seems to have a fun personality, so hopefully I'll finally enjoy a housewife.
  12. Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy
    Ok I have to say Val won me over a little bit last season with Laurie. I have no doubt Normani will be a good dancer. She does have some pretty crazy travel to keep up with this season, and I hope that's not her downfall because they got a shot at this.
