The Full DWTS Season 31 Cast Is Finally Here
From TikTok stars to a recent Bachelorette.
Last season’s Dancing with the Stars cast made history, in more ways than one — from JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson being the show’s first same-sex dance partners ever to Iman Shumpert being the first NBA player to take home the top prize. So looking ahead, the Dancing with the Stars Season 31 cast had big (tap, jazz, or ballroom) shoes to fill.
If you’re used to keeping up with the show, you know that the names of rumored stars usually start to circulate before an official announcement is made — and once again, there were reports of some very familiar faces joining the Dancing with the Stars Season 31 cast. The official lineup was revealed Sept. 8.
A reminder: don’t tune into your local ABC affiliate to watch the show on its premiere date of Sept. 19 — this year, the stars are shimmying onto Disney+ for the first time ever.
So, who can you look forward to seeing? Here’s a list of every celebrity confirmed to be on the Dancing with the Stars cast for Season 31.
Charli D’Amelio & Heidi D’Amelio
TikTok star Charli D’Amelio was rumored to be part of the Dancing with the Stars cast — and finally, ABC confirmed the buzz. Charli and her mom, Heidi, will be the first family members to ever compete against each other on the show, Good Morning America points out.
“I think when it comes to the actual choreography, I would love to, you know, maybe do a little nod to why I am even here, and what got me here,” Charli told GMA about doing TikTok moves on the show. “But I think I’m really going to work on the technical parts of ballroom dance.”
As many fans speculated, Bachelorette Gabby Windey is joining Dancing with the Stars — following in the footsteps of fellow Bachelor Nation alums like Matt James and (Season 29 winner) Kaitlyn Bristowe. Before the news was announced, ScreenRant broke the rumor of Gabby’s casting down — citing a bit of social media sleuthing that noted a woman arriving at rehearsal (with her face hidden, of course) had hair, shoes, and jewelry similar to what we’ve seen Gabby wear.
American Idol winner and “No Air” singer Jordin Sparks will be part of the Dancing with the Stars Season 31 cast.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son and fellow bodybuilder Joseph Baena will be on this season’s cast, too.
Comedian Wayne Brady will be dancing onto the show’s Season 31 cast.
Dancing with the Stars Season 31 will also feature Hallmark star, Trevor Donovan.
You’ll spot Sex and the City alum Jason Lewis on this season’s lineup, too.

Cruel Intentions star and advocate Selma Blair will be another familiar face on the Dancing with the Stars Season 31 cast.
Of course, there are several names that were rumored to be appearing on Season 31 but were not ultimately announced — one of them being Bachelor alum Colton Underwood, whom Daily Mail reported was seen at rehearsals.
Another rumored contestant? Robert Irwin. Australian magazine New Idea first reported on fan speculation that The Crocodile Hunter’s could be joining the show, a report that was echoed by the Daily Mail. Earlier this year, Robert did tell Entertainment Tonight that “it’s about time” he takes his turn on the show. His sister Bindi Irwin, as you’ll remember, won the Season 21 competition with Derek Hough 2015. She paid tribute to their late father in a very emotional dance number.
