ABC has announced the next group of celebrities who will be taking over the dance floor for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. The cast features celebrities on both ends of the age spectrum, like 17-year-old Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson and 72-year-old fashion designer Betsey Johnson. The show also introduced a new career category, with the first digital star ever on the series: YouTuber Bethany Mota. Of course, there’s also the usual mix of athletes and actors, including Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennet (You go,
Glen Coco Aaron Samuels) and Alfonso Ribeiro, a.k.a. Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a.k.a. a guy who already has a dance move named after him.
“There still is no shortage of who wants to do this show,” show runner Rob Wade tells EW. “It’s not just about name value or something like that. It’s about the stories you can tell with these casts. We want to be original and different. We want archetypes, not stereotypes, going in.”
