"Dancing with the Stars" Season 24 premieres on ABC on Monday, March 20 with a brand new cast of celebrities. This season's dancing competition will have a lot of surprises. The contestants represent a wide range of careers. The hosts, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, will return. The four judges, Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli, will be back.
During Week 1, the 12 couples will take to the ballroom floor and perform their first dance of the season. It will be a dance they chose themselves as well as the song they will dance to. Most of the couples have taken the opportunity to dance to something that represents their careers, and in one case, a contestant is dancing to her song. Erika Girardi and her partner Gleb Savchenko will dance to Erika's song “XXPEN$IVE.”
It probably isn't a surprise that Mr. T and Kym Herjavec will dance to “The A-Team” theme song. David Ross and Lindsay Arnold will perform to "Go Cubs Go" by Steve Goodman. It is the victory song of the Chicago Cubs that David once played for.
Bets are on
People have already begun to bet on the couples even before their feet have hit the dance floor. For instance, bets are on for Mr. T. and Kym Herjavec to get the lowest score for their first dance. The odds are high that Mr. T and Chris Kattan will be in jeopardy after the first week. Another bet concerning Mr. T is that he will use his catchphrase, "I pity the fool" at least once. Charo who is partnered with Keo Motsepe will say, "Cuchi Cuchi" more than once during the premiere.
The former "The Bachelor" star's recent engagement will probably be addressed. Perhaps Nick Viall will be congratulated while his fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi sits in the audience. People have even bet that Bonner Bolton will wear a cowboy hat while dancing a country cha cha routine with Sharna Burgess to “Move” by Luke Bryan.
Bets are on that no one will get a perfect score during the first week. However, Simone Biles and Sasha Farber have been predicted to get the highest score of the night. No one has bet on what their score will be.
