Dancing With The Stars will premiere its 23rd season on September 12th. There have been many rumors of who may be on the show this season. After the Olympics, the show has historically gone for an Olympian to join the lineup. This year they set their sights on gymnast Simone Biles who is a Gold Medal winner. According to Celebrity Laundry she was unable to commit because of the 3-month post-Olympic tour.
