'Dancing with the Stars' Season 25 cast officially announced by ABC

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/06/2017 

Dancing with the Stars' cast for this fall's 25th season has been officially announced.

ABC formally revealed the celebrities and their pro partners who will be competing on Dancing with the Stars' next edition on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning.

The celebrities are Property Brothers star Drew Scott, Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse, Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran, former NBA star and coach Derek Fisher, former Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen, singer and actor Jordan Fisher, WWE wrestler and Total Divas star Nikki Bella, former NFL football wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens, actor and racecar driver Frankie Muniz, singer and songwriter Debbie Gibson, internationally-recognized violinist Lindsey Stirling, and married couple and TV personalities Vanessa Lachey and Nick Lachey.

With the exception of Debbie, all the celebrities had been reported prior to the official cast announcement.

"I've actually moved out of the house for the duration of the season, just to keep the peace," Nick joked on GMA of competing against his wife, not to mention their pro partners are a married couple as well.

Victoria called the opportunity "a dream come true."

"This means everything," Victoria said.

"It's something I always wanted to do but never really knew if I was ever going to have that chance, just giving circumstances and everything. I can honestly say though that learning to walk was easier than learning to ballroom dance."

Barbara said she's "scared to death" of dancing and feels like she's going to be "walking the plank."

And Debbie views Dancing with the Stars next season as her entertainment comeback and return to the spotlight.

"I've been dealing with some health challenges with Lyme disease and that's part of the reason why I kind of come out of hiding," Debbie explained on GMA.

"It's kind of a big, bold way to do it, but I wanted to do it. And I said to producers, 'You might want to pair me with someone older and more seasoned who knows how to take care of me, because this might be an interesting road -- [Alan Bersten] has been so nurturing, so supportive."

Debbie is paired with the former Dancing with the Stars Troupe member for the new season, which marks Alan's first appearance as a pro partner on the show. Alan is also ironically one of the youngest pro dancers on the series.

In addition to Alan, the other previously-revealed professional dancers who will be partnered with Season 25's stars are Emma Slater, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Sharna Burgess, Val Chmerkovskiy, Lindsay Arnold, Artem Chigvintsev, Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Mark Ballas.

Drew will be paired with reigning DWTS champion Emma, Sasha will be partnered with Gleb, Barbara will be paired with Keo, Derek will be paired with Sharna, and Victoria will be partnered with two-time mirrorball trophy champion Val.

Jordan will be paired with Lindsay, Nikki will be partnered with Artem, and Terrell will be paired with two-time mirrorbally trophy champion Cheryl. (Terrell was announced on Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America).

Frankie will be partnered with one-time DWTS winner Witney, Lindsey will be paired with two -time mirrorball trophy champ Mark, Nick will be partnered with two-time DWTS winner Peta, and Vanessa will be partnered with one-time show champion Maksim.

Noticeably missing from the lineup of pro dancers are Sasha Farber and Jenna Johnson, who will be members of the Season 25 Troupe this year.
