Prior to the official unveiling of the list of celebrities joining "Dancing with the Stars" 2016 on "Good Morning America" on March 8, several personalities included in the lineup have been unmasked.
E! Online has confirmed that actress Mischa Barton and "Good Morning America's" resident meteorologist Ginger Zee will be competing for the Mirror Ball Trophy in the new season. Barton was paired with Artem Chigvintsev while Zee will be dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy.
"Full House" star Jodie Sweetin and Kim Fields from "Facts of Life" will also be taking part in "Dancing with the Stars" 2016. There have been a lot of speculations about the two joining the show and it turns out that rumor mill is right.
Another confirmed celebrity gracing this year's "Dancing with the Stars" is NFL star Von Miller. The Denver Broncos outside linebacker, who admitted his love for dancing to ESPN last month, is out to bust some moves out of the field and on the ballroom.
Meanwhile, there's word going around that "The Bachelor" lead Ben Higgins will be one of the contestants on "Dancing with the Stars" 2016.
"I'm not against any opportunity that presents itself," Higgins told E! Online, hinting that he has been offered to join.
The reality star wants to make sure first and foremost that it is the "best thing" for him to engage in.
"I don't know yet, I don't. I don't want to say this is the way I'm going to go with it because I haven't decided," Higgins explained.
Should he choose to join "Dancing with the Stars" 2016, he won't be the first bachelor to do so. Bachelors from previous season have competed. Chris Soules, Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka all took a shot at the Mirror Ball Trophy.
"America's Next Top Model" season 22 winner Nyle DiMarco is also confirmed to join the new season of "Dancing with the Stars." As for the pros, Derek Hough has confirmed that he's sitting this season out. Her sister Julianne Hough is also skipping this year for other endeavors.
"Dancing with the Stars" 2016 premieres March 21 on ABC. The complete cast will be revealed on "Good Morning America" on March 8.
