Rob Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice)
The “Ice, Ice, Baby” star has been paired with Witney Carson. He said, “I am a break dance, and I know fellow break dancers, but I don’t know about others. So, it may be like cramming for some time. I love dancing, and I will give my best shot to it. He has never watched the show. “It will be tough. I will take in it as another fun event to me.”
Being a pro dancer, Lindsay Arnold considers gymnast Laurie Hernandez to be the biggest competition to her team. Arnold said, “I think one to beat is Hernandez. She performed with so much grace on the gymnast floor. Hernandez is paired up with Val Chmerkovskiy.
Henner is paired with Derek Hough. Hough said, “I will be doing DWTS and Hairspray at the same time. It should be fun and will be like going back and forth. Former Taxi star Henner said, “It’s like a dream come true for me. It’s the best party as everybody goes through transformations. I have got the chance to learn a lot.”
Rose is the second ex of Kanye West. Earlier, she was Kim Kardashian, but she couldn’t stay more on the show. But, the music video veteran may stay for a long time. She has been paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. After Rose had posted their practice video online, the two got into trouble.
She got separated from third husband, Mike Caussin. He is currently in rehab. The singer is paired with pro-Gleb Savchenko. Savchenko was on the show last time too and danced with reality star Lisa Vanderpump. Kramer has worked as an actress in One Tree Hill, Entourage, and Friday Night Lights.
