10 Celebrities You Forgot Were On ‘Dancing With The Stars’
Reading Time: 3 minutes
Dancing With The Stars has been around since 2005, each season brings together new and old stars in their celebrity cast. Since there’s been 29 seasons, it’s easy to forget that some of our favorite celebrities have been on Dancing With The Stars. Before the new season premieres on Sept. 20 with a whole new batch of stars, let’s revisit some of the biggest names you forgot have competed on the show.
1. Kim Kardashian
Only a year after The Kardashians premiered, Kim Kardashian joined the Dancing with The Stars cast. In season 7 her partner was Mark Ballas, but their run didn’t last long. They were the third to be eliminated in the season.
2. Corbin Bleu
This High School Musical supporting actor showed that he still has “it” after his musical days are over. He was a part of the Dancing With The Stars cast in 2013. In season 17, his partner was Karina Smirnoff and they did great! It’s no surprise that someone coming from a musical background could win second place!
3. Nikki Bella
This WWE icon took to the Dancing With The Stars stage in 2017. In season 25 her partner was Artem Chigvintsev and they didn’t do horribly. Turns out, she’s very athletic, but not the best dancer.
4. Drew Lachey
Although Drew Lachey is also a member of 98 Degrees, he shouldn’t be confused with his brother who recently competed on The Masked Singer. Drew Lachey actually jumped on the DWTS train way before Nick Lachey ever did. Drew Lachey won season two with his professional partner Cheryl Burke. He then went on to compete in DWTS “All-Stars” season 15. In this competition his partner was Anna Trebunskaya.
4. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
I’m going to transport you back to 2009 real quick with this one. Snooki was a part of Dancing With The Stars in 2013 alongside Corbin Bleu. Her partner was Sasha Farber and they did okay, but they didn’t get very close to winning.
This superstar was on Dancing With The Stars before she even hit peak popularity. She competed in season 16 and definitely did not disappoint with her dance moves. When she competed in this show, she was still a part of Shake It Up on Disney Channel. Zendaya’s partner was Val Chmerkovskiy and the two won second place in the competition.
7. Billy Ray Cyrus
Don’t remind my achy breaky heart about Billy Ray Cyrus’s elimination. Cyrus competed in season four of Dancing With The Stars. He was still acting in Hannah Montana on Disney Channel while he competed in DWTS. His partner was Karina Smirnoff and they won fifth place in the competition.
8. Jodie Sweetin
How could you forget Stephanie Tanner from Full House?! She competed in season 22 of Dancing With The Stars and was paired with Keo Motsepe. The pair overall won sixth place in the competition.
9. Cody Simpson
This teen heartthrob proved that he was more than just his singing on Dancing With The Stars. Well, at least he thought he did, until he placed ninth in the competition. The Australian singer competed in season 18 of DWTS in 2014 with his professional partner, Witney Carson.
10. Simone Biles 24
Last, but certainly not least, we have Simone Biles who competed in season 24 of Dancing With The Stars. This Olympian was paired up with Sasha Farber. They showed the audience that Biles can do more than just gymnastics when they placed fourth in the competition.
