What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC reality TV series, Dancing with the Stars: Athletes is a new edition of the original celebrity dance competition. Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews host, while Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba serve as judges. Jenna Johnson, Gleb Savchenko, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Sharna Burgess, Lindsay Arnold, Sasha Farber, and Alan Bersten are the professional dancers partnering with the celebrity athletes.
The sports figures competing are Adam Rippon (with Johnson), Mirai Nagasu (Bersten), Tonya Harding (Farber), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (with Arnold), Arike Ogunbowale (with Savchenko), Chris Mazdzer (with Carson), Jamie Anderson (with Chigvintsev), Jennie Finch Daigle (with Motsepe), Johnny Damon (with Slater), and Josh Norman (with Burgess). Each week, dancers are eliminated, based on judges’ scores and audience votes. The last pair standing will take home the “coveted” Mirrorball trophy.
