Among the names announced is Carole Baskin from Netflix’s ‘Tiger King.’  She is best known as one of Joe Exotic’s foes on the popular streaming program.

Baskin’s inclusion has been broadcasted on the network that carries ‘DWTS,’ and she is not the only person planning to dance on the ballroom floor.

According to Varietythe rest of the cast includes Nelly, Justin Machado, AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys, Catfish host Nev Schulman, Vernon Davis, Charles Oakley, and Cheer coach Monica Aldama.

Also featured in the 2020 Season is Kaitlyn Bristowe of the Bachelorette, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, Skai Jackson, Anne Heche, Chrishell Stause of Selling Sunset, and The Real host Jeannie Mai, who is currently engaged to Jeezy.

The new season of ‘DWTS’ on ABC kicks off on Sep. 14 with Tyra Banks as host, instead of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.

Lewis disappeared in 1997 before he was “legally declared dead” five years later.

Still, that didn’t stop internet users from reacting online to the news of Baskin joining ‘DWTS.’  Here are some of the reactions below:

Now let’s see whether or not Baskin will end up winning Season 29 of ‘DWTS!’
