Dancing with the Stars is returning for its 22nd season on Monday, March 21 on ABC with a 2-hour premiere. Given that the show has been running for 22 seasons now is a testament to its massive popularity, but this year's cast is one of the very best in the show's history. Among the stars that will be paired up with professional dancers are Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, Bills legend Doug Flutie, and UFC fighter Paige VanZant.
Given that the show is hosted by Erin Andrews, it's no surprise that there's a lot of NFL representation but Paige VanZant is the first female fighter to appear on the show. Before she did professional fighting, she had an extensive background in dance so that is why oddsmakers are picking her as the favorite to win the whole thing.
Roster of competitors for season 22 of 'DWTS:'
Last season saw Bindi Irwin, daughter of the Crocodile Hunter, emerge victorious with her partner Derek Hough. He is Julianne Hough's brother, who is one of the judges, so there may have been some collusion involved. However, this season's competitors will look to outdo them and put on a show. When all is said and done, this could be one of the most memorable seasons of Dancing with the Stars in a long time, so be sure not to miss it.
