Who will join JoJo Siwa and Suni Lee as part of the Dancing with the Stars season 30 cast? The spoilers are beginning to roll in!
1. Matt James, The First Black Bachelor
Bachelor Matt James will join the cast, reports US Weekly. Matt was the first Black Bachelor who starred in the most recent season of the famed dating show. When his chosen Bachelorette, Rachael Kirkconnel came under fire for racist instagram posts, the couple broke up. But the two reunited back in April. Trista Sutter, Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe, Chris Soules, Nick Viall, Joe Amabile, Hannah Brown and Kaitlyn Bristowe are other members of Bachelor Nation to compete on DWTS. His propartner is rumored to be Lindsay Arnold.
2. Real Wives of Atlanta Star Kenya Moore
Kenya has been a full-time housewife for the past 10 seasons on Real Housewives of Atlanta. TMZ production sources report she’s part of the Dancing with the Stars season 30 cast. Kenya joins a long line of Housewives who have been on ‘DWTS’ over the years, including Nene Leakes, Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Jayne, Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Lisa Rinna. Her pro partner is rumored to be Brandon Armstrong.
3. Olivia Jade, daughter of disgraced actress Lori Loughlin
Dancing with the Stars never shies away from casting folks fresh out of notorious scandals. The University of Southern California promptly kicked Olivia out after it came to light that her mother, Full House actress Lori Loughlin, paid to pad both her daughters’ resumes and test scores in order to get them both into USC. Lori fought the charges, but eventually spent time in jail for participating in the scheme.
Olivia was a Youtube star before enrolling in college and becoming embroiled in the college admissions controversy. Some fans might be mad that DWTS will launder her reputation by casting her on the show. But Olivia could also be seen as a victim of her mother’s ambition for her. Throughout her short college career, Olivia made it clear that she didn’t really want to be there. College seemed to be mom’s idea. However, I doubt the youngster will be throwing her family under the bus. Apparently, Olivia has dance experience, so she may last for awhile. TMZ is again citing their production sources for this spoiler. Reportedly her partner is Val Chmerkovskiy
4. Amanda Kloots, Widow of the late Broadway Star Nick Cordero
Amanda was reportedly seen leaving the Dancing with the Stars studio on Tuesday after meeting her partner Alan Bersten. Additionally, she’s been teasing something big in her Instagram stories. “This morning I start something new that I can’t wait to stare with you! It’s been a dream of mine for a long time!! Today is dream come true time!” adding, “Literally teary eyed driving to my new adventure!” She is a co-host on The Talk where she worked with Dancing with the Stars judge, Carrie Ann Inaba.

Dancing with the Stars officially revealed former Dance Moms star and social media influencer JoJo Siwa and Olympic athlete Suni Lee as cast members on a recent Good Morning America. JoJo is reportedly dancing with Jenna Johnson, while Suni Lee is supposedly dancing with Sasha Farber.
