Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson & More DWTS Pros Reveal Which Athletes They'd Love To Join The Show

The Dancing With the Stars cast announcement is only one week away and the pros are dishing about just which athletes they’d love to see on the shortened season.

Sharna Burgess, Alan Bersten, Witney Carson, Gleb Savchenko and Artem Chigvintsev all spoke to ET about which athletes they have their eye on.

For Alan, Gleb and Artem – they have their eyes on Olympians.

“I watched the Olympics this season, just because I was like, ‘A lot of these people might be on the show,’” Alan shared. “[Snowboarder] Chloe Kim looks awesome, and she has a really good personality, a really good energy, good spirit, so she’d be really cool.”

He also agrees with Gleb and Artem about having a figure skater for a partner.

Gleb shared, “I would love to have as a partner someone who has done something connected to music. Probably a figure skater. Someone young, someone with energy. And just someone really who wants to win. I need a mirrorball.”

Artem is also here for that mirrored ball: “A figure skater would be awesome. I’ll tell you, whoever will get me that mirrorball trophy, how about that?”

Meanwhile, Sharna and Witney are looking at other sports, like basketball and football.

Witney has her eyes set on basketball star LeBron James, and even named Adam Rippon as one of her dream people to join.

For Sharna, she’s hoping to be teamed up with another basketball player, like “Kobe Bryant, because, well… Kobe!,” or an NFL star.

“I think Colin Kaepernick has an incredible story to tell,” she adds. “Or Julian Edelman from the Patriots, because I may or may not have a little crush on him.”

The Dancing With The Stars cast and pro announcement will happen on April 13th, with the season premiering on Monday, April 30th on ABC.

Chelsea Kane Remembers Going Way Beyond 'The Dark Side' For Her DWTS Spray Tan Days in Throwback Pic

Chelsea Kane might have just won Throwback Thursday with this post.

The former Baby Daddy actress shared a pic on Instagram today with Mark Ballas, from a few years ago on Dancing With The Stars with the most hilarious caption ever.

“Me and Mark Ballas in my trailer minutes before the #DWTS live show,” Chelsea captioned the shot, showing off the polaroid pic. “I remember being SO nervous that night. It was the third week of competition, but my first time wearing a belly top (er, a BRA) on national television.”

She continues, “This is about the time I crossed over to the ‘dark side’ with my spray tanning. I thought a few extra coats and some contouring would give the illusion that I had abs of steel… which Mark can verify was NOT the case.”

“I know this because he shouted ‘USE YOUR CORE! I CAN’T CARRY YOU AROUND THE ENTIRE SONG!’ so many times I can still hear it. That being said, I love me some Mark Ballas and I’m so glad I still get to see him everyday… because he’s my neighbor now!”

“Granted, he doesn’t know I see him everyday… I watch him from the bushes… S***, I hope he’s not reading this.”

Gleb Savchenko Confirms He'll Be Part of 'Dancing With The Stars' All-Athlete Season!

Gleb Savchenko is officially headed back to Dancing With the Stars!

The 34-year-old professional dancer just shared the news that he will definitely be on the show’s upcoming all-athlete season.

“Yes, I am! For sure,” he confirmed to ET.

He added that the all-athlete season will only be about four weeks.

“What I think is going to happen, we’re going to have two dances a week. We have three weeks of rehearsals, four weeks of the show, and each week, we have two couples go home. So, it’ll be really intense. It’s gonna fly!” Gleb explained.

Gleb also spilled on the regular celebrity season and who he’d like to be paired with.

“I would love to have as a partner someone who has done something connected to music. Probably a figure skater. Someone young, someone with energy. And just someone really who wants to win. I need a mirrorball,” Gleb said.

He added, “But someone who’s really good. Great personality is important but it’s also important that this person is capable of doing stuff. So it’s not just like, I’m working with someone great, but she’s 65-years-old and can barely do anything. So yeah, someone who is really good.”
