Thanks to Dancing with the Stars, Olympians, a rapper, an actress, and a politician will have something in common on season 23 of the reality dancing show. The controversial cast will includes Olympic gold medalists Ryan Lochte and Laurie Hernandez. Lochte is currently embroiled in the Olympic scandal where swimmers falsely claimed they had been robbed at gunpoint in Brasil. He's sorry. End of story. Lochte is moving on to dance his troubles away.
Some aren't impressed with the news . . .I’m breaking out my dance shoes for Season 23 of #DWTS! Don’t miss the premiere September … https://t.co/1qejQ6Lcyr pic.twitter.com/unIyhNzwct— Ryan Lochte (@RyanLochte) August 30, 2016
Well, it's all about ratings and casting the show to get as many viewers as possible. Many may tune in just to vote the Olympian bad boy out and then shut it off for the rest of the season. Other dance enthusiasts may keep TIVOing to see what happens as the competition progresses. How will the rapper and actress do?I don't watch #DancingWithTheStars, but I'm gonna go ahead and predict that Lochte is going home on Week 1. #DWTS— Scott Coughlin (@SACoughlin1993) August 30, 2016
