Never one to shy away from the motto 'Go Big or Go Home', Dancing with the Stars is going out of its way to ensure that it's leader board is full of fan-favorite names when it returns for Season 22 this spring. And it has just landed the star of a very hot Netflix series. No, we won't get to see Frank Underwood tripping the light fantastic with Derek Hough. But we will get to see Stephanie Tanner show her hot stuff on the dance floor.
If last week's premiere of Fuller House taught us one thing, it's that the Tanner Sisters love to dance. So Jodie Sweetin should have no problem staying ahead of the competition as she gears up for her big Dancing with the Stars debut. The young actress is getting paired with Keo Motsepe, and it promises to be one of the more exciting elements introduced this year.
This isn't the Fuller House star's first brush with Dancing with the Stars. In one of the new episodes available for streaming right now on Netflix, Stephanie, D.J. and Kimmy head out for a night on the town that leads them to a fancy nightclub. There, they encounter Dancing with the Stars dancers Maksim and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. And of course, a dancing competition ensues. So if you want a quick sneak peek at what Dancing with the Stars Season 22 might look like, you better queue up that episode quick!
While Dancing with the Stars Season 22 debuts later this month, the full leader board roster has not yet been revealed. Though, we do know a few of the names that will be participating this year. American mixed martial artist Paige VanZant is trading her sparring partner for a dancing partner. American actor and model Nyle DiMarco is ready to show he's more than just a pretty face. And we'll witness the return of Tootie as The Facts of Life star Kim Fields aims to win the Mirrorball Trophy. We can only hope that she dusts off her roller skates. Reality star Scott Disick was also up for a slot on the dance floor, but he apparently wanted too much money. His participation has yet to be confirmed.
Fuller House was renewed for Season 2 earlier today, but it likely won't go into production until closer to the end of the year for an early 2017 debut. That gives Jodie Sweetin plenty of time to compete in Dancing with the Stars Season 22. And it will ensure that she's in great shape by the time she returns to reprise her role as Stephanie for all-new adventures with DJ and the Gibbler. The actress isn't the first Full House alum to appear on Dancing with the Stars. Candace Cameron Bure came in 3rd place during Dancing with the Stars Season 18. The full new cast list should drop soon. All-new episodes debut starting March 21 at 8pm, only on ABC.
