DWTS Season 21: Bindi Irwin Revealed as First Celeb Contestant

In what could turn out to be the most drawn out casting announcement in television history, ABC ever-so-slightly pulled the curtain back on Dancing With the Stars‘ Season 21 cast, revealing Bindi Irwin as the first celeb contestant.

The 17-year-old daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin admitted on Good Morning America that the gig marked a major departure for her. “This is completely different to anything I have ever done in my life,” she said. “I am used to wrangling crocodiles.”

The full DWTS lineup will be (slowly) revealed over the next two weeks, leading up to the Sept. 14 premiere.

    Well, that announcement is a promising start for the season. I’m excited to see how she’ll do, and considering how she was brought up she should be fearless which has got to help.

    Really hope her mom Terri must be very proud of her.

    Who? Just cancel this show already. They’ve clearly run out of even the most d-list of celebs. The next announced person will be Nicki Minaj’s booty wiper.

  4. Susannah says:

    She’s 17?! Wow, I feel old… She’s really smart and charming when you see her in interviews, probably athletic too, running around after all those animals! I think she’ll do well on the show.

    I grew up watching her father and I was devastated when he died. Was a big hit to my childhood. *sigh* I wish her well. She’s young, so it should be something fun for her.

    So now it is “Dancing with the relatives of minor Reality Stars”

    Not exactly a celebrity, but it should be interesting.
