DWTS Season 21: Bindi Irwin Revealed as First Celeb Contestant

Dancing With the Stars Cast

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.
