DWTS Season 19 Cast Leaked: ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Sadie Robertson Reportedly Among the New Cast

By: Pam Wright - September 1, 2014

The Dancing With the Stars Season 19 cast was recently leaked, and it looks like it will be a great season.

Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson, 17, will reportedly have her chance to fulfill her dream to compete with other stars for the Mirror Ball Trophy when the new season premieres Sept. 15 on ABC.

Korie Robertson, the mother of the teen and wife of Willie Robertson, told Us Weekly that her daughter has always wanted to be on the dance reality TV show.

“I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” said Korie. “Sadie I think wants to maybe be in a talk show and she wants to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars!'”

Joining Robertson is Janel Parrish, who plays Mona on Pretty Little Liars, confirmed by Us Weekly.

Others competing on the new season of DWTS are Olympian Lolo Jones and Antonio Sabato Jr., a former Calvin Klein model and former General Hospital actor.

Former pro-dancer Julianne Hough — and brother of pro-dancer Derek Hough — will also be returning to the reality show for Season 19 as a fourth judge, joining returning judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli.

“I’m so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis,” said Hough in a press release.

The list of pro-dancers includes DWTS veterans Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas. It has also been confirmed that Derek Hough will be returning to the show, as well as Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd, and Witney Carson.

Reportedly joining the returning pros this season are new pro-dancers Artem Chiqvintsev, Keoikantse Motsepe, and Allison Holker.

The Dancing With The Stars complete celebrity roster will officially be revealed on Good Morning America on Thursday. The leaked list, as reported by The Christian Post, looks like this:

      YYYYYEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!

  • Bessie Cunninham

    Oh dear – worst group of “stars” ever. Love the returning pros, but can’t watch a Duck Dynasty family member. Duck…Yuck. DWTS hit a low with the Kardashians, but this goes so low, they really need to change the name of the show.

    • Diane Carol Grimaud

      What a mean thing to say about a young girl, what’s YOUR problem with her? Or is it you don’t like Christians?

      • Joan Benford

        Amen! Give this beautiful girl a chance. Great example for our young folks.

    • vaughan

      Please Duck Dynasty is a good show, especially when the family gets together at the end of the shows and they pray together. I wish more families did this. It makes me miss my parents SO BAD! Give her a chance, please

      • Chloe

        Hey, let us remind you IT IS A REALITY SHOW, a SCRIPTED reality show.

    • skiman

      then do not watch you sound like a winer
      any way

    • calady

      I agree, I don’t count reality show persons as “Stars”. And I cannot understand why people have to bring religion into this, this has nothing to do with religion, this is a television show that is quickly going down the tubes.

    • michelle miller

      REALLY? It is a dancing show!!
      In the words of Princess Elsa- Let it go!!! Let it go!!!!

      • michelle miller

        Sounds like BESSIE needs to get milked… She sounds a little sour :) lol

    • Cameron Hall

      For shame BigMouthBassie

  • Diane Carol Grimaud

    This ought to be fun this year, love Sadie, but Tommy Chong??? LOL

    • K.L.

      What’s wrong with Tommy Chong? You said it ought to be fun, if anyone would bring fun, it would be him

  • Sara James

    I will not be watching if anyone from Duck Dynasty is on DWTS.

    • Chloe

      Don’t take it out on the girl. As long as her family doesn’t show up, it’ll be. Her Dad is actually good looking IF he would only shave off that ugly, dirty beard.

    • skiman

      sara james we do not need your comment just do not watch

      • jjdoe

        I’ve never sunk to the level of DD, so I don’t know the girl. But you know who will be getting screen time in the peanut gallery.
        We avoid the first month, to avoid the Tommy Chongs and such. We want to see dancing. And this is Disney – they will play to the christian viewers. No one on this list will make me want to watch. Last year, with the skaters and Danica, we watched every week. (but NEVER in real time). And I never care about the winners. It’s all fixed and scripted.
        And the DD set themselves up for the derision. ‘Religious patriots’, as phony as their beards!

    • eatmeoblamo

      good…they don’t want you watching anyway.

      • katie

        They don’t?? LOL Stupid comment of the year award goes to eatmeoblamo.

        • eatmeoblamo

          wow, how much money goes with that award? If you think any one gives a damn what you watch you are delusional.

    • Roo

      Gee I wonder why?

    • Diane Carol Grimaud

      Good, don’t watch, who gives a crap!

  • calady

    Wow, they have given me so many reasons not to watch this season, non-stars and Julianne as a judge.

  • Chloe

    Who the hell is that YouTube person?

    Poor Peta and Tony – they got stuck with the old folks this season. Not fair.

    And finally – “Carlton”!!!!!!!

    • katie

      Betsy Johnson can probably dance the socks off of the younger crowd.

  • BIG B

    IS THERE ANY STARS IN THIS CAST? IT SHOULD BE CALLED DANCING WITH C AND D LIST CELEBRITIES. IF YOU WANT TO SEE STARS, PUNCH YOURSELF IN THE FACE REAL HARD

    • zzzdjh

      “IS THERE” Instead of watching TV go back to school.

  • cant_believe_it

    Poor Mark Ballas, always gets the over-the-top prudes and religious fanatics….

    • Diane Carol Grimaud

      How over the top could Sadie be, I am assuming you are talking about her?
      Geezzzzzzzzzzs she’s only 17, give her a break. And as far as “religious fanatics” would you rather hear F this and F that every other sentence? Great for your children to hear. Finally a show that the whole family can watch. If you don’t like it, go watch something else. Problem solved!

      • katie

        Why would anyone’s children be watching a reality show??

    • Holly Burns

      Yeah but he turns them out!!

  • Kathy Wall

    I’m going to watch not only to see how Sadie Robertson does on there but to laugh at my guy Michael Waltrip from Nascar. Love him to death but I think he will have two left feet lol.

    • Ann Thompson

      I agree what you said about Mikey and I to love him to death he is so funny in the booth for the truck races. But he just may surprise us, he is a big guy 6’4″It will be interesting. Can’t wait

    • Diane Carol Grimaud

      I was thinking the same thing about Michael, love the guy but dancing? LOL

  • David K

    Please vote off Waltrip and Couture the first night. Please. Ribiero is a professional dancer. WTF?

  • rvlady

    I know who girl rom dynasty is, Thomason, Chongh an old man. Waltrip will be funny, but didn’t see much that will interested me to watch

  • Cindy

    Lets hope Tommy Chong can keep it together for the dance routines. I reckon he will be a walking poster boy for long term marijuana use. Always an old dude or lady in the group. Just be nice to have someone more distinguished.

  • Yvonne

    If a person doesn’t care for a certain show or person, it doesn’t have to mean they are a Christian hater…….and just because someone is a Christian, doesn’t mean we have to like them……I don’t watch Duck Dynasty, what snippets I have seen look really stupid, and I don’t consider this girl a star…..Dancing with the Stars should showcase actual stars.

  • kinda lame

    alrighty so Alfonso Ribiero(pro dancer) and Witney Carson win. No need to watch this crap.

  • Darn I’m smart

    Julianna Hough is enough to keep you from watching!

    • eatmeoblamo

      if you are a gay male…

  • ROO

    YUCK….I don’t know most of these people. I only watch when they have a good group so this season is out for me.

  • dawn_cloud

    I think they’ve finally run out of “Stars”

  • K.L.

    One of those is a Youtube star? Star? Really??

  • Debbie Bishop Wilson

    SO SAD to hear that a DD member will be on the cast this year. While I have nothing negative to write about her personally, I will not support any cause, event, merchandise, etc. that has to do with any DD family member. This will be the first season I will not be watching. 8(

  • Edie

    Poor Peta and Tony. Looks to be a good year for Val.

  • ShelBug

    Diane Carol Grimaud……U Need To Get A Life!! WHO CARES WHAT “U”
    THINK??? SHUT UP!!!!
