Burke will be paired with Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. Well, everyone except USA women's gymnastics team member Laurie Hernandez, who will be partnered with Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Dancing With the Stars has stunned us again with another lineup of "celebrities" to fill the dance card for the 23rd (!) season of the immensely popular ABC competition series.

Hernandez also gushed to GMA about her DWTS partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. "It's also a little bit of image sustainability". Stars like Amber Rose, Vanilla Ice, Maureen McCormick, Jana Kramer and more will also be hitting the ballroom - and we totally can not wait! There are a few surprises as well - former Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be putting on his dancing shoes! Jole, Austin and Rose could be at a disadvantage because they don't have huge voting bases.

What's rapper Vanilla Ice been doing since the 90s?

"I think it's everyone blowing this way out of proportion", he replied. "I was still going through the emotions of, you know, having a gun pulled on me". Lochte had already left the country by the time the charges were filed. Four sponsors recently dropped Lochte, and "Dancing With the Stars" is an ideal tour stop for scandal-plagued celebrities: It's a safe, cheesy, family-friendly place to earn some goodwill and display humility as you learn to dance and wear unbelievably sparkly costumes.


Now, to be fair, all the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars are gorgeous ladies, and Ryan Lochte, being the type of guy he is, probably would have responded this way to absolutely any of the professionals he could have been presented with.

Disgraced US swimmer Ryan Lochte is hoping to dance his way back into the public's good books, after his fabricated tale of a gunpoint robbery in Rio de Janeiro cast a pall over the United States' Olympic success earlier this month.
