The official confirmation of the "Dancing with the Stars" season 19 cast is just a day away, but the pairing has already been revealed ahead of the announcement on "Good Morning America" on Thursday.
It was previously reported that YouTube sensation Bethany Mota, "Pretty Little Liars" star Janel Parrish, television actor Antonio Sabato Jr., and "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson will be a part of season 19.
And now, PureDWTS has come out with the complete pairing details, which puts Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker together.
Tommy Chong is said to be paired with Peta Murgatroyd, and Randy Couture will be with Karina Smirnoff. YouTube sensation Bethany Mota will head to the dance floor with Derek Hough and Betsey Johnson will be with Tony Dovolani.
Other pairings is as follows:
Lolo Jones and Keoikantse Motsepe
Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy
Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas
Alfonso Riberio and Witney Carson
Antonio Sabato Jr. and Cheryl Burke
Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev
Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater
Sharna Burgess, who was the only professional dancer without a partner until recently, is said to be paired with radio and talk show host Tavis Smiley, according to PureDWTS. However, there are no hints on Smiley's social networking accounts that confirm the news.
"Dancing with the Stars" recently posted online a blurred picture of Burgess air-kissing someone believed to be her partner, and since then a number of names have been tossed around as to who the celebrity dancer could be.
Some of the names included Darius Rucker, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley. Prior to the photo, several websites had predicted personalities such as John Stamos, Michael Sam, Nash Overstreet and Rob Lowe to be Burgess' partner.
If these speculations are correct, then "The Bachelorette" winner Josh Murray and his finacee Andi Dorfman are not part of the upcoming edition of "Dancing With the Stars" as previously believed. Earlier reports had indicated that the newly engaged couple will compete against each other in season 19.
Meanwhile, professional dancer Smirnoff is unsure about the casting of Julianne Hough as the fourth judge, considering her brother Derek is a competitor on the show.
"I think she is a great girl, I've known her for many years," Smirnoff told Us Weekly. "I think that she is wonderful, gorgeous, and talented, but I don't know if it's ethical that she is judging while her brother is competing."
The official cast announcement of "Dancing with the Stars" season 19 will be made on "Good Morning America" on 4 September.
