Rick Perry: Joining Dancing With the Stars!

by at .

Dancing With the Stars returns to ABC in just a few weeks for another season of celebrities dancing for your entertainment. 

The show has got a bit long in the tooth in recent years. That's kind of what happens when you're on the air for over 10 years. 

With ratings sagging, producers are eager to right the ship and make the show more lucrative to ABC.

The full cast announcement is expected to be released on August 30, 2016.

We now know one of the names appearing on the show. 

That honor goes to Rick Perry

If you have no idea who the heck that is, don't fret. We have you covered. 

Perry is a former Texas Governor, who was a Republican presidential candidate in both 2012 and 2016. 

Basically, he's someone you'd expect to appear on the struggling competition series.

There's been a lot of rumblings recently about who else will be joining the show. 

There was word recently that Amber Rose had signed up and was allegedly causing drama from the get-go. 

Say what you want about Amber, but she should have no trouble pulling in the younger demographics for the show. 

The producers will have known about her reputation for not taking BS from anyone, so that probably factored in their decision to pursue her.

Another big name attached to the show is Ryan Lochte. He's the idiot who fabricated what really went down in Rio. 

Ryan being part of the cast just screams desperation, but viewers will no doubt want to see what the dude is really like. 

All they need to do is watch the opening segment of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? and they'll have their answer. 

With that said, Ryan needs to make some money in the wake of his endorsements falling through. 

Dude needs to stop lying. 

What do you think about the latest casting details for the show?
