Sadie Robertson will be trading her camouflage for a pair of bedazzled dancing shoes when the “Duck Dynasty” star hits the ballroom floor on the 2014 season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Although ABC declined to comment on Season 19 casting rumors, E! News confirmed that Robertson, the granddaughter of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, will be shimmying her way into our living rooms when the season premieres Monday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m. EDT.
The 17-year-old reality star will likely be a fierce competitor on this season of “DWTS,” as she's apparently quite an athlete! She was ranked sixth in the state of Louisiana for javelin throwing, a track and field event that requires the competitor to toss a spear as far as she can.
“Sadie Robertson is well known for her dimples and engaging smile, but there is more to Sadie than those two traits,” a press release for a meet and greet with the reality star at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre explained. “She has the quick wit and humor of her dad, Willie, the Southern grace of her mother, Korie, and the athletic ability of her papaw, Phil.”
Looks like Robertson might be the celebrity competitor to look out for this season on “DWTS.” Thus far it was revealed that Olympian Lolo Jones, “Pretty Little Liars” star Janel Parrish and “General Hospital” hottie Antonio Sabato Jr. will be busting their best moves in hopes of winning the coveted mirror ball trophy. The full list of Season 19 celebrity dancers will be revealed on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Thursday, Sept. 4.
According to reports, there will be new faces notonly on the ballroom dance floorbut also behind the judges' table! It was revealed that Julianne Hough, former guest-judge and two-time “DWTS” champ, will debut as a season regular judge, joining Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli for the upcoming installment.
The professional dancers Hough will be critiquing include her very own flesh and blood, brother Derek Hough, as well as Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burk, Val Chmerkovsky, Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvinstev, Allison Holker, Keo Mostepe, Peta Murgatroyd and Emma Slater.
