The “Dancing With the Stars” duos won’t take to the ballroom for a few more weeks, but they’re already preparing. Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bolton have high hopes for Season 24 and they know it’s not going to be easy.

The pair opened up about what’s to come on the ABC competition series, telling People, “there’s a lot of talent in this cast.” Bonner thinks Mr. T and Charo are going to be the toughest contestants to beat. He told the publication that both have big personalities that may wow the “DWTS” judges.

“I’m thinking Mr. T! He brings that punch,” Bonner said. “And Charo. You can’t beat her personality. That woman is full of energy.”

Sharna and Bonner also gave fans some hints about what to expect from Season 24. Bonner — who is a bull rider and a model — said he expects that “DWTS” costume designers will toy with his cowboy image. He joked that while he often wears a cowboy hat, it’s not attached to his body.

“I think they’ll probably play with me having it on and not having it on,” he said. “It does come off, believe it or not — it’s not glued on!”

The “DWTS” Season 24 cast announcement took place on Wednesday. The stars and their pro partners appeared on “Good Morning America” to make it official. Most of the cast, which include Nick Viall, Erika Girardi, Simone Biles and Rashad Jennings, was no surprise to fans.

Several leaks hit the web before the announcement took place. They leaks proved accurate, revealing Kym Johnson’s return to “DWTS” as well as many of the star’s participation.
