Last month, the reality dance competition announced that Siwa and Lee would compete for the top prize.
“I don’t think there’s a better time to join,” Jade said at a news event Wednesday after the dancers announced. “I’m ready to get back there.”
James, 29, made history this year as the ABC franchise’s first “Black Bachelor”, USA Today reported. Former “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe was the winner of Season 29, while “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, who was Miss Alabama 2018, was the 2019 champion.
“I discussed with Hannah the dos and don’ts and what I can do to get the trophy like she did,” James said at the press conference. “And it’s about having fun.”
Kove, 75, will be the show’s oldest contestant, according to USA Today. Siwa will become the first contender with a same-sex partner, CNN reported.
Giannulli, 21, is known to be the daughter of “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli.
Loughlin, 57, and Mossimo Giannulli, 58, were indicted in a college admissions scandal in 2019. They pleaded guilty in 2020 to conspiracy charges after being charged with paying half a million dollars to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as rookies to the rowing team. Neither girl had ever rowed competitively.
Mizanin, 40, said his acrobatics as a professional wrestler would not give him any advantage.
“So where do you learn? The Internet. I’ve been studying for as long as possible, ”Mizanin said. “If you put me there today, I would fall face down.” But I’ll get to work.
