The new cast has been announced for the upcoming season of DANCING WITH THE STARS, and naturally, there’s a soap star included. Of course, Corbin Bleu is better known for his role as Chad in the High School Musical series than playing Jeffrey on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. And it’s likely that his experience in the Disney musicals will give him a leg up on his competition. He might also have an advantage in that his partner will be Karina Smirnoff, who danced opposite J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot, ALL MY CHILDREN) when he won season 13!
Bleu will join fellow contestants Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Brant Daugherty, Bill Engvall, Valerie Harper, Keyshawn Johnson, Christina Milian, Bill Nye, Jack Osbourne, Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi, Leah Remini and Amber Riley on the new season debuting Monday, September 16 on ABC.
