Dancing With the Stars Season 19 casting rumors have gone from zero to sixty! First we heard General Hospital hunk Antonio Sabato Jr. will be hitting the ballroom, and now E! reports that Olympic darling Lolo Jones and Pretty Little Liars starlet Janel Parrish (Mona) will be joining him.
Although ABC hasn't confirmed these rumors, they both make sense. Although she didn't take home gold, Lolo is one of America's most recognizable Olympians, having competed in the Summer 2008 and 2012 (hurdles) and Winter 2014 (bobsled) Olympics.
As for Janel, she's a popular star from ABC Family's hit show Pretty Little Liars, the same program that gave us the sexy Brant Daugherty on Season 17. Fans of the show know that Janel's switch to the ballroom makes particular sense because — spoiler alert! — her character, Mona, was just killed off in the dramatic Season 5 summer finale. As fans of the show, we're still crying inside over Mona, but we're happy we'll be seeing Janel on our screens again soon!
Of course, the question remains who these stars will be paired with if the reports are true. Lolo seems like a big get for any pro: she's well-known, athletic, and a stunner to boot. But don't discount Janel, either. Her theater background and the support of the Pretty Little Liars fanbase could make her a force to be reckoned with, too.
