The Dancing With the Stars casting rumors sure are swirling in these final days before the Season 19 slate is officially announced. And now it appears that the ABC reality competition show has found their token pretty, young reality star in the form of Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson!
According to an Us Weekly source, the 17-year-old model — a big DWTS fan, herself — will be joining stars like Pretty Little Liars’ Janel Parrish and hunky soap star Antonio Sabaot, Jr., when the new season premieres on September 15.
While Sadie’s grandpa Phil and dad Willie would have been more surprising choices — just think of the beard-to-sequin ratio! — this gorgeous gal is a no-brainer. The high school junior is tall, pretty, and athletic (she plays varsity basketball), so not only will she kill it in the costumes, but she probably has the stamina for the dance floor. Add in the natural grace she has as a runway gal, and you’ve got the perfect combo!
In an almost prophetic move, back in May of this year, Sadie’s mother Korie told the mag that her daughter has always dreamed of competing on DWTS. "I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it. Sadie I think wants to maybe be on a talk show and she wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!" Korie joked. Fast forward nearly four months and girl’s dreams are coming true!
