Following the announcement of the DWTS Season 18 cast list on March 4, Gigi tweeted her support for her 17-year-old Australian pop star beau. "So excited for @CodySimpson to take the @DancingABC stage!!" Gigi writes. "Proud no matter the outcome, but I know he's got skills!! ❤️❤️"
But how will Cody fare in the competition? He's definitely a contender, given the dance moves he displays while performing. However, other talented cast members this season include Charlie White and Meryl Davis, the ice dance partners who just won multiple Olympic medals in Sochi, along with Big Time Rush hottie James Maslow and hockey star Sean Avery, since athletes usually do well.
And speaking of Real Housewives stars, we even think Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes could be a solid contender, given her winning personality! In other words, Cody has his work cut out for him, but we're wishing him the best.
How do you think Cody will do on the show? And what do you think of his relationship with Gigi?
