Summer is almost over. That means the return of our favorite primetime shows. ABC’s Dancing With The Stars kicks off Season 30 on Monday, September 20. Usually the network keeps the celebrities competing a secret until a week or two before the premiere. However, this year they are shaking things up by dropping some names early. Will Blake Moynes be a contestant on DWTS 30? Find out why fans are asking that question.
DWTS Reveals Two Season 30 Competitors
ABC has undergone a series of changes for two of its most popular franchises. A year after the network announced the shocking news that DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were out, another blow came. Longtime Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison left the franchise after a media storm over race issues on The Bachelor.
Fans are still adjusting to the hosting changes. DWTS tapped model Tyra Banks as host. Former leads Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe hosted Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette. They will return for Michelle Young’s season later this year. A slate of celebrity hosts are taking turns presiding over the drama on Bachelor in Paradise.
ABC plans to keep Tyra as host for another season, despite fan outcry. Typically the names of the returning pro dancers are released before the names of the entertainment stars. However, the network changed things up this year by announcing the first two names of Season 30 stars.
TikTok and YouTube sensation JoJo Siwa will compete with a female dancer partner, a first for the U.S. version of the show.
She will compete against Olympic medalist Suni Lee for the Mirror Ball trophy. The DWTS cast list almost always includes someone from Bachelor Nation. Did Blake Moynes accidentally reveal that he’ll represent Bachelor Nation on DWTS?
Did Blake Moynes Reveal He’s Joining DWTS?!
Robert Mills, an executive at ABC, took to his Twitter before the DWTS news to drum up interest. “BIIIIIG DWTS news coming soon,” he tweeted. He may have gotten more than he bargained for in responses when Blake Moynes replied to the tweet.
Blake wrote that he “can’t wait to get on that stage.” Is he competing on Season 30??
We know that it’s highly likely that someone from the franchise will compete. Earlier this year, fans wondered if Colton Underwood or Tyler Cameron might join the dance competition. Now it seems Blake Moynes is throwing his hat in the ring, or is he?
Robert Mills retweeted Blake’s response, joking that Blake is great at keeping secrets. Given that Blake was engaged to Katie Thurston for MONTHS without anyone knowing, it is unlikely that he would spill a huge secret like this. Therefore, he was probably only joking.

But there is one person fans definitely shouldn’t expect to see on DWTS. Blake’s fiance Katie Thurston.
Don’t Expect To See Katie Thurston on Dance Competition
Katie Thurston posts a lot of content on her various social media platforms. But one thing fans rarely see Katie do is dance. One follower sent Katie a DM saying that now they know why she never posts dance videos. She shared the message on her Instagram Stories. Is Katie a bad dancer?
Her friend – and former suitor – John Hersey did post a video of Katie dancing. Is this why Katie won’t be joining DWTS any time soon?
Which Bachelor Nation star would you like to see on the dance competition? Do you think Blake Moynes really is joining DWTS or was he just joking? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Don’t miss the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars on Monday, September 20. Then Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette premieres on Tuesday, October 19.
But summer isn’t over yet. Enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather with the beachy drama of Bachelor In Paradise, airing Mondays on ABC.
