Bethany Mota, Lolo Jones, and Betsey Johnson join ‘Dancing With the Stars’
She’s already got over 8 million subscribers on her side.
One of the brightest faces of YouTube is about make an impression on the rest of America.
YouTube beauty and fashion guru Bethany Mota joins Olympian Lolo Jones, actor Alfonso Ribeiro (and his Carlton dance), fashion designer Betsey Johnson, and nine other celebrities on the cast for the 19th season of Dancing With the Stars. Good Morning America made the announcement earlier Thursday, and it’s the first time that DWTS has dipped into YouTube in search for the celebrity cast.
Mota’s been partnered with Derek Hough, who’s already won five separate times with his celebrity partner.
The news that Mota would be joining the cast was first reported last week when many of the names on the casting list leaked, but nothing was confirmed until today’s official reveal.
After the segment aired, Mota took to Twitter to announce the news for those who may have missed it.
ITS TRUE!!! I’m going to be on this season of Dancing with the stars!!!! AHH! My partner is @derekhough what should our team name be?! 💃🌟

“I think it’s going to be very interesting because I’ve never done anything like this before, so it’ll be a fun experience,” Mota said. Hough, whom she’s already started training with, told GMA that “she’s great, she’s got some sass.”
It’s safe to say that her fans are excited.
