Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve Irwin (of “Crocodile Hunter” fame) has been announced as the first celebrity contestant on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
When I first heard the news, I headed to the Google machine to remind myself who Bindi even was. Then I learned that, in addition to being the daughter of the famous late Mr. Irwin, she’s also a TV and film actress in her own right. Congrats, then, Bindi, and welcome to the show.
I typically don’t get super excited about the new casts of “DWTS,” but inevitably get sucked in as the season gets started.
The new cast will be announced next week and the show premieres September 14.
