Dancing With the Stars is quickly approaching its season 32 premiere, and fans are already ecstatic to see Vanderpump Rules personality Ariana Madix and The Bachelorette star Charity Lawson join the cast. While other celebrities and the pros haven't been announced just yet, some eagle-eyed viewers may have uncovered a major clue about a new dancer making her TV debut this fall.
In a post uploaded on the platform on September 5, user @Lillbizz noticed and screenshot a since-deleted Instagram post from famed dancer and Strictly Come Dancing head judge Shirley Ballas (whose son, Mark Ballas, won season 31 with Charli D'Amelio). Posting side-by-side photos with Rylee Arnold, Shirley seemingly revealed that Rylee will join Dancing With the Stars season 32 in the same role her sister, Lindsay, had on the competition series.
"O've known this beautiful girl the majority of her life," Shirley captioned the picture (which you can see here). "And look at her now about to join the @dancingwiththestars US professional cast. @ryleearnold1."
Although Shirley erased the post as quickly as she could, fans definitely caught on to the possibility that Rylee could be the next Arnold sister on TV. As a result, many started to comment how much they loved Shirley's excitement over the prospect.
"Shirley is so funny. She cannot keep a secret," one user commented on Reddit. "This is actually iconic [though]. She may have deleted it but that won’t stop us from seeing it still 😂," another laughed. "LMAOOO homegirl really leaked it 😭😭 icon status," a different follower added.
So, who is Rylee and what is her full connection to Dancing With the Stars? While not much is out about her professional life, the 2023 high school graduate has been ballroom dancing for years. Just like Lindsay and her other sister, Jensen, who has been on So You Think You Can Dance, she has participated in numerous dancing competitions. While we won't know for sure whether she'll officially be part of season 32, it's definitely an exciting idea.
As far as Lindsay's participation on the show, she bowed out of season 31 after being paired with The Bachelor alum Matt James in season 30. The mom of two announced on TikTok that she won't be on television this season, sharing she wanted to spend more time with her daughters Sage and June, and her husband Sam Cusick. But, she did drop an interesting clue leading to this Reddit theory being legitimate.
"That's not to say that I'm not going to be maybe having some fun connections to this season," she teased. "I'm not going to say anything other than that, but I'm very excited."
Guess we'll have to wait and see if this comes true!
