According to Good Morning America, Rob Gronkowski has said he’s the best dancer in the NFL and incorporates dance moves in his workouts. He also apparently is joining Dancing With the Stars 2018 and hopes to win the mirrorball trophy. Page Six has reported that Gronk was overheard telling people at Shaquille O’Neal’s Miami Music Week event “Fun House” that he wants to win DWTS one day.
For season 26 of the show, there are some major changes coming up and there is even a new show runner, as reported by E! News. Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will return as hosts and Carrie Ann Inaba previously said on Live! With Kelly and Ryan that the fan-favorite judges are on board as well. The season 26 contestants, however, will be limited to just 10 contenders and the contestants will be athletes only. Perhaps this choice was made because of the popularity athletes have had on the show in recent seasons. Whatever the case, this means that no pop stars, actors, musicians or army heroes will appear.
