Former Rattler joins DWTS


Karamo Brown, host of Netflix's "Queer Eye" and graduate of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University will be joining the season 28 cast of Dancing with the Stars.

On Wednesday, ABC introduced the entire cast on Good Morning America. The ballroom dancing competition skipped a season in the spring. This will be the first time fans get to watch celebrities pair up with pro dancers since the fall. The show premieres in mid-September.

Leading up to Wednesday's announcement, the official "Dancing with the Stars" Instagram page hinted that Brown would be joining the cast. If you're a Rattler... you knew what the FAMU pendant meant... and exactly who it suggested would be putting on their dancing shoes.


Other clues included a poster with coordinates leading to Houston, Texas, where Brown is from. Another poster hints at his time spent as a cast member of "The Real World." Fans may have also picked up on clues on the computer screen with a cache of bomber jackets Brown is known to wear on "Queer Eye."
