It’s been one week since ABC started teasing the upcoming cast of Dancing with the Stars. (We see you, Hannah Brown.) And now, we finally have a first look at the celebs who will battle it out for the highly coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

On today’s episode of Good Morning America, the network revealed the full cast list for season 28 of DWTS. So, who’s getting fitted for ballroom shoes?

1. Hannah Brown

The former Bachelorette revealed that she couldn’t be more thrilled to return to reality television. “Can’t stop, won’t stop,” Hannah said. “I am so excited. I want a fresh start, something that I can go all in with, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and I think dancing is something that I can do that with.”

2. Karamo Brown

The culture expert is bringing his Queer Eye knowledge to the ballroom floor.

3. James Van Der Beek

Because everyone can use a dose of Dawson’s Creek.

4. Lauren Alaina

She’s an American Idol contestant turned country singer.

5. Mary Wilson

The Supremes singer is returning to the stage (hopefully bringing us more Motown).

6. Kel Mitchell

From All That to Keenan & Kel, the actor is a pro when it comes to live television. Dancing, on the other hand, might be an entirely different story.

7. Christie Brinkley

It appears strutting the runway isn’t the supermodel’s only talent.

8. Kate Flannery

She played Meredith Palmer on NBC’s The Office. And now, she’s ready to show America what she’s made of.

“I had nine seasons of the most unglamorous character on TV, so we’re going in a different direction,” Flannery said. “Bring on the Spanx, bring on the spray tans, whatever you’ve got!”

9. Lamar Odom

He’s a retired NBA player, who is widely known for marrying (and then divorcing) Khloé Kardashian.

10. Ray Lewis

The NFL legend used to play for the Baltimore Ravens.

11. Ally Brooke

Former member of Fifth Harmony. Future contestant on DWTS.

12. Sean Spicer

Now that he’s no longer the U.S. press secretary, it makes sense.

Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars premieres on September 16 on ABC.
