“Dancing with the Stars” is back with its 22nd season with a whole new cast out to win the Mirror Ball trophy.

Last year had been my favorite season by far featuring Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin. Unfortunately this season has really slipped under the rug in my opinion.

Though some of the dancers have their heart and soul placed in the competition I feel a few of them could care less of the opportunity and experience they were given, especially actress Mischa Barton whose attitude throughout the past three episodes really irritated me to the core.

The cast this season is very new to me, some of them I had to research or ‘Google’ who they were to get a better understanding of their backgrounds.

From the very beginning I believed I was going to be team Jodie Sweetin because of my love for Full House and her character Stephanie Tanner but some of the other competitors have really captured my attention.

Number one to really make me stop and look was 22-year-old fighter Paige VanZant whose commitment and power in her dancing has really impressed me.

I also enjoy watching Boys II Men member Wanya Morris dance. His personality really shines through each dance he does.

Last week, he danced what I have to say was one of the best dances this season with his tribute to the 1996 Olympics terrorist attacks.

Morris and his partner Lindsay Arnold danced a beautifully choreographed lyrical piece to the Boys II Men cover of the Star Spangled Banner.

Can you really go wrong with a dance honoring America?

Surprisingly, deaf model Nyle DiMarco has the best moves on the dance floor dancing over the other competitors.

It really goes to show no matter what your limitations are a person can do anything they want to do if they put their mind to it.
