Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran and Malcolm in the Middle actor Frankie Muniz will show off their fancy footwork during season 25 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

This morning, the 13 celebrities competing for the Mirror Ball were announced on Good Morning America.

Corcoran, an Edgewater native, is partnered with Keo Motsepe, a pro who has been on the show for five seasons but has yet to win the competition.

“I don’t love dancing, I’m scared to death of it. I feel like I’m walking a plank, but look who’s on the plank with me,” said Corcoran on GMA as she pointed to Motsepe.

Corcoran’s fellow sharks, Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec, danced during previous seasons with pro Kym Johnson. Herjavec and Johnson are now married.

Wood-Ridge bred Muniz teams up with pro Witney Carson, who won the Mirror Ball trophy during season 19 with her partner Alfonso Ribeiro. Muniz is known for his roles in Malcolm in the Middle, My Dog Skip, and Big Fat Liar. He is also a singer and race car driver.

This season,  some familiar faces return to the dance floor. Professionals Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas are back. Burke starts her Love on The Floor Tour in 2018 and Ballas just completed his stint as Frankie Valli in Broadway’s Jersey Boys production in Los Angeles. Former troupe member Alan Bersten joins the pros and former pro Sasha Farber joins the troupe.
