Jesse Metcalfe on ‘DWTS’: Who He’s Calling a ‘Total Ringer,’ His Thoughts on Carole Baskin and More

Actor Jesse Metcalfe is ready to hit the dance floor! “Extra’s” Jenn Lahmers caught up with Metcalfe after the big announcement that he is joining “Dancing with the Stars” for Season 29.

Jesse confessed he has “no formal dance training whatsoever,” and called out his fellow contestant Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean as a “total ringer.”

Metcalfe revealed he was crazy about “Tiger King,” and binged the Netflix show in two days. Now, he’s competing against one of the stars of the docuseries, Carole Baskin.

“Carole is definitely a character,” Jesse said. “I respect her as a human being, I respect her journey. She has gotten a great opportunity and she’s making the most of it. Kudos to Carole Baskin.”

“Dancing with the Stars” premieres September 14 on ABC.
