The cast of Dancing with the Stars season 24 hasn’t even been announced, but we can probably already predict who is going to win the Mirror Ball Trophy. According to ET, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles will join the cast.
Biles, who won four Gold medals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, will hope to follow in the footsteps of her teammate, Laurie Hernandez, who just won the Mirror Ball in season 23. Biles will turn 20 shortly before the season begins.

Female Olympics gymnasts have a stellar track record when it comes to Dancing with the Stars and are very popular choices. Besides Hernandez, Shawn Johnson is also a past winner (and she finished second on the All-Stars season) while Nastia Liukin and Alexandra Raisman both finished in fourth place.
With that pedigree, whichever pro is partnered with Biles should probably start clearing a space on their mantle right now for the Mirror Ball. Hopefully the cast will include equally talented stars who can make the season competitive, because having someone with such an obvious advantage can lead to a dull and predictable season.
