*On Wednesday morning, “Good Morning America” revealed the celebrities that will compete on ABC’s revamped, Tyra Banks-hosted “Dancing With the Stars.” They’ve pulled notables from the usual categories of sports, music and TV, but this time added someone widely suspected of cold blooded murder.

The cast includes rapper Nelly, former NFL player Vernon Davis, NBA vet Charles Oakley, “The Real” host Jeannie Mai, Disney Channel star Skai Jackson and Carole Baskin, whose fame is rooted in suspicion that she had her husband killed in the Netflix docuseries “Tiger King.”

Rounding out the cast are Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean, “Selling Sunset’s” Chrishell Stause, former “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe, actor Jesse Metcalfe, Monica Aldama (head coach from Netflix’s “Cheer”), Anne Heche, “One Day at a Time” actress Justina Machado, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.

Baskin spoke to “GMA” after the reveal. “The biggest thing for me is the longer my partner and I can stay in the running and in the competition it will keep the cats forefront in the viewers’ eye, and to me that was where ‘Tiger King’ missed the ball,” she said. “It really should have been focused on the animals and I’m hoping ‘Dancing with the Stars’ will do that.  I am competitive but I am competitive with myself I want to do the very best that I can possibly do.”

Nelly also chatted with the morning show after being named as one of the new “DWTS” cast members and said he was “up to the challenge.”

“I’m a Scorpio I feel like I can do anything so this is gonna be my biggest test yet, but I’m up for it,” he laughed, adding, “I love competition and I think this is one that will set me apart from others if I can pull this one off only because I got two left feet, and probably two right ankles, so I’m trying to see where we can go with this thing.”

Banks has been added as an executive producer for Season 29 and also replaces longtime host Tom Bergeron. His co-host Erin Andrews has also exited. The new season premieres Monday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
