Julianne's departure won't be the only change for the venerable series this season, as Len Goodman is returning to judge the contestants' fancy footwork after his season 21 absence.The full season 22 cast list has not yet been announced, although Us exclusively revealed earlier this month that Fuller House's Jodie Sweetin will compete.
There's something delicious about a show where nerves are on end and no one is a sure thing.
"I have no idea who's going to win this," says dance pro Jonathan Roberts, who stopped by to chat just moments before this Monday night's competition began.
Ohno was born in Seattle, Washington, to a Japanese-born father, Yuki Ohno (大野 幸 Ōno Yuki) and a European American mother, Jerrie Lee.
Ohno's parents divorced when he was an infant, and he was raised in Seattle by his father.
His father chose to name his son Apolo after the Greek words "Apo," which means to "steer away from" and "lo," which means "look out; here he comes." When Ohno was very young, his father meticulously researched childcare providers to care for his son during his long work hours.
As he grew older, his father became concerned his son would become a latchkey kid, so he got his son involved with competitive swimming and quad-speed roller skating at age 6.
Only 15 years old, Ohno faced a difficult decision regarding whether to continue competing.
During his week of solitude, he decided to become more disciplined, and to train harder to excel at his sport.
Ohno later became host of a revival of Minute to Win It on Game Show Network and served as a commentator for NBC's coverage of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
