5 Contestants To Watch On 'Dancing With The Stars' That Are Definitely In It To Win It

On Monday, "Dancing with the Stars" returned to our televisions with their 29th season. This season featured a lot of different changes including a new host, a new judge as well as a new judging system.

Among these changes, there were also changes to account for the coronavirus pandemic. Some of these changes included practicing socially distancing as well as different filming practices.

Although this season might look a little different, things are still heating up to be tough competition on the dance floor. Here are my top five contestants to keep your eye on as this season progresses.

1. Skai Jackson

For me, Skai Jackson was a standout after the first night of performances. At first, I was a little hesitant about this choice due to her age. While she and her partner might have a substantial age gap, they did not let this stop them. Skai even managed to score the first seven of the night.

2. Justina Machado

You might know her from "One Day at a Time" right now, but by the end of the season, you'll definitely remember her killer dance moves.

On Monday, Justina performed the Cha Cha with her partner, Sasha. Their performance was fun to watch and made everyone at home want to get up to dance. I am excited to see what the season holds for this pairing.

3.​​ Nev Schulman

When I first heard about this pairing, I did not think I would love it as much as I do. Nev and Jenna had a beautiful foxtrot that exuded vintage romance. I can't wait to see what they bring to the dance floor next.

4. Kaitlyn Bristowe

A fan favorite following the first night of performances was Kaitlyn Bristowe. Kaitlyn is no stranger to ABC and was formerly on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."

On the first night, Kaitlyn and her partner, Artem, danced a fun Cha Cha. After her performance, fans took to Twitter to express their support for their star and to encourage others to vote for her next week.

5. Anne Heche

Another fan favorite of the night included Anne Heche. For many viewers, what made this performance is that they had no prior knowledge of Anne was. They genuinely loved her performance and I have to agree.

She did a wonderful job. You can tell that she was there to have fun and that is exactly what she did.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
