Boy bander joins ‘DWTS’: Carlos Penavega

Published: August 29, 2015

Boy bander joins ‘DWTS’: Carlos Penavega, Dancing With The Stars has had plenty of rivalries between celebrities over its 20 past seasons, but the upcoming episodes will feature a new twist on competition.

Married couple Alexa and Carlos PenaVega, 27 and 26, respectively, will be competing against each other in season 21 this fall.

One day after their participation was announced, the happy couple arrived together at the DWTS studios for rehearsal.

Both husband and wife seemed dressed appropriately for some dance training.

In Carlos’ case, the Big Time Rush singer wore a charcoal tank top with a pair of baggy, black trousers.

Black trainers finished off his casual look.

Alexa opted for a bit more colour in her outfit, wearing rainbow-coloured leggings with a black top.

Blue-and-orange trainers went well with the leggings, while a backpack and several bottles of water allowed for practicality.

The couple – both of whom were child actors able to keep their careers going into adulthood – married in January 2014 in Mexico.

Their participation on Dancing With The Stars was announced a little unconventionally, via the dance competition’s Instagram account.

DWTS posted several shots of Alexa and Carlos visiting Disneyland on Thursday – which was also Alexa’s birthday – using captions to share the news.

‘Say hello to married couple @therealcarlospena & @alexavega who will both be sharing the dance floor together this season!’ read the caption to a photo showing Alexa and Carlos in front of the famous Disney castle.

Other images found the two visiting rides and attractions throughout the park.

While the official and final line-up of celebrities for season 21 has not been confirmed by ABC, several other Dancing With The Stars cast members took in rehearsals on Friday.

One of them was 17-year-old Bindi Irwin, the young nature-TV star and actress who is also the daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

Wearing a practical T-shirt and knee-length leggings, Bindi flashed an excited smile as she headed in to practice her moves.

Another young star for the season – 15-year-old Hayes Grier – made it to rehearsals as well.

The YouTube and Vine star wore a simple grey T-shirt with off-white exercise trousers for his practice session.

Professional dancers Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Sharna Burgess, and Val Chmerkovskiy were spotted too, getting ready to whip their stars into shape.

One of them, however, made a little time for personal matters.

Witney, 21, was spotted in the parking lot with her boyfriend, Carson McAllister, sharing a hug and some intense conversation.

While not seen at rehearsals yet, other stars reported to be joining in season 21 of Dancing With The Stars include Nick Carter, Victor Espinoza, Paula Deen, and Chaka Khan.
