The Real Reason Dancing With the Stars Pros Leave the Show

Unlike past seasons, viewers will have to tune in to the season premiere to find out which celebrities are competing for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy. 

In July, longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced their departure from Dancing With the Stars. After Banks stepped into the role, she promised major shakeups in store. 

"We're doing all this crazy stuff," the supermodel dished on GMA, "taking it into the next level, but still keeping the stuff that we know America loves. But you need to get ready because it's going to be different."

Dancing With the Stars season 29 premieres Monday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
