It's been suggested that Hough might get added to the judging panel, or co-host DWTS with the show's new host, Tyra Banks. Hough spoke out last month about longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews' exit from the show, sharing that he feels "optimistic" about Banks taking their place. Regardless of what Hough will be doing on the show, fans are excited that he's coming back to the ballroom!
