Early on Friday, ABC announced the new 12 contestants for its new season of Dancing with the Stars. And boy, does this season promise to be one of the most anticipated and star-filled yet!
Already in its 15th season, Stars has decided to re-invigorate and redesign itself in order to retain its already extensive national audience and—potentially—entice new viewers. Any diehard reality-show fan can tell you what that means…
Yes, ABC had decided to follow in the footsteps of other reality shows (Survivor, Big Brother, Project Runway, etc.) and throw former contestants back onto the dance floor one more time.
Prepare yourself for some controversy and serious dancing this season! The cast includes Bristol Palin, Kirstie Alley, Gilles Marini, Melissa Rycroft and Pamela Anderson. These fan favorites are joined by Olympic athletes Apolo Ohno and Shawn Johnson—clever timing there, ABC.
Former DWTS champs Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith, and Helio Castroneves are also back seeking another win.
That leaves one spot! And this time, America gets to choose! The final all-star will be chosen by the audience and announced during the first episode. You can choose between fashionista Carson Kressley, Disney channel star Kyle Massey, and actress-singer Sabrina Bryan. You can cast your vote. Voting ends August 24th at noon.
Personally, I’m hoping for a dance-off between former 1990s boy band rivals Drew Lachey of 98 Degrees and N*Sync’s Joey Fatone, but who knows what to expect with this cast?
The new season is scheduled to premiere on Monday, September 24th at 8 p.m.
