'Dancing with the Stars' poll: Which cast member has you most excited (or filled with dread)?
ABC announced the 11 celebrity contestants for season 10 of Dancing with the Stars last night, (read my instant-react post here) and it seems like the craziest group yet. An 80-year-old astronaut performing the jive?! Kate Gosselin? A Pussycat Doll finally embarking on the solo career she always wanted…with a professional ballroom dance partner? The freakin’ Bachelor? My head, which has since last night’s announcement developed a slight disco-ball sheen (I call it Stage 1 of Mirrorballification), is spinning. After the jump, vote for the contestant most likely to get you on board for this twice-yearly mess — and who’s most likely to turn you off.
UPDATE: ABC has announced the celebrity/pro pairings for season 10! They are…
‘DWTS’: THE SEASON 10 COUPLES
Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska
Buzz Aldrin and Ashly Costa (formerly DelGrosso)
Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke
Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya
Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower
Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani
Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough
Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel
Pam Anderson and DWTS newcomer Damian Whitewood
Shannen Doherty and Mark Ballas
Buzz Aldrin and Evan Lysacek (pictured above) have me the most intrigued, with Chad Ochocinco, Shannen Doherty, and Niecy Nash (Will she “Bam!” Louis Van Intensité on a regular basis? She better.)fleckle-ing close behind. I’m looking forward to seeing whether Evan can cope emotionally when faced with the prospect of wearing less sequins on TV than usual…
Your thoughts, DANCMSTRs?
