'DWTS': Sizing Up Season 13's Cast!
Star quality: Child of Sonny and Cher, transgender advocate, subject of Emmy-nominated documentary Becoming Chaz
Chaz says: ''I've danced with my girlfriend at, like, a wedding,'' Chaz remembers. ''I tried to lead her and it was fine....but my girlfriend's a really horrible dancer.''
Star quality: Outspoken legal commentary, host of show on HLN
Nancy says: ''I'm very concerned about what my feet are gonna do. I wear cowboy boots and flat shoes. Always. My main goal is not to fall. They don't teach dancing in law school, honey.''
Star quality: Star of original Hairspray, former and future talk show host
Ricki says: Yes, she danced on The Corny Collins Show, but ''I was 18 years old, it was 1988, I was 200 pounds. I assure you I do not have an edge here.'' So what will help her stand out? ''I bring personality with a capital P,'' said the actress inspired by Kirstie Alley's transformation in season 12. ''I'm used to doing live TV.''
Star quality: Reality show appearances as younger brother of Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe
Rob says: He joined the competition to get in better shape. ''I try and look at this as just having fun. I'm not gonna kill myself over this.''
Star quality: Actor (Scream), marriage to — and split from — Courteney Cox
David says: ''I definitely am gonna embrace the sparkles. I love when people dress in theme, like, tandemly. I will go insane. Classical night? Let's do this. I'll go to, like, Paul Smith and find some English bespoke suit.''
Star quality: Pro basketball player
Ron (who, come Nov. 16, will be known as Metta World Peace) says: ''I'm gonna wear sequins and a jockstrap. That'd be perfect.''
Star quality: MTV's The Hills and Laguna Beach
Kristin says: ''The heels that they have for us are so much shorter than the ones I'm used to. I'm like, this is easy.''
Star quality: All My Children actor
J.R. says: ''Respect, Cameron [Mathison, his fellow AMC star who finished fifth in season 5]. You're a great guy, but I'm goin' for the whole thing. Inside of me, it's burning.''
Star quality: Goalie for U.S. Women's National Soccer Team
Hope says: Think her athleticism gives her an edge? ''I am so stiff, I can barely even walk in heels. I am about to make a fool out of myself.''
Star quality: Actress (Leverage), dated George Clooney
Elisabetta says: ''The dance I like better — not do better but like better — is the Argentine tango. Sort of passionate, sexy... I like it!
Star quality: Singer with Wilson Phillips; married to William Baldwin
Chynna says: ''I think I might have an advantage because I've never seen the show. I don't have to get my panties all in a twist. I can just show up, have fun, and do what's in front of me.''
Star quality: Fashion expert seen on Queer Eye, How to Look Good Naked, and now Carson Nation [Carson was unable to attend the cast introduction.]
