Apparently people still watch this show! “Dancing with the Stars” is back yet again for a 12th season – this time around with a former Playboy model, a human Jenny Craig product placement, the original “Karate Kid”, and that blonde girl from the Jonas Brothers show that got cancelled after two terrible seasons. Yay!
Just six months after the 11th season ended, the line-up of celebrity stars for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars” has been released. The list includes:
Chris Jericho – A professional wrestler, credited as the first undisputed champion in the WWF
Kristie Alley – An actress, who is currently filming her own reality TV show “Kristie Alley’s Big Life” for A&E.
Mike Catherwood – A radio host, a.k.a. “Psycho Mike”, from KROQ-FM and the co-host of “Loveline”.
Romeo – A rapper and actor, formerly known as “Lil’ Romeo”.
Sugar Ray Leonard – A retired professional boxer, who won world titles in five weight divisions in his time.
Ralph Macchio – An actor, most famously known for his role as Daniel LaRusso in the “Karate Kid” series.
Chelsea Kane – Formerly known as Chelsea Staub, this actress is best known for her role as “Stella” on the Disney show “JONAS”.
Petra Nemcova – A Czechoslovakian supermodel, who was injured in the 2004 tsunami in Thailand and lost her fiancé-at-the-time to the disaster.
Hines Ward – An NFL football player who is currently the wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steeler’s.
Kendra Wilkinson – A model and reality-star, most commonly known from the E! series “The Girls Next Door.”
Wendy Williams –An author and host of the talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show”.
Honestly, does this line-up have what it takes to make people watch this upcoming season? After all the drama caused by the ever-entertaining Bristol Palin, one can only hope! As long as Kristie Alley doesn’t turn it into another Jenny Craig commercial or reality show about her oh-so-hard life, people might actually watch the first episode for kicks. And hey, at least on this show she’ll have a few viewers!
The real question is, with 11th-season-champion Jennifer Grey’s big shoes to fill, which of these celebrities will have what it takes to bring the trophy home?
Are you going to watch this season? Which star are you most excited to see ballroom dance?
