You can read who’s gonna be a contestant on the show below.February 24, 2012 at 10:43 pm #240253
Lol Sasha you already beat me to the punch lol. As for the first three names that have been confirmed I’m so happy to not see a damn Kardashian or anyone from “The Hills” lol. Also here’s who I THINK will round out the cast based on rumors.
Males: Vince Young (Athlete), Sig Hansen “Deadliest Catch” (Reality Star), Pee Wee Herman (Nostaglia Slot), Gavin DeGraw (singer slot) and Ryan O’Neal (Former A-List/Older Guy Slot)
Females: Paula Deen (Older female star slot), Lara Spencer “Good Morning America” (News reporter slot) & Stacey Dash (Actress, token Sexy star slot).
Like I said i’m not for sure as to how true those are but I wouldn’t be suprise to see a good number of them included this go around.February 25, 2012 at 5:56 am #240254
I’d absolutely love to have Stacey Dash on the show. I’ve seen her Playboy photoshoot and the woman is gorgeous! Such a beautiful body. She’d look fantastic in those skimpy costumes that show put on ladies. I wish Nancy O’Dell would agree again to do the show. I have a feeling she’d be the one to beat. For me the best cast was season 10. I know they will never top that bunch but this one is loooking quite good.February 25, 2012 at 1:01 pm #240255
I thought Sherri said on The View that she couldn’t do the show because it was based in LA and The View broadcasted from New York?February 25, 2012 at 2:38 pm #240256
Damn, so Maria Menounos will be the Model/Hot chick/Anchor slot then lol. Hopefully Stacey Dash is cast. There’s also a rumor that Chelsea Kane’s former JONAS cast member Nicole Anderson might be joining the cast. I really hope that she isn’t cast, but we haven’t heard who would fit the “young Disney star”.February 27, 2012 at 6:08 pm #240257
Queen of Jordan coming to DWTS made this a must watch for me.February 27, 2012 at 9:41 pm #240258

You bitch! You beat me to it! I absolutely adore this cast. Only five white people in it. Love it! I think they’re not gonna get former A- and B-list stars annymore like they used to in past seasons but I like those C- and D-listers. I really like them. William Levy and Donald Driver are quite hot so I hope to see them taking their shirts off a lot! Oh, and I have a feeling Sherri Sheperd will be the first black woman to win this competition! Poor Maks if his little brother will be Mirrorball Trophy winner before him. lolFebruary 28, 2012 at 8:45 am #240260
LOL. Yeah Sasha this can go in so many directions. You think Sherri will make it all the way to the finals???? Just based on first impressions I think the top 6 will consist of:
-Donald Driver, Maria Menounos, Sherri Shepherd, Roshon Fagan, Jaleel White & Jack Wagner.February 28, 2012 at 9:04 am #240261
Sherri has a huge fanbase and I think that’s what will care her to finals. If she can win I don’t know but her fanbase is huge enough to get her at least to semi-finals. I like your TOP6 although I think we might be in quite a shock during the show. If Maria’s gonna laugh a lot then she has my vote. She has hilarious laugh. lol For a change I’d like to see a woman win this season. Oh, and does Donal has a huge following? Because if footballer is dancing at least adequatly they always make TOP3 and becomes frontrunner to win.February 28, 2012 at 9:10 am #240262
Well Donald is a pretty popular football player with a great attitutde as well. I wonder how far Gladys will go? Who do you think will be the first one to be eliminated? I know Cheryl’s partner will definitely have to make a great first impressions week one or he’s toast.February 28, 2012 at 9:20 am #240263
Gladys and Martina are the most famous ones. Martina might go far or ends up as Martina Hingis in british version of the show (she went home first). That’s the case with female athletes. Gladys has a fanbase to take her to 3rd or 4th week. After that if she can’t dance then she’s gone. And you underestimates William Levy. He’s a handsome man and women might vote for him on that alone. Honestly I have no idea who will be going home first but I might bet it’s gonna be one of the ladies. Just a hunch. But which one I have no idea.February 28, 2012 at 9:22 am #240264

Well… William Levy (Cheryl’s partner) is a pretty big star in Latin America as well as within the latin comunity in America. His last telenovela did huge numbers for Univision last year with an avarage of 4.5 to 5 million viewers (and a 2.4 rating).
I’m curious if his latin fanbase will pick their phones and vote for him…February 28, 2012 at 9:27 am #240265
See William Levy will be a darkhorse. If he can dance like Cheryl’s previous partners with little name recognition (Cristian de la Fuente & Gilles) than he will no doubt be in the semi-finals at least. His looks alone will keep him in for the first few weeks.March 2, 2012 at 9:47 pm #240266
I am loving the cast this season!
#1 The guys are all HOT and can all DANCE! Jaleel showed how good he can be in Ce Lo’s Cry Baby video. Roshon has some sick moves on Youtube. William Levy is sex on a stick and hopefully has that Latin Soul! Donald Driver could be another Hines Ward he has some good celebratory NFL wide receiver dances. Gavin will be interesting too haha!
I love me some Sherri Shepherd. And Gladys is a living legend as is Martina! Maria M seeing she’s paired with Derek will probably be the top female because Derek always gets them!
My guess at the most vulnerable who will probably go first are-
Jack Wagner- like Hasselhoff he may be a little too washed up to make it far, he’ll likely be the weakest male, and do Soap Opera stars even have a fan base anymore lol? They are all getting cancelled!
Katherine Jenkins- she was the only one I’ve never heard of. She’s from Britain so her fanbase here is not huge. Unless she’s a great dancer I can’t imagine her making it far. And like with Kristin Cavallari, even if she is a solid dancer she likely won’t get the votes.
Martina Navratilova- If she is anything like Monica Seles she is toast! And Tony Dovolani IMO is the worst choreographer. Very bland choreography. He doesn’t get many good partners true but he always makes them look awful. And even when he got a good dancer last year in Chynna he still allowed her to fail.
Gladys Knight- at 67 she will likely be one of the weaker dancers, but just her sheer legend status and grace should get her a couple weeks.
Middle of the pack- Melissa Gilbert, Sherri Shepherd, Gavin DeGraw- I think they all have the fan bases and personality to last until the midway point and they should be decent enough dancing wise. If they can dance than they will be top contenders as well.
William Levy- LOOK AT HIM! I don’t even care if he can move. He is very popular in the Latin American community so I do think he has the fan base. If he can shake those hips than he will earn plenty of votes.
Donald Driver- Football players do great on this and he is very athletic.
Maria Menounos- Derek must have got her for a reason right? He always gets strong dancers. She is sexy but seems likeable and sweet so the female audience will likely accept her if she has the goods.
Roshen Fagan- good personality and has some good moves, Chelsie and him will make a good pair.
Jaleel White- Not only a crowd pleaser but showed he can dance already in Cry Baby.
That’s how I have them handicapped so far lol.
