Dancing with the Stars cast announced

Let’s get ready to Taaaannnngooooo!

Cheryl and ABC's Dancing is backLast night on “Dance War”, ABC unveiled the cast of the next “Dancing with the Stars”.  As usual, it’s a mixed bag of actors, athletes and personalities most of whom will leave the average viewer saying, “who?”

Let’s take a look.

  • Talk show host / comedian Adam Carolla
  • International film and TV star Cristian de la Fuente
  • Actress/model Shannon Elizabeth
  • Actor Steve Guttenberg
  • R&B/Pop singer and actor Mario
  • Actress Marlee Matlin who has been deaf since infancy
  • Illusionist Penn Jillette
  • Actress and producer Priscilla Presley
  • Tennis champ Monica Seles
  • NFL’s Man of the Year Jason Taylor
  • Broadway actress Marissa Jaret Winokur
  • Ice skating Olympic Gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi 

My money is on Priscilla Presley or Marissa Jaret Winokur.  Skater Yamaguchi has the flow and dance background, but I don’t think she has the stage presence to take the win.  In the men, I’d go for Latin star Cristian de la Fuente – he’s one hot cookie!
