    Dancing With The Stars!

    The lineup has been announced:

    Three athletes, a magician and an Oscar-winning actress are just some of the celebrities who’ve signed on to compete on the sixth season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
    The cast was revealed on Monday night’s Dance War finale. On Tuesday, Good Morning America will announce which pro dancers will be paired with the celebrity contestants.
    Here’s a rundown of who’s on board for the March 17 premiere:
    Telenovela star Cristian de la Fuente

    R&B singer Mario

    Magician Penn Gillette

    Actor Steve Guttenberg

    Olympic Gold Medal Figure Skater Kristi Yamaguchi

    Former tennis pro Monica Seles

    NFL Player Jason Taylor

    Actress Shannon Elizabeth

    Radio/TV personality Adam Carolla

    Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur

    Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin

    Actress Priscilla Presley



    The announcement comes after months of media leaks on the Web. But still, there are some surprises, including Presley and current Miami Dolphin star Taylor — who told PEOPLE days before the announcement that he hadn’t informed his coaches or his teammates of his off-season endeavor.
    “I’m going to turn off my text-messaging and my cell phone,” said Taylor in anticipation of a likely onslaught of ribbing from his colleagues.
    Not that Dancing is for slouches. As earlier contestants can attest, the schedule is both mentally and physically demanding.
    Half of the contestants will perform live on the March 17 premiere, and the other half will perform their first dances on Tuesday, March 18.
    On March 24, the entire cast will perform a second dance. After the judges’ scores are combined with the popular fan vote for both weeks, two celebrities will be eliminated on the March 25 results show.

    It will be interesting to see Marlee Matlin does - since she's deaf.

    Other than that, I don't know if anyone else excites me.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Re: Dancing With The Stars!

    At least I've heard of all of them except these two: Radio/TV personality Adam Carolla, Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur.

    I was thinking the same thing about Marlee. I was also thinking that this was another rating gimmick, like the legless Heather Mills.

    Adam Carolla was the co-host of the Man Show a few years ago. He also does some voice work, like Death on Family Guy. He has a radio show too.

    Thanks for posting I was wondering who was going to be on it this season. I hope this is more interesting than the last. I skipped last season.

    Re: Dancing With The Stars!

    I have never been interested in this show and just don't get the appeal. BUT...Adam Corolla? I luv him, he may actually get me to watch, just to see what he'll be up to. I also love Shannon Elizabeth.

    I might just have to watch this one...

    Re: Dancing With The Stars!

    They have announced who is dancing with who:

    The twelve celebrity dancers stepping into the ballroom on season six of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars found out who their professional partners will be on Good Morning America Tuesday. The announcement was made live on the morning telecast, a day after the celebrity cast was revealed on Monday night’s Dance War finale.
    Notably absent from the pro list is fan favorite and two-time finalist Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who confirmed to PEOPLE Saturday that he was taking this season off. New to the cast is Chmerkovskiy’s pal, mambo champion Fabian Sanchez. Returning favorites this season are two-time DWTS champs Cheryl Burke and Julianne Hough, as well as Edyta Sliwinska, the only pro to compete in all six seasons of the show.


    Here’s the lineup of who’s paired with whom:
    Olympic Gold Medal skater Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas
    Actress Priscilla Presley and Louis van Amstel
    NFL star Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska
    Actor Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke
    R&B singer Mario and Karina Smirnoff (pictured above)
    Oscar-Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin and Fabian Sanchez
    Illusionist Penn Jillette and Kym Johnson
    TV and Radio Personality Adam Carolla and Julianne Hough
    Actress Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough
    Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony Dovolani
    Former Tennis Champ Monica Seles and Jonathan Roberts
    Actor Steve Guttenberg and Anna Trebunskaya

    The cast all met for the first time in Chicago on Tuesday to tape a special DWTS-themed episode of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, which will air on Thursday, Feb. 21. Joining the new cast on Oprah will be previous Dancing winners Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith and Helio Castroneves.

    Re: Dancing With The Stars!

    I could not believe Priscilla Presley wanted to do this! It just seems way too gimicky for her. So I am interested in seeing how that goes and whether they continue to pepper her with Elvis references, as they did during the "reveal".

    I'm also really excited that Kristi Yamaguchi is going to be on. I think she will do great.

    I can't imagine Penn or Adam really taking this seriously, but they should be fun to watch.

    How fast did Shannon Elizabeth's career go from white-hot in American Pie to Dancing with the Stars? Not even a decade.

    I know I'll watch but I'm unsure about the Celebs. Guttenberg? Whoah, we're going back in time with that one! Sucks that Maksim is not in it this year.

    There were a few I had to google but then went, "I know that person, I love him/her!"

    Kristi - I think she should do well with her skater background.
    Priscilla - Her face kinda scares me. LOL (No offense to Elvis fans.)
    Jason - Not a football fan, we shall see.
    Cristian - Only knew him from Ugly Betty, otherwise, no idea.
    Mario - Eh.
    Marlee Martin - Can't WAIT to see how she does. I admire her as an actress.
    Penn - LOVE him, afraid this might be a train wreck though.
    Adam - Who? Oh, obnoxious guy, right, no thanks. LOL
    Shannon - Poor girl really needs this show, I hope she does well.
    Marissa - Can't wait to see what she does.
    Monica - Not a sports person so I have no idea who she is.
    Steve - LOVED HIM! I had a crush on him back in Police Academy days. I hope he does well. :/

    None of those names excite me which is sad. Though I'll still watch.

    Re: Dancing With The Stars!

    I'm taking Cheryl Burke and Christian 'latin lover' de la Fuente to be in the top two - who's going to win is really a crap shoot - I only see MAYBE just maybe two that would be any good or even fun to watch - oh well - probably too soon to get celebs after the last one - it's all B listers - well I guess it's always been B-listers LOL
