    Rumors are that Valerie Harper is doing it, and has been partnered with Tristan. Which should be interesting as she was given three months to live six months ago (she has terminal brain cancer.)

    Haven't even heard of half of them. Meh.

    I thought they'd pair Valerie with Tony. He seems to get the early-departers, though Tristan has drawn the short straw quite a bit too.

    Don't get me wrong - I love Valerie. I watched Rhoda way back when. I'm thrilled that she is in "remission". But realistically, this competition kicks healthy people's butts, so can she handle it?

    Hope John Stamos can bring it. He's turned into a bit of a George Clooney, looking even better with age :D

    OTOH, is she likely to have any other chance to do it?

    I hope she does really well and doesn't sail through purely on sympathy votes.
    Somehow I doubt she's the whiney complainey type. Clearly she has a strong will.

    Most of these have been in the rumor mill for some time, but of course we won't see the official list until it's announced on the 4th. This list contains 9 ladies and only 4 gents, rather unbalanced, so it's probably not the final roster.

    I wonder who Leah will get partnered with. I have no idea of her dancing abilities.

    I hope Valerie can hang in there for a while and puts in a good showing. She could certainly be inspirational.

    Snooki might even be fun. I see her being paired with Mark.

    I had always heard that Jamie Lee Curtis, while liking the show, didn't really want to complete. Maybe she's changed her mind.

    Let's see if Jack can get as big a boost from the show as his sister did!

    It will be interesting to see how Elizabeth Berkley does. We haven't really seen her much for a while.

    Oh, dear God, please no!!!

    Valerie Harper, Tristan MacManus
    Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Sasha Farber
    Leah Remini, Tony Dovolani
    Corbin Blue, Karina Smirnoff
    Brant Daugherty, Peta Murgatroyd
    Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Valentin Chmerkovskiy

    Christina Milan, Mark Ballas
    Bill Nye, Tyne Stecklein
    Amber Riley, Derek Hough
    Jack Osbourne, Cheryl Burke
    Bill Engvall, Emma Slater

    I'm surprised that I actually know who quite a few of these people are!

    Hopefully this is the start of a trend and we'll be able to get Neil deGrasse Tyson on next season.

    I hope he does well, but he is getting older now. But, then again, if his fan base is big enough he could make the finals.

    I hope Bill Engvall does well, but not because of him. I met Emma Slater on my cruise and I want to see how she does.;)

    Ahhh Bill Nye! I'm confused because I thought they wouldn't have him because of his Lindy background but so happy they did!

    According to wikipedia "he was active in dance, in styles including jazz, ballet, Afro-Caribbean, and Ballroom Latin" while attending college at Harvard.

    Works for me. He wouldn't be the first ringer they've had on the show.
