DWTS Season 10--Cast Changes, celeb rumors?


Well-Known Member
It's bad enough when a reality show gives someone their 15 minutes of fame. I'm really tired of other reality shows turning their 15 minutes into 30 or an hour.
A motley dance crew announced for DWTS 10 ... any celeb you are really happy to see and any you'd rather not be there?

Am most keen to see Chad Ochocinco put his money moves where his mouth is.

My early fav to win is Erin Andrews as she was a dancer growing up and she is still very fit. Can see her and her pro partner being the ones to beat right off the bat.

I think Evan can do quite well. Many ice dancers take dance classes. The dance can also improve his routines, I would think. I am curious about this one.

Evan's not an ice dancer. He's a singles skater. ("Ice dancer" is a specific discipline, not a general term for figure skaters.) And I would bet no matter what he says now, future competitive routines are not an issue--he's got Olymipc gold and his world title from last year and a coach with maybe one more Olympic cyclce left (during which he'll likely focus on Mirai.) But he does have a contract with Stars On Ice...or maybe he can take up ice dance if he finds a girl tall enough!

I have to wonder how Evan will do. He has the hair down, for a start! But he's not known for being especially graceful or balletic. (I'm fine with that, I prefer men to skate like men. Though not like scarecrows with pelvic thrusts, yes, Plushenko, I am looking at YOU.) He is also VERY tall for a skater. Not that I don't know tall ballroom dancers, and it's certainly easier if it's the lead who's tall, but we'll see. One thing he defintely has is a serious work ethic. DWTS will probably be like a vacation!

And even if he is 80, I'm rather anxious to see how "Dr. Rendezvous" does as a dancer! Is Buzz going to be the oldest contestant ever?

And I'm starting the campaign now--Kate Gosslein, first to go home!
Here are the pairings:

Buzz Aldrin - Ashley Costa
Pamela Anderson - Damian Whitewood
Erin Andrews - Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Shannen Doherty - Mark Ballas
Kate Gosselin - Tony Dovolani
Evan Lysacek - Anna Trebunskaya
Niecy Nash - Louis Van Amstel
Chad Ochocinco - Cheryl Burke
Jake Pavelka - Chelsie Hightower
Nicole Scherzinger - Derek Hough
Aiden Turner - Edyta Sliwinska

Tony, I love you, but you are not getting my votes this time. Sorry.

And apparently, the producers are out to get Mark.

Ashley's back?
actually most figure skaters do take ballet... so even though evan may not be experienced in partnering (like an ice dancer would), he might have some dance background. In general, it takes a lot of body awareness to even be able to stand up on the ice so I think that Evan might be quite good at dancing. He definitely has the work ethic!! still bummed we will not see him at worlds.. oh well, his life, not mine. I will look forward to seeing him on DWTS.

Derek always seems to get paired with the hot babes. And Nicole should be a good dancer coming from PCD.... they might be very good together.
