New Cast for 'Dancing With the Stars' Revealed
The celebrity cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 10 has been announced. ABC wisely trimmed the cast down from 16 to 11. Hopefully this will get rid of the unnecessary double eliminations.
On paper, this season's cast feels like the celebrities have a higher caliber. They are at least closer to B-listers than just washed-up celebrities. This balances out the reality TV stars that stretch the definition of "Star." I have come to terms with the fact that Kate Gosselin will end up on my television in one way or another with the excuse that she's doing it for her kids. The full list after the jump.
Obviously, ABC and Disney have loaded several names that go back to their own franchises (Erin Andrews, Aiden Turner and Jake Pavelka). Even Niecy Nash was a voice on the Disney film 'G-Force.' I don't expect them to go that far, since their fanbases are a bit smaller than the other celebrities. Also, will Jake's selection on 'The Bachelor' create backlash?
We are provided one ringer: Nicole Scherzinger. Not only is she better trained in learning choreography than Mya or Mel. B, Nicole is also adjusted to having cameras thrust in her face. She originally was on the reality show 'Popstars' and was a judge on the NBC show 'The Sing-Off.'
