'Dancing With the Stars' Season 11 Cast Revealed

Florence HendersonThe 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 cast was revealed in a live announcement Monday night during 'The Bachelor Pad.' Hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke revealed the female celebrities first, then the men.

The new 'DWTS' cast includes 'Brady Bunch' mom Florence Henderson, 'Baywatch' icon David Hasselhoff, 'Jersey Shore' star The Situation, NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and teen mom/political scion Bristol Palin.

'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 premieres Sept. 20 on ABC.

Bergeron did not reveal which pro dancers the celebrities would be paired up with, though the men may miss out on a chance to cha-cha with Edya Sliwinska, who reportedly quit the show.

When asked how her mother, Sarah Palin, felt about the new venture, Bristol Palin said, "She's excited for me." Will we see her mom on the sidelines? "Hopefully," she told Bergeron.

Hasselhoff, who was recently the guest of honor at a Comedy Central roast, was asked to compare the two experiences. "I think it's actually going to be harder than the [roast]," Hasselhoff joked, then added. "My two daughters love this show and they convinced me, 'Dad, you gotta go for it.'"

I think it is so funny how hard the judges have been on contestants in the past, but with Sarah's daughter it's like they are afraid to be harsh. They've batted people around and said nasty things, but when Palin dances it's like "OH, OH, COME HERE SWEETY AND LET ME GIVE YOU A HUG.......YOU'RE SO SPECIAL!!" This season proves it's all about whatever makes the ratings........I wouldn't be surprised if the producers are stirring up "white powder" incidents to keep the fire going. It's a shame what America has come to accept from the networks.

Using niecy nash on a regular basis will certainly kill the show for me. Last season, I couldn't wait till she was tossed. She is disgusting.

The liberal media is not to blame for Palin's face being plastered all over.

Sarah Palin is. It is a risk you must accept when becoming a public figure, and Sarah Palin took that risk for her family when she accepted to run as McCain's VP. She could have declined to protect her family, but no, she put herself ahead of her daughter.

Why you would run for a position with a pregnant, unwed, teenage daughter is beyond me...

My goodness! All the has-been's aboard the Dancing With The Stars Express. All those old farts, and middle-aged ones (still old) who wanna make jackasses out of themselves on a rigged pseudo-reality show! Flo Henderson isn't the lovely looking lady she once was. She used to be a real looker a hundred years ago.

I had posted earlier and my granddaughter, seeing it, called me from WSU and said, "I can't believe that you did not comment on the fact that Palin was an unwed teenage mom and you always told us that behavior was not something that you would be proud of in any of your grandchildren". That is a true statement and I will not only stop watching DWS but the majority of the ABC shows that I currently do. That is NOT a message I wish to send to my family! ABC, you need to rethink your family value issues with the programming that you have in the line up.

It is amazing how this show has really taken a 'dive' from when it originated. Then, there was dancing! from celebrities. Poor Henderson, she certainly has the heart for this but the stamina of such gruling hours of workouts? Kurt....YOU are the star of this year's show! Unfortunately, I find the majority of the others in the lineup too distasteful to watch. ABC, your programming needs to revamped.

Bristol Palin needs to go to College and quit living off of her Mothers fame. If her parents were unknown she would be another unemployed welfare mom ... and eventually her 15 mins will be over so she had best save money and get a real career.
When is old Florence Henderson going to admit her real age ... she was 41 in 1966 per the BH News ... shes 85 and a WELL KNOWN rude bi*ch in person.
As for AGE, Rick Fox must be sick, because 41 looks better than that ...
Brandy ... like Bolton ... no talent.
Hoff the drunk.
I think Grey is the frontrunner ... but who cares its not worth watching.

Actually Flo Henderson was born in 1934. That makes her 76. She was 34 when she began her Carol Brady role. As for Rick Fox, he looks horrible for someone even at early middle age. Bad genes? Substance abuse? PS, I know personally that old Flo has an attitude problem.
