Who is Kyle Massey? The young Disney Channel star is perhaps the most surprising contestant to join the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 cast.
Rumors swirled for weeks about who would be doing the samba across TV sets. Almost every other contestant had been leaked to the press -- including Bristol Palin, arguably the biggest tabloid target of the season -- but Massey remained the unnamed contestant.
The 19-year-old Disney Channel star got his start on the Raven-Symone sitcom 'That's So Raven.' He played Raven's brother Cory for 100 episodes.
After the series ended, his character was spun-off as the star of his own show, 'Cory in the House.' The new series followed Massey's character, who moved from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. with his father, the new White House chef.
Massey is the youngest member of the 'Dancing' cast, having turned 19 on Aug. 28. He follows in the footsteps of fellow Disney Channel stars Sabrina Bryan and Cody Linley.
