Hmm... how do they keep getting all these people to do this show?

What's weird is that Nancy O'Dell has also hosted "Nashville Star", as well as Jewel.

How is it even fair to have Shawn Johnson go against all these others? I imagine her body control is far superior to everybody else's, even the professional dancers.

They should have gotten Chris "Party Boy" Pontius. He's quite the dancer.

My guess is that Wozniak will be the first to go.

Overall, the list is better than I would have expected. I was expecting Pia Zadora and the ghost of Charles Nelson Reilly.

That was my first thought as well.

I'm not seeing anyone that jumps out as an odds on favorite.

Hmm... wonder if Julianne will partner with her boyfriend or sit this one out?

Cast list is better than expected, I actually recognize all the names except for Gilles Marini.

For me, the biggest name is Denise Richards, but she seems like an afterthought on the DWTS cast articles.

God I hate Denise Richards. What an outright virulently arrogant woman.

At least I have actually heard of most of these people this season. Usually it's a few people I have heard of plus a bunch of athletes and ABC soap stars.

I have only not heard of 3 of these people: Gilles Marini, Ty Murray, and Lawrence Taylor.

Excited to see Belinda Carlisle.

When I looked at this list my first though was that she's just on there to be kicked off the first week. She'd have to be an amazing dancer to last beyond an elimination or two.

Wozniak will probably be the worst but he could last a bit if he manages not to act too arrogant.

I didn't know Shawn was a girl.

Haven't heard much about Denise Richards lately.

I like LT. Wonder who will be his partner.

I'm still in shock about lil Kim.

I'm excited to see Belinda, but probably for different reasons than yours.

Lawrence Taylor - do a youtube search for "lawrence taylor joe theisman" and you'll be grossed out by what turns up.

Let's not get crazy! Although I actually know who each one of these people are this time around.

Still, it's a step up from SNL. Their host last week was literally "Some guy who was in Wedding Crashers".

Hey, he was on Alias for quite awhile.


So does the girl who draws the shortest straw get paired up with Wozniak? Has anyone of his "shape" been on this show before? No one comes to mind. Hopefully he can last long enough to do a double Segway dance with his partner.
