Dancing With the Stars Contestants Announced

Last night ABC filled some air time on Dance Wars by announcing this year's new dancer wannabes. So look who's caught dance fever!

Deaf actress Marlee Matlin. What an interesting choice. She has an irritating in your face personality, but she'll probably be the one to watch.

Elvis ex Priscilla Presley. Great, an opportunity to compare her facelift photos, and you know how I love those! Have you noticed her cheeks?

Penn Jillette, crabby magician/debunker. Probably this season's Wayne Newton, right?

Adam Carolla, ex-"The Man Show"/radio big-mouth, but I don't know him from Adam. Pun intended.

Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic skating star. Can you say unfair advantage? Always exciting to watch on the ice, but what will she do on land?

NFL hottie Jason Taylor. The Miami Dolphins defensive end will definitely look good in the costumes.

Tennis (ex-)star Monica Seles. Am I the only one who thinks she looks like Tanya Harding?

Marissa Jaret Winokur, Broadway's "Hairspray." Here again, she can already sing and dance.

Steve Guttenberg, "Three Men and a Baby." Oh brother. Battle of the 80s has beens anyone?.

R&B singer Mario. Don't recognize him.

Shannon Elizabeth. Who?

Christian De La Fuente. Chilean born telenovela heart throb. Who?

Seriously, how do they get some of these people to agree? Does it pay that well? Does it benefit their careers? I was embarrassed for Wayne Newton last year.
The dancing competition is set to begin with a live performance March 17 on ABC.

I'm going to come up with my own cast of Dancing With the Stars, and it will consist of Molly Ringwald, Sally Kellerman, Sylvester Stalone and Tom Wopat. Oh, and Harry Connick Jr. Would you watch?


  1. Cheryl I would watch and it would be better people then they have for this year. I usually always watch but I am not sure I will hang on this time. I went to the Omaha showing of dancing with the stars and I was not that happy it was not like on TV. As far as Wayne Newton he can sign but that is even getting shaky but forget the dancing. Just my opinion.

  2. I would like to see John Stewart dancing with the stars.
