'Dancing with the Stars' cast revealed

The 10th edition of "Dancing with the Stars" gets under way in three weeks, and now we know who will be hoofing it up for the prestigious Mirrorball Trophy.

Pamela Anderson - the "Baywatch" babe has found some honest work.  Good for her.

Chad Ochocinco – the NFL wide receiver is known for his elaborate post-touchdown celebrations.  Perhaps he's running out of ideas, and needed to consult the history of dance for his next TD jig.

Aiden Turner - he's British, he's named Aiden, and he plays a guy named "Aidan" on the ABC soap "All My Children."  Never heard of him.

Erin Andrews - the ESPN personality hopes to last on the show longer than colleague Kenny Mayne, who was the first contestant eliminated in the early 2006 tournament.

Shannen Doherty - will the anti-Brenda fan clubs return from their slumber over this?

Buzz Aldrin - he was the second man to walk on the moon, and he's 80 years young!  I think we have our sentimental favorite for this tournament.

Niecy Nash - will she last longer here than her Fox sitcom "Do Not Disturb", which lasted all of three episodes in 2008?

Nicole Scherzinger - she fronts the Pussycat Dolls, but that group's style of dance is a tad, er, different than what's on DWTS.

Evan Lysacek - no rest for the current Olympic men's figure skating gold medalist. 

Kate Gosselin - DWTS day care services could be quite crowded come tape days.

Jake Pavelka - shouldn't he be preparing for a wedding? 

What do you think of this "Dancing with the Stars" lineup?

In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

    I enjoyed DWTS in previous seasons but am not so keen on the upcoming season after hearing that Kate Gosselin is in the lineup. I stopped watching TLC after realizing how the network and Kate scammed the viewers into believing everything was fine with the Gosselin family when the "reality" was that the family was in a crisis. Kate didn't have the decency to remove her family from the spotlight as the marriage disintegrated. TLC took advantage of the family as it kept the cameras rolling and the ratings soared as the family dissolved. Both Kate and TLC are unrelenting in keeping this family in the spotlight and its not "for the sake of the family". It's for the ratings and Kate's thirst for fame. I, too, am disappointed that ABC is now aiding and abetting TLC in trying to keep her in the public eye. Kate is not famous...she's infamous. She's achieved her notoriety because of her children not because of any discernible talent or charisma.

    These are not stars. Kate Gosslin is no more than a "wanna-be-whatever-is available" and everyone is sooooo tired of her. The promise of watching Pamela Anderson's bouncing T&A is nauseating. Niecy Nash has a sense of humor about herself and that might be fun for a show or two. I used to be an avid fan, but if this is the sponsors' and producers' idea of entertainment, I think I'll get a fish tank and a couple of bottom feeders to watch instead.

    Why is everyone bashing Kate Gosselin?? Is there a bad thing about being a working mother?? She has 8 kids to raise and by the looks of it she seems to be raising them financially by herself. You talk about how she exploited her kids but I'm sure you were one of those viewers that watched the show.
    These days it takes 2 parents to raise a family. And with 8 kids I'm sure if you were offered the opportunity she was given you'd grab it to. What's wrong with having big dreams for your kids!

    Kate Gosslin??? You have 8 children at home. From what I understand you really spend a great deal of time practicing and getting ready for performances, etc. Isn't it a 4-6 week commitment? AGAIN, you have 8 children at home. How do you have this kind of time? You've already spent time getting plastic surgery and having makeovers and possibly having a talk show, how the hell do you have any time for your kids????

    We used to be loyal watchers, but this is one household that WON'T be watching this season. Advertisers? Hear that? I've not heard of over half of the contestants, but it was putting Kate Gosselin on that sent us over the edge. The only place she's a star is in her own mind. Come on, ABC. You can do a LOT better.

    I love how people always complain about the stars who actually agree to go on national television and be publicly picked apart and made fools of. Would you do it? I doubt George Clooney or Angelina Jolie will be signing up anytime soon, sorry to disappoint everyone. A lot of those that agree to do the show usually have already had some type of public scandal or bad press, or they either just don't give a shit and need a paycheck. I'll probably watch a few episodes just to see Pam try to dance without those giant melons falling out.

    Kate is indeed a star.
    Yes, she is.
    How many times have you seen her name on this board? The term "star" has nothing to do with talent or skill. It has to do with the amount of attention that one attracts. She has attracted tremendous attention on this blog alone.
    Like it or not, she is a star. And the more you people post about her, the bigger a star she becomes. Like Obi Won kanobi, you only make her stronger when you strike her down. Every time you type her name you make her stronger.
    I am not a Kate supporter. She has no real talent. Can't stand her. But by the diminished standards of 2010 she is a star, and people will tune in to see her fail.
    And Pam and Shannen had more success in a few short years than most of you have had in your entire lives. Nothing lasts forever, and it's very easy to call them washed up when you yourself have done nothing with your lives.

    They should name this show "Dancing with the Has Beens and Losers" show. I won't watch any of it. I wouldn't consider any of these people "stars". Yet for some reason they all think pretty highly of themselves. Hope they all look like the asses they are.

    When will they get it right? The show is called Dancing with the Stars. Not dancing with the people who we could really give to sh!ts about. Chad and Buzz are the only ones who really have any kind of status behind their names...and even then...the majority of people don't know who they are.

    This will be the "Krisit Yamaguchi" season all over again. In other words, boring beyond belief with the winner all but crowned on the first episode (i.e. Evan Lysacek). Nobody will be able to compete against his already down pat performance moves and his rythm, etc.

    To say nothing of scraping the absolute bottom of the barrel with Pamela Anderson – is there a more tasteless, tacky or classless act out there? Don't they know she considers a thong with falsies to be elegant evening dress?

    Good luck in your last season, DWTS, you killed yourself.

Knowing he would be there, I had printed out a beautiful color picture of him and brought it with me. I asked for his autograph . . .

    I will have a soft spot for Evan, Buzz Aldrin, Erin Andrews and
    Lindsay Vonn. All the rest I don't really care about. Especially
    the egomanical jerk football player. One earlier post mentioned
    Mariska Hargitay. As much as I would like to see her on the show,
    her schedule on SVU would make it impossible for her to do the show. ABC doesn't seem to want anybody from shows on competing
    networks and is very self promoting. The main example for this group
    being the guy from the Bachelor. People who would be considered
    more of a *star* are probably too busy to be able to do the show.

    I don't get all the whining on this board about the line up. Every year I look at it and go "who???" That' s normal. Also normal is that every year there's always someone I love to hate on it. My personal favorite in the "hoping they fail miserably" catagory this year is Pamela Anderson. Can't stand her. BUT, by the end of the season if she sticks around long enough (hopefully not) I will probably like her better because I'll actually get to see a little of her real personality. Get over the Kate Gosslin "stay home with your kids" thing. It just sound like jealousy every time I hear it. If you don't like her you don't like her but using the "mom" card to justify it is really getting old. The whole point of putting such a diverse, unknown, liked, unliked crowd together is to make the show interesting and obviously it's already garnering interest..

    I can't believe that you are supporting the 'pimping' efforts of Kate Gosslin...is she really what we now consider a 'STAR', afterall, this show started off as Dancing with the Stars...now it's Dancing with Moms who Exploit their Children....too bad, you just lost a boat load of fans...and I'm the captain of that ship!

    Will watch for Evan Lysacek and Buzz Aldrin if I have time. Except for seeing the name in the tabloids at WalMart, I don't even GET the love/hate comments about Kate. Pamela – hm. Okay. Same with Shannen. I've seen worse lineups. I know the real and current stars are all too busy for this type of show.

    What I'd REALLY like to see with this show??? How about Dancing with the Neighbors. I mean, really. The STARS don't have the time or need for this show. Instead of casting a bunch of unknowns – well, not really unknowns...it's just the most of us might know only one or two of the cast – why can't they take someone off the street? Do you know what I mean? Let's teach the regular Joe America to dance and win! But, then, I guess...who would watch it then?

    Truthfully, I just got into DWTS a few seasons ago and really enjoyed it....however, Kate Gosselin? seriously? Pam Anderson? you put them with Buzz and an Olympian....forget it. I'm done.

    Whoever thought having this line up was a good idea should be an addition to the umemployment line. bad call. really bad call.

    But thankfully, they left Octo Mom alone.

    I might watch the night one is voted off. This is, again, a bad line up. I only know 6 of the competitors. Pamela is too slutty for my taste, Shannen is too low brow, Nash is a loud mouth show off, Buzz and Evan are about the only ones I would watch. Last season was a cop out with Donny winning? He had years of dancing experience! So unfair to those with no or very little dancing backgrounds. Ozzie's daughter was a winner in my book! I won't be watching this season. Also, the constant clapping from the audience is disgraceful and rude. Tell those idiots to clap when the dancing is OVER and that goes for the entertaining singers who I couldn't hear due to constant applauding from the yo yo's in the audience. Notice how the MC's had to yell into the mikes in order to be heard by home viewers?

    as for the rest of the lineup.... i think it will be fun. lysachek is fluid on the ice, lets see if it trancends to the dance floor i wonder if pam andersons "attributes" will get in the way during close dances, one other star had that problem but still danced beautifully. aiden. ooo baby. buzz aldrin... it will be fun to see a childhood memory. i could go on but wont. there is something for everyone in this lineup i think. and it is what it is. watch or dont. thats why they made remotes.

    any one of them could be a great dancer, or become one. i just personally dislike the kate gosselin type people.

If she worked a standard job at $10-$15 hour job, would you then be happy and stop hating her?? So you just don't want her to make millions. Oh! Grow up!

    Why does Kate Gosselin continue to force herself into the "spotlight"? How often have we heard her whine about how much she dislikes the paparazzi? No privacy. Just wants to be with her kids, blah blah blah. She even goes so far as to write a book to give to her children for when they are old enough to ask questions about their childhood, the divorce, etc. So it is being published now for everyone else in the world to read? Makes sense to me. At least her kids won't have to buy a copy because every other kid in their state will have already read it and can explain to them why they are so messed up!!
    Kate here's an idea...do yourself, your kids and the rest of us a huge favor, STAY HOME. Walk away from the light.

I have never watched either one of these individuals and their appearance on DWTS may induce me to sit this season out entirely. ....When I think of all the other B-listers DWTS could have gotten instead of these two, I wonder who's running the show lately.

    A lot of you are ripping Kate Gosselin for not being a star. You don't have to like her, but to deny her a star status...did you fall asleep and not see tabloid news in 2009?...how about mainstream media news? She's been on magazine covers, her family has been the subject of evening news stories (not just E.T., but mainstream media). Every major news outlet in the country has run at least a dozen stories about her last year. THAT makes you a star. Unlike the flood of other "reality" stars out there, who NEVER get media coverage...she has. So I don't see what you're all so upset about.

    I think it's one of the best lists this show has ever had. At least I know who most of these people are (something that can't be said for most of their casts)...and they are a diverse selection. You got a famous astronaut, mega-star Pam Anderson, everyone knows Shannen Doherty the controversial tv/film star, every guy who watches college football knows Erin Andrews, you got the token NFL guy (for the guys), a day time soap star (for the housewives), a Pussycat Doll (for the younger crowd), an Olympic medalist, and a reality TV star that's topped almost every tabloid story the past year. What else could you ask for? For those of you who say, "they're not celebrities"...who do you expect to get? Tom Cruise? Michael Jordan? Oprah? Paul McCartney? Harrison Ford? Come on...this is the best you can hope for in my book.

    Pam Anderson – How will she see her feet?
    Chad – you do know that the sports figures usually do well. He definitely has the upper body strengh for the lifts.
    Aiden – who?
    Erin Andrews – dancing costumes after the comments about her "provocative" attire – right!
    Shannen – to quote Elmer Fudd, "Be afwaid! Be vewwy afwaid!"
    Buzz – GO DUDE! YOU RULE!
    Niecy – who?
    Nicole – are they gonna give her a pole?
    Evan – GO DUDE! YOU RULE ALMOST AS MUCH AS BUZZ!
    Kate – They shoulda cast Jon, too! If her dancing is as good as her parenting skills, she may make it to the 2nd show!
    Jake – Like Kate, his 15 minutes are over. Go home and let them cast some real dancers.

    This is the WORST line up ever. They literally picked from the very disgusting bottom of the barrell for part of the women. Pamela Anderson? I hope she doesn't drip her hepatitus sweat all over her partner. She is a nasty pos. Shannon Doherty? Seriously? And the uber fame wh0re Kate Gosselin? She is vile and the worst of the worst. I feel so very sorry for her 8 kids who are nothing more than accessories to her. At least they are better off w/ a team of loving and caring nannies than her cold, nasty tempered, mean, vicious, uncaring, unloving, hateful, verbally and emotionally abusive fame wh0re self. I will NOT be watching til she's gone. I despise her. She is worse than her ex.

    I like Tara's suggestions of the musicians, Joss Stone, Fiona Apple, (though I hear Jared Leto is a douche), etc. There are so many great musicians who are not busy touring or recording right now. What era were the producers born in? How about teen sensation Justin Bieber? Or some kid from a Disney Channel show? You are totally missing the chance to pull in a younger demographic.

    Everyone on here is a joke. Kate is doing what is best for her kids, working and making money. Get off it, I was raised by a nanny simply because I had two WORKING parents. Everyone that says she needs to stay home and get off tv needs to come out of the ice age. Women are allowed to work these days, not just stay home and cook, clean, do dishes, breast feed kids, etc... She has raised her kids to this point and will continue to do so. Way to go Kate, I hope you WIN! Instead of ripping her, why don't you ask where these childrens Father is...

    Looks like I'm not alone in my distaste for Kate Gosselin. Her 15 minutes surely has to be up. And if Melissa is going to be co-hosting, that will be another good reason for not watching DWTS anymore. I would say that Evan would be the best and only reason to watch, unless they pair him with a very short partner.

    I was never into DWTS but I've been interested in who they picked to be on the show. I have to say this season's line up is a dud. One football player I would probably watch the show for, is Lynn Swan, former wide receiver with the Steelers. Talk about dancing... some of his moves on the field were pure ballet - poetry in motion. Another person I wouldn't mind seeing on the show is Angela Lansbury. But if I had to pick someone to root for on this season of DWTS, it would be Buz Aldrin. As to Pamela Anderson - be prepared for multiple wardrobe malfunctions. They're going to need a lot of sticky tape to keep her chest covered up. I hope they don't have them do the jitterbug.

    Not that excited about the line-up but to be honest, I never am when it is announced. Who knew that hunky French guy before he was on this show? But he was a great dancer and really sexy! I thought the last group were really a bunch of unknowns or has beens. Unless you were a teenager, who would know Louie Vito, Aaron Carter or Mia. It was my least favorite group of all and I watch regularly. I look forward to seeing Evan and Kate G. but I'm guessing Buzz is going to be like Cloris Leachman – just too old to be really competitive.

    Why doesn't everyone start listing who they would like to see on the show? But be realistic – no real star will go on that show. Maybe people at ABC will take notice.

    I would love to see comedianne Kathy Griffen and former pro tennis player Mal Washington. How about Conan O'Brien – he is not busy right now!

    "Dancing With the Stars" is the 2010 version of "Loveboat" or "Fantasy Island"-recycling once big (?) name "stars" by providing a much-needed job and boost to their sagging careers. Pamela Anderson's boobs will probably get in her way, and she'll go first! Kate G is only famous for her publicity. Never cared for her-too much of a narcissist for my taste. Buzz Aldrin? God love him, but PLEASE! Evan is the only one with any talent, charisma, athletic grace and flexibility. I hope Evan puts the rest to shame and wins-he's HOT!

So ridiculously sad!!!!!!!! My heart truly aches for her children. How selfish can one person be?? There are plenty of jobs this woman could have that let her be there and love her children if she really wanted to. The dad has already left you dont think they need some kind of stability in their lives? WOW. But it seems to be all about image and having the best. Where is the sacrifice?...put family first, shop at goodwill and give up your spa treatments! This woman is a horrible role model of what our country thinks is important.

    I don't watch the show much, but I think the presence of Kate Gosslin will ensure I won't see it this season. The show is getting old and needs to be retired. When the dancers include people few viewers have even heard of, they are obviously scraping the bottom of the barell for competitors or else trying to launch "stars" like Paris Hilton (famous for being a celebrity). I don't think we need more Paris Hiltons. I like Evan Lysacek, but I won't watch this to see him dance. Better that there be fewer dancers than to bring in unknowns. But this show isn't meant to be dignified in any fashion, is it? We hadCloris Leachman effing her way through her stint on the show. Tacky just dived to a new low. Dancing With the Stars can't even hold up to the description of kitschy now. It's just trashy.

    Sorry BUT...who are these folks? I dare say that I could only recognize perhaps one or two names at best. It kills me how the DWTS entourage always selects at least ONE blonde bimbo extraordinaire – i.e., Pam Anderson. I guess not too many celebs want to participate anymore given the fact that for the last 4 seasons DWTS has utimately selected individuals who truly were UNDESERVING of the "mirrored-ball" trophy. If I do watch it this time around it will only be to laugh at them. WHY you may be asking???? Well, honestly the people who are selected for this season do not come accross as having any "rhythm" – at ALL!!!!. Good luck to whomever gets to drag themselves to the finals taking all the tongue-lashing from that pompous-@$$ old fart Len and Carrie-Ann Inaba. Remember her? she danced her butt off during the "In Living Color" days as a "Fly Girl" – trust me, she ain't no "Fly Girl" anymore!!!!
    I always wonder how in the hell was she selected to be a judge. The only "dancing" she ever did on the "In Living Color" show was "break-dancing. I sure as hell never-ever saw her dancing the "Waltz", "Salsa", "Fox Trot" or any of the other popular Ball room dancing that is performed on DWTS.

At best, these are people with 15 minutes of doubtful fame; at worst I have never heard of most ofthem, except Buzz Aldrin and, of course, Pamela Anderson. Seriously, who are these people and why are they considered stars? I did not think this could become a formula show, but it a young athlete or a sentimental favorite with a fan base is almost bound to win, so what's the point?

    DWTS and Idol have run their course. It was fun while it lasted but both shows have lost the "it" factor. The worst contestants that both shows have offered is solid proof of this.

    Time to start developing something new that will again take America and the world by storm.

    Wake me up when you find the next Jerry Seinfeld or Dick Van Dyke.

    Seriously – Kate Gosslin? She's so desparate to be on t.v. that she'll do anything. And why would she even be considered, she's not a celebrity or a star she's a mother of 8 kids and needs to be one. How in the world is she going to pay for people to watch her children? She's an unfit mother and only looking out for HER needs and wants and not those of her children. Go home Kate! (Out of the 11 I know of 5 and besides Kate, Jake shouldn't be on. Reality people are NOT celebrities)!!

    I think they've forgotten the name of the show. If you look at the line up and think 'Who the heck is that?' to 95% of them, then they are not considered 'stars'. People from reality shows are not 'stars' no matter what they may think. I would hazard a guess that this will be the last season if this is the best they can come up with.

    I agree that this is the worst line up to date. I do not think that people that obviously have had extensive dance or choreography experience, such as the Olympic medal winner, should be allowed to participate against contestants that have not, it's just totally unfair. This will be the first time that I will not watch the show. I think the producers need to go back to the basics that made the show interesting in the first place, having no ringers!

    I did not watch the last installment of DWTS because the lineup was so bad (especial Tom Delay), but this one is even worse. It has three people I've never heard of, at least four people I seriously do not want to see dancing, one person I wish would just disappear from the news altogether, and the others are just odd choices. The only one that would be interesting to see is Evan Lysacek, and since the Olympians always win DWTS, we pretty much know know the ending already.

    I think it's ridiculous that Kate Gosselin is going to be on this. She isn't a star. She isn't a celebrity. She's a woman who had a bunch of kids and made money off of them...it was probably her grand plan when she went for her fertility treatments.

    She's so used to being the center of attention where ever she goes. I wonder how she'll react to Pam, Nicole and Shannen getting more attention than her. She thinks she's something else but she's nothing compared to the three of them.

    I don't think I'll be able to watch this train wreck. Although, women will swoon over Aiden. If you haven't seen him, he's quite handsome.

These people are choreographed performers that are still at the top of their game....hardly fits the concept of the show where non-dancers become dancers. They should pair these two together so they don't have a "pro" helping them to handicap them. I think they'll be amazing to watch, just not in the spirit of the show.

    Why do people like Kate and Shannen keep making money for showing such conceited attitudes? Why is this country promoting people who don't care about the influence they have on young people? Why aren't they hiring people who really work hard and respect the people they work with? It's so very sad that TV tries to draw in the bad crowd for publicity instead of setting up a good group for DWTS.
    Get some hard working, kind people that we can look up to.
    Kate deserves to be working at a company like the rest of us and earning an hourly rate. She doesn't work harder than anyone else so why is she living in a million dollar home.? Because of TV ratings....so sad. People are sick of watching this when they can't pay their bills. Why don't you put Blogojevich on there, too? He needs some cash.

    I wrote when Kate Gosselin was first mentioned and said I would not watch my favorite show if she was included in the line-up. Guess I know how much that meant! The rest of the line-up I can live with; Gosselin needs to stay home and tend the children she brought into this world - maybe for a refreshing idea she could find an income that does not come from those children or the unreal life of television appearances. I'm so sick of "instant celebrities" who manage to string their 15 minutes into an interminable time span.

    Worthless except for Evan. No "stars" among them. I love Aldrin but really - an 80-year-old doing the jive and quick step? As for Kate,she craves the spotlight, desperately wants to be a "star", and was willing to use her children for exposure. Anyone who spends that kind of money on her hair when she has 8 children needs a reality check - oh wait! She already cashed those - and is looking for more. America - send her home.

    The only two who even remotely interest me are Chad Ochocinco and Shannen Doherty. If they can make it to the end, it may be worth watching... only if that awful Samantha Harris isn't around to ruin everything.

    I have always looked forward to watching Dancing With the Stars but now that I see this season's line up, I may not watch anymore. Looks like they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one! I was also very disappointed with the results of last season's results. I thought this was suppose to be a DANCE competition, not a POPULARITY contest. Donny Osmond should never have won. He was not, by any stretch, the best dancer! I didn't even think he had any fan following anymore. So let's get back to the basics and make this show what it use to be. If something isn't done soon, I'm afraid you'll be losing more than being able to get REAL CELEBRATIES.

    You can say Kate Gosselin is not a star, but then how do you explain the outlash? Her name is on these comments a million times. Like it or not, she is a star, and she was made a star by the same people that made Spencer Pratt a star, ALL OF YOU.
    A "star" of years ago and a "star" of 2010 are obviously 2 different things. Kate Gosselin was a wise casting choice as it has obviously elicited a lot of attention, albeit negative (and all of these posts in less than 10 minutes!).
    People should seriously look at their own lives before they call somedody a Has-Been. It's worse to be a Never-Was. And it is boredom with our own lives that has led to the Reality TV craze.
    Will the likes of Kate continue to be cast on DWTS? That all depends on how many of you Never-Was people change the dial.

Hope Kate goes the first week, can't stand her sour face. Hope she gets a bad partner. Pamela Anderson is a train wreck – hope she stays for a while just for comic relief. What's with the football players? They are always bad dancers, but for some reason people vote for them until the end. They don't have very many "likeable" people on this year, but this might make it better, since there won't be any "ringers" (i.e. Donny O.) Hope Shannen gets in a fight with her partner and quits, put us all out of our misery. I pity the professional dancers this year. arrgh!

    I don't think this cast is any worse than any other. I personally love Niecy Nash. I watch both of her shows. I really wish Kate Goslin would go away, but I have to say that it is really unfair to bash her for being on the show. Really? This is 2010. Women, especially divorced women, work these days to support their family. And she has a big family to support so what she does has to be bigger than most. Bashing her is like saying "Why are you commenting on CNN posts, shouldn't you be in the kitchen baking bread or cleaning?"

    Dancing with the Stars must be getting desperate. Stars? Maybe a few of these people qualify, but most are small asteroids. Are they trying to kill Buzz Aldrin? At 80, the rehearsals might kill him. Now that would be a first!! Kate Gosselin isn't a star, she gone from distressed wife to pathetic. Evan Lysacek – OK he's a star. But the rest? They're either burned out stars (?) or wannabes.

    I'll only watch for like two people, and one will definitely not make it to the top 3. I will watch just to see Buzz move around, and I may watch Evan Lysacek. That's about it. I guess for Pam and Nicole, wearing skimpy outfits, is just the norm for them, just gives them a better excuse for wearing them. As for Kate Gosselin, I truly am sick of her. Shannen Doherty's washed up. As for the rest of them, I really don't know who they are. I vaguely recall hearing about the one being on the Bachelor or something. But since I don't watch it, I couldn't tell you who it is, therefore, they're not that big a deal. Yeah it will be a dismal season. They need to do a season where they can get the ones who came in first, and let them duke it out to see who's the best (kind of like an All Stars show). My money there would be riding on Apolo Anton Ohno for the win :)

    And Pam Anderson is smarter than most people think. Don't know how well she'll do dancing-wise, but she's got some good comedic chops and might be enjoyable. Lycacek will be the ringer, but at least he's a nice guy.

    I am certainly not looking forward to seeing Kate Gosselin on the tube again but at least this time we don't have to listen to her babble too much. I am confused because I was under the notion that she was a dedicated Mother with eight children to care for and that they were her priority. I must have heard that wrong 100x when she was on every program that would have her. I also think you should re-think the "Star' part in the program's name. I thought Kate was an unemployed mother. If she dances as well as she mothers she will be voted off early so that's a plus. I wonder if she will wear her new hair? Looking forward to seeing her voted off so I will watch. If she does do well she can buy a pole and start a new career so she won't be POOR anymore.

    Pam: seeing you hang out of your outfits may be the only reason guys tune in

    Shannon: screaming fits coming our way?

    I am SO disappointed with this line up. kate gosselin is a disgrace to women! She was a horrific wife and continues to jump on the "15 minutes of fame" bus. I can't believe that ABC wanted her. Good luck to her professional dancer. The media has to quit "giving" her $7000 hair extensions and moments on the "circuit". I have ALWAYS enjoyed Dancing with the Stars, but again, STARS, not a mean reality show, celebrity wanna be! I will DVR the show, but fast forward through her. ABC, I am SO disappointed in you! I will fast forward through "The Bachelor" too. What a joke. Vienna does not belong in the front row watching him...keep these people away! Seems to me ABC is merely looking for drama. How about just a "nice" happy show like it used to be. Keep these clowns away!

    Scrapping the bottom of the barrell but a good PR move on DWTS part. Pitting Kate Gosselin against Pam Anderson. Nice move, not one comment on Pam Anderson because she's over shadowed by Kate. What were you thinking? But it's Pam's place to be, very little clothes which is her choice of waredrobe. I'm sure we are going to see more of Pam (is there anything we haven't seen?) Anderson than most of us WANT to see. I see a wardrobe malfuntion happening.... Been a watcher from the first show where Ms. Monoco won for being a bad dancer and didn't have hope it would last long. I don't think I'm going to watch much until the last 3 contestants.

She is an absolutely hateful control freak...but since the show brought in over a billion $ a year (before we all saw how she REALLY is!), TLC is doing whatever they can to keep her in the limelight!

    Kate Gosselin is just a nasty witch, which is why I stopped watching her "old" show two episodes into the first season.

    Nicey Nash is too loud for my taste.

    And Buzz? If Cloris Leachman can do the show at her age, then Aldrin can certainly do it. My money's on him.

    Note to producers...how about real every day "normal" people do next season and have the stars be the "experts" for a giggle.

    That being said, how about James Brolin or Lee Majors do next season...Both are very sexy (albeit old enough to be my own dad).

    Bob Barker may be okay but I don't think Dick Clark (good suggest though) could do it because of his stroke.

    How about Gene Simmons of KISS?

    As for the females, Meredith Baxter, Lee Merriweather?

    While i think the line-up sucks and i don't know who the majority of these people are, I don't know why everyone is bashing Kate. The woman has to support her children; if she weren't, you'd be beating her up for that. They will practice in Pennsylvania just like the dancers traveling to Vegas or a soap star's set for rehearsal. That had already been decided and mentioned in other articles –

    Interesting how you people are apparently okay with has been Pamela Anderson – her chest will beat her and her partner to death – glad i'm not making her costumes – when will her 15 minutes be up; and Jake – give me a break – does this man no longer have a job?

    It doesn't matter what Kate does; you guys are going to beat her up regardless. Me personally, i'd do what ever it takes to support my children – if that means putting herself out there, so be it. You don't have to watch. It could be worse – it could be Jon. don't judge her til you've walked a mile in her shoes.

    This is the worst lineup since the show began. 1/2 of them are relatively unknown to the majority of viewers. There also seems to be a lot less participants! I predict this will be the lowest ratings season, expecially if Pam Anderson finds herself voted off early. Who will watch?????

    DWTS has not only scraped the bottom of the barrel....they have dredged it. Most of these people are not 'stars' and with the exception of Buzz Aldrin or Evan Lysacek, I wouldn't aspire to be any of them. Most are spotlight grabbing morons who see this as one more chance to get their mugs in front of a camera. Maybe they should change the name to "Dancing with a Bunch of People Who Made The Headlines in the Last Few Years." I'm surprised they don't have the "Octomom" in the lineup. Definitely time for this show to go.

    I think there should be at least one more figure skater in the lineup to make the winner just a little less obvious. (How about a Sasha Cohen or a Michelle Kwan?) Pitting everyone else against a champion figure skater is just unfair, as figure skaters are just one tiny shift away from being exquisitely trained dancers. One might even say dancing is the easier art. The competition isn't even going to be close - we might as well crown Evan Lysacek the winner and be done with it. The good part about having him on the show though, is that we'll be able to see some real, technically superb dancing throughout the season, at least in one couple.

    Also, I am happy to see Kate Gosselin the lineup!

    Nicole the pussycat doll will be the winner! Kate will probably dance well but she won't get far because of a small fan base and so many people dislike her! Buzz willl be on for a while because he'll get the American hero and senior vote. I bet Neeicy will do well. Pam, Shannon...tramps!

    Unfortunately, I agree with a lot of the posts........this is the worst line-up yet. I was a faithful viewer but not this season. Give your faithful viewers more credit then to pass Kate Gosslin off as star.

    So Kate is going to leave her 8 kids and go to LA for however long it lasts? Great Mom. Mom of the year. Super Mommy. She is such a disgrace. Why doesn't she just slink off into oblivion? I feel so bad for those kids.

    Not pleased at all with the rag-tag lineup, however, am more upset over the loss of Kim and Jonathan, the professional dancers. Probably would have been better with Betty White and Abe Vigoda. At least they are true "Stars"! Thank goodness for DVR so that I will be able to fast forward through some of these pathetic misfits to watch only the couple of deserving contestants.

    I'm actually kind of surprised that people think this is a disappointing line up, or that they haven't heard of them (don't u people read the news?). I think that collectively it's much better than past seasons!The only reality stars (if you don't count Pam Anderson, lol) are Kate Gosselin (J&K plus 8) and Jake Pavelka (The Bachelor), both of whom are going to draw a big audience from the followings of their shows. Though some may be tired of Kate, don't forget that her show was #1 on TLC. So, she's kind of a big deal. Evan Lysacek is the olympic men's gold medalist in figure skating, so it'll be cool to see how that transfers. Erin Andrews, Shannen Doherty, Buzz Aldrin, the sexy pussycat doll lead singer...I might actually watch this season!! The only one I've never heard of is Aiden Turner, and Niecy Nash is not really a 'star' but maybe they want the audience she can bring in.. I already hope those 2 are among the first to go :-).

    Doesn't Kate Gosselin have all of those kids to raise?! Where is she finding the time to invest in practicing dancing hours a day? Great mom... those kids are screwed.

    I agree w/th the comment from LMB – "Where Are The Stars"? Well, where are they. I have watched this shoq from the beginning, and unfortunately it seems since about show 5, the so call "Stars" have gotten less and less from being true stars. If your can't find anyone, then just let the show be cancelled & go out w/dignity. I don't think they should have one of the Pussy Cats on because they are dancers!!! How fair is that to everyone else. And, who the heck are Nicey Nash, Erin Andrews, Jake Pavelka? Never heard of any of them. Bring back season 1.

    I have watched this show EVERY season but not this one. The only reason to peek would be Evan. Pamela and Kate – kidding right. And, I have so much respect for Buzz Aldrin but really. This is really, REALLY disappointing and had been looking forward to the start of the new season. Why – why won't they make a selection of people that would be entertaining to watch and would actually be able to compete with one another? Guess because they can't. Well, my Mon and Tues nights are free. Thanks ABC!

    I think it's great. Some lesser know people and a good mix of genres. I am glad Kate Gosseling is in there. People need to give her a break, no one is perfect. They were trying to raise their family and after being married to John all those years it is great that she can do this and focus on herself for a bit.
    I think people are jealous. All reality stars make fools of them selves. Look at the Kardashians, and The Bachelor. It is hard to lead a normal life in front of the cameras. When a freak like Madonna shows her kids we say, "awww look how cute" and big name celebreties have thier kids faces all over the place and Will SMith has his son all over the big screen and no on has a problem iwith that. Many people need to spend more time looking at and worrying about themselves instead of always pointing out the bad in others.

    Shannon Doherty? With all the talent that must be trying to get on this show they get washed-up Hollywood 911, nasty attitude Shannon Doherty?

    Who casts this show anyway? It's starting to become a convalescent show for washed up careers rather than striving to be the best dancing show it could be

    This show has no right any longer to call itself "Dancing With The Stars." It should be renamed "Dancing With Some Stars and Clunking Around With Other D-List Wannabees and Hangers-On." I can't believe that Kate Gosselin is still on her 16th minute. Boy, is she ever hanging on like a cat using every last millimeter of its claws to hang on to the tree branch before crashing down to the ground below.

    You can NOT compare her anywhere near the caliber of a national hero that is personified by Buzz Aldrin. The other contestants have talent in their respective fields and have worked hard in their craft to achieve their varying levels of success. Kate Gosselin's talent that has put her on a level where she is called a star? Perfecting the art of giving stank attitude to her ex on TV? Knowing how to be sarcastic and snarky? Why oh why is she on this show?

    Oy vey. Please, someone, ANYONE, please ring the bell, stop the timer...it's now her 17th minute. Benjamin Franklin's famous quote most certainly applies here: "Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days." Modernize it to fit today's society and it would say, "Untalented reality stars, like fish, start to reek after overstaying their 15-minutes, and the stench of the vomit they have induced in millions of others becomes a permanent fixture of their persona."

    My wish is that her contract calls for a nice check for appearing on the show, as I do not begrudge her children of the financial windfall their mom will receive, because the kids will directly benefit from that by having it put food on their table and a roof over their heads. However, please America, either don't vote for her or give her a score of 1 on her first week, thus ensuring she does not return for week 2. This woman must find a job that doesn't involve cameras of any kind.

    Let her earn her "Dancing With the Stars" appearance fee for her kids sake, but then immediately afterwards, PLEASE, please pull the plug on her 17-minute clock. Then may she go in her merry way, finding gainful employment that doesn't involve me having to be eating my steak dinner with my glass of red wine and then looking up at the TV and seeing that head of hair that was attacked by Edward Scissorhands. I do not enjoy being a cow and regurgitating my food as I'm eating.

    I think calling any of them "stars" is a stretch. Probably not worth my time this time around. Maybe if the Gosselin kids make an appearance I'll rethink it though.

    Very disappointing!! I will certainly not have to hurry home from school for this line-up. No one I would look forward to seeing and I agree with the other posts about Kate G, this is not Dancing with the "stars". Count me out ABC. You are not getting better at all.

    Kate Gosselin is an attention seeking PIG!!!! She disgusts on so many levels. Id rather have a stomach virus than suffer through watching her try to extend her 15 minutes. KATE GO HOME AND RAISE YOUR KIDS. Ugly Mutt.

    more like Dancing with the Strangers. ridiculously stupid lineup. Buzz, yes, a great man and Evan... he'd be interesting to watch but the rest? reality TV people are not stars. surely there are enough qualified stars to choose from. what a stretch. will not be watching anymore.

    Contrary to a lot of comments, each year has turned out to be intersting. Ijust like to watch "whomever" dance. Each year is different. You have to admit they have variety this year.

    Kate – I think a lot of people are just jealous of her. And Pamela – why not? She may be a hoot to watch. You can bet she'll put her all into doing it.

    And I don't have a clue who the football player is that everyone is oohhing and ahhhing over.

    To each his own, eh?

    To DWTS, Give me a break, I was so looking forward to seeing the show but Kate Gossy, she is a witch, and a nag, I had stopped watching her show because of all her nagging to Jon, but I guess it is time to give up and move on to something else. Sorry DWTS
    Reminder trhe show is called Dancing with the Stars and Dancing with the Nag of the Year.
