“Dancing with the Stars” has been a hit on ABC for more than five years, but will trading the dance floor for a skating rink bring similar success?
We'll soon be able to tell, as the network has unveiled its celebrity lineup for “Skating with the Stars," leading up to the show's premiere on November 22.
The six-week series will feature six celebrities paired with professional skating partners in a quest to come out on top. Check out the contestants after the jump.
Bethenny Frankel – The “Real Housewives” alum finished second in the Martha Stewart edition of “The Apprentice” a few years back.
Sean Young – The colorful actress, best known for playing Rachael in the 1982 movie “Blade Runner,” has recently been seen playing Meggie McClaine on the CBS soap “The Young and the Restless.”
Jonny Moseley – He won gold in freestyle skiing at the 1998 Winter Olympics, but skis aren’t allowed on the skating rink.
Vince Neil – The Motley Crue frontman looks to kickstart his skating skills on this show. Hopefully, he won’t go away mad if he’s eliminated early, he’ll just go away.
Rebecca Budig – She plays Greenlee Smythe on the ABC soap “All My Children,” and was once married to “Bachelor” alum Bob Guiney.
Brandon Mychal Smith – I admit I had no idea who this person is, so I did some research. Turns out he appears on the Disney Channel show “Sonny with a Chance,” but plays neither Sonny nor Chance.
Do you plan on watching “Skating with the Stars”?
