The 12th season of "Dancing with the Stars" premieres March 21, and the 11 celebrities who will compete for the Mirrorball Trophy have been revealed. What do you think of this season's "Dancing with the Stars" cast?
Chris Jericho - The wrestler, author and musician may be a better fit for "Skating with the Stars." Jericho's dad, Ted Irvine, played in the National Hockey League for 15 seasons.
Romeo - The rapper and actor hopes to have better show success than his hip-hop mogul father Master P, who bumbled and stumbled his way to a seventh-place finish in season two.
Wendy Williams - The syndicated TV talk show host likes to refer to herself as the "Queen of All Media."
Kendra Wilkinson - The model and TV personality has made a career out of appearing on reality shows, starring in "The Girls Next Door" and "Kendra" for E!
Ralph Macchio - The original "Karate Kid" shouldn't worry about having his legs swept from under him during the competition. Nevertheless, I'm sad that neither Billy Zabka nor Martin Kove were tapped for this season.
Sugar Ray Leonard - The boxing legend had a habit of frequently retiring and un-retiring during his ring career. I'm pretty sure that's not allowed on the dance floor.
Petra Nemcova - The supermodel and activist survived the 2004 Asian tsunami, and founded the Happy Hearts Fund, a non-profit organization that helps children in natural disaster zones.
Chelsea Kane - The actress, who recently changed her professional name from Chelsea Staub, starred on the Disney Channel series "JONAS." Since I'm not a preteen, I really don't know who this woman is, no matter what name she uses.
Kirstie Alley - The Emmy award-winning "Cheers" actress hopes to see her career revived on the dance floor.
Hines Ward - With the National Football League facing a potential lockout, it's no wonder the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver is looking at new career options.
Mike Catherwood - He co-hosts the syndicated radio show "Loveline" with Dr. Drew Pinsky, and may have successfully stretched the definition of "star" for this show.
