Dancing With The Stars- Season 12 Cast Announced
It’s hard to believe that there have already been 11 seasons of the hit television show Dancing with the Stars. Since 2005, dozens upon dozens of celebrities have embraced the stage of CBS’s Television City in Hollywood, California, all competing for the winning spot. Now that the cast of season 12 has been announced, fans will be at the edge of their seats until the big premier on Monday, March 21.
Each season brings a plethora of celebrities all from different parts of the famous scale. From professional sports players and actors to models and Olympians, they all have on goal in mind: to win. Each celebrity is paired with a professional dancer, and is given a different dance style every week. Styles include: Waltz’s, Tangos, the Rumba, Quickstep, Lindy Hop and Freestyle.
Here is the complete celebrity cast of DWTS season 12:
- Kirstie Alley- Actress- 60
- “Psycho” Mike Catherwood- Radio DJ- 31
- Chris Jericho (Chris Keith Irvine)- former professional wrestler- 40
- Sugar Ray Leonard- former boxer- 54
- Ralph Macchio- actor- 49
- Romeo Miller- actor/rapper/basketball player- 21
- Petra Nemcova- model- 31
- Chelsea Kane Staub- actress- 22
- Hines Ward- wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers- 34
- Kendra Wilkinson- model and TV personality- 25
- Wendy Williams- talk show host- 46
Alley and Wilkinson are about the only ones I am really familiar with out of the list, but I love them both and am interested to see how they do. Alley is 60 now and for the last few years has only been seen doing weight loss commercials, so I hope this is a great comeback for her and that she succeeds. Wilkinson and husband Hank Baskett III are busy raising their toddler son, Hank Baskett IV, and she might have a tiny bit of baby weight left, but there’s no doubt in my mind this will be great for Wilkinson and will show her true talent and beauty. Go Kirstie and Kendra!!
This season seems like its diversity will keep people interested and coming back every week to see who gets eliminated.
The new season debuts just three weeks from today on ABC, so either work your plans so you can sit down with millions of other Americans for the live two-hour season premier, or DVR it if you’re going to miss it!
