Well folks, here they are. Hopes are decidedly low. Most of the choices seem like "plan B" versions of previous contestants. The best news? Paula Abdul is not one of them. Still doesn't mean they won't have her as a pro, though.

  • (daughter of Ozzy) Kelly Osbourne
  • (R&B singer) Mya
  • (singer) Macy Gray
  • (singer) Donny Osmond
  • (actress) Debi Mazar
  • (actress) Melissa Joan Hart
  • (son of George Hamilton) Ashley Hamilton
  • (Polish model-actress) Joanna Krupa
  • (former Texas congressman) Tom DeLay (YES REALLY)
  • (swimmer) Natalie Coughlin
  • (football player) Michael Irvin
  • (snowboarder) Louie Vito
  • (UFC champ) Chuck Liddell
  • (brother of singer Nick) Aaron Carter
  • (supermodel) Kathy Ireland
  • (chairman of Iron Chef America) Mark Dacascos

I had to look up several of those. Which is more pitiful? Is it one of the ones who are only famous because of a famous parent or sibling, or being a former House majority leader?

The good news? at this rate they'll be recruiting DBSTalk moderators :)

Was Kathy Griffin booked? Man, these "celebs" are D listers at best!

Judging by the list I think Kathy Griffin was "above" that. I seem to recall her commenting last year that they approached her and she thought she wasn't in good enough shape.

Chuck Lidell? Seriously? Cmon weren't Master P and Kenny Maines bad enough?

And talk about sibling rivalry:

Donny: "I'll bet I get further than you did."
Marie: " Maybe, but I looked better than you will."

Wonder what's going on? Are the producers that scared of SYTYCD?

Is that what fear looks like? Because if I were a producer at DWTS, I'd try to get more name talent. I'd be trying to book Britney Spears, Madonna, 50 Cent, John Elway, not these people.

She's not low enough of the celeb totem pole? :confused: :lol:

I don't watch the show, but they do have few interesting ones including a "local" celeb for me Natalie. It will be interesting to see how things shake out and if they try to keep on some of the "Eye candy."

Mya has danced on a celebrity competition TV show before.




At least she'll be nice to look at.

Oh crap. I thought I'd be able to talk my wife into trying to watch it again this year after she had a fit over the judges early on last year and we quit watching.

I'd insist we watch if you'd been recruited Stuart, but this group of mostly D-list and lesser celebrities forced me to look up "star" in Dictionary.com:

10. a person who is celebrated or distinguished in some art, profession, or other field.
11. a prominent actor, singer, or the like, esp. one who plays the leading role in a performance.

Are these folks "stars?" The key words are "prominent, leading, celebrated or distinguished" so I guess for every one of these individuals there is someone out there who sees them as a star.:sure:

Phrelin, my friend, I'm afraid "Dancing with the Relatives of the Stars, as well as some other people who have been on other Reality Shows" probably wouldn't have fit on the title card. It would have been more accurate though.

I am SOOOOOO not surprised Donny Osmond will be on, but more surprised that I know 11 of the names!

By the way, Ashley Hamilton is famous for being Shannen Doherty's husband and in the rag mags for a while, and Aaron Carter was a pop-singer in his own right in the '90's.

For sure these names mean we'll be seeing some famous guests in the audience, so I'm sure that also was a factor in selecting some of the names...

Know them:
  • (daughter of Ozzy) Kelly Osbourne
  • (R&B singer) Mya
  • (singer) Macy Gray
  • (singer) Donny Osmond
  • (actress) Debi Mazar
  • (actress) Melissa Joan Hart
  • (son of George Hamilton) Ashley Hamilton
  • (former Texas congressman) Tom DeLay (YES REALLY)
  • (football player) Michael Irvin
  • (brother of singer Nick) Aaron Carter
  • (supermodel) Kathy Ireland
Don't know them:
  • (Polish model-actress) Joanna Krupa
  • (swimmer) Natalie Coughlin
  • (snowboarder) Louie Vito
  • (UFC champ) Chuck Liddell
  • (chairman of Iron Chef America) Mark Dacascos
