Let's just leave it that we have wildly different definitions of what a "star" is.
If you're talking to me, I doubt we're really far apart.
- Kirstie Alley
Star + DWTS All-Star (Runner-Up - Season #12)
- Emmitt Smith
Star + DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #3)
- Bristol Palin (Third Place - Season #11)
- Pamela Anderson
.... sadly, star... (Sixth Place - Season #10)
- Joey Fatone
Ehhh... + DWTS All-Star (Runner-Up - Season #4)
- Helio Castroneves
DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #5)
- Melissa Rycroft (Third Place - Season #8)
- Shawn Johnson
Star + DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #8)
- Kelly Monaco
DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #1)
- Drew Lachey
DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #2)
- Apolo Anton Ohno
DWTS All-Star (WINNER - Season #4)
- Gilles Marini
DWTS All-Star (Runner-Up - Season #8)
- I find Fatone could go either way when labeling him, but I'm not sure I'd consider him a "star."
- Ohno is an Olympic gold medal winner, and can be seen quite often in Subway commercials, but I probably wouldn't know who he was had it not been for DWTS.
- Monaco is a Daytime Emmy nominated actress, though much of her success has come from DWTS and Playboy. I could sort of go either way on her...
- Castroneves is a three time winner of the Indy 500, but I wouldn't know who he was if it wasn't for DWTS.
However, when I think of DWTS: All-Stars, I think of the All-Stars of the show, and the amount of winners and runners-up is very impressive.
Four of those contestants (Marini, Lachey, Ohno, Fatone) are among the top ten highest scoring couples on the show.
Six of the contestants (Lachey, Castroneves, Fatone, Ohno, Smith, and Monaco) had dances listed among the Top Ten greatest perfect scoring dances on the first five seasons. While I'm hoping Kyle Massey returns, Sabrina Bryan had a dance on the list as well.
For the 200th episode (season 11), viewers at home voted on the ten greatest dances of the show out of 30 dances. Lachey came in first, Marini second, Ohno third, Ohno seventh, Castroneves eighth, and Johnson tenth.
