Dancing With the Stars 2010 Cast of Strangeness

We didn’t quite believe it when the rumor hit that former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin would be appearing on the new season of Dancing With the Stars. Apparently, we were wrong to think she had more important things to do with herself (like raising her eight children). Kate Gosselin will indeed be starring on Dancing With the Stars season 10, along with a cast of other oddballs.

The season 10 cast of Dancing With the Stars was announced Monday night during the finale of The Bachelor. As usual, the DWTS season 10 cast is a mixture of cool, weird and just plain WTF were they thinking?

In addition to reality TV mom Kate Gosselin, the season 10 DWTS cast also includes Shannen Doherty of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame – another woman we could happily let fade into obscurity and never have to hear from again. Well known for her ball-busting ways, we look forward to SOME kind of drama emerging from this one’s dressing room.

The obligatory sports-themed contestants this season include football player Chad Ochocinco and Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysachek. We’re already calling Lysachek as our favorite. I mean seriously, if this guy can dance like that on skates, what can he do with both feet actually on the floor?

Embarrassed ESPN sports reporter Erin Andrews will also be tying on her dancing shoes. Let’s just hope they can keep the stalkers from video-taping her backstage changing into those ridiculous costumes. Poor Andrews certainly doesn’t need any more nude videos floating around.

The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka is apparently already bored enough with his chosen bride-to-be Vienna that he’s decided to sign on for another reality show run to escape her clutches. Personally, we think he’ll probably get booted pretty fast. Seriously, he’s about as interesting as dry toast.

Pamela Anderson will be taking the slot of aging sex symbol in this season’s cast. Mostly we’re just curious if she’ll be able to keep her massive assets contained in those skimpy outfits while bouncing around attempting not to fall on her ass.

Taking the weirdness prize this season is 80-year-old astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Like with previous contestant Tom Delay, we’ll be biting our nails hoping Aldrin doesn’t just collapse in the middle of a dance and have to be rushed off to the ER.

Reno 911‘s Niecy Nash, former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and soap opera player Aiden Turner round out the rest of the DTWS season 10 cast.

Who is your favorite for taking the top prize on DWTS this season? And who do you think is going to crash and burn right from the start?

  1. Can you say ‘Jumping the shark’..I only watch it cause my TV remote holding husband likes the skimpy outfits. But this season i think they went too far, a bunch of losers and has been, and a few who are they? thrown in to round it out. We can go another decade without seeing kate goslin on TV..why not invite octo mom too? i think i will use that hour to clean my bathroom..time beter spent!

  2. I still cant believe he chose Vienna. I think deep down he already knew who he was choosing but still. I really don’t like her and I think Tenley would have been a better choice. It’ll be interesting to see Kate Gossilin on DWTS

  3. All I can say is WTF???? DWTS has taken a major nose dive this season…Why do we need to see more Kate Gosselin, enough already! Enough of the geriatrics! I appreciate that they try to get all age demographics, but frankly it’s not fair to them and certainly not fair to their partners. Men (probably most women too!) will only be watching to see if Pam can keep her money-makers in her dress. Nicole Scherzinger or Evan Lysechek are probably the best bets this season. Niecy Nash is hilarious. She’ll definitely be bringing the comic relief.
