The celebrity contestants for Dancing with the Stars Season 9 were announced Monday on Good Morning America. The eclectic mix includes such oddities as reality stars Mark Dacascos and Kelly Osbourne, politician Tom Delay, UFC fighter Chuck Liddell and model Joanna Krupa.


The Dancing With the Stars 2009 cast is perhaps the strangest mix of contestants yet. The announcement of the DWTS season 9 cast was made on Good Morning America on Monday by host Tom Bergeron. Bergeron also discussed a few changes to the DWTS format for season 9.

“In the middle of our season, over three weeks, we’re going to have double eliminations,” Bergeron said. “We’ll lose about half of our cast within that period. It will be a ballroom bloodbath.”

We can’t wait. Check out the full cast list below:
