Kate Gosselin Survives Another Week on Dancing With the Stars

Sadly, it was not former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin who got the boot this week on Dancing With the Stars. Instead, it was astronaut Buzz Aldrin who was eliminated in week 3 of the competition. While Aldrin wasn’t much of a dancer, we’ll still miss the witty old guy and his adorable partner Ashly Costa.

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised Kate Gosselin stuck around another week even though we think she is by far the worst dancer on the show. Yes, even worse than Buzz Aldrin. At least Aldrin had class. This week Kate Gosselin looked like some kind of Marilyn Manson street-walker and danced walked around the stage like a drugged out wax figure. (We’re still dying over the “super bitch from hell” comment from Bruno Tonioli.) Still, the people love drama and Gosselin is full of it, so we’ll be forced to endure her yet again next week.

The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka joined Buzz Aldrin and Kate Gosselin in the bottom three this week on DWTS. We aren’t quite sure he deserved to be placed so lowly. Pavelka isn’t the next Baryshnikov, but we don’t think he was really all that bad. We are a bit bummed about Buzz leaving, but we think he was pretty aware he wouldn’t last very long in the competition.

We’re still rooting for Evan Lysacek to pull off the win this season, but the competition is getting rather heated for the Olympic gold medalist. Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is tearing it up and ESPN analyst Erin Andrews isn’t half bad herself.

Now, let’s just work on getting Kate Gosselin off the show next week and back to taking care of her kids where she belongs. Then we can finally watch the show without cringing every time her face comes on screen.

Dancing With the Stars Cast Winners and Losers

The new season of Dancing With the Stars kicks off tonight and we’re making our predictions on who will win and who will fall on their asses and fail miserably. Eleven celebrity contestants and their professional dance partners hit the stage for the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars on Monday night. Naturally, we have our own biased opinion on who is going to rock the dance floor and who is going to embarrass themselves thoroughly.

Least Likely to Win: Buzz Aldrin and Ashly Costa

There is virtually no chance this duo can win. The former astronaut is no spring chicken and he’s not going to be able to pull off the moves some of the other contestants will do with ease. Plus, it’s just kind of weird to watch a guy this old jiggle his butt. We’re predicting a high chance for a medical out with Aldrin, considering how often accidents and injuries happen on this show.

Most Likely to Win: Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskya

Evan Lysacek has already proven he can dance on ice skates like a friggin’ ballerina on steroids. We’re sure that’s going to translate into some spectacular moves on his own two feet. High probability Lysacek will be doing some killer lift moves with his partner, which we can’t wait to watch.

Most Likely to Have a Wardrobe Malfunction: Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitehood

We’re sorry to say it, but those boobs have got to make it difficult to bounce around on the dance floor without losing your top. Plus, they probably get in the way when you’re trying to do some kind of crazy lift move and we can hear the fabric ripping in our heads already. Really though, we just feel it in our bones there will be a viral video from DWTS of Pamela Anderson exposing something she shouldn’t. Whee!

Most Likely to Fall on Their Ass: Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani

We’re predicting a spill for this dancing couple because Kate Gosselin constantly moves like a wooden puppet wound too tightly – and that’s just when she’s grocery shopping! Plus, it’s obvious the girl has major control issues and she’s not going to relax when she’s being flung around the floor by her partner. She’ll grab when she should let go or try to push Dovolani around and down she’ll go. Well, that’s our gut feeling anyway, Gosselin may just prove us wrong, but we kind of hope not…

We’ll be tuning in to Dancing With the Stars Monday night to see how it goes, but regardless of whether we’re right or wrong on our predictions, we’re sure it will be a fun-filled, drama-packed season of DTWS once again!

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?
