You might not think it after looking over the Dancing With the Stars 2013 cast for season 17, but we’re oddly excited about the ‘celebrities’ this time around. Maybe it’s because we love Bill Nye the Science Guy so much or that Glee’s Amber Riley will be sliding her sexy curves all over the dance floor. Or it could be that we’re happy to have one bloody reality TV show to watch that is only on one night a week now instead of two, or three, or frakkin’ every day (we’re talking about you, Celebrity Big Brother 2013).
Seriously though, the Dancing With the Stars 2013 cast is just interesting in a way it hasn’t really been for several season, in our humble opinion. We have the usual score of has-beens and second-rate celebrities, of course. But we also have some actual modern star power contestants for DWTS 17. Amber is coming right off Glee, one of the most popular shows on TV (or was, anyway). Snooki has a legion of followers. Brant Daughtery steps onto the dance floor from Pretty Little Liars, which is smoking hot right now.
