    Good lineup. Never knew I was into any type of dancing other than a goofy skank, hip hop infused body spasm...until this show! We'll be watching.

      <sigh> I only recognize the first 6 names. Now that I'm a year older, can I blame it on age that I don't recognize the other 6?

      Upon perusing the link I'm really excited that Julianne Hough is returning and even more excited that her oh-so-cute brother, Derek, who Julianne was seen dancing with at one point last season, will be one of the pro dancers. I wish Derek could've been paired with a young starlet...oh, maybe, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole or Paris! j/k j/k j/k !!! Seriously, for me part of the allure of Julianne and Apolo was their youth. Ballroom dancing tends not to have the cool factor for the younger generation so to see those 2 youngsters not only make it cool but win was dynamite! I'd like to see Derek paired with Scarlet Johansson?!

        I saw the cast when it was leaked on TMZ.com the other day and it's a pretty *YAWN* cast, if you ask me.

        Still, I'll watch it...just for Maksim and Tony. Oh, and the A&F model. RAWR.

        Sabrina's an early favorite for me. She's a Cheetah Girl and she'll get the teenybopper vote. I already see her getting far into the competition.

          I'm still wondering why Fergie (the former Duchess of York) is not selected?

          I'll probably root for Marie Osmond. I had a pre-teen crush on her.

          I have no clue about the Cheetah Girls, except maybe Raven Symone, but then I already knew her before she's a Disney player.

          Oh, and I know one person in America that won't be voting for Melanie Brown.

          As for the guys, they don't have the appeal to draw young crowd to the show than previous seasons (who had Mario Lopez, Drew Lachey, Joey Fatone, etc.). Wayne Newton will draw in the old crowd as well as his fanbase in Vegas. Don't know much about Helio, whereas Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr are more familiar household names when it comes to the faces of NASCAR and Indy racing. Who would care for the rich guy Cuban?

          Other than Wayne, the Floyd Mayweather is familiar to me.

            Me, too. Unfortunately, she's an A-list actress and is very busy.

            I wouldn't mind seeing the hot latina from Grey's Anatomy compete. Or one of the Facts of Life girls (including the elusive Molly Ringwald).

              If you're not a sports fan, you don't know what it is about Mark Cuban that would make him a great contestant on this show, but the show's producers know. He will win a LOT of people over. He's a very young-looking 49 years old, a self-made billionaire since his early thirties who took the most pathetic franchise in sports and turned it into the team everyone wants to play for. He is a loose cannon, likely to say at any moment the kind of thing that has resulted in millions of dollars in fines from the commissioner of the NBA.

              Normally uncontrite about the words that come out of his mouth (he's always a good interview!), he once apologized for a thoughtless remark that offended some Dairy Queen workers by working all day at a DQ. It was one of those normal-guy things that people love about him. The public impression is that he's just a regular guy, but with a billion dollars. Count on him to impress a lot of people.

                Interesting lineup! Glad to read that the Hough kids are in this season as well.

                      Of interest to me is the fact that Cuban had hip replacement surgery on 6/29/07. I don't know how far in advance dance rehearsals begin but, dang, even if rehearsals started with the cast announcement yesterday, that's not much recuperation time. Age 49 for a hip replacement is young.

                        *Yawns*

                        He's nowhere as appealing as Wayne Newton, nor attractive as Jennie Garth or Jane Seymour for that matter.

                        And the only rich guy I idolize is Donald Trump (although I prefer daughter Ivanka Trump to try out for the show).

                              Wait a minute. How many votes do I get in the first round? And must I split my votes between the women tonight and men tomorrow night?
