The Dancing with the Stars 6 cast was announced last night, and includes Priscilla Presley, Marlee Matlin, Steve Guttenberg, and Kristi Yamaguchi.
The 12 (alleged) stars are comedian and host Adam Carolla, telenovela actor Cristian De La Fuente, actor Shannon Elizabeth, actor Steve Guttenberg, magician Penn Jillette, R&B singer Mario, actor Marlee Matlin, Priscilla Presley, tennis pro Monica Seles, football player Jason Taylor, Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winokur, and ice skater Kristi Yamaguchi. Rumors about the cast got Priscilla Presley and Monica Seles right, but got many others wrong, like Florence Henderson.
They were introduced during the second hour of Dance War‘s finale, which was boring even to fast-forward through. Commenting on the new cast, Bruno asked, “Did you notice that all the men have huge feet?”
Former Dancing with the Stars cast members Kenny Mayne, Lisa Rinna, and Jerry Rice showed up to present the cast members three at a time in a faux-SportsCenter style. Mayne was wearing glitter on his face and bright blue eye shadow, sort of like the female pro dancers wear on the show, and offered deadpan delivery and edgy humor (of Marlee Matlin, he said, “I’ll tell you one thing she doesn’t have to hear: Bruno.”) If Samantha Harris should ever be fired for suddenly becoming competent, or if the show decides to go with color commentary, they have their man.
