Dancing with the Stars 10‘s cast was announced just before 10 p.m. last night, and the cast largely consists of people who are actually recognizable.
Frequent headline and do-it-for-the-childrener Kate Gosselin, Baywatch and Borat star Pamela Anderson, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Olympic figure skating gold medalist Evan Lysacek, and NFL player Chad Ochocinco are all on the cast, and their names were all rumored/reported/floated at some point.
Bachelor pilot Jake Pavelka was the 11th cast member announced and is a ridiculous choice; clearly, ABC just needs more excuses to fill prime-time with shirtless shots of him.
In addition, Shannen Doherty, Clean House host and Reno 911! actor Niecy Nash, ESPN’s Erin Andrews, All My Children’s Aiden Turner, and Pussycat Doll Nicole Sherzinger round out the 11-person cast, which is smaller than last year’s massive 16-person cast.
