Skating with the Stars pros and hosts are even less famous than the stars

ABC has revealed the identities of the hosts and professional skaters for its upcoming Dancing with the Stars spin-off Skating with the Stars, and they’re even less famous than the six non-star stars who will be competing.

Here are the pairings, according to ABC: “Bethenny Frankel & Ethan Burgess, Brandon Mychal Smith & Keauna McLaughlin, Jonny Moseley & Brooke Castile, Rebecca Budig & Fred Palascak, Sean Young & Denis Petukhov and Vince Neil & Jennifer Wester.”

The hosts are Vernon Kay (“host of ABC’s upcoming ‘Million Dollar Mind Game’ and one of the most popular television presenters in the United Kingdom,” ABC says) and Olympian Tanith Belbin (“the most decorated U.S. Ice Dancer in history”).
