All-star Dancing with the Stars cast: mostly winners, runners-up

ABC just announced the all-star cast of Dancing with the Stars 15, and the identities of the three who will compete for a final spot.

Although TV Guide reported that no winners would return, the opposite is actually true: there are six winners in the announced cast of 12. And every single (non-viewer-voted) cast member except Pamela Anderson was a finalist.

The cast is: Pamela Anderson (season 10), Emmitt Smith (season three winner), Kelly Monaco (season one winner), Gilles Marini (season eight runner-up), Shawn Johnson (season eight winner), Melissa Rycroft (season eight, third place), Joey Fatone (season four runner-up), Helio Castroneves (season five winner), Drew Lachey (season two winner), Bristol Palin (season 11, third place), Apolo Anton Ohno (season four winner), Kirstie Alley (season 12 runner-up).

Viewers will choose between Kyle Massey (season 11 runner-up), Sabrina Bryan (season five), and Carson Kressley (season 13) to fill the final spot.
