Dancing with the Who? Really? cast announced

The cast of Dancing with the Stars has been announced, and it’s the usual mix of “who?” (Disney Channel star) and “really?” (Andy Dick).

Most interesting is that just 11 cast members were announced today, and the show usually has 12 or 13; Reality Steve is insisting that Bachelor star Sean Lowe will be the 12th cast member.

Here are the people who are confirmed as participants:

  • Zendaya Coleman, Disney Channel’s Shake It Up!, with Val Chmerkovskiy
  • Andy Dick, former comedian, with Sharna Burgess
  • Dorothy Hamill, former Olympian, with Tristan MacManus
  • D.L. Hughley, comedian, with Cheryl Burke
  • Jacoby Jones, Baltimore Ravens player, with Karina Smirnoff
  • Wynonna Judd, Judd, with Tony Dovolani
  • Victor Ortiz, former boxer, with Lindsay Arnold
  • Kellie Pickler, former American Idol contestant, with Derek Hough
  • Igno Rademacher, soap opera actor, with Kym Johnson
  • Alexandra Raisman, Olympic gymnastics captain, with Mark Ballas
  • Lisa Vanderpump, Bravo star, with Gleb Savchenko
