 Dancing with the Stars Cast Revealed: A Real Housewife, An Olympic Gymnast, A Former Idol

You may scoff at “Dancing with the Stars,” but there’s a reason why it remains one of the most-watched prime time shows to date: It’s the ultimate guilty pleasure. Now entering its 16th (!) season, it’s always fun (or funny, whichever) to watch the mix of has-beens, over the hill athletes, and zeitgeisty reality starlets attempt to tango in a slew of ridiculous costumes in the hopes of taking home the Mirrorball Trophy.

This season’s cast has just been revealed, so take a look below at who made the cut along with which pro they’re paired up with. Let us know who you’re most excited to see (or at least who you think might be the first to get the axe from the American public).

  • Boxer Victor Ortiz and new pro Lindsay Arnold 
  • Country singer and former “American Idol” contestant Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
  • Country singer Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani
  • Soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson

  • Comedian and actor Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess
  • “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump and new pro Gleb Savchenko
