The Dancing With The Stars Season 11 Cast list was announced August 30 during Bachelor Pad on ABC. At 9:23 pm ET, the much anticipated first half of the 12-member list was announced by Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke.
First Tom and Brooke announced the female contestants, saving the highly controversial pick of “Alaska’s favorite daughter” as they dubbed her, Bristol Palin, for last.
After several more commercials, and back to Bachelor Pad for several moments, Tom and Brooke announced the male contestants of Season 11.
So now the coveted list of DWTS is public and the masses can rest knowing who is going to grace the hardwood floor and embrace our minds with supposition, fodder and fun.
