The rest of the Dancing with the Stars season 11 lineup received their celebrity/dancer pairings Wednesday morning on Good Morning America. The celebrities were announced on Monday night’s The Bachelor Pad and Bristol Palin revealed her dance partner the next morning. The star-studded cast will begin dancing towards Mirror Ball trophy victory on Monday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas
We learned Tuesday on GMA that Bristol Palin will be taking the DWTS stage with Mark Ballas. Ballas possibly has the most difficult challenge as far as partners go. Bristol Palin isn’t the youngest on the DWTS cast (that would be Kyle Massey), but has the least on-camera experience. His past two wins and six previous seasons will definitely come in handy.
Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani
‘The Hills’ reality starlet Audrina Patridge will be paired with Tony Dovolani. This is Dovolani’s tenth season, after spending a difficult one last time with Kate Gosselin.
Brandy & Maksim Chmerkoskiy
Singer/songwriter and actress Brandy’s Dancing with the Stars partner is to be Maksim Chmerkoskiy. Maybe the Cinderella star’s glass slippers will dance Chmerkskiy into the winners’ circle. Season 11 marks his ninth on the show, yet he has yet to have the coveted Mirror Ball trophy in his grasp.
David Hasselhoff & Kym Johnson
Former Baywatch hunk David Hasselhoff’s partner is season 9 champ Kym Johnson. This will be Johnson’s eighth appearance on the show.
Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas
Florence Henderson, perhaps better known as Mrs. Brady, joins Corky Ballas in the Dancing with the Stars season 11 lineup. This is only Ballas’ second season, after him and actress Shannen Doherty were the first eliminated last time.
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough
Actress Jennifer Grey, of ‘Dirty Dancing’ and ‘Ferris Bueller’ fame, has been paired with Derek Hough. Let’s hope Grey still has the moves Patrick Swayze taught her, so she can keep up with Hough! Hough’s slick moves have helped him win DWTS twice.
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya
Retired NFL quarterback and Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Kurt Warner will be cha cha-ing with Anna Trebunskaya. This will be her seventh season.
Kyle Massey & Lacy Schwimmer
Actor and rapper Kyle Massey will be paired with Lacy Schwimmer. The Disney Channel star will be part of Schwimmer’s third season.
Margaret Cho & Louis Van Amsel
Comedienne and actress Margaret Cho pairs up with six season alum Louis Van Amsel. This will be Van Amsel’s second season in a row twirling a funny lady in his arms. He danced last season with comic and actress Niecy Nash.
Michael Bolton & Chelsie Hightower
Michael Bolton, singer/songwriter and multiple Grammy winner, will join the DWTS cast paired with Chelsie Hightower. Hightower is embarking on her fourth season. She danced last season with Jake Pavelka.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino & Karina Smirnoff
Jersey Shore reality star Mike Sorrentino will be dancing with Karina Smirnoff. This is her tenth season on the show.
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke
Actor, producer and former Laker Rick Fox rounds off the Dancing with the Stars cast lineup with partner Cheryl Burke. This will also be the two-time DWTS winner’s tenth season.
