Another season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us! And of course that means another rag-tag group of “stars,” consisting of reality show vets, athletes, washed-up actors, models you’ve never heard of, and Disney Channel stars. We’ll break up the season 12 contestants into two groups, the first being the ones we think are viable contenders (i.e. all the athletes, and the actors who have taken on physically demanding roles) consisting of the following: football player Hines Ward, boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, Karate Kid Ralph Macchio, wrestler Chris Jericho, model Petra Nemcova (she’s the one we’re pegging to be surprisingly athletic), and singer Romeo, who surely has some dance moves in his back pocket.
The second group is the batch of contestants we’re going to assume will be fun to watch but will be the first to go. No offense, y’all! They include Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson, talk show host Wendy Williams, barefoot actress Kirstie Alley, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and radio personality Mike Catherwood (who could be the greatest dancer in the world, unfortunately we’ve just never heard of him). What do you think of the new lineup? Care to divulge your early favorites? The new season premieres on March 21 on ABC.

Kendra Wilkinson and Kirstie Alley to Appear on Dancing with the Stars
Tuesday March 1, 2011
KENDRA Wilkinson and Kirstie Alley are among the celebrities taking part in the 12th series of Dancing with the Stars.
The former Playboy model and the Look Who’s Talking actress will battle it out on the dancefloor against the likes of former boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard, NFL star Hines Ward and model Petra Nemcova.
“We’re going to try to not fall on our butts the first week out. That’s what I’m going for,” Kirstie said.
Other celebrities to take part include actor Ralph Macchio, singer-and-actor Romeo, talk show host Wendy Williams, radio personality Mike Catherwood and WWE star Chris Jericho.
Former Disney actress Chelsea Kane will also compete and admits the nerves are already starting to show.
“I don’t know how I’m going to react to the judges when there’s a camera on my face and I’m trying to smile through it. Hopefully, I won’t ruin my make-up,” she said.
The celebrities — whose professional partners have not yet been announced — have just three weeks to prepare before the show kicks off on March 21.
Previous winners have included Jennifer Grey, Nicole Scherzinger and Donny Osmond.
