I'll post the cast in this first post once they are all announced. (Correct spelling may come later as I am not very awake at 8am. )

Then when we get the call in phone numbers to vote, I'll post them here for reference throughout the season for all of us.

Thanks Imzadi as usual you are on top of things, not sure if I will be up at 8am but will definitely be checking in so glad Brooke is gone

Imzadi, I was waiting for this thread! I'll be watching tomorrow. I've read about a couple of potential "leaked" contestants. Not sure if you want to hear any rumors...

I do. it will turn out to be a competition with each other.

I suspect Billy Dee Williams will be first off. He wasn't walking out too spry.

No Tristan?



I love Danica McKellar so I will definitely be cheering for her. I also really like Candace Cameron Bure, but I don't want her partnered with Mark. I liked him when he first came on the show, but he has gotten really weird lately. I wanted her to be with Tristan or Tony. And speaking of Tony, I bet he and NeNe will be a laugh riot!

I wonder if Candace will do any shimmying? She's very religious and even shimmying may be to risqué for her?

No Tristan (darn it!), but I am glad Maks is back!

How about the "twist" this year -- changing partners?!!!

I agree - Meryl and Charlie will definitely be in the finals.

Amy Purdy - Paralympic snowboarder
I don't know her - what is her disability? I'm sure if she's a snowboarder she's got some moves; just wondering how that will translate to the dance floor.
