    Of course my DS17 was singing the theme song to Bill Nye the Science Guy! :)

    Okay, the whole cast is up in the first post with their pro dancers. I'll correct any typos later. And I'll add the voting phone numbers when the show starts in 2 weeks. :)

    I love Tristan. The poor guy just can't get a break. I love Valerie Harper too, but she can't be around that long.

    I am going on a DWTS at sea cruise in January and Tristan and Kym are going to be on it....so excited!

    What about poor Tony!?! At least he won't get an earful of trying to be recruited for Scientology.

    Hi guys!

    Pretty good line up, I think. Bill Nye the Science Guy was a surprise. I let out an "awwww" when they announced his name. Gotta love Bill Nye!

    Why is the cast always the worst kept secret. It was revealed days ago. Usually we watch, didn't really watch last season. May watch this season just for Valerie Harper. You gotta love Rhoda.

    I am disappointed that there are 3 new pros. I was hoping some more old pros would return.

    Sounds like an interesting season! I love Bill Nye! Wonder how old he is? Valerie Harper is this season's "awww" celebrity (sort of like Dorothy Hammill). While I love her, she won't get very far. I feel bad for Tristan - I wish he would get someone with a decent chance of making it to the finals.

    I agree......he has been there a long time and still doesn't get good people.
    How do they decide? I wish it was just always a random draw.

    I thought for sure Derek would get Elizabeth Berkley. But, I guess she's too tall for him.
