E! Online has the inside scoop on the final Dancing with the Stars lineup of contestants and there are some real doozies. Bristol Palin, Margaret Cho, Jennifer Grey, Rick Fox, Michael Bolton, Audrina Patridge, The Situation, David Hasselhoff, Brandy, and Florence Henderson all seem like a lock to be announced on Monday.
From the looks of the Dancing with the Stars 11 cast, there’s not a whole heap of star power there. Reality stars Patridge, of The Hills, and The Situation, from Jersey Shore, hardly fit the bill for the “stars” part of DWTS. Nor does Bristol Palin, for that matter.
“Celebrity” is up for interpretation these days, it seems.
As for the older folks competing this season: David Hasselhoff is a cheeseball, Florence Henderson is everybody’s favorite TV mom, and Michael Bolton… well… let’s just leave it at that.
Singer Brandy also recently entered the reality show genre, with VH1’s Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business, but hasn’t released an album in a couple of years. Maybe the exposure on Dancing with the Stars will get Brandy back in the limelight again?
Rick Fox is the only athlete on this season’s DWTS roster, so we’ll see how the athletic angle serves him.
Jennifer Grey has that Dirty Dancing advantage, which we have to assume will carry her further than most.
All in all, there are no names on the list that scream Dancing with the Stars breakout star, a la Nicole Scherzinger last season.
That leaves Margaret Cho, who will no doubt provide the comedic element we’ll be tuning in to see her because the rest of the cast sounds like a bust.
What do you think of the Dancing with the Stars season 11 cast?
