When the dancers on the show are more famous than the "stars" then you really should just call it what it is. Dancing With People You Thought Were Dead Or Didn't Know. Yes, you know most of them, but most people don't. Go ask your grandmother who The Situation is or Audrina Patridge.
Although there are a couple of actual stars in the show, most are not. What makes this cast interesting is that I think despite any actual stars on the show, this could be the best contest the show has had. Every season there are people who have a dancing background and they always dominate. Whether it be ice skaters or gymnasts or singers they always do well and almost always win. This time though only Brandy has any of those qualities. The rest are just fairly normal. Maybe what this season will have is people who have a chance to win and not people who are just hoping to come in third.
It will probably make things lighter, but it will also mean the first few weeks will probably have some really bad performances.
The cast is, The Situation, The Hoff, Bristol Palin, Brandy, Kurt Warner, Jennifer Grey, Michael Bolton, Margaret Cho, Rick Fox, Florence Henderson, Kyle Massey, and Audrina Patridge. I will want Jennifer Grey or Margaret Cho to win.
