Fans of the hit reality TV series Dancing with the Stars are eagerly awaiting the premiere of Season 9 and are even more excited now that the new contestants have been revealed.
The new lineup was announced on Good Morning America and include controversial stars like Kelly Osbourne,(former House of Representatives Majority Leader) Tom DeLay and former supermodel Kathy Ireland.
While the new group of stars has some definite potential, we were hoping for a few more familiar faces this season. Of the sixteen contestants, we’ve only ever heard of maybe 4 (that could be our fault) and aren’t really fans of the ones we do know. In other words, we think they could’ve done better. Although, if we had to pick a favorite to win right now, we’d have to bet our fall wardrobe on Mya taking home the mirror-ball trophy this year.
Here’s the complete lineup for DWTS Season 9, take a look and let us know if you think these stars have the ability to make this season a hit:
Melissa Joan Hart, actress
Michael Irvin, former Dallas Cowboy
