Bristol Palin and her modest outfits will be paired up with two-time winner Mark Ballas for the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. On the other end of the spectrum, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff – neither one exactly a stranger to showing a little skin – have been teamed together.

The nine other pairings – just announced by ABC News – for this season are as follows: Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower; Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel; Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke; Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough; David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson; Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas; Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer; and Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani.

The list of professional dancers notably does not include Edyta Sliwinska, who says she is leaving the show to pursue other projects and finish school. "I'm grateful to the show but my life can't be limited to DWTS," she Tweeted on Monday.

The new season begins on Sept. 20. –Tim Nudd
