Kate Gosselin, Jake Pavelka to Compete on Dancing with the Stars
“It’s fitting that in our landmark tenth season we’ve got many of the stars we’ve been chasing since season one to agree to take part," Dancing executive producer Conrad Green tells PEOPLE. "This has the potential to be the most memorable cast we’ve ever had."
Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, reality star Kate Gosselin, Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, and actresses Doherty and Anderson highlight the eclectic cast. Also readying to boogie in the ballroom are Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger, soap star Aiden Turner, NFL star Chad Ochocinco, ESPN’s Erin Andrews, and actress-comedian Niecy Nash.
Bachelor spoilers ahead!
DWTS host Tom Bergeron and former Bachelor and Dancing contestant Melissa Rycroft revealed the cast throughout the Bachelor finale and the After The Final Rose special that aired Monday night on ABC.
Pavelka, who got engaged to 23-year-old Vienna Girardi on the finale, told PEOPLE last October, “I’m a huge salsa dancer.” But can he rumba? Fans will find out when the new Dancing season kicks off March 22 on ABC. --Monica Rizzo
