DIANA NYAD

Nyad, who swam from Cuba to Florida last year, believes she's been selected for Dancing (and partnered with Henry Byalikov) for the right reasons. "When people truly admire you and you inspire people, that's truly different than fame," she says. "I'm in a very fortunate position right now that people look to me for their own lives. They want to feel that spirit of 'never ever give up.' So if I can carry that as my mantle, I'm proud to do so."
