From former child stars to young musicians, the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars is filled with an eclectic mix of competitors. But the most interesting may be the casting of Meryl Davis and Charlie White.
Davis, 27, and White, 26, ruled the rink at last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, winning the gold medal in ice dancing. Now they'll battle in the ballroom – but against each other for the mirror ball trophy. White will dance with Sharna Burgess, while Davis will shimmy with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin's brother, who is back after taking last season off.
The 12 new contestants on ABC's hit show were announced Tuesday morning on Good Morning America.
See the rest of the competitors below:

It's over for Drew Carey and his longtime fiancée.
The Price Is Right host and Nicole Jaracz have ended their nearly five-year relationship. "He and Nicole still have a great deal of love and affection for one another," Carey's rep tells PEOPLE in a statement. "He will still be very involved with their son's life."
Carey, 53, and Jaracz announced their engagement in Oct. 2007. At the time, Jaracz had recently graduated from culinary school.

For newly slim, Drew Carey losing weight was a heavy decision.
"I always thought I was going to die before I was 60," the comedian, 52, tells Parade Magazine this week. "My father died of a heart attack in his 40s. I'm not an idiot. The writing was on the wall."
Not wanting to fall victim to the heart disease that runs in his family, the Price Is Right host traded his "daily hamburger" for a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition, daily exercise and willpower.
Dropping more then 70 lbs. since November, Carey now weighs in at 182 and is still working towards his goal – weighing 170 lbs. by Oct. 31.

Drew Carey has been known as a loveable, teddy-bear type as far back as his long-running sitcom The Drew Carey Show. But, he says, being big was a burden – and he had to make a change.
"It sucks being fat, you know," Carey, 52, said Wednesday at the CBS, Showtime and The CW TCA Party in Beverly Hills. "I was diabetic with Type-2 diabetes.”

EXPLAINED: Forget the computer company and the Beatles' publishing company as influences. Gwyneth Paltrow, 31, and Coldplay's Chris Martin, 27, were inspired by a friend to name their new baby girl (born Friday) Apple, reports Access Hollywood. Apparently, Martin's North American booking agent, Marty Diamond, has a daughter named Apple, and the couple asked his permission to give their child the same first name if they had a girl. As previously deciphered, the baby's middle names, Blythe and Alison, are the names of Paltrow's and Martin's mothers, respectively.
