HOLLYWOOD - The co-hosts of Dancing With The Stars Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet are back and so is the team of professional dancers.
And this year, as in years past, a lot of the celebrities are not exactly household names.
As noted by Pico de Gallo of Tittle Tattle Tonight, some of the more well known names include tennis legend Martina Navratilova who will be partnered with Tony "I Survived Kate Gosselin" Dovolani.
Melissa Gilbert who starred as the Old West's first female bronc buster on the television show Little House On The Prairie is paired with Maksim "The Bad Boy of The Ballroom" Chmerkovskiy.
And Gladys Knight, 67, who gained world wide fame as lead singer, group cook, and band bus driver for Gladys Knight & The Pips will be dancing with Tristan "Irish Spring" McManus, who last year had his hands full with Nancy "Butterball" Grace.
One very attractive celebrity dancer that many people will recognize is the stunningly sexy Maria "Mmmm-Mmmm" Menounos, co-host of Extra who has been paired with none other than the "Dancing Dude" himself Derek Hough.
The Menounos-Hough team will certainly be the best-looking couple on the DWTS dance floor.
De Gallo pointed out that one of the lesser known celebrities includes William "El Jalapeño" Levy, who is considered to be the "Brad Pitt of Mexico." Levy will be dancing with Cheryl "The Filipino Firecracker" Burke.
Others whose names may not ring a bell include Katherine Jenkins, Roshon Fegan, Jaleel White, Jack Wagner, Donald Driver, and Gavin DeGraw.
