Dancing With the Stars 2011 premieres tonight for its 12th season. This season there are the usual potpourri of athletes, singers, actors and other celebrities who will be competing for the mirrored disco ball trophy at the end of the season. Will you be watching?
The star line-up for the DWTS 12th season includes Playboy model and former ‘Girls Next Door’ Kendra Wilkinson, actress Kirstie Alley, actress Chelsea Kane, talk show host Wendy Williams, former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, ‘Karate Kid’ actor Ralph Macchio, football player Hines Ward, model Petra Nemcova, radio personality Mike Catherwood, wrestler Chris Jericho and rapper Romeo.
With no Bristol Palin involved in this years line-up of ‘stars’ there are predictions the ratings won’t be quite as good as last year. But Dancing with the Stars still falls just behind American Idol in the television rating game.
So far the biggest interest in Dancing With the Stars 2011 is how the hell does Randall Christensen and his team of wardrobe and costume designers get all those those perfectly fitting costumes made from week. I mean perfectly fitting to the celebrity as well as to the dance they are doing. That is totally impressive all by itself.
Dancing With the Stars 2011 premieres tonight. The two-hour premiere can be seen on ABC starting at 8 p.m.
