Dancing With The Stars Season 18 Cast Announced

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Erin Andrews made her debut as new DWTS co-host on today’s Good Morning America to announce the Dancing With The Stars Season 18 cast. Already, she’s shown more life than her predecessor Brooke Burke-Charvet. I’m surprised it took producers this long to give Brooke the heave ho. Definitely a step in the right direction.

While not the most star-studded or exciting cast in recent years, there are a few notable names to keep an eye on. Being that I’m a Real Housewives addict, naturally I’m excited for NeNe Leakes. If she ends up winning the mirrorball, I fear for her ATL co-stars. She’ll be even more unbearable and entitled. In terms of eye candy, we get Big Time Rush’s James Maslow, NHL player Sean Avery and Winter Olympian Charlie White. The latter will face off his against his ice dancing partner Meryl Davis for the Season 18 title.

For those looking forward to seeing former sitcom stars back in the spotlight, you get three. The Wonder YearsDanica McKellar, Full House’s Candace Cameron-Bure and Drew Carey will all make you feel nostalgic. After a couple of seasons off, Maksim Chmerkovskiy makes his return to the ballroom.

Check out the rest of the cast below, along with which professional partner they’ve been paired with. In addition, find out ONE MAJOR TWIST producers have in store this year that will change the competition forever.

Dancing With The Stars Announces New Co-Host

The eliminations started early this season for Dancing With The Stars. Before its 18th season, producers have replaced two of the show’s mainstays. First Harold Wheeler and his orchestra were given the boot in favor of bandleader Ray Chew and now this. Brooke Burke-Charvet who replaced Samantha Harris is the latest casualty. Her departure was announced this past weekend.

“I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting DWTS but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture,” said Burke “I’ve always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn’t able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show. I’ve seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake.”

As long as Jack Osbourne doesn’t pull a miracle out of his ass, I’ll be fine with either Corbin Bleu or Amber Riley winning. I just wish the latter was paired up with someone else than Derek Hough. Does he really need another win under his belt. With that being said, I don’t think Amber would’ve done nearly as well without Derek’s insane choreography. He’s definitely the most talented out of the pros.

The show kicked off as the season began, with that wicked group number choreographed by Mandy Moore. After that, each of the stars danced an encore. My personal favorite retreads were Bill Nye’s “Weird Science” and Snooki’s “Work, Bitch.” The latter introduced a whackload of new dance moves. Lady Antebellum, Colbie Caillat, Enrique Iglesias and Swedish duo Ylvis all dropped by for the two-hour extravaganza. Being the cheesefest that DWTS is, everyone got into “The Fox” spirit and donned their faux animal ears. Can we put this novelty single to pasture to keep “Gangnam Style” company?

It’s also worth nothing that viewers picked Amber and Derek’s freestyle as the encore. Is that foreshadowing the winner or simply a red herring? I think the former, but anything can Ellie Goulding happen.

Next to the premiere, the freestyle episode is my favorite of any Dancing With The Stars season. As each year goes by, the professional dancers raise the bar and find new ways to highlight their respective celebrity. Tonight was no exception. Each wowed in their own special way.

The evening kicked off with each star revisiting a previous routine that the judges felt they could improve upon. In all honesty, producers could’ve scrapped this entire segment as the first hour felt more like a recap show. Been there, seen that. With exception to Amber Riley, the other three actually executed their encore dance worse than the first time, even with extra pointers from the judges. Must’ve been the nerves.

That was followed up with a samba relay where Corbin Bleu, rightfully so, scored the most points with Bill Engvall bringing up the rear (once again). Since the first two performances were pretty unremarkable except for Corbin looking especially hot, shirtless wearing yellow pants, I’m only embedding the freestyle dances. Check them out below and find out who fell just short of the mirrorball trophy.

DWTS 17: Can Bill Engvall Win The Mirrorball?

The above picture is exactly why I still watch Dancing With The Stars. Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, you’re one lucky beyotch.

With only a few more weeks left in the competition, the idea of Bill Engvall walking away with the Season 17 mirrorball trophy is a scary possibility. Despite being the lowest-scoring competitor the past five straight weeks, he’s still standing. At the very beginning, I was rooting for him because I love an underdog. In a season where there were plenty of ringers and him saddled with a newbie pro dancer, the odds were stacked up against him. But with each week, he gained fans with his likable personality and his steely determination.

When he outlasted Christina Milian, I chalked it up to plenty of capable dancers still remaining in the competition splitting the votes. Even when he knocked out Snooki and Brant Daugherty, I wasn’t hatin’ on him. That’s saying a lot considering how sexy Brant is. But with last night’s results, the gloves are off.

How dare he escape elimination over my man Val Chmerkovskiy… I mean Elizabeth Berkley. I guarantee had this new voting system NOT been implemented, Berkley would still be standing. I just can’t see America voting her out after that sexy threeway salsa with Gleb Savchenko and Val. Don’t take my word for it. Check it out below and compare it to Engvall’s salsa. There’s no contest.

Gladiators came out in full force for the Season 3 premiere of Scandal last Thursday. The ABC political drama roared back with a series best. It was up 71% over its year-ago season premiere and surpassed its previous series highs by 13%. The only show that fared better that night was CBS’ The Big Bang Theory. Looks like Olivia Pope isn’t just top dog in Washington, D.C. but on the Twitter-verse as well.

Nielsen in conjunction with SocialGuide began a new metric last week, tabulating the number of people tweeting about TV programs and the audience of people who actually view those Tweets. With social media becoming such an integral part of viewing, due to all those hashtags popping up on the bottom corner of the screen, it only makes sense this new chart exists. You can thank Pretty Little Liars for starting this trend.

Topping the first ever Top 10 chart, is none other than Scandal. The show notched almost 713,000 tweets in the seven hours before, during and after its premiere. Those tweets reached an audience of roughly 3.65 million unique Twitter users. Miley Cyrus dominated the next two spots with her MTV documentary and guest host stint on Saturday Night Live. Find out how many tweets she generated and the rest of the Top 10 below.

It’s been three years since Tyrell ranked the Dancing With The Stars‘ male professional dancers. Since several new pro hotties have joined the ABC dancing competition since, I thought it was time to reevaluate his rankings. Also, everyone has their own personal tastes and I wanted to share mine. If you’ve been reading the site for awhile now, I’m pretty sure you have an idea who top ballroom dog is in my book. Check out the studs below and be sure to sound off on my choices.

I don’t normally recap Dancing With The Stars, but since I’m enjoying this season so much, I thought I’d give it a try. There’s so many people I’m rooting for. Also, the fact the show airs only once a week now instead of two episodes, makes it much more manageable. I love that the performances and eliminations take place all in one jam-packed night. Much less unnecessary filler. However, the producers still manage to draw out the eliminations with their dramatic lighting and music.

The only thing I don’t like about the new format is the glitter pit replacing the celeb aquarium where the stars watched all the action from above. Also, was it necessary to move the judges to the other side of the dance floor? I digress. Check out week two’s performances below and find out who earned the unwanted distinction of being the first boot.
