You guys WATCH this show, but you hate TALKING about it. Nonetheless, here's the new cast list for you to remark upon.
With "Stars" listed first, the couples are: Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus William Levy & Cheryl Burke Maria Menounos & Derek Hough Martina Navratilova & Tony Dovolani Sherri Shepherd & Valentin Chmerkovskiy Jack Wagner & Anna Trebunskaya Jaleel White & Kym Johnson
I dunno - I have a sneaky suspicion that some of those dudes are REALLY, REALLY OLD.
Originally posted by Matt TrackerWonder if the folks so upset by Chaz Bono's presence on the show will balk at Martina's.
I honestly don't think so...transgender is the "new kid on the block" in regards to sexual preference issues and arguably the most "shocking". I think the general public's acceptance of gay/lesbian celebrities (reality stars) is pretty high.
Now if they had chosen to have her dance with a woman, you'd probably have the same crowd getting up in arms.
I'm just gobsmacked at Donald Driver being on this. I mean, *I* love him to death, but I'm not convinced he's at all a household name, except by fantasy football players from 2002 to 2009. Even from a Packers standpoint: a) it's a year late for that* b) he's a strange Packer to choose. Why not Rodgers for starpower, Jennings for charm and charisma, or even Raji for the fat man factor?
Worst of all, now I have to actually watch the show. Would it be too much to actually wear my Driver jersey during the broadcast?
*Although I did hear that Victor Cruz turned it down, which makes much more sense.
The Big Bossman raised the briefcase.

Thanks for the compliment, pieman. I had three of the four right last week, but I had Bucky going out. Of course, Patrick was the one out. I had Heather at #3, which was barely in for next week, and then voted out next Thursday.
