@stevieb  I have no clue who any of them are.


 

@mousiegirl- you've never heard of ANY of them?  Pop singer Debbie Gibson, Nick Lachey?  Drew Scott?  Barbara Corcoran?

 

Ill admit this isn't the most well known cast ever certainly, but I'm at least familiar with several of them.  And some I don't know at all. 


I knew most of them- except the athletes, baseball is my sport. Heart With Cheryl coming back i figured there'd be a football player type in the mix!! Woman Happy I hope Keo clicks with Barbara, I'm a big fan of Shark Tank and hope she does well! I also hope Lindsey Stirling performs this season, she's a terrific violinist.

I've been saying for a number of years now that the "stars" are actually the pros - look how many are excited to see Cheryl and Mark back, along with Maks and Peta - and the "celebrity dancers" are just (for the most part) "sort of famous people" who are dancing with them! Smiley Wink

If you know a.n.y pop culture, you'll know most.

 

DWTS has gotten a certain formula down pat:

- couple of sports dudes

- a stiff older person

- someone who is famously physically impaired

- several hot former movie/musical stars

- several lukewarm current movie/musical stars

Every.

Single.

Time.

Re: Season 25 DWTS Cast Announced

How many times now has Maks cried wolf about not ever doing the show again?

Your post brings to mind Daniel Craig saying he'd rather slash his wrists than play James Bond again, and here is is in the next Bond film.  He said he made that earlier statement right after filming the last one and was in a totally different frame of mind than now (and of course all the $$$ offered to do another Bond film).  


@Pearlee - And don't forget Sean Connery, who said he would never again play James Bond then made Never Say Never Again in 1983! (DH and DS are both huge Bond fans!). He told his wife Micheline he was done after he made Diamonds Are Forever in 1971. She actually suggested the title after they convinced Connery to come back.  Never Say Never Again WAS Connery's last one - Roger Moore did one more, then the role went to Timothy Dalton for the next two. Smiley Wink

@Pearlee Wasn't it Debbie Boone who sang "You Light Up My Life"?

@Krimpette  Oh for goodness sakes!  You are absolutely right - I just Googled it. Thank you!   But in that case...I don't know who Debbie Gibson is either!  Smiley Happy

@gidgetgh  Oh, Debbie Gibson, I remember her from way back,  and that is it.  I will have to google, if I decide I care, lol, to see what they do for a living.

Re: Season 25 DWTS Cast Announced

I know who 7 of them are.  I hope Barbara Corcoran can dance, because I'd like to see Keo have a good partner.
