'Dancing With The Stars' Cast Photos Unveiled
By PopEater Staff Posted Mar 5th 2010 04:00PM
The cast includes Pamela Anderson, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and reality stars Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka. Also competing for the mirrorball trophy will be: gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek, sportscaster Erin Andrews, singer Nicole Scherzinger, football star Chad Ochocinco and actors Shannen Doherty, Aiden Turner and Niecy Nash.
Rehearsals are now underway for all 11 couples, who will hit the ballroom floor on March 22 for the season 10 premiere on ABC.
"It's definitely one of our strongest cast lineups ever," said executive producer Conrad Green. "Pound for pound, it should be really fascinating watching."
The new dancers will train for three weeks before making their prime time premiere.
Green said his staff is enforcing limits on training time to avoid the spate of injuries that plagued last year's cast and caused two stars to drop out before the competition began.
'Baywatch' bombshell Pamela Anderson told PEOPLE that she's loving every minute of it and glad to be on the show this season. "I'm having the best time," Anderson said. "This will keep me out of trouble."
"It's stimulating mentally, physically and emotionally... It has my focus and I've always wanted to learn how to dance. Maybe I'll get in shape as well," she adds.
