Bristol also seems a strange choice because the comments on the ABC website seem to suggest she isn't popular with the majority of fans. (if so, how did she get to the final?)
Bristol was very polarizing. Her fanbase was huge, but virtually everyone else hated her. I think a lot of it was because of Mummy.

I think the selection of male contestants is good but the females are questionable. I enjoyed watching Pamela, Bristol and Kelly and look forward to seeing them again but I would have preferred three celebrities with more natural ability.

I think it's a little strange to have Shawn, Gilles and Melissa all competing since they all made the final in the same season.

Disappointed that Mel B will not be participating. I guess she was too busy to take part.

I suppose she's the token "controversial" contestant.

The female line-up is very underwhelming

Looking forward to seeing Apollo, Helio and Giles, the female celebs, Shawn and Sabrina fine and Pammy too, but what the heck, who came up with Bristol, please no, stopped watching the series she was in.

Thought we would see the best of the best, for the All Stars cast, Like others have said, it's somewhat underwhelming. I want to see a real competiton, with the creme de la creme from past series, imo this isn't hitting the mark

Suppose Julianne won't be back, so I will be interested to see who Apollo and Helio are paired with. I would have liked Mel B back with Maks too. Feel a bit half hearted about watching this series.

Only Maks, Tony, Mark, Kym and Cheryl--half the cast--can possibly be paired with their original partners. Unless they bring back Julianne Hough, Damian Whitewood and/or Alec Mazo.

If Carson gets voted the wildcard slot it's possible he could be paired with Anna again.

Kelly Monaco hinted long ago that IF she came back and IF she were paired with Derek, etc. So it sounds like that's who she wants.

Deena Katz says she pairs the couples according to height, first, then personality.

Cheryl Burke said she only wanted to dance with Gilles, and Gilles said he only wanted to dance with Cheryl. So I'd be surprised if they were paired with anyone but each other. And it's a good bet they'll pair Maks and Kirstie, and Tony and Melissa Rycroft. And probably Kym with Joey. That's 4, and Mark will undoubtedly be paired with one of his old partners, either Bristol, or Shawn, or Sabrina, if she gets the wildcard slot.

Maks said some old pros would be leaving and some new ones would be coming in. Who knows how much he knows, if anything.

He'd certainly have been a more interesting choice than Bristol! At least he was funny at times and he genuinely didn't care about the competition at all.

I hope Sabrina gets the wildcard slot. There aren't enough good female dancers as it is. Carson was mildly amusing at the beginning, but we've seen all he has to offer. Kyle was just a bit "meh" for me.

Yes, ABC has a page listing the returning professionals:

Anna, Chelsie, Cheryl, Karina, Kym, Peta, Derek, Maks, Mark, Tony, Tristan and Val. They will add one more when the wildcard has been chosen.

http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/dancing.../professionals

They also have a page for returning judges and hosts--same as before.

I likes Kirstie's Cha Cha in week one, but none of her other dances were all that great. I can't say I'm all that excited to have her back, particularly as Mel isn't in the show. Knowing that she is an avid scientologist doesn't exactly help either.

Two things:

1) Anna can't be paired with Carson again, or Mark with Sabrina, even if they win the wildcard vote. Because the pairs are going to be announced August 13, eleven days before wildcard voting ends on August 24.

2) ABC's page of professional dancers may not have been updated from last season. When you click on Tristan's photo, it says he will be dancing with Miss Gladys Knight. Conrad Green supposedly said they will 'tweak' the judges, but again, ABC's page of judges & hosts show the same ones as before.

I actually think that a man will will again because not only were they very popular with the public but they were also very good. Its going to be a very interesting season

It sure looks that way. We don't know yet who the wildcard is going to be, but of this list I'd wager two of the women will make early exits.

The pros were announced too except for the wildcard one, and they're the same as last season: Anna, Chelsie, Cheryl, Derek, Karina, Kym, Mark, Maks, Peta, Tony, Tristan and Val. Derek did an interview saying this was probably his swan song because he wants to move on and do other things, and DWTS takes up too much of his time to be able to do that.

Kelly Monaco more-or-less said in a soap opera fan event last weekend that she thought she'd be with Derek. Kirstie was on Good Afternoon America and more or less said she knew who her partner was and it wasn't Maks. She's a pretty big woman so I think it has to be Tony.

I don't believe the pros have been announced. The DWTS pro page hasn't been updated since last season. If you click on Tristan's photo, it says he will be dancing with Miss Gladys Knight. And Maks said some pros wouldn't be returning and there would be some new ones.

Some pros have said they will return--Derek, Cheryl, Mark, Tony--but Louie said "maybe."

But Kirstie said her partner wasn't Maks? Wow, I'm surprised.

I'm confused. Someone else said Kirstie never said Maks wasn't going to be her partner but I haven't seen any video where she supposedly talked about it. Guess we just have to wait and see.

Karina and Helio they actually look good together, probably just a tease, but if Julianne is not coming back, they could be a good pairing.

This pairing could grow on me, but could be disappointed.

I like it!!! Someone guessed that pairing yesterday, so I'll have to take a closer look at their other guesses:

Apollo & Anna
Drew & Chelsie or Lacey
Helio & Karina
Shawn & Derek
Emmitt & Peta
Kelly & Tristan
Pamela & Val
Bristol & Mark
