Especially Valerie. I know she is so happy to do the show but Tristan could barely get a word in lol.
Exactly she is happy naturally, but can see the whole series is going to be similar questions for her. She fended some of it off well, but it can overshadow the dancing a bit. Not saying in Valerie's case but in some others, they like the sound of their own voices, it is a partnership after all.

Yes it is a nice photo of them, haven't a clue who she is mind
She is making huge headlines here in the US because she left the Scientology Church and is very vocal about it. She is an actress (she played at Save by the Bell ) and King of the Queens (I believe that's the name of the serie ). So she is very popular and likeable from what I gathered. She has a very strong personality as well so it will be interesting to see how her and Tony work together .
Kirstie Alley who always get along so well with the Chmerkovsky clan (Maks, Val, Tony ) always throw a support at their partners but this season I am sure that this wont be the case because Kirstie is a Scientologist
Anyways I can already see a lot of drama and mayhem this season

Oh here is another problem that Elisabeth may encounter; Leah also played at Save by the Bell (this is why some blogs are referring to this cast as a SBTB reunion ) so when it comes to voters these 2 could split votes and I can see Leah outlasting her.

Anyways let me stop rambling lol .

I understand
I barely know most of the cast of Strictly so I had to google some of them to know who they are. I only knew Abbey clancy because as a avid football fan I know who Peter Crouch is ; Ben Cohen, Dave, Julien, Susanna and Vanessa F....The rest I had to google lol.

Anyways , I am getting off-topic here lol.

If you remember, when they announced the cast wednesday Leah was noticeably absent, she was still in L.A so she didn't make the trip like everyone. So some people are already saying that the scientologists are keeping her as a " prisoner " , watching her every move , and since she didn't seem like her usual self ( which is upbeat/cheerful) in that interview with Tony wednesday, some people are saying that they are probably trying to control her or scare her off .

This sound like a good drama movie but I am telling you that this is what people are saying. I kid you not that I saw it last Wednesday at CNN. Cnn of all places . I am going to try find that clip.

This season is going to be interesting and dramatic I can see it already.

Saw this posted on tumblr. I don't know if there really is any true ringers this season because most of the cast has dance experience of some sort. IMO the whole ringer debate last season with Zendaya got exhausting and down right nasty. Hoping for a "ringer-free-dance-debate" season. Here's hoping

DWTS Season 17 Stars w/ Dance Experience…


Ok, let’s just get this out of the way. Here is a breakdown of the current stars and their dance experience going into the show.

WOMEN:

Valerie Harper (74)-Studied Ballet and Dance in New York while in high school. Also, danced on broadway in shows choreographed by famous dancer Michael Kidd!

Snooki (25)-She admitted during the GMA cast announcement that she had 8 years of Gymnastics lessons and was a cheerleader.

Christina Milian (31)-Danced in her music videos and had a lead role in one of the Bring it On films which feature cheer leading dance ability.

Elizabeth Berkley (41)-Studied ballet as a child into high school age. Performed in some broadway shows and was a dancer in the movie Showgirls.

Amber Riley (27)-Has been dancing choreographed routines for the past four seasons on Glee.

Leah Remini (43)-No Dance Experience

MEN

Keyshawn Johnson (41)-No actual dance training but athletic training from college until retiring in 2006.

Brant Daugherty (28)-No Dance Experience.

Corbin Bleu (24)-Has studied Ballet and Jazz as well as trained at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. He has also been in several broadway shows including the lead in Footloose! Plus, he danced in all 3 High School Musical films.

Bill Nye (57)-Is a self-proclaimed avid Swing Dancer and goes to dance events like Stompology.

Bill Engvall (56)-No Dance Experience.

Jack Osbourne (27)-No Dance Experience.

————

The youngest contestant is 24 and the oldest 74. Only 4 out of the 12 contestants have no prior dance training. That’s pretty big considering so many people complain about how they shouldn’t have anyone with dance experience.

So basically if you are one of those people who likes to vote for non-experienced Stars you have 4 choices. Leah, Brant, Bill Engvall or Jack.

But if you like to be entertained there are 8 more Stars ready to dance for those votes!

Thanks for that - interesting reading .

I like the sound of 'Stompology'

I'm going for Valerie as my Ringer of the Day
