The new cast of Dancing with the Stars is filled with more familiar names than usual.
Kate Gosselin? Erin Andrews? Jake Pavelka? These people have been in the news for months.
But on the professional side, there's someone who is a total stranger to anyone that's not a hardcore dance enthusiast: Damian Whitewood.
This Australian will make his DWTS debut on March 22. He's partered with Pamela Anderson and we can report the following facts about Whitewood:
- He's spent the last few years touring with a production of "Burn the Floor."
- He's represented Australia in the Worlds Youth Latin in Germany, the Worlds Youth Ballroom in Russia and was a semifinalist at the Blackpool International Championships in Great Britain.
- He's appeared on Dancing With The Stars Down Under, as well as on the Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance.
Based on this resume, it doesn't sound like Damian needs our advice. But we have this word to the Samba-ing wise: wear a mouthpiece. Anderson's breasts could be dangerous weapons.
