Dancing With the Stars All-Stars: First Photos!

by at . Comments

A dozen memorable Dancing With the Stars competitors are back for another crack at the Mirror Ball in the show's first-ever All-Star season this fall.

Bristol Palin, Pamela Anderson, Melissa Rycroft and 10 other celebs - one of which is still TBA - will return to the parquet with professional partners.

ABC released the first promotional pics of the pairs today. Here's Bristol Palin, who's been arguably the most controversial of the DWTS All-Stars thus far:

Hamming it up with Mark Ballas, her partner last year, single mom Palin shows off her sexy legs while giving the camera a silly face in her costumed pic.

"[Critics] are going to be talking about us either way. I might as well be doing something enjoyable and fun and with a good group," Bristol Palin said.

Also back: Pamela Anderson, Melissa Rycroft, Helio Castroneves, Kirstie Alley, Joey Fatone, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Kelly Monaco, Apollo Ohno, Emmitt Smith.

Sabrina Bryan, Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley are competing for the final spot, as determined by viewer votes. Check out the DWTS pics below!

I will not watch Dancing With The Stars ever again. Bristol Palin is not a star, she is a teenager who had a baby without the benefit of marriage. I will encourage everyone I know not to watch. I hope the ratings decline rapidly. POLITICS!!!!


hey rachel if you dont like what i said do me a fucken favor dont read it or ignore it and yeah i said what i said because i think palin is a waste of time and shes a fame whore!!


What a loser you are Ken1. I'm sure you are a slob, inside and out. And Jenn, did you need to write an essay about someone you don't like. Really!!


i use to love watching dancing with the stars but for the past couple of season i think the show is getting worse and worse and worse im sad to see it but bring back Palin is a huge mistake i hope she goes home the first week. but probably her mom will pay someone to keep her daughter on the show. insted of being on the show she should take care of her son and make sure he doesnt say the F word again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Shapeless calves, thick thighs and ankles. Yuk.


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
