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.

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.
