Despite not being actual celebrities, and only gaining their fame through other reality shows as themselves, Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka are among the bigger names on this season of Dancing with the Stars, premiering tonight on ABC.
Kate has at least one fan pulling for her, too.
"Just met Kate Gosselin. Super nice!" The Bachelor star Twittered in typical lame, upbeat fashion. "I'm impressed the negative media hasn't affected her spirit."
Jake Pavelka continued his gushing over her: "Kate's a great person. I was happy to see her having fun with Tony [Dovolani], her dance partner," he Tweeted.
Of his partner Chelsie Hightower, Jake said: "Just finished almost 7hr practice. She kicked my butt, elbowed my eye and put me through the ringer! Felt Great!"
Which couple will advance farther on Dancing with the Stars?
Good to hear, Jake. Coming down to the wire, he writes: "It's crunch time now... Im getting an orangy colored spray tan. For camera purposes of course. LOL!"
LOL is right.
Pavelka's mom and dad are in Los Angeles to support his dance debut, and they're spending some quality time with his chosen Bachelor fiancee, Vienna Girardi.
"Had dinner at Asia de cuba with Jake's parents. Such amazing food," Girardi Twittered Sunday, adding that she and Jake are officially living together in L.A. "We moved in last night to our apartment. Love the area. Hate the traffic."
Jake, Kate, Erin Andrews, Chad Ochocinco, Buzz Aldrin and the rest of DWTS' Season 10 cast will cut a rug this evening on the hit show's opening night.
