Thirteen celebrities and their pro partners hit the dance floor Monday night during the premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.’

The vibe during the two-hour kick off was anything but normal. The majority of the returning celebs either won or took second place during their previous stint so humble behavior was in short supply.

Drew Lachey and Kirstie Alley were bordering on arrogant, pro Val Chmerkovskiy was practically salivating in the presence of Kelly Monaco and Pamela Anderson was more of a hot mess than usual.

The former Playboy model was at a distinct disadvantage, having been brought back because of her sex appeal and not her dance skills. She wallowed at the bottom of the pack after her lackluster Cha Cha with a lowly 17 points. Clearly out of her comfort zone among the cream of the crop from previous seasons, she cried and pulled at her hair while waiting for the judges scores.

The judges agreed that the most improved dancer among the returning group is Bristol Palin. That said, she is still hanging near the bottom of the standings.

Sarah Palin‘s daughter looks quite different too, having lost weight and undergone facial reconstruction surgery to change her chin line and elongate her features.

The strongest performances last night were executed by Emmitt Smith, who won season three and Gilles Marini, who was runner-up on season eight.

If viewers vote based on judges scores it looks like Pam will get her walking papers tonight. Check out her performance below:
