Dancing with the Stars Profile: Jake Pavelka

Jake Pavelka burst onto The Hollywood Gossip scene via The Bachelorette. Then starred on The Bachelor, then immediately joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars.

Three reality shows in less than a year. Pretty impressive for a guy who claims to be a commercial pilot. In any case, Jake's pursuit of D-list stardom will not cease!

Despite the dubious reasons for Kate Gosselin becoming a household name, she's a bona fide celebrity now, and will compete on Dancing with the Stars Season 10!

Like fellow contestant Jake Pavelka, Kate is only famous for being on another TV show, and for the assorted celebrity gossip stories that followed in her personal life.

Evan Lysacek has already won Olympic glory at this year's Vancouver games. Can he achieve the rare combination of gold medal Dancing with the Stars disco ball?

In joining Dancing with the Stars, does Nicole Scherzinger have an unfair advantage? As a member of the Pussycat Dolls, the girl sort of dances for a living already.

Whatever. She may have the edge over Buzz Aldrin and Kate Gosselin, but Season 10 (premiering Monday) is wide open. Think Nicole has what it takes to triumph?

While not nearly as attractive as the other sports personality on season 10 of Dancing with the Stars (call us, Erin Andrews!), Chad Ochocinco should make for an interesting, talkative contestant.

The attention-loving wide receiver has played for the Cincinnati Bengals throughout his NFL career. Will that experience translate to DWTS success, as it has for past athletes such as Apolo Anton Ohno?

If the ratings for Dancing with the Stars rise on season 10 in the male demographic, there will be one person to thank for that uptick: Erin Andrews.

The gorgeous ESPN reporter has campaigned for awhile for a spot on the competition. Starting on March 22, she'll have her opportunity, going up against Kate Gosselin, Pamela Anderson and other aspiring hoofers.

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.
