This season there are some new names partnering the professionals! One that I am very excited to see is Val Chmerkovskiy brother of resident hottie Maks! Also – Anna is back this season as is Derek Hough. Derek is a 4-time mirror ball champ and being paired with charisma queen Ricki Lake may be ideal.

Check below to see the official pairings:

  • Ron Artest dancing with Peta Murgatroyd (new)
  • David Arquette dancing with Kym Johnson
  • Chaz Bono dancing with Lacey Schwimmer
  • Elisabetta Canalis dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy (new)
  • Kristen Cavallari dancing with Mark Ballas
  • Nancy Grace dancing with Tristan McManus (new)
  • Rob Kardashian dancing with Cheryl Burke
  • Carson Kressley dancing with Anna Trebunskaya
  • Ricki Lake dancing with Derek Hough
  • J.R. Martinez dancing with Karina Smirnoff
  • Chynna Phillips dancing with Tony Dovolani
  • Hope Solo dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
I love Lacey but I am not sure that she is going to be strong enough to make Chaz into a great dancer. Maks has a great chance at finally winning the championship if Hope Solo has even the tiniest bit of appeal to match all of her athleticism.
What do you think?
