Dancing With the Stars Lineup TBA Tonight!

Tonight's the night!  DWTS announced the season 11 lineup.  On the women's side:
  1. Brandy
  2. Jennifer Grey
  3. Margaret Cho
  4. Audrina Patridge
  5. Florence Henderson
  6. Bristol Palin
Well, so far there's no definite ringer.  Last season, Nicole Scherzinger was a shoe in from episode 1.  It kind-of took away from the excitement.  Then there was Evan Lysacek.  I guess he struggled because he had a hard time pointing his toes and being...not-lyrical (I don't know what the opposite of lyrical is).  Jennifer Grey might have a little more dance experience than the others, but Patrick Swayze might have had something to say about what kind of partner she'll make.  I smell drama.  Audrina Patridge doesn't appear too promising.  She's attractive and will look goo din all of those skimpy outfits, but she doesn't strike me as someone who would be very coordinated.  She's all legs and arms.  Margaret Cho--I can't imagine her having the greatest attitude.  Bristol Palin--why?  Just why?  What did she do to earn a spot on DWTS?  She wound up pregnant out of wedlock.  I'm sorry that doesn't take talent and it doesn't make you a star to be danced with on national television.  It just doesn't recommend her to me as a viewer.  Florence Henderson?  Oh, please, don't let this be another Buzz Aldrin catastrophe.  Don't get me wrong.  Go Buzz! for getting out there.  But you and I both know that there were moments when it was just painful to watch.  Paaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiinfuuuuuuuuuuuuulll.  And slow.  Brandy--hmmmmm.  I don't really like her, and there's no good reason why.  I just don't like her.  There's no reason.  I just don't.

And the guys:
  1. Michael Bolton
  2. Rick Fox
  3. David Hasselhoff
  4. Kyle Massey
  5. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino
  6. Kurt Warner

Ok, I don't really have much to say here.  Michael Bolton--no particular expectations.  Rick Fox--who is that?  Basketball player...hmph.  David Hasselhoff.  Hope he stays sober.  Kyle Massey.  Really?  That's so not Raven.  I'll be interested to see how "The Situation" handles ballroom.  I have a hard time believing that he can channel all of that machismo into twinkle toes.  Kurt Warner--I thought we already had our token male athlete.  Guess it's a two-for.

Honestly, I'm really not too jazzed about this season's lineup, but it's something to watch.  Maybe it will all turn out for the best.  When you go in with no expectations, you usually find yourself pleasantly surprised.
