    This morning the cast was announced for season 16:


    Zendaya Coleman - Disney Star ("Shake It Up!")
    Andy Dick - comedian
    D.L. Hughley - Comedian, Writer ("The Hughleys")
    Dorothy Hamill - US Olympic Gold Medal Figure Skater
    Jacoby Jones - Football Player (Baltimore Ravens)
    Wynonna Judd - Country Singer
    Victor Ortiz - Boxing Champion
    Kellie Pickler - Country Singer
    Ingo Rademacher - Soap Star ("General Hospital")
    Aly Raisman - US Olympic Women's Gymnastics Team Captain
    Lisa Vanderpump - Reality Show star


    My personal comments:


    I'm at least passing knowledgeable of most of this cast; there's only one flat-out "huh? who?" and that is Vanderpump. I don't follow boxing at all, but even I have heard of Ortiz. I'm particularly psyched about Wynonna and Kellie Pickler, both of whom I am a huge fan, and Dorothy Hamill. Now for the blunt part: Andy Dick makes me physically ill. Literally. I watched the intros this morning, and when he walked out, I felt like I was going to throw up. How they can let that particular sorry piece of supposed humanity on this show is beyond me. It will be a mercy if he is among the first to go.

    I want to add the pro-celebrity pairings:


    Cheryl Burke -- D. L. Hughley


    Derek Hough -- Kellie Pickler


    Gleb Savchenko -- Lisa Vanderpump


    Karina Smirnoff -- Jacoby Jones


    Kym Johnson -- Ingo Rademacher


    Lindsay Arnold -- Victor Ortiz


    Mark Ballas -- Aly Raisman


    Sharna Burgess -- Andy Dick


    Tony Dovolani -- Wynonna Judd


    Tristan MacManus -- Dorothy Hamill


    Val Chmerkovskiy -Zendaya Coleman


    Two new pro's and one promoted Troupe Dancer and who is missing: Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Anna Trebunskaya, Chelsie Hightower and Louis van Amstel


    There are rumors that Peta Murgatroyd & Sean Lowe will be the twelfth couple in the show.

    I'll tell you, my predictions (what few I made) weren't even close. I predicted that Cheryl Burke would be paired with Jones, Derek Hough with either Raisman or Vanderpump, and Kellie Pickler would have gotten Louis Van Amstel.


    Also...who is Sean Lowe? I mean, I know, but one Reality person is enough. They really don't need 2. Zero would have been better.
