DWTS 2012 – Season 14 Cast Revealed and Season's Predictions

Wednesday, February 29, 2012


The unveiling of the NEW Dancing with The Stars Season 14 Cast is finally here!  The anticipation and rumors can be put to rest!  Here’s the new cast with their pro partners:


Donald Driver – “The Greenbay Packer” with Peta Murgatroyd


Gavin DeGraw – “The Platinum Pop Star” with Karina Smirnoff


Jack Wagner – “Soap’s Steamiest” with Anna Trebunskaya


Jaleel White – “The Sitcom Star” with Kym Johnson


Roshon Fegan – “Disney’s Triple Threat” with Chelsie Hightower


William Levy – “The Latin Hottie” with Cheryl Burke



Gladys Knight – “The Empress of Soul” with Tristan MacManus


Katherine Jenkins – “The Sexy Soprano (singer)” with Mark Ballas


Maria Menounos – “Hollywood’s Hottest Host” with Derek Hough


Martina Navratilova – “The Tennis Legend” with Tony Dovolani


Melissa Gilbert – “The Little House Legend” with Maksim Chmerkovskiy


Sherri Shepherd – “The View’s Sexiest” with Val Chmerkovskiy


Now that Dancing with the Stars is going on Season 14, it is a whole new game.  The casted pro partners are just as important as the selected “Stars”.  Their fans play a huge roll on the winner.

My initial opinion is it is going to be a Male Dominated season!  All of the men are handsome and are full of Charisma!

Disney Star Roshon Fegan with Chelsie Hightower should be a winning combination.  The smooth dances may be his nemesis though.  He is going have to work really hard to look strong.  Great posture will be a must!

Making it a long way should be Gavin Degraw with last year’s winner, Karina Smirnoff.  Gavin’s advantage is being confident as a stage performer and Karina will use this to their advantage.

Football player, Donald Driver, is probably going to be smooth; however, having a newcomer pro is going to prove to be difficult.  Final three, he will not be.

It’s great to see a latin TV star on the show and the ladies are going to eat him up!  Cheryl Burke partnering William Levy is going to be a sight to see!  Final three, probably!

Jack Wagner will make a good showing, but in the end will fall short of the mirror ball trophy.

Jaleel White has come a long way from those dorky Steve Urkel days.  He is confident and sporting a great physique.   Hopefully his pants will stay below the belly button.  Jaleel and Kym have a great chance of making it to the end!

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies!  You are going to have to really step it up to take the votes from this talented group of men.

In a nutshell, Gladys is class act, but won’t make it mid-season.  Katherine Jenkins is sexy, but will fall short on coordination.  The tennis star, Martina, will have a hard time taking her althletic ability and having it translate into grace.  Maria Menounos was on the out for me, but being partnered with Derek Hough will give her a fighting chance.

With the ladies, it should turn out to be the battle of the Chmerkovskiy’s!  Sherri Sheppard’s personality and passion will partner well with Val.  Melissa Gilbert isn’t on the prairie any more.  She’s going to hold her own with Maks and  the TV will be on fire!  Maks knows how to push ALL the right buttons, but it should pay off with some great dancing!

Last year, Dancing with the Star’s was the number one rated show. With the popularity of Ballroom dancing, I don’t foresee this changing any time soon!  Tune in and give me YOUR opinions.
