No, try as I might, I could not stomach to watch The Bachelor. Instead, I read it on the Internet this morning.
Soooo, here is the cast, courtesy of The LA Times
Transcribed from the original LA Times article, with some Belfebe notes added.
-- Actor Ralph Macchio will revisit the "wax on, wax off" technique ... only he'll be using his feet to add some sheen to the dance floor.
--Romeo Miller has dropped the "Lil' " from his name, and now Master P's son is ready to take on the dancing world. Perhaps the training he got as a USC basketball player will help? Given his record ... maybe not.
-- Playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson will add sashaying and shimmying (things we're sure she's familiar with) to diaper-changing and other mommyhood duties. And we'll hear that ever-pleasant laugh in yet another forum. (Note from Belfebe: I have been saying for years that they should invite her.)
--Model Petra Němcová will put those long legs to use this season ... and we can hear Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino now, cursing ABC for not waiting to put him on this season.
-- Wrestler Chris Jericho is ditching the mat for the hardwood. Let's hope he doesn't accidentally body-slam his partner. (Note from Belfebe: I am soooooo looking forward to this one!)
-- Former "Cheers" star -- and Jenny Craig alum -- Kirstie Alley proved she could take dance instruction from John Travolta in "Look Who's Talking." Maybe those skills will transfer over?
-- Outspoken radio and TV personality Wendy Williams doesn't mince her words. Can she keep her foot out of her mouth long enough to prance around the floor? (Note from Belfebe: Joel McHale is going to have a field day with her every Friday on The Soup)
-- Actress Chelsea Kane -- who previously went by Chelsea Staub -- hails from the school of Disney, having appeared on "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "Jonas L.A., " just to name a few. Will her young following be enough to keep her in the game?
-- Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard has sparred with the best of them. Perhaps Evander Holyfield will pass along to him some helpful hints about how to jab with his feet, not fists. Wait ... that might not be such a good thing. (Note from Belfebe: Another favorite of mine. He's light on his feet and he's got the charisma. We shall see.)
-- Hines Ward, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is in good company with his fellow footballers-turned-dancers. The show has been good to NFL stars, with Emmitt Smith winning and Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor, Chad Ochocinco, Warren Sapp, Lawrence Taylor and Kurt Warner all competing and (some of them) doing well. Maybe Kroy Biermann (from the Atlanta Falcons or "Real Housewives of Atlanta, whichever is your pleasure) was busy?
-- If sex is like dancing, does that mean shelling out sex advice will translate to awesome dance moves? Or the opposite? We'll find out when "Loveline" co-host Michael "Psycho Mike" Catherwood steps on the stage. (Note from Belfebe: Who?)
And tttthat's it folks. Surveys and silliness will abound when the show starts...
