DWTS Betsey Johnson

ABC unveiled the Dancing with the Stars season 19 cast this morning on Good Morning America. Cheech and Chong star Tommy Chong and reality TV star Betsey Johnson were my biggest surprises. Need I say more about the rest?

Most of the rumors were true. Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson will dance. When asked how her family reacted to the news, Sadie said, “They thought it was hilarious. We don’t really have that much dancing experience in the family, but it’s going to be really funny to see them all at the show.” 

But a few of the rumors missed the mark. Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman did not make the cut. I’m not sad about it. Oh, you know who else is missing? THE STARS. Seriously, if I have to Google more than half of the cast, they are not stars. <sigh> Check out the complete list below and let us know what you think.
