Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louisvan Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.
Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”
That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.
