Karina Smirnoff

Following the Monday night announcement of the dull cast of Dancing With The Stars, ABC is now revealing the professional/celebrity pairings!

The most talked about “star” this season is Jersey Shore break out star The Situation, who will be paired off with pro dancer Karina Smirnoff.

This marks Karina’s return to the show since her last appearance on season 9. Also returning this season is Karina’s ex-fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy who is paired up with Singer/Actress Brandy.

And while the 11th season doesn’t premiere until Sept. 20, Bristol Palin is already bringing the lols as she tells PEOPLE magazine she will be wearing modest outfits on the show. “I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that’s who I am,” said Bristol. Allrighty then.

Below is the full list of the celebrities and their partners.

  • Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower
  • Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel
  • Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke
  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
  • David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnso
  • Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas
  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
  • Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani
  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff
  • Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya

After weeks of speculation, the ABC network finally unveiled the new cast of Dancing With The Stars last night.

The big reveal, done press conference style, was however a tad uneventful as the names of 11 of the 12 cast members had already leaked thanks to multiple media outlets. The only star who’s name was not leaked? Turned out to be Disney actor Kyle Massey. Kyle starred on Disney’s hit show That’s So Raven, which might or might not be one of the best shows in Disney’s history.

And despite the rumors she started herself on twitter, Teresa Giudice is not a part of the cast. No Bravo reality star is a part of the cast, though we still think throwing a housewife into the mix would have been genius.

So the official DWTS 11 cast includes Brandy; Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey; Comedian Margaret Cho; The Hills alum Audrina Patridge; Florence Henderson; Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton; Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino; David Hasselhoff; NBA champion Rick Fox; NFL quarterback Kurt Warner; & Disney star Kyle Massey.

ABC will officially reveal the professional partners of the stars tomorrow. It is rumored that Karina Smirnoff will be partnered up with The Situation, while Florence Henderson will be partnered with Corky Ballas.

Bristol Palin appeared on GMA today with her partner Mark Ballas (let the romance rumors begin!) “I just wanted to do it because it’s so fun,” she told UsWeekly at a DWTS press conference Monday night. “It’s positive and it’s a good competition. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and have a good time.”

As for her famous mom Sarah Palin, Bristol reveals she is very supportive. “She’s always been my No. 1 fan,” said Bristol, 19. “Of course, she’ll be down here [cheering me on].”

Though Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his dancing partner Debi Mazar were eliminated two weeks ago from Dancing With The Stars , he will be returning this week. Usmagazine confirms that Derek Hough has temporarily left the reality competition due to an illness. Maks will assist Derek’s partner Joanna Krupa during rehearsals. However, it is not known who her on air partner will be during Monday’s show.

This past Thursday, Derek took to his twitter page and wrote “I think I’m getting the [flu],” he wrote, noting “serious sweats . . . My whole body is aching like crazy I can barely stand up . . . And I’m coughing like crazy.”

A few hours later, he wrote of his doctor’s visit. “Had a temperature of 104 . . . Had a n IV in my arm for 2 hrs . . . Maks is steppin up for me helpin jo . . “

Maksim’s return may seem awkward since his ex-fiancée Karina Smirnoff (they broke off their engagement last month) is still present on the show.
