The Official Dancing with the Stars 9 Cast

Dancing with the Stars

may be facing stiff competition from So You Think You Can Dance this fall, but it will do so with its largest field yet.

As usual, ABC has roped in a handful of athletes, some reality stars, a few models and a number of D-listers. But unlike previous rounds, DWTS will now also feature it’s first disgraced politician.
