Apolo is a DWTS All-Star!  
So Dancing With the Stars announced their ALL-STARS line-up and surprisingly (for me) Apolo Anton Ohno is one of the dancers. This is bittersweet for me because he's my all-time favorite contestant on there, but, but, but ... APOLIANNE!!! I loved me Apolo AND Julianne and I doubt very, very, very highly that she'll be there. Fingers crossed he'll get Chelsie or Anna as a partner. Ah, but memories ...

BTW: The full cast list (bolded are my faves) -- Gilles Marini, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson, Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, Helio Castroneves, Joey Fatone, Drew Lachey, Bristol Palin (WTF!), Apolo Anton Ono, Kirstie Alley and Emmit Smith.

I actually do think it's pretty cool that they have quite a few winners here.

ETA: Apparently, Kelly is partnered with Derek Hough.

This is so bizarre -- in a year, I'll have had my favorite contestants from Survivor (Boston Rob), Big Brother (Dan) and DwtS (Drew) back on their respective shows. What's next? David Cook on All-Star Idol? ;)

Was Rob only on a Survivor in a year's span? Seems so much longer ago.

Man, I've thought of an All-Star Idol lots.

Looks like a pretty good cast, with the except of Bristol Palin and Pam Andersonn (although at least Pam was funny). I always thought Helio Castroneves was overrated; the only reason he won was because he was paired with Julianne.

It sucks that not all of the stars will have their original partners, though.

I actually was surprised by how much I liked Pam on there. Yes, to Helio. I actually don't think they should pair any of the dancers with their original partners (sorry Kirstie/Maks!) because it would be unfair to the other dancers since previous partnered pairs would have REALLY in-built fanbases. I mean, imagine if Julianne was still there. She and Apolo would run away with the competition again even more so this time. (From what I've read, they were like their most popular couple. Could have changed since that was season 04, but I know that as of a few years they still were the most-vote-getting couple ever.)

Aside from Apolo and Kirstie, I personally think this cast blows. I'll be sitting this season out.

Ugh, Bristol Palin. Why do networks keep putting her on TV? Major, major fail ABC. You lost me as a viewer this season.

Yeah, the cast blows, but I ADORE Apolo and really loved Kirstie, so I'm sooooooooo there.

Palin, though? UGH!

Like you, I was a HUGE Apolianne fan so I'm kind of dreading this All Stars season because we know there is no way in hell Julianne will be back and if she does come back, who's to say they'll partner her again with Apolo (or Helio for that matter)? I just hope Apolo wins it all again because he's my favorite contestant ever and I hope he gets partnered with Anna!

I'm 100% positive that if Julianne came back, Apolo would get her. However, I really, really don't think she'll come back.

I want him partnered with Chelsie, then Anna. I really don't want him with Cheryl or Karina though. :(
