Overall I have to say that I recognize more of these names than other recent seasons, so although they are not huge "stars" I at least don't have to google most of them.
Bristol could be annoying, but only half as annoying as her former finance would be, so I'll just smile and be glad he isn't on the show.
I'm glad not to see Ali. Yes, I liked Mellisa, but as another pointed out these crossovers from TB are better as an exception, not the rule.
I hope the rummor about Kate is not true, or if true, her special coorespondant role is very limited.
My main question: Is there a ringer? I don't follow Brandy much...will it be her?
