    Credentials of the pros:
    Ethan Burgess-Pairs competitor with Laura Lepzinski. Finished 9th at US Nationals in 2009 and 16th in 2010.
    Brooke Castile-Pairs competitor with Ben Okolski, US Champ in 2007, 3rd in 2008, 5th in 2009 and 4th in 2010.
    Fred Palascak-Pairs competitor with Melanie Lambert. Highest US Nationals finish was 9th in 1996. Prominent coach and Dancing on Ice star.
    Keana McLaughlin-Pairs competitor with Rockne Brubaker. US Nationals champ 2008 and 2009, 5th in 2010. Everyone expected them to continue, but they split in June, ostensibly so Keana could "concentrate on high school". Rockne has a new partner and hopes to compete at Nationals this year.
    Denis Petukov-Ice Dance competitor with Melissa Gregory. US Nationals perennial 2nd place in the early 2000s. Prominent coach and choreographer. My pick to go far.
    Jennifer Wester-Ice Dance competitor with Danil Barantsev. Best US Nationals finish was 5th in 2008.

    The only "star" I know out of the whole bunch is Sean Young.

    I know most of the skaters. Denis should be really good and I expect him to be an excellent teacher. Keauna is a 2 time national pairs champion and was the US national champion up until last year. She is gorgeous to boot. She will likely do well depending on who she's paired with.

    I think the women celebrities have the advantage in this competition because their professional partners can do more lifts with them than the male celebrities will be able to do with their partners.

    Aceon6 - where did you find the pro list and did they announce the matchups?

    Tilden posted it. See post #12 in this thread.

    That's a pretty small cast - sort of like the first season of DWTS.

    UGh Rebecca Budig cannot stand that woman on AMC, and the fact I know none of the pro skaters. No thank you. I was looking forward to the show because I thought that Apolo would be on, but this mess I will pass.

    Sorry, but most of those "stars" have never illuminated for me.
    That's what I heard. I'm not entirely sure they'll get a sizeable audience to have it really matter. But ABC probably recognizes the impact the pros have on DWTS voting, so they might not want that happening here. I've heard of 4 of those "stars", but I could only pick Rebecca and Vince out of a line up. I only know of Rebecca because she was once on my soap, Guiding Light (didn't she marry some guy from The Bachelor, too?)

    That's a pretty small cast - sort of like the first season of DWTS.
    I bet it's a one time thing, and will last long enough to fill the gap from now until The Bachelor starts (in January, right?)

    Sometimes trainwrecks are the most fun to watch. I think this might be a very big trainwreck. How come Snookie isn't a contestant?
    I'm thinking her poof would throw her off balance on skates.

    I would watch that, just to see the men in tiny little speedos, snick, snick.
