Following the season 12 cast announcement for Dancing With the Stars earlier this week, the pairings for the new season were unveiled on Wednesday.
The couples are as follows: Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel; Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas; Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani; Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin; Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke; Romeo and Chelsie Hightower; Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer; Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya; Hines Ward and Kym Johnson; and Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff.
The stars have three weeks to prepare for the March 21 premiere, and while dancer Kym Johnson “can’t wait” to get started, she revealed to In Touch her celebrity crush of this season.
“The Karate Kid! I had such a big crush on him when I was a kid, so I got a bit starstruck when I saw him!” she said. “I think that's cool that he's going to be on the show and I think he's going to be quite good, you know, if he's still got some of those moves from The Karate Kid, if he's flexible.”
As for which star will provide us with the most entertainment, Kym is positive Wendy Williams’ “larger than life” personality will make audiences laugh.
“I met her and she's hysterical, really fun. She was with a few of her friends,” Kym said. “She's larger than life, that one! She's got such a big character so she'll be really, really fun on the show.”
