As fun as it is to find out which celebrities will be performing on Dancing With the Stars each season, its equally as entertaining to find out which expert dancer they will be paired with. Then, we can all start speculating on who will hook up and who will hate each other!
So, here are the pairings for Dancing with the Stars:
David Arquette will partner with two-time winner Kym Johnson. Could ignite some sparkage, but not it David has any chance of getting back together with his wife!
Elisabetta Canalis will be paired up with Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Maksim has a brother? Really?! Is he equally as HAWT???
Ron Artest will be strutting his stuff with one of the newbie pros, Peta Murgatroyd.
Chaz Bono has the pleasure of dancing Lacey Schwimmer back the show after a brief hiatus from the floor.
Ricki Lake will be partnered with Derek Hough, who makes his return to the show this year as well, while Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas will probably be the resident hook-up as the two, young, single swingers.
The best of the rest …
The littlest Kardashian bro Rob will dance with two-time winner Cheryl Burke, J.R. Martinez will pair off with Karina Smirnoff, Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will partner, while Chynna Phillips tangos with Tony Dovolani. Finally, Nancy Grace will attempt to avoid the toes of newbie pro Tristan McManus and Carson Kressley will dance with Anna Trebunskaya, who returns for her eighth year.
And the reason Carson couldn't dance with a dude is because….?
Baby steps, we guess. They're already making pretty significant strides this season. We'll give them credit for that.
Thoughts on the pairings?
