Can you believe it was 10 years ago this July that Dancing With the Stars first premiered? It looked a lot different back then, but over the years the reality competition proved to be a ratings juggernaut and is still a moderate hit.
The 20th season is being billed as the biggest yet, with themed nights and the addition of all-access cameras during rehearsals. But enough about the technical stuff. Who’s going to be dancing on Season 20 and who will win? Here’s our definitive ranking of how we think this new batch of twinkle toes will do, from who will get voted off first and who will take home the new and improved gold Mirrorball Trophy.
The definitive ranking of the ‘DWTS’ anniversary cast
RedFoo with Emma SlaterSure he's "sexy and he knows it" but we're not sure RedFoo's gyrating is going to go over well with the judges or the audience. Unless of course he sports that teeny weeny polka dot bikini?ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Charlotte McKinney with Keo MotsepeThe model (famous for her Carl's Jr. and Guess ads) is paired with Keo and while we think he'll go farther than his inaugural season (he and Lolo Jones were eliminated first), models typically don't go far on DWTS.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Robert Herjavec with Kym JohnsonThe Shark Tank star and Dragons' Den alum might be good with money but we're betting he doesn't have the moves to keep him in the competition for long.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Riker Lynch with Allison HolkerHis brother and fellow R5 member Ross is known for his smooth moves but perhaps their cousins, Derek and Julianne Hough, managed to teach Riker a thing or two that will keep him alive in the competition.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Patti LaBelle with Artem ChigvintsevLaBelle is one sassy woman and couldn't have asked for a better partner. Still, she's got an uphill battle with all the youngsters and athletes in the competition. We can only hope she gets to dance to "Lady Marmalade."ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Willow Shields with Mark BallasAt 14, the Hunger Games actress is the youngest to ever dance in the DWTS ballroom but she couldn't have asked for a better partner than the two-time champ, who proved last season he can deal with teenagers when he and Duck Dynasty daughter Sadie Robertson were runner-up to Alfonso and Witney.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Suzanne Somers with Tony DovolaniThe actress, author and Thighmaster queen will show us she's still got the right moves, squeezing her way to middle-of-the-pack.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Mystery Man and Witney CarsonLast year's winning pro's partner has yet to be announced but with Tom Bergeron's "rose" clue, we can only assume it's current Bachelor Chris Soules. However, Bachelors and Bachelorettes haven't faired well in the past. And if it's not Chris, then we can't wait to see Axl or Pete on the dance floor.ABC Media
Noah Galloway with Sharna BurgessThe disabled combat veteran Noah Galloway is a fighter and we're sure he'll inspire and win over the hearts of all the viewers. Here's betting no one accuses him of having two left feet. ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Michael Sam with Peta MurgatroydThe first openly gay player drafted in the NFL has the advantage: football players have almost always fared well on DWTS. He's got some big shoes to fill, but we're sure he's going to kill it.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Rumer Willis with Valentin ChmerkovskiyVal already predicted that he and Rumer will be the winners. We're just hoping that her parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, show their support and up the star factor in the ballroom.ABC/Todd Wawrychuk
Nastia Liukin with Derek HoughWe had Val and Rumer pegged to win — until we learned Derek was back. The five-time champ surprised everyone when he announced he would pull double duty with DWTS and his Radio City Music Hall show. And Olympic gold medalists usually take it all the way so, sorry, Val.ABC Media
