Dancing With the Stars Cast Announced for Season 18

Dancing-With-Stars-title-screenUSA Today just released an unofficial list of the Season 18 contestants for Dancing With the Stars.  The official announcement is slated for 9:30amET on Good Morning America.  The contestants include a diverse mix of actors and athletes, and the obvious frontrunners are Olympic Ice Dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White.  It is interesting that Davis and White will be competing against each other as they have been partners since childhood.  Actress Danica McKellar and Cody Simpson should put in strong showings too.  The full list is below, who do you think of this Dancing With the Stars cast?  I can’t wait for your comments below, and throughout this season of DWTS. I will post a weekly post-show recap every Tuesday and look forward to your thoughts and comments.
