Season 12 Dancing with the Stars - What Stars?

So I started watching Dancing with the Stars a few years ago when local girl Shawn Johnson was on the show. After watching a few shows, my wife and I were hooked. The show had a winning formula of well known stars, great dancing, skimpy outfits and good music. What made that first season of watching even better was local Iowan Shawn Johnson brought home the title!

So fast forward a couple of seasons later and they announce the stars for the 12th season..... and THUD. That was the sound of the ratings for the show on ABC hitting the bottom floor. Who are these people? The ones I have heard of are barely stars?? Here's a complete list along with their dance partners:

- Rapper Lil' Romeo and Chelsie Hightower
- Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya
- Original Karate Kid Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff
- Wrestler Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke
- Football player Hines Ward and Kym Johnson
- "Loveline" host Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer

- Disney actress Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas
- Model Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin
- Reality star Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel
- Talk show host Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani
- Actress Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Really, is this the best they could get together? The Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio? Sorry, Dancing with the stars, this season I think I will pass.
