  • Nancy Grace, Chaz Bono cast in Dancing with the Stars Season 13

    Nancy Grace and Chaz Bono will join the cast for Season 13 of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. The entire cast was revealed by America's Funniest Home Videos host Tom Bergeron and Dancing with the Stars Season 7 champion Brooke Burke, who co-hosted Monday night's announcement at the end of an episode of the reality TV show "Bachelor Pad." DWTS pairs celebrities with professional dancers (and choreographers) who perform in front of a panel of the three judges, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba. Viewers can vote for their favorite dancing couples. Last season's winner was Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and professional dancer Kym Johnson. Six of the past 12 DWTS winners have been athletes. The DWTS head of casting says, “There are some strong personalities [in Season 13]," USA today reports, "Any time it gets people talking, obviously that's a good thing. It gets people watching. This first show is definitely going to be water-cooler talk." The show opens on Sept. 19. Who are the DWTS Season 13 contestants?
