Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas teased fans by announcing their matchup early on Tuesday. Here are the rest of the pairs: “Hills” star Audrina Patridge will dance with Tony Dovolani , something Ryan Seacrest alluded to in an interview on Tuesday. And “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will get his groove on with Karina Smirnoff.
Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower have been paired. Brandy will prove the boy is hers when she hits the floor with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel will try to dance their way to the top. Other pairs include Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke, “Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough, David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson, Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer and, finally, Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya.
While everyone else is busy rehearsing for the September 20 premiere of the show, the Situation will have some catching up to do when he finally wraps up “Jersey Shore” and heads to rehearsals with Smirnoff. “I’m going to lose a couple days’ practice,” he said. “But I don’t mind being the underdog. I promise to try my hardest and practice as much as I can and be the best that I can be. I hope the Situation Nation shows up to support me. … I have a ticket or two reserved for Pauly D and Snooki.”
