On Monday night (August 30), the new cast of "Dancing With the Stars" was revealed, and like previous seasons, it's an incredible cross-section of actors, musicians, athletes and whatever category Bristol Palin falls into. The headliners include two championship ring-owning athletes (Kurt Warner and Rick Fox), everyone's favorite television mom (Florence Henderson), a platinum R&B star (Brandy), an actress who once played a dancer (Jennifer Grey) and David Hasselhoff.
The lineup also includes a pair of MTV stars: "Jersey Shore" philosopher Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and "The Hills" vixen Audrina Patridge. If "Dancing With the Stars" really wanted to go all-in with the MTV crowd, they should have made the cast an all-MTV affair, featuring the following network all-stars.
Mike "The Miz" Mizanin
The veteran of "The Real World: Back to New York" and seemingly dozens of seasons of "The Challenge," the Miz is both an athlete and a TV star, which makes him an immediate favorite for television's premiere dance competition. He would have to take some time off from his day job as the United States Champion in the WWE, but he's just versatile enough to pull it off.
Warren the Ape
The foul-mouthed star of the show of the same name has enough bon mots to hang with the judges and is certainly light on his feet (or perhaps just light). The only con? He's, you know, a puppet.
Does he have any dance experience? Probably not. But he does have a savvy eye for television and a commitment to competition, which would make him a formidable opponent for the rest of the field.
Farrah from "Teen Mom"
Before she became a teenage mother, Farrah was a cheerleader, which means she already has some appropriate athletic training. Compound that with her big personality and you've got a winner.
As a veteran of "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" (which just wrapped up its first season last week), Iacono would make for a great underdog story. He looks unassuming, but could probably take to dancing quickly and make a run in the late rounds.
The former star of the animated series of the same name (which ran on MTV throughout the '90s, first on "Liquid Television" and then as a stand-alone show) has incredible agility and flexibility, which would make her a force on the dance floor. She's so powerful that she may even be able to overcome the fact that she is only a two-dimensional drawing.
Christopher "Big Black" Boykin
The breakout star of "Rob & Big" looks too heavy to be graceful, but don't let his frame fool you. As he proved time and again on the show, Big Black can move with his own special version of grace.
The enraging star of MTV's "8th & Ocean" was famous for not showing up to modeling gigs or answerin the phone when his agency called, which means he probably wouldn't both competing even if he was asked. But let's face it: We miss him.
Because we miss "My Life as Liz" too.
