Go, Tommy Chong, Go!

A new season of Dancing with the Stars is nearly upon us and today we learn which “stars” have been drafted for competition on the show. Honestly, for the show’s 19th season, they appear to be really reaching for stars to compete but as usual, producers have managed to pull together a fairly decent group of celebs to appear on the show. Among my faves of the stars competing this season are fashion designer Betsey Johnson, comic Tommy Chong and Mean Girls hottie Jonathan Bennett. I’m also totally happy that Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribiero will appear on the show because I *know* he’ll bust out the Carleton dance moves for the show.

Premiering September 24
Meet the Cast

We are just about a month away from the premiere of a new season of Survivor on CBS and today we get to meet the cast of 18 people who will compete on the new season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. As you may know, Survivor did a Blood vs. Water season before (pitting teams of loved ones against one another in the game) and because that season was so successful, they’re doing it again. As I understand it, there were supposed to be two same-sex couples in the mix this time but a pair of women had to pull out of the show due to a medical emergency (the pair of same-sex men are in the game). Click the embed above to meet the 9 teams of players this season and get ready, Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water will premiere on CBS on September 24.
