The "Dancing with the Stars" all-star cast has been announced -- and yes, Bristol Palin is coming back for another spin. "The press is going to talk about me no matter what, so I might as well have fun," Palin said, according to USA Today.
The candidate's daughter turned reality star -- who came in third place back in Season 11 -- will join Kirstie Alley, Pamela Anderson, Melissa Rycroft, Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson, Joey Fatone, Gilles Marini, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno and Helio Castroneves to make up the all-star cast. The 13th dancer -- Kyle Massey, Carson Kressley or Sabrina Bryan -- will be chosen by viewers via ABC.com.
According to producer Conrad Green, the stars "represent many different seasons" and allow the show to "get back some of the best personalities" from its run, USA Today reports.
The season premiere kicks off Sept. 24 on ABC, but in the meantime, let us know: Who are you rooting for on "Dancing with the Stars"?
