ABC announced the cast for Dancing with the Stars on Monday night and wow, it’s a mixed bag.

The cast of 11 dancers includes Pamela Anderson, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, sportscaster Erin Andrews, Shannen Doherty, Olympic gold-winning skater Evan Lysacek, Niecy Nash, NFLer Chad Ochocinco, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, and soap star Aiden Turner.

It also features reality harpy Kate Gosselin and former Bachelor Jake Pavelka, which raises the question of when he actually works as a pilot.
