Gosselin, Doherty, Lysacek to Dance With the Stars

As rumored earlier today, former Baywatch bombshell Pamela Anderson, former Beverly Hills 90210 bombshell Shannen Doherty, and, uh, Kate Gosselin will take part in this season’s Dancing With the Stars, ABC announced tonight. The cast will also feature Olympic figure skating gold medalist Evan Lysacek, who would seem to be at an unfair advantage in a group that includes 80-year-old former astronaut Buzz Aldrin. One “surprise”: Synergistic as ever, ABC has given a spot in the cast to this season’s Bachelor, airplane pilot Jake Pavelka, who [SPOILER ALERT] proposed to 23-year-old Vienna Girardi on tonight’s finale.

The full group:

Pamela Anderson, “the world’s sexiest woman”

Chad Ochocinco, “football’s most outrageous”

Aiden Turner, “the soap stud”

Erin Andrews, “ESPN’s broadcasting beauty”

Shannen Doherty, “The Beverly Hills bad girl”

Buzz Aldrin, “the original moonwalker”

Niecy Nash, “Reno 911’s funniest”

Nicole Scherzinger, “the Pussycat Doll”

Evan Lysacek, “the Olympic golden boy”

Kate Gosselin, “reality’s most-watched super-mom”

Jake Pavelka, this season’s Bachelor
