    About time but I’m really rooting for Nastia Liukin.

  2. wrstlgirl says:

    Hahahahaha, yeah, DUH!!! And he’s paired with Witney ?!?!?! Poor girl, I’ve seen Chris dance :-) Hopefully she can teach him a thing or two.

  3. Amie says:

    Here you go — the order of booting:
    ROBERT HERJAVEC (Shark Tank), with Kym Johnson. (Welcome back, Kym. You’re out first.)

    CHARLOTTE MCKINNEY (think: Carl’s Jr. commercials), with Keo Motsepe. (No one knows who she is (yeah, I know, like most of these people, but even so…)

    REDFOO (of LMFAO), with Emma Slater. (He won’t be able to dance but the LOLs will keep him a little while.)

    PATTI LABELLE, with Artem Chigvintsev. (People like her but her dancing won’t be good enough to keep her very long.)

    THE BACHELOR GUY. (Nobody likes him, do they? I don’t watch his show, but he seems like kind of a dick.)

    SUZANNE SOMERS, with Tony Dovolani. (Her age will wear her out, too.)

    MICHAEL SAM (formerly of the St. Louis Rams), with Peta Murgatroyd. (Football stars usually stay longer, but he’s no star.)

    WILLOW SHIELDS (The Hunger Games’ Primrose), with Mark Ballas. (If she can really dance, she may stay longer, but I think name recognition will get rid of her about here.)

    NOAH GALLOWAY (Iraq war vet/double amputee), with Sharna Burgess. (The back story may keep him longer than this, but I think he’ll be gone.)

    RUMER WILLIS, with Val Chmerkovskiy. (If she really CAN’T dance, she may be out sooner. It depends.)

    RIKER LYNCH (of the band R5), with Allison Holker. (He’s a Hough. That’s all he needs.)

    NASTIA LIUKIN (Olympic gold medalist gymnast), with Derek Hough

    Derek gets another ringer. Derek always wins. The end.

  4. Mary says:

    I guess he isn’t that good old boy from the sticks. Looks to me like he got a taste of the spotlight and don’t want to go back to Idaho anytime soon.

  5. Tami says:

    If you have to tell me who the star is in parentheses, they may not actually be a “star”!! Lol

  6. Sweetpea says:

    They lost me when they brought Derek back AND gave him another ringer. I love gymnastics and Nastia but I just refuse to support any partner of Derek’s since the show is so freaking obvious in playing favorites with him. And I don’t want to hear how it’s about the “star” either. Some of these dancers are bigger stars than than their partners now.

  7. chadcronin says:

    I think they kept the secret well. I had no idea until a family member told me. He said he was gonna be busy farming. I even missed this article. I didn’t know there was a secret last cast member. I am glad he’s on it as there’s not many people who I know or am a big fan of, so he’s a favorite from the start being from Iowa like me

  8. Would you people PLEASE send Patti LaBelle home. She may have been great in her time and I have nothing against her personally, but watching her dance is like watching grass grow. Points for standing in one spot while your partner dances around you??? Why do the judges constantly rave about her performance? They kept her and sent Mr. Football home. Where’s the justice. Please end the suffering NOW
