Dancing With the Stars: We Ranked the 20 Casts, From Worst to Best!

As Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron has taken great pride in reminding us, the reality competition is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary. (Anyone opposed to making a drinking game out of Bergeron’s memos? It would make Monday nights so much more fun.)

To mark the ABC series’ major milestone, we’re looking back at the 20 seasons under its sequined belt so far — and, more specifically, the celebrities/”celebrities” that have salsa’d into our living rooms for the last 10 years.

Which casts were the most stacked with talent? Which featured the highest number of A-list (or, let’s face it, B-list) stars? Which Dancing rosters had us Googling the stars’ names just to find out what makes them (allegedly) famous?

The photo gallery below (which you can also view here) contains our ranking of Dancing With the Stars‘ 20 casts to date, listed from worst to best — taking into account the amount of star power and actual dancing prowess the celebs had that year. Click through the gallery to see our picks, then tell us: Which Dancing seasons have been the most memorable for you?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I’m just shocked looking at Kim’s face in the gallery…What has she done to herself? Ugh. Fun to look at old pictures of the dancing cast. Mark Ballas had interesting looks over the years. Season 8 with Shawn Johnson and Melissa Rycroft was my favorite.

    I agree with #1 and #2 but so many of your lowest picks are the best seasons of DWTS.

    2 of Julianne H’s dresses are disgusting, too revealing, especially this week, the black top showing only the bra is gross for her. Very disappointing from who she was before that I don’t even want to look at her. Of all the dresses I saw in this show, her dress is the worst looking

      Why is Julianne Hough a judge this season when she has a brother and cousin in competition? It is certainly biased and unethical for her to remain in this competition.

    The most famous cast was definitely season 10. They’ve got Pamela Anderson, Nicole Scherzinger, Shannen Doherty, Evan Lyseck, Buzz Aldrin, Niecy Nash and one of the worst contestants ever Kate Plus 8. This was the season I actually thought ‘woah! they actually got some NAMES!’ but sadly with the newest season it’s clear they can’t even get former A-isters…

    I think the stars that are still there need to be sure of the dance. They all seem nervous. Relax people !! Your dancing !! Work it !

    I think the right girl went home, she act like she didnt care, and the other that went home that was good too.and I think if Patty is going to be there she should dance not the stuff she trying to do.other wise its a fun show!!
