'Dancing' Cast Includes Hasselhoff, Bristol Palin and The Situation

Season eleven of 'Dancing with the Stars' will include the mother of 'The Brady Bunch', a former NFL quarterback, 'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino and the daughter of Sarah Palin.

Host of the ballroom dancing competition, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke (photosBrooke Burke photos), made the announcement on Monday night during an episode of the 'Bachelor Pad'.

"We're all about keeping it low-key," joked Bergeron.

The females competing include singer-actress Brandy, 'Dirty Dancing's Jennifer Grey, Bristol Palin, 'The Hills' star Audrina Patridge (photosAudrina Patridge photos), 'Brady Bunch' mom Florence Henderson, and comedian-actress Margaret Cho.

Henderson is now 76 and Grey, who was only 27 when she starred in the classic film, is now 50. During the live announcement, she said she hoped viewers didn't have unfair expectations of her because of her role in the film.

So how does Sarah Palin feel about her daughter's dancing gig? "She's excited for me," said Bristol. "She knows that this is going to be hard work, but she's excited." As for whether the former Alaskan governor will make an appearance on the show, Bristol said "hopefully."

The men include singer Michael Bolton, David Hasselhoff, The Situation, recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, former NBA star Rick Fox, and 'That's So Raven's Kyle Massey.

"I'm happy to be here," said Hasselhoff. "My two daughters love this show, and they convinced me but I think this will be harder than the Comedy Central roast."

The show's new season will kick off on Monday, September 20th on ABC.
