'Dancing with the Stars' Cast Includes Pamela Anderson, Erin Andrews & Kate Gosselin

ABC has announced the new cast for the upcoming season of 'Dancing with the Stars' and it features plenty of recognizable names.

Host Tom Bergeron and former finalist Melissa Rycroft revealed the cast throughout 'The Bachelor' finale on Monday night.

So who is on the list? Let's start with the women: 'Jon and Kate's Kate Gosselin, former 'Baywatch' babe Pamela Anderson, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews (photosErin Andrews photos), Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger (photosNicole Scherzinger photos), 'Charmed' actress Shannen Doherty, and actress-comedian Niecy Nash

The men will see Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, , the NFL's Chad Ochocinco, soap star Aiden Turner, and none other than this past season's 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka.

"It's fitting that in our landmark tenth season we've got many of the stars we've been chasing since season one to agree to take part," says Dancing executive producer Conrad Green. "This has the potential to be the most memorable cast we've ever had."

"Kate Gosselin is a woman people are going to have opinions about, based on the tabloid fury surrounding her," explains Green.

"She hasn't started practicing yet, but I would imagine that this will feel like a diversion, a bit of fun, after the strange life she's led over the last couple of years."

As for Jake, "God knows what’s going through his mind, the way 'The Bachelor' has taken off this season."

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who is now 80, will be the show's oldest man ever to compete on 'Dancing'.

'Dancing with the Stars' returns on March 22. Producers are still deciding on who will replace former co-host Samantha Harris.

"We've been talking to a lot of people, and we've done some tests," explains Green. "We want to make sure it’s someone who brings a fresh feeling to the show."
