The New Dancing with the Stars Cast

The sixth season cast of Dancing with the Stars has been announced!

Here's the list of the new contestants, along with a brief description to help clue you in on who these celebrities are.

Most people know Adam from Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinsky, which started as a radio show and then made its way to TV. He also hosts a nationally syndicated morning radio program, "The Adam Carolla Show." Have a feeling he'll be the jokester on the show and not take it too seriously.

Who? According to his ABC bio, Cristian is an actor whose television work has mainly appeared on Telemundo. He's also done guest spots on Ugly Betty and Psych. Oh and he made it into People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful" list.

Shannon gained recognition as the sexy student in American Pie. She's also been in Scary Movie and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. A perhaps unknown fact about Shannon? She's a skilled poker player, taking third out of sixty-four in the 2007 National Heads-Up Poker Championship.

Steve Guttenberg has starred in over a dozen films, including Police Academy and Three Men and a Baby.

Mario is only twenty-one, and he's already a multi-platinum R&B/pop singer. Mario's also acted in the films Step Up and Freedom Writers.

Marlee is an Academy Award Winning actress who is almost completely death. She's appeared on the big screen and small screen, and is well known for appearances on The West Wing, The L-Word, Nip/Tuck and Desperate Housewives.

Penn is one half of the illusionist team Penn & Teller. The duo has received 11 Emmy nominations for their TV show, Penn & Teller: Bulls**t. Maybe can use his illusionist skills to help him win?

Priscilla was married to Elvis Presley. I wonder if he taught her any moves.

Monica's a tennis champion who has won nine grand slam titles and for a long time was the number one player in the world. She turned pro at age 14 and won her first grand slime title two years later. We know Monica is in it to win it.

Having played for the Miami Dolphins for over a decade, Jason was named this year's NFL Man of the Year and last year's NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Jason's also a proud dad of two sons and one daughter.

Marissa is best known for creating the role of Tracy Turnblad in Broadway's Hairspray, for which she won a Tony. Marissa is always making her way into movies and television.

Kristi, an Olympic Gold medalist and World Champion, is one of the most popular figure skaters. After retiring in 1992, she went on to perform in television specials and the "Stars on Ice" tour. Kristi should definitely be able to use her skating moves and experience in her dancing.

So, that's the list. What do you think? Any early bets on who will win?
