Kate Gosselin

Partner: Tony Dovolani

In spite of her two left feet, reality show mom Kate Gosselin, 34, thinks she has one big advantage over her competitors: energy. Chasing around a set of twins and sextuplets has given her quite the dancer stamina. "I am going to win," Gosselin told Jimmy Kimmel earlier this month. And her "miracle worker" partner Tony Dovolani is just as optimistic about taking home the disco ball trophy. "He is a very positive person. Even when I mess up a lot he still finds something positive to say." For the past three weeks, Gosselin has been practicing in her Pennsylvania home basement and at a local dance studio, with plans to commute between the kids at home and Los Angeles. Juggling mommyhood and the mambo will be fun, says Gosselin: "I just have to work harder."
