The New Dancing With the Stars Cast is the Show’s Fittest Yet

The newest cast of celebrities to join Dancing With the Stars was announced this week. They seem like a pretty likable bunch, not to mention fit and healthy.

Actors, pro athletes, and singers make up this all-star cast who will start burning up ABC’s dance floor Monday, March 19. The line-up includes Melissa Gilbert, Sherri Shepherd, Martina Navratilova, Maria Menounos, Gladys Knight, Jaleel White, Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Gavin Degraw and Jack Wagner.

In seasons past, there were always one or two footloose contestants who benefited from the extreme calorie burn that came with training and performing their weekly dance competition. Kirstie Alley, Marie Osmond, and even Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka have credited the show with helping them lose weight. Looking at this cast, this season may be more about maintenance than weight loss.

Rob Kardashian Joined Dancing With the Stars to Gain Body Confidence

Now that the cast list has been revealed for season 13 of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, weight loss talk is in full swing.

Each season there is speculation of who might lose significant weight while on the show, and this time around, Rob Kardashian is putting his own hat in the ring. He wants to use his time on the show to get into great shape. When talking about his decision to sign on with the hit TV show, he said, “You probably wouldn’t know it, but I’m the most insecure and overweight I’ve ever been. I’m over 200 pounds, so I want to drop some weight and this will be a great start.”

Dancing isn’t his strong suit though, so he will be working extra hard. He was honest about his abilities and stated, “I’m not a confident dancer at all. And down the road…I don’t want to be that guy who doesn’t dance at his own wedding!”

Ricki Lake Finds Weight Loss Motivation by Signing on for Dancing With the Stars

Ricki Lake is a celebrity known as much for her up and down weight battles as her talk show and acting talents. Ricki has been revealed as a contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars and she appears to be keeping her weight in check from recent photos. Ricki says that she agreed to do the show after being inspired by Kirstie Alley during the previous season – rightfully so since Kirstie managed to shed 38 inches from her body over a 12 week period.

Although Ricki looks great, she says that she hasn’t been maintaining her weight. She fell in love last year and she admits that she’s “gone on a love binge” and hasn’t been hitting the gym like she usually does. Ricki may have been missing her gym time, but now that she’s on Dancing With The Stars, she won’t have any trouble getting in a very rigorous workout everyday to the tune of about six hours. Contestants on Dancing With The Stars train hard and for several hours each day to master their routines.

Dancing with the Stars Contestants Lose Weight, Gain New Life Perspective

Each season, we watch contestants on Dancing with the Stars undergo major transformations and this season was no different. Kendra Wilkinson may not have won the competition but she did win back her pre-baby body and a whole new perspective on life.

Before DWTS, Wilkinson was somewhere between a size two and four. By no stretch of the term was she overweight, but she hadn’t quite reclaimed her Playboy physique. Wilkinson is happy to report that after competing on DWTS, she’s back to a size zero. Most well-known as the sporty ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner from Girls Next Door, Wilkinson has always been very active. In 2009, when she had her son with husband Hank Baskett , she gained a whopping 60 pounds (don’t worry Kendra, you’re not the only one in that boat!)

As many of us know, losing 60 pounds isn’t easily done. Wilkinson credits her freshly-sculpted body to a combination of Ab Cuts, dancing and a diet of natural foods, rich in fruits and vegetables.
