Dancing With The Stars, Derek Hough
Last season, few expected Derek Hough and Joanna Krupa to make it to the semifinals of Dancing with the Stars. It's a different story this time around, as Hough is paired with former Pussycat Dolls member Nicole Scherzinger. "I do think there's a little bit more pressure on me with everyone expecting Nicole to go far. That's OK," he tells TVGuide.com. "Last season was one of my favorite seasons because I had a great time. I had no expectations. I was just enjoying myself and that kind of came through. I'm going to try to retain that this season." See what else the Season 7 champ has to say about his new partner, why she's not a ringer and which cast member is a party animal.
Anna Trebunskaya, Dancing With The Stars

Is Dancing with the Stars' Mirrorball trophy more prestigious than an Olympic gold medal? "It's hard to say. Olympic gold has been my goal for my whole life," newly crowned Olympic champion Evan Lysacek tells TVGuide.com. "But the Mirrorball is very prestigious. I first came into this saying, 'I just want to have fun. I really want to learn to dance because I think it can help my skating.'

History is on the figure skater's side: Fellow Olympic gold medalists Shawn Johnson, Apolo Anton Ohno and Kristi Yamaguchi have all won Dancing. Lysacek thinks he has his work cut out for him. "I'm not graceful at all, so it's going to be hard, but I'm ready to put in the time," he says.

And that the few who do make some pretty insulting assumptions about his gray matter. "Everybody has this funk about models," says Reed, 22, who first attracted major attention at age 19 when he was on the cover of Abercrombie & Fitch's 2004 back-to-school catalog.
