The Big, Lumbering Athlete His acting career never took off (we're looking at you, Kazaam), but Shaquille O'Neal is a born entertainer. It's time that The Diesel/Shaq Fu/Superman earn a new nickname: "Twinkle Toes."

The Female Athlete With the intense concentration and coordination that is required to pilot a steel missile at hundreds of miles per hour, who better to than IndyCar Series racer Danica Patrick to show us what "grace under pressure" really looks like

The Female Hottie Charisma Carpenter slays us with her beauty, but the former Buffy star is more than just a vamp. She's an avid fitness enthusiast, and counts among her skills rollerblading, horseback-riding and rock-climbing. So c'mon, DWTS, go Greek!

The Soap Star The Bold and the Beautiful's Heather Tom knows that a little melodrama goes a long way. We just know that her "tango face" would kill, and her background as a former dancer with the Seattle Pacific Ballet will certainly come in handy.

The Recording Artist To the extreme, Robert Van Winkle (the artist formerly known as Vanilla Ice) rocks the mic like a vandal. But aren't you curious to see how his white-boy smooth might translate to the parquet

The Older Gentleman Dancing fans would be happy to be stuck with Huey Lewis. Forget his '80s hits, watch the movie Duets, and tell us that that his performance as a charming deadbeat dad doesn't prove that the judges would eat up his Everyman appeal.

The Talking Head Access Hollywood's bubbly Maria Menounos has proven she's game for anything. If nothing else, the Pantene girl has impossibly shiny locks that look fab on camera. But does her resemblance to DWTS host Samantha Harris hurt her chances
