Dancing With The Stars: Who Will Be Partnered With Cheryl Burke & Chelsie Hightower?

August 29, 2010 11:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


As a new season of  ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars kicks off, the dance pros are just as excited about the audience to find out which celebrities will be hitting the ballroom. Ballroom beauties Cheryl Burke and Chelsie Hightower are looking forward to the new crop of stars who will be vying for the mirrorball trophy in season 11. Keep reading for more details on their partners for this season…

Dance pro Cheryl Burke has taken home two mirrorball trophies in the past ten seasons of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars and she’s ready for a third. The ballroom expert won the competition in season 2 with partner, Drew Lachey from 98 Degrees, and in season 3 with football pro, Emmitt Smith. She’s hoping for a third victory this year. “It’s time for another one,” she says.

So who will Cheryl Burke be partnered with in season 11? She wishes she knew. “They never tell you who your partner is,” she tells People magazine, “but I’m dying to know!” According to an insider, “The pros can make suggestions for the kind of partner they would like, but they don’t get to pick. It’s a surprise for them.”

Burke’s fellow competitor, Chelsie Hightower (who was partnered with Jake Pavelka in season 10) has some very high hopes for the new season.  “Justin Timberlake would be awesome, but that might be reaching too high,” she says in the new issue of Fitness magazine. “I’d love to team up with a World Cup soccer player. I watched the games this summer and those guys are dope. They already have the drive, work ethic and some footwork, so it would be fun to dance with one of them.”

Tune into the Dancing With the Stars press conference tomorrow night during an all-new episode of  The Bachelor Pad to find out what celebrities will be competing in season 11.
