"This is a dream come true! I've wanted to do the show since Season 1 when Kelly Monaco's boob popped out of her dress. I was like, 'Wow, that could be me!"' Shepherd, 44, joked to Us Weekly after the cast reveal on Good Morning America in Hollywood February 28. "And then when I first saw Val [Chmerkovskiy] dance, and I've seen him on YouTube -- I wanted him as a partner! I prayed for this one! So God is real!"
Menounos, 33, is hoping pro partner Derek Hough will help her win the Mirror Ball trophy. "I've never taken a dance class in my life," the TV host told Us. "I'm not a dancer -- I'm a tomboy! To be sexy and graceful is going to be so out of character for me."
Other competing celebs include singer Gavin DeGraw, Melissa Gilbert, Donald Driver, Katherine Jenkins, Jack Wagner, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Martina Navratilova and Roshon Fegan.
Family Matters star Jaleel White, 35, won't be relying on his famous Steve Urkel swagger. "I'm actually here to win, so we're going to leave that dance on YouTube where it belongs!" he laughed. "The cast is so likable -- I'm already rooting for other people! We're all going to push each other, I can tell."
