The Dancing With the Stars Season 19 cast was officially announced this morning, and we're already hearing some grumblings that this cast doesn't feature enough true "stars." But isn't that the case every season? And then once the season starts, most viewers find at least one person to really get behind, so we're not too worried.

In fact, despite the naysayers, we're guessing a lot of you have at least one or two stars you're really excited to see out there. From nostalgic favorites like Alfonso Ribeiro (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong) to Olympic champs (Lolo Jones) to hotties of all ages and genders, there's a lot to love about this cast.
