The idea of comedian Andy Dick shocking anyone on Dancing With the Stars 2013 isn't too shocking. His list of controversies goes on and on — from exposing himself to allegedly groping people. But hopefully that's all in the distant past, and the only shocks of Dancing With the Stars Season 16 will be positive ones.

“I’m sober… you can tell when I’m not,” Andy told Access Hollywood. “I am ready for something like this, because I don’t know what the hell I’m doing and I’m attacking it like used to when I first got to town. ... I am a butterfly coming out of the cocoon." As his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, told Access, “I think he’s going to shock you, he actually has a little bit of dance talent in there."

We hope he has a PG personality in there, too. DWTS is often good for “second chances” and career reboots, so we’ll see if that’s the case with Andy. Either way, good luck to him — and especially to Sharna on her debut season!
