The Dancing With the Stars pros are like family. We love them, we tease them, we miss them during the off-season, and we want them to be happy. As we welcome three (hot!) new professional dancers to to DWTS Season 13, we mourn the loss of three pros we won’t be able to cheer on every week this season.

It’s pretty safe to say Footloose actress/Ryan Seacrest paramour Julianne Hough is just not coming back to DWTS in a competitive role, and who knows what’s up with stunning married pros Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo. But fan favorites like Louis Van Amstel and Chelsie Hightower have become ballroom regulars and we were surprised to see them left out this season — not to mention how sad it is to lose cutie Dmitry Chaplin after getting him back last season. True, many past pros will return for Results Shows, but it’s not the same.
