|Brawlers, Brothers and Babes: The Cast of 'DWTS' 13|
We predict who will distinguish themselves and how
By Kate Mulcrone
It's almost time for lucky Season 13 of "Dancing With the Stars" to begin. This season's cast includes the usual mix of actors, singers, pro athletes and, yes, a has-been or two. Just think of it as a potluck where everyone brings something to the table, as you read our predictions of who will distinguish themselves and how:
Most Likely to Win ... in Vegas: Elisabetta Canalis
Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis is Vegas oddsmaker Bodog's pick to win the Mirror Ball Trophy. Stateside, the 32-year old actress might be better known as George Clooney's ex than for her stint on "Leverage." Elisabetta also worked as a velina, a kind of background dancer, on an Italian TV show -- think J.Lo in the '90s. She's partnered up with Valentin "Maks' Brother" Chmerkovskiy, which should only add to her mystique. And, yes, Maks will also be dancing this season!
"Dancing With the Stars" premieres Monday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
