Because Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars can't just be like any other DWTS season, of course things have to be special. The first hint of that was the fan vote to pick the 13th contestant for the All-Star season. Who did viewers pick -- Sabrina Bryan, Kyle Massey or Carson Kressley?
ABC announced today that Sabrina Bryan would be the 13th celebrity competitor on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
. She beat out season 11's Kyle Massey and season 13's Carson Kressley for the wild-card position.
Paired with professional partner Louis Van Amstel, Sabrina will try to best her previous performance on the show. Back in season 5, Sabrina Bryan -- then paired with Mark Ballas (who will dance with his season 11 partner, Bristol Palin, instead) -- wowed the judges but fell to early elimination in week 6 of the competition.
Sabrina Bryan is best known as a member of The Cheetah Girls, a girl group created and popularized by Disney in three Cheetah Girls
TV movies. She has since acted in guest roles on such shows as The Bold and The Beautiful
, The Geena Davis Show
and Grounded for Life
. On Dancing with the Stars
, Sabrina Bryan co-hosted backstage interviews during seasons 10 through 12.
Despite some of the best performances in Dancing with the Stars
history (her perfectly scoring week 4 paso doble was voted the 9th best DWTS
dance in the show's 100th episode), Sabrina didn't do so well on her first attempt at the Mirror Ball. Will the All-Star season change Sabrina Bryan's luck?Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8pm on ABC.
