Tom Bergeron to Announce Cast Members Throughout the Two-Hour Finale

ABC.com Will Post the Names As They’re Revealed On-Air

In a special Monday night event, the cast of “Dancing with the Stars” season 10  will be announced by “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron in interstitials airing throughout the highly anticipated dramatic two-hour finale of the popular romance reality series, “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” on MONDAY, MARCH 1 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Immediately following each cast member’s unveiling during primetime, ABC.com will post the updated list online.

The Spring 2010 season of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres MONDAY, MARCH 22, 2010 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). In week two, all of the couples will return to dance once again, MONDAY, MARCH 29 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). The team with the lowest combined judges’ scores and public votes for both performances will be eliminated from the competition on the first results show, TUESDAY, MARCH 30 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). “Macy’s Stars of Dance,” which features some of the most renowned dancers and choreographers of our time, will also be back on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show.”

Viewers may cast their votes via phone and online at www.abc.com. AT&T subscribers may also text message their votes by texting the word “VOTE” and entering the number that corresponds to the team they want to support (message and data rates may apply).


Don’t forget: Samantha Harris is leaving her gig as DWTS co-host/awkward chick backstage. So Tom Bergeron who has local connections to my town of Portsmouth, N.H. — may be flying solo for a while. He can handle it.

Remember when they announced Jake Pavelka as the new “Bachelor” during the last season of DWTS? Do you think maybe one of the dancers this new season will be a “Bachelor” alum? Maybe Tenley Molzahn or Vienna Girardi? Or just Paula Abdul, since she’s free?
