For the last few weeks, announcements have been made regarding some of the “stars” to be featured on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. As is the tradition, the entire cast was announced this morning on Good Morning America. Each year, DWTS seems to find one or two controversial celebrities. For this season, that distinction goes to celebrity cook, Paula Dean who nearly lost her empire due to racist comments she made a few years ago and wild card Gary Busey who makes headlines for just being himself. The two are also this season's oldest contestants – Dean is 68 and Busey is 71. (Chaka Khan is only 62!) Season 21 will also usher in more younger dancers including actress and daughter of Steve Irwin the former Crocodile Hunter, Bindi Irwin (17), internet star Hayes Grier (15)
 
This season's cast includes former child stars and married couple Carlos Penavega (Big Time Rush) and Alexa Penavega (Nashville, Spy Kids) who will be competing against each other. The show tried to do this before for season eight with singer Jewel and her husband Ty Murray, but Jewel had to bow out at the last minute.
