A
four-time Pro Bowler, three-time Super Bowl participant, two-time Super
Bowl Champion and Super Bowl XL MVP, Hines Ward holds virtually every
record in Steelers wide receiving history and will go down in the record
books as the Steelers’ all-time leading wide receiver. He was given the
honor of being named to the Steelers’ 75th Season All-Time Team, and
this fall will be entering his 14th season with the Pittsburgh Steelers
as the longest tenured wide receiver with the same team in the NFL.
Considered by many the best blocking wide receiver to ever play the
game, he is fresh off an outstanding performance in a close loss to the
Green Bay Packers in this year’s Super Bowl a few weeks ago. Hines is a
fierce competitor with a big smile and a big heart; Beyond his NFL
career, he is a symbol of success and good will to the Korean community
and all of Asia. His Helping Hands Foundation is devoted to the fight
against bi-racial discrimination in the United States and Korea. The

KENDRA WILKINSON

Television
personality and glamour girl Kendra Wilkinson is best known from her
self-titled E! hit reality series, “Kendra.” Just wrapping its third

through their crazy lives. Portraying life in the spotlight and the
challenges of raising a toddler son and being an NFL wife, the show is a
fun-filled, action-packed look into the real world of Kendra Wilkinson.
She got her start on one of E! Entertainment’s highest rated television
shows, “The Girls Next Door,” co-starring on the reality hit for five
seasons, until 2009, when she closed that chapter in her life and opened
a new one. That year Kendra got married, welcomed the birth of her son
and, of course, debuted her show, “Kendra.” At 25, she is a
self-described tomboy and avid sports fan who loves watching boxing and
rooting for her favorite football team, the San Diego Chargers. Since
the debut of “The Girls Next Door,” Kendra has appeared on the cover of
numerous magazines and has enjoyed television and movie appearances. In
2007 she was part of the cast of MTV’s reality series “Celebrity Rap
Superstar,” where she proved to be an audience favorite, finishing in
2nd place in the competition. In August 2008, Kendra was featured in the
movie “The House Bunny,” along with “The Girls Next Door” co-stars
Holly Madison, Bridget Marquette and Hugh Hefner, and in January 2009
she was featured on the CBS hit series “How I Met Your Mother.”

Awesome. Thank you Happy.

I REALLY REALLY wonder how they chose the cast. You know there are so many reality peeps and even famous peeps that would love to be on this show and they pick the strangest, most obscure, people.

WOW!! All of their bios are very impressive! I would think it would be very hard to commit to 3 months of DWTS. It does seem like a lot of celebrities want to be on the show and dance, but I think when it really comes down to it it is a HUGE commitment on their part and they pass on it. Thanks for the pics, Happy.
I think Romeo and Chelsie are going to be the ones to beat this season.
