Dancing with the Stars's All-Star Couples Suit Up for Battle
PAMELA & TRISTAN
Move over, boys! After being eliminated in season 10, Pamela Anderson – who's partnered with Irish-born dancer Tristan MacManus – has a new strategy for winning the mirror-ball trophy in the upcoming all-star edition, premiering Sept. 24. "I've sworn off men until November," Anderson tells PEOPLE about her season-long celibacy.
GILLES & PETA
BRISTOL & MARK
With a new fitness regimen, Bristol Palin – who teams up with her previous partner, Mark Ballas – vows to get in shape for her second stint on the show. "My goal [is] not to gain any weight," the young mom tells PEOPLE. "I think it's hurtful for any girl when someone's criticizing their weight on a national level. It's an awkward position."
APOLO & KARINA
"It's going to be fun and exciting to see Apolo's creativity, charm, drive and personality on the dance floor again," season 13 champ Karina Smirnoff tells PEOPLE about season-four victor Apolo Anton Ohno. "We will soon see how much dancing he has been doing and/or practicing in the off seasons."
SHAWN & DEREK
MELISSA & TONY
EMMITT & CHERYL
KELLY & VAL
Former General Hospital star Kelly Monaco – who won the inaugural title in the competition's first season – makes her return with Val Chmerkovskiy (Maksim's little bro) in an attempt to nab a second mirror-ball trophy.
HéLIO & CHELSIE
After joining the cast in 2008, Chelsie Hightower seeks her first win with season five champ and race car driver Hélio Castroneves.
DREW & ANNA
Battle of the boy bands! After reuniting with 98 Degrees, it seems Drew Lachey (paired with Anna Trebunskaya) has reignited the rivalry with former 'N SYNC member Joey Fatone. "We're good friends and we go back a long way. But the smack-talk is already starting with the boy band competition thing," Lachey jokingly told PEOPLE.
JOEY & KYM
Following his second-place finish to champ Apolo Anton Ohno in season four, the former 'N SYNC is taking a laid-back approach to winning the title with partner Kym Johnson. "I'm not going to take stuff too seriously," he told PEOPLE. "Dancing is supposed to be fun and have emotion. I'm just going to be myself – that's all I can be."
