How will the Housewife do?
Dust off your dancing shoes because ABC’s Dancing With The Stars is heading into its 16th season Monday night — and the sidestepping race to the top is going to be a tough one.

After last season’s All-Star battle saw Season 8 alum Melissa Rycroft take home the coveted mirror ball trophy, DWTS has returned to its original format as 12 fresh-yet-famous faces compete for the new champion title.

So, who’s getting a chance to go all the way?

From an Olympic winner to a Disney tween queen, this season’s contestants come from all corners of Hollywood.

Launch the gallery above to meet the celebrity contenders — and their professional dance  partners — then let us know who you want to win in the poll below.
