katherine jenkinsThe Dancing With the Stars Season 14 cast was announced this morning, and while there are a couple of very recognizable names on the list, there were a few that made us do a double take and think to ourselves, "Who the heck is that?"

Take Katherine Jenkins, for example. C'mon -- you know who Katherine Jenkins is, right? Yeah, don't feel bad, because none of us have ever heard of her either. It turns out that she is a Welsh singer, and she is considered to be a cross-over between classical and pop music, but also digs opera songs and hymns. Hmm. On paper, she really doesn't sound all that interesting. But after checking her out a bit further and perusing her website, I'd say that there's a very good reason as to why she was cast on DWTS this season.

And it's mainly because she's hot, single, and blond, which seems to be a very desirable quality on that show. Wait -- did I forget to mention that she's paired up to dance with everyone's favorite DWTS casanova, Mark Ballas?

Mark has been romantically linked to pretty much every single gal he's danced with on the show. It all started when he got hot and heavy with Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan. After that, everyone just started assuming that he was getting it on with all of his partners. From Chelsea Hightower to Bristol Palin to Kristin Cavallari, Mark Ballas certainly seems to get around when it comes to hook-up rumors.

Ok, if you aren't quite convinced that these two will totally have people asking whether or not they are dating, then take a look at one of Katherine's official music videos below.

She's got Mark Ballas material written all over her, doesn't she? It might be worth suffering through the other boring cast members this season just to catch a glimpse of these two interacting and flirting during rehearsals. How fun would another Dancing With the Stars romance be?

Is there anyone you are particularly excited to watch on DWTS this season?
