'Dancing With the Stars' Premiere Recap: Season 19 Kicks Off With Plenty of Sexy Surprises!

DWTS Season 19 cast

Let's be honest ... I can't be the only one out there who really wasn't expecting very much from the Dancing With the Stars season 19 premiere.

I mean, aside from a couple of pretty well known names, the cast roster this time around is kind of ... random?

I totally anticipated being bored to tears by about the second or third dance tonight, but I gotta say, I'm shocked and pleasantly surprised by just how entertaining this cast is!

And OMG -- did this premiere pretty much ooze sex appeal or what?


First out of the gate was Antonio Sabato, Jr., who seems to have great chemistry with Cheryl Burke. He's definitely "easy on the eyes," as she said, to the point where Bruno Tonioli was totally shameless about flirting with him. (Not that he's ever shy. Whatever.)

And how about Lea Thompson calling herself a cougar? Her partner, Artem Chigvintsev, didn't know what hit him, but the two of them really danced beautifully together. (Isn't he the dude who used to date Carrie Ann Inaba? Or did I make that up?)

When it comes to DWTS, every season has that one couple who keeps everyone guessing about the nature of their relationship, and this time it will be Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy for sure. They seem to have this love/hate thing going on right now, though she certainly couldn't resist running her hands all over him in rehearsals. (Not that anyone can blame her.)

And then there's Sadie Robertson, who is so darn adorable, it's impossible not to root for her. She and Mark Ballas are perfectly paired together, don't you think?

Oh, and how hot is that dude from Mean Girls? Jonathan Bennett? Um, helloooooo. Lohan had no idea how good she had it when she worked with him.

And OMG. I thought Carrie Ann was going to lose her shit after watching Randy Couture dance with Karina Smirnoff. I think she even squealed, you guys.

Alfonso Ribeiro also brought the house down, but come on, did you really expect anything less from Carlton? (Please. He kicks ass.)

Sure, there were a few contestants who didn't exactly get off on the right foot tonight (Lolo Jones needs to take a chill pill), but for the most part, the competition looks pretty fierce!

It will be interesting to see who goes home tomorrow night. If I had to guess, I'd say it will be Betsey Johnson or Lolo for sure.

What did you think of the season 19 premiere?
