ABC has named dance partners who will team with Jersey Shore's "The Situation," Bristol Palin and international renaissance man David Hasselhoff on the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars."
The network revealed the lineup of celebrities who will try out their footwork on season 11 of the reality dance competition in a live special Monday night.
