The PeekScores of the Cast of Dancing with the Stars’ 13th Season

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

We were a bit shocked to learn that ABC television is to be premiering the 13th season of its quite popular Dancing with the Stars program, on September 19. Learning that they do two seasons a year was a bit of a relief, as it did seem that 13 years had flown by at an alarming pace, and we didn’t have as much to show for it all as we might have liked. With only six years to account for, we were only half as troubled.

All the same, the cast of the 13th season has been announced, and it seems to consist of the same sort of eclectic mix of pop culture notables and curiosities as usual. This season’s line-up includes people from the world of sports, an actual honest-to-goodness war hero, two different offspring of 60s pop icon couples (who, in fairness, have accomplishments beyond their famous parents to their credits), some folks whose stars have faded perhaps a tad, as well as the expected smattering of people of whom you’re not quite certain either why, or even if, they’re famous (however, they will be, oddly enough, now that they’re on Dancing with the Stars).

In truth, jokes about the “b list” nature of much of the cast aside, this is actually a fairly healthy lot from the PeekScore perspective. In addition to the reasonable amount of coverage they’ve all received in the news media (not least of which, recently, for their involvement with Dancing with the Stars), all of these folks seem pretty wired in; with personal websites, blogs, Twitters, and such, the norm.

Are you a fan of the program? Do you have any favorite stars either on this list, or from previous seasons? Let us know in the comments.
