Posted 30 August 2011 - 01:45 PM
Little did the Season 13 Dancing With The Stars competitors know that they be asked to keep up with a Kardashian.
Born in Los Angeles, Rob Kardashian is the fourth child and only son of the late attorney Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. Rob has five sisters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Rob graduated from the prestigious Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship. Rob stars in the hit reality television show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and in the hit reality series for E! titled Khloe & Lamar.
True to the entrepreneurial attitude he developed during college, Rob is involved in several business ventures. He's co-manager of the pop music, female super-group, BG5 alongside renowned manager Kenneth Crear. He enjoys a successful modeling career as the face of the popular brand, Ocean Pacific. Rob also travels across the country making personal appearances for club venues and charity events.
In his spare time, Rob loves to maintain an active lifestyle. He runs and plays basketball with his NBA Laker champion brother-in-law, Lamar Odom. He loves to play golf and is an avid skier. Rob currently lives in Los Angeles with his sisters Khloe, and Lamar. We have no doubt that more than a few of Rob's famous family members will be sitting front and center to cheer him on as he tries to win it all on Dancing With The Stars!

Cheryl has won over audiences with her creative choreography and effervescent personality. We suspect her dangerously low cut dresses might have something to do with it, too.
Joining the show in the second season with a bang, Cheryl won back-to-back disco ball trophies with partner Drew Lachey in Season 2, and then with Emmitt Smith in Season 3.
But don't let her sweet smile fool you—this girl has some sizzling hot moves and knows just how to show them off! "We want people to think something is going on, on the dance floor," says Cheryl. "You want people to be so uncomfortable watching it because we are going to be so sexy."
Cheryl started ballet lessons at age 4 and was soon performing throughout her native Bay Area. "But at 11, I went to a competition and saw the costumes, heard the music, and loved that the dancers had partners," Burke explains. Incidentally, these are all the same reasons why we love DWTS!
By the age of 13, Cheryl was traveling and competing throughout the world, later moving on to win several championships. Some of her triumphs include being the 2005 Ohio Star Ball Rising Star Champion, 2005 San Francisco Open Latin Champion and 2005 World Cup Professional Rising Star Latin Champion. Burke also clinched several UK Championship titles, and scored a fourth place showing in the U.S. "Under 21s" division.
Capitalizing on her success with DWTS, Cheryl has started her own line of clothing and dance studio, Cheryl Burke Dance, with several locations throughout California. You also may have seen her as a guest star on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
