Dew Lachey

Drew Lachey was such a fan favorite on Dancing with the Stars that they brought him back to co-host for awhile. Now he’s returning once more as a Dancing All-Star.

Drew Lachey, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, is best known for his multi-platinum pop group 98 Degrees, which he joined with his brother Nick in 1995. Drew is the Season 2 winner of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, beating out 10 other dance couples in 2006. He also served as co-host of the show and hosted ABC's Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, a live, one-hour series that featured teams created by judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

A Broadway veteran, Drew starred as Mark Cohen in Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent, and as King Arthur’s right-hand man, Patsy, in Mike Nichol’s award-winning production of Monty Python’s Spamalot. Other onstage work includes Corny Collins in Hairspray and the Dancing with the Stars tour.

Drew also hosted HGTV's $250,000 Dollar Challenge, a reality show where families compete to pay off their mortgage with home-improvement challenges, America Sings for the Gospel Music Channel and the Miss USA Pageant, which he co-hosted with Nancy O’Dell.

Drew, along with design partner Sabrina Soto, won the celebrity edition of HGTV's Showdown Battle of the Bonus Room, where the team beat designer Matthew Finlason and figure skater champion, Kristi Yamaguchi. Drew is married and is a proud father of two

Anna Trebunskaya

A native of Russia, Anna has been dancing ever since she was six years old. We're thinking it was only natural, as her parents owned a dance studio. She took part in her first competition at the age of seven. And guess what? She won! It was the start of a trend, as she's been winning awards and accolades as an amateur and pro ever since!

Anna moved to the U.S. with her parents in 1998 when she was 17. Both mom and dad were professional ballroom dancers, and her mother still makes her costumes today. Way to keep it all in the family, Anna!

In Season Two of DWTS, Anna paired with football great Jerry Rice to make the finals, and ultimately a second place finish. In Season Five, she paired with model Albert Reed and in Season 6 she danced with actor/funnyman Steve Guttenberg. And in Season 10, Anna made it to the finals, finishing second with Evan Lysacek.

But none of those pairings compare to the one she has offstage. We just love the fact that Anna is married to fellow DWTS pro Jonathan Roberts. Wonder if they carpool to work.
