Season 5

To avoid direct competition with Fox's American Idol, Dancing with the Stars changed time slots from the previous season. In this season, the performance show aired on Mondays, and the results show aired on Tuesdays. No elimination was scheduled for the first week, in order to allow viewers two weeks to see all of the couples perform both Latin and Standard ballroom dances. This season was broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom on Sunday afternoons from Sunday, July 15, 2007.

On May 22, 2007, olympic short-track speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough were announced the winners, marking the first win for Hough.[1]

CastEdit

CouplesEdit

The cast consisted of eleven couples. Actor Vincent Pastore was originally announced as partnering with Edyta Śliwińska, but pulled out after one week of rehearsals, being replaced by the actor John Ratzenberger.[2] However, ESPN host Mike Greenberg had actively campaigned for Pastore's spot on the show.[3] Comedian Tammy Pescatelli was elected to be on the show, however, the producers chose a different direction and Heather Mills was chosen instead.
