The "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" contestants have been announced (premieres Mon., Sept. 24, 8 p.m. ET on ABC), but who are the dark horses? And what will the big twists be? Because we know they're not going to have stars back without throwing them a few curveballs ...

I caught up with "DWTS" hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet to talk about the biggest rivalries (Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini will face off again), the memorable moments to top (remember Season 2 winners Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke's "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" routine?) and the dark horses (Pamela Anderson, anyone?).

They also talked strategy, how the partnering will work -- especially since there are so many stars who'll want their original partners back -- and what some big twists might be. Plus, Brooke explained why she chose to not turn in her hosting mic to jump back out on the dancefloor.
