Apolo Anton Ohno (with Karina Smirnoff)
Previous outing: The gold-medal Olympic speed skater, 30, won Season 4 with Julianne Hough.
Rebuffed by Hough: He personally reached out to see if she'd return. "I called her on the phone. She said she wanted to come back. But she's busy with a new career. I'm with Karina. She's an amazing person and incredible dancer."
First dance: Cha-cha. "People are going to want to get out of their seat and dance. That's the goal."
