Vernon Kay, host of ABC’s upcoming “Million Dollar Mind Game” and one of the most popular television presenters in the United Kingdom, and Olympian Tanith Belbin, the most decorated U.S. Ice Dancer in history, will serve as host and color commentator, respectively, of ABC’s highly anticipated new series, “Skating with the Stars,” from BBC Worldwide Productions. The series premieres Monday, November 22 (9:11-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In addition, the following pro skaters will be paired with “Skating with the Stars'” amazing roster of celebrities: Bethenny Frankel & Ethan Burgess, Brandon Mychal Smith & Keauna McLaughlin, Jonny Moseley & Brooke Castile, Rebecca Budig & Fred Palascak, Sean Young & Denis Petukhov and Vince Neil & Jennifer Wester.
All six pairs will take to the ice with their professional partners for the first time in front of a live audience, with the pairs performing high-paced ice dancing moves and dazzling figure skating routines. The pairs will need to be perfectly in sync as they speed across the unforgiving ice. The pair with the lowest ranking following the judges’ scores and votes from the public will be sent home the following week.
