When Erin Andrews looks around at her new “Dancing with the Stars” gig, it may not look too different from her previous posts in sports broadcasting. On Tuesday, ABC revealed the cast for Season 18, and the show is overrun with athletes.

Of the 12 participants this season, five are related to the sports world. Three are Olympians, including recent Sochi medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Former NHL bad boy Sean Avery will be out for blood on the hardwood. And if a dance marathon breaks out, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad is on the scene.

Below is the full cast of participants for the latest season, as well as their dance partners:

Sean Avery - Hockey player (Karina Smirnoff)
Candace Cameron Bure - “Full House” (Mark Ballas)
Drew Carey - “The Price is Right” (Cheryl Burke)
Meryl Davis - Olympic ice dance gold medalist (Maksim Chmerkovskiy)
NeNe Leakes - “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (Tony Dovolani)
Danica McKellar - “The Wonder Years” (with Val Chmerkovskiy)
James Maslow - “Big Time Rush” (Peta Murgatroyd)
Diana Nyad - Swimmer (Henry Byalikov)
Amy Purdy - U.S. Paralympic Team Snowboarder (Derek Hough)
Cody Simpson - Pop musician (Whitney Carson)
Charlie White - Olympic ice dance gold medalist (Sharna Burgess)
