Us Magazine is reporting that David Hasselhoff will be one of the sort-of celebrities to compete on the upcoming season of ABC’s powerhouse show Dancing With the Stars.

The man with 478 television lives has been a hot commodity lately, well at least a hot commodity to make fun of!  He was the most recent target of Comedy Central’s roast series and boy-oh-boy did the man with a drink in his hand get toasted.  Seemingly unflappable, The Hoff has taken it all in stride and is still laughing at the rest of us as he embarks on his latest boob-tube adventure.

The “German Springsteen” (play above embedded song for an example) is the first officially confirmed contestant but rumors are swirling that reality TV stars Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame and Audrina Patridge from MTV’s The Hills will also participate.  The official announcement of who will be joining David Hasselhoff will come during Monday night’s broadcast of The Bachelor Pad.

To give you a taste of what to expect here is a vintage clip circa 1976 from the movie Revenge of the Cheerleaders of The Hoff doing…  There simply aren’t words!

We don’t even need the list of other contestants do we?  Go ahead and give the trophy or whatever you win on DWTS to David.  He’s obviously got the right stuff.
