The new cast for Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars has been announced to the usual grumblings–because there aren’t enough actual stars, for example, and also because everybody was really hoping for Bruce Jenner. There aren’t many sex symbols, either. Or so you might think if you only know Danice McKellar as the former child star of The Wonder Years who went on to become a mathematician MILF. (Or if you’ve forgotten that Erin Andrews is coming in as the new DWTS hostess.)
We have the pics that’ll get you thinking of Danica McKellar in exciting new ways. A lot of people can’t even remember her as a gal named Winnie from The Wonder Years–which was a hit in the ’80s as a sitcom set in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Fortunately, the former child star first proved she was all grown up while posing in lingerie for Stuff magazine back in 2006. Back then, it was still a big deal that Danica had graduated from UCLA in 1998 with a degree in Mathematics.
She could’ve been the next Bill Nye, but Danica kept working onscreen–including a regular role in The West Wing and joining the parade of hot babes guesting on How I Met Your Mother. Danica turned 39 years old at the start of this year, but we’re still looking forward to her moves on Dancing With the Stars–especially because we remember last year’s Tasmanian Devils, where Danica graced the Syfy Channel while looking really hot in a tank top.
She also looked hot (and showed off some hot moves) in last year’s Avril Lavigne video for “Rock N Roll.” We’re also reminded that Danica has put out a few yoga books, so she’s going to be some serious competition for DWTS Season 18–and here are some pics that’ll get you serious about Danica…
