Buenos Aires – Retired boxing champ Mike Tyson and sex symbol Pamela Anderson will feature in the upcoming season of the popular Argentine television show "Bailando 2011" (Dancing 2011), the program's producers told Efe Friday.
Other competitors on the Argentine counterpart of "Dancing with the Stars" will include Spanish hypnotist Tony Kamo and Paraguayan lingerie model Larissa Riquelme, who became famous as the "World Cup sweetheart" for her enthusiastic support of Paraguay's national team during the 2010 tournament in South Africa.
Tyson and Anderson are currently working with a dancing instructor in the United States in preparation for "Bailando 2011," which debuts May 16 on Buenos Aires' Channel 13, the production company said.
Some 30 figures from the worlds of entertainment and sports have been lined up for this season of one of Argentina's most-watched programs.
The 43-year-old Anderson has already appeared in a dance show on Israeli television and was a guest last year on the Indian version of "Big Brother."
