Nye's celebrity competition includes "Jersey Shore's" Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, "King of Queen's" actress Leah Remini, "Saved by the Bell" star Elizabeth Berkley, former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, "Glee" actress Amber Riley, Jack Osbourne, actress Christina Milian, "High School Muscial" star Corbin Bleu, "Pretty Little Liars" star Brant Daugherty, actor/comedian Bill Engvall, and actress Valerie Harper.
"I feel much better," Harper, 74, said of her condition. "And my brain scans are looking better too. The doctors tell me there's less evidence of cancer, which is very unusual. However, they both say it's not a case of if, but when. And I can live with that."
The 17th season of "Dancing with the Stars" kicks off Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
