Executive producer Conrad Green confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the 9th season would start off with 16 celebrities, with 3 double-eliminations halfway through the season. 1 Tom DeLay withdrew from the competition in Week 3; however, Debi Mazar was also eliminated on the same night, replacing the double elimination planned for Week 5. Some changes were added this season including a larger cast and relay dances. Four new dances were introduced to complement the large cast.
