Jennifer Grey joins the cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 11 tonight on ABC. Get to know a little about Jennifer Grey before he hits the dance floor in the 2010 premiere of Dancing With The Stars.

Jennifer Grey is on top of the odds as favorite to win this season of Dancing With the Stars. Jennifer is best known for her role as Baby in Dirty Dancing and it is that role and the dancing she did in that movie that make her the odds on favorite.

While most people remember Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing, she has been in over 30 different movies and TV show including the cult classics Red Dawn and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  Jennifer’s red-hot career took a downward slide in 1999 when she got a nose job. The surgery was botched so badly she had to have a second surgery to repair the damage from the first. The results left her with a face so changed that even some of her closest friends didn’t recognize her. Because of this change her acting career suffered greatly. She has said of the event, “I went in the operating room a celebrity – and came out anonymous. It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible.” Will the past haunt Jennifer Grey on DWTS Season 11?

Jennifer Grey even considered changing her name and starting over from scratch as a different person, but she changed her mind when she got a part on a short lived sitcom. In that show she played a struggling actress named Jennifer Grey. She even used the show to poke fun at herself and her botched nose job.  Since then Grey has been working more and more steadily.

Jennifer Grey has the perfect mix of skills and likeability that very well could lead her to the trophy. She clearly can dance and she is pretty, fit and has performed on Broadway so performing in front of a live crowd shouldn’t be too intimidating for her. She will have a core group of fans that love her from her Dirty Dancing days and Hollywood loves a come back, which is what Jennifer Grey is in the middle of. She has the odds as favorite and if she stays focused, she will be very hard to beat on this season of Dancing With The Stars.

Catch Jennifer Grey on the Dancing With The Stars Season 11 premiere tonight at 8|7c on ABC.
