'Dancing with the Stars' — Remembering the Celebrities Who Took Part in Season 1

Season one of "Dancing With The Stars" featured only six contestants, yet it was the kind of celebrity line-up that fans have generally expected from the show. 

During the first season, there was a boy band member, a supermodel, a "Bachelor" star, a soap opera star, a comic actor, and an athlete.

Season one ran for six weeks from June 1 to July 6, 2005. Scroll on to remember the celebrities who participated in the first season of "DWTS."

KELLY MONACO

Kelly Monaco's TV debut came in 1997 when she landed a recurring role on "Baywatch" (1989). She has since segued into the feature film world with roles in "Idle Hands" (1999), "Mumford" (1999), and "BASEketball" (1998).

Monaco is extremely close with her family, particularly her great-grandma. She appreciates volunteering for kid's charity events, as well as working with older folks.

RACHEL HUNTER

Rachel Hunter is an actress and producer, known for "The Benchwarmers" (2006), "Rock Star" (2001), and "Dead Write" (2007). She was previously married to Rod Stewart.

TRISTA SUTTER

Trista Sutter was the runner-up of the first season of "The Bachelor" and the first Bachelorette star. In 2003, she tied the knot with her husband Ryan Sutter. The couple first met on season one of "The Bachelorette."

EVANDER HOLYFIELD

Evander Holyfield, a boxing legend, was clearly the biggest star in the first season of "DWTS." In 2012, Holyfield retired from boxing for good.

After "DWTS," he showed up on "Celebrity Big Brother U.K" and, unfortunately, became the first housemate to be evicted.

At the age of 57, Holyfield looked fit as a fiddle as he regularly burns calories with an exhausting weights session.

JOEY MCINTYRE

Since the age of six, Joseph McIntyre has been working as an artist. He shot to fame when he was picked to become a member of the band New Kids on the Block in 1985.

After the band broke up in 1994, McIntyre pursued acting and was chosen to star as Matt Hucklebee in the hit 2000 film, "The Fantasticks."

JOHN O' HURLEY

John O'Hurley has starred in several hit projects, including "Seinfeld" (1989) and  "A Whole New Ballgame" (1995).
