Pamela Anderson partnered with Tristan MacManus for ‘Dancing with the Stars: All Stars’

She may have given up men for "Dancing with the Stars," but there's one guy Pamela Anderson can't avoid: Tristan MacManus.

This morning it was announced that for her second time on the ABC show's dance floor, Anderson will cha-cha-cha with the 30-year-old Irish dancer.

If you're scratching your head, don't worry -- you're not alone. Unlike veterans Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, MacManus is a relative newcomer to the show, not unlike Anderson's last partner.

In season 10 of "DWTS," the Canadian "Baywatch" star was paired with Australian pro Damian Whitewood, in his first time competing on the series. The duo came in sixth place, getting eliminated in the seventh week of the show (Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough eventually won the season).

Anderson's chances are looking a lot better this time around, considering MacManus has competed on "DWTS" before. He was paired with TV host Nancy Grace in season 13, getting eliminated the week before the semifinals and earning the fifth-place spot for the season. MacManus was also partnered with singer Gladys Knight last season, and though they only finished in eighth place, he did earn high scores for a dance he performed with Mark Ballas and celeb Katherine Jenkins.

Regardless of her partner's strengths, Anderson, whose aunt Vie encouraged her to join "DWTS" the first time around, is still game to compete.

"They didn't have to twist my arm, I wanted to do it right away," she recently told Access Hollywood. "It's all the great things I love, that you have to be daring and it's a challenge and it's an art form and it's therapeutic and it's so great."
