Melissa Joan Hart
Season 9, ninth place
Before "Dancing with the Stars": Melissa Joan Hart grew up on TV with starring roles on "Clarissa Explains It All" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Once she hit her late 20s, though, Hart spent less time working and more time with her family, raising her two children with husband Mark Wilkerson.
After "Dancing with the Stars": Getting a so-so ninth place in Season 9 of the series was enough to completely revive her career. Her ABC Family movie "My Fake Fiance" with Joey Lawrence was parlayed into a comedy on the same network. "Melissa and Joey" debuted to ABC Family's best ever series premiere ratings.
