ABC is notoriously tight-lipped about revealing the celebs who sign up to compete on Dancing With the Stars until the network’s own announcement, but that doesn’t stop spoiler fanatics from tracking down the prospective cast members before they’re officially revealed.
The DWTS Season 16 cast will be revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Feb. 26, which means the beginner dancers have already started rehearsing. TMZ reports that among those hoofing it for a chance at the mirrorball trophy this year are Andy Dick, Lisa Vanderpump, and D.L. Hughley, who were all spotted on the show’s set on Monday, Feb. 25.
Dick seems like a bit of a wild card, considering his past reality TV experience consists of a season of Celebrity Rehab on VH1 and these days he most frequently makes headlines for his lewd, drunken behavior.
TMZ isn’t 100 percent certain that Vanderpump and Hughley have signed on, but the outlet reports that other competitors this year include current Bachleor Sean Lowe (gotta have that ABC synergy!), country stars Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, and boxer Victor Ortiz.
ABC already confirmed (via a splashy commercial during the Oscars) that Super Bowl-winning Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones try to parlay his end zone dance into a DWTS victory as the first official Season 16 contestant.
