With just a week and change to go before the celebrity lineup of "Dancing with the Stars" 2014 is revealed during the March 4 episode of "Good Morning America," a Feb. 24 Hollywood Life article named nine notables who were allegedly asked to participate in the hit reality dance competition's spring season.
Citing an unnamed source close to the show, the report named "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star and former Olympian Bruce Jenner, Aussie teen heartthrob Cody Simpson, reality star Sharon Osbourne, "The Bachelor" Juan Pablo Galavis, model and former "Strictly Come Dancing" contestant Kelly Brook, "The Chew" co-host Carla Hall, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, ESPN analyst Stuart Scott, and former Baltimore Ravens' linebacker Ray Lewis as potential mirror ball trophy hopefuls. Although all have allegedly been asked to compete, none have officially agreed to do so.
Of the celebs named, only Simpson's camp has confirmed the receipt of an invitation to compete. In a Feb. 24 article, the 17-year old entertainer told Just Jared that though he had yet to commit to "DWTS," he considered it a "cool opportunity."
Both Osbourne and Jenner have close ties to "DWTS." Osbourne's offspring Kelly and Jack both competed, as did Jenner's step-children Kim and Rob Kardashian.
Although no Olympians are listed, several, including ice dance gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White, have expressed interest in taking part in the competition.
"Dancing with the Stars" 2014 premieres March 17 on ABC.
