Just hours after E!'s Kristin Dos Santos spoiled the identity of the first celebrity contestant of the "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2014 season, spoiler sources erupted with even more casting news on Aug. 27. So which well-known --and not so well-known-- figures will allegedly cha cha and foxtrot for the coveted mirror ball trophy when the season premieres Sept. 15 on ABC?

According to Dos Santos, "General Hospital" alum and reality TV regular Antonio Sabato Jr. will be joined in the esteemed ballroom by a young actress and a two-sport Olympian. The actress is 25-year old "Pretty Little Liars" starlet Janel Parrish. Although ABC does not comment on casting rumors, Parrish's co-star Lucy Hale confirmed the rumor with an Aug. 27 tweet that read "Congrats to one of the sweetest gals in the world for her exciting news about joining dancing with the stars! @JanelParrish I [heart] you!" Hale has since deleted the tweet.

The Olympian in question is track star turned bobsledder Lolo Jones. The well-rounded 32-year old athlete competed in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Games, as well as the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

TMZ also leaked a list of additional stars who are supposedly part of the "DWTS" producers' season 19 "wish list." Included are "The Bachelorette" star Andi Dorfman, former UFC fighter Randy Couture, and "American Ninja Warrior" contestant Kacy Catanzaro, whose recent dominance of the reality competition's physically grueling course earned her instant stardom.

"DWTS" is also allegedly romancing an unnamed YouTube sensation who boasts "tens of millions of followers." Citing an Aug. 26 tweet that referenced an early call, entertainment correspondent Kristyn Burtt speculated that the mystery contestant would be Bethany Mota. The 18-year old is a highly successful video blogger.

To find out if the rumors are on the mark, watch the official celebrity cast reveal Sept. 4 during "Good Morning America." The "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2014 season begins Sept. 15 with the first night of the reality show's two-night premiere.
