So far names like Candace Cameron, formerly of “Full House,” and Nene Leakes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” are rumored to dance this coming season.

Also, the dancing reality show has historically cast former The Bachelor and “The Bachelorette” stars competing in the show, but this time around the show admitted they will not have current Latino and controversial “Bachelor,” Juan Pablo Galavis this coming season.

The Latino Ithaca, New York-born soccer star was once perfectly considered for the dancing reality show, but DWTS reported Galavis is “no longer wanted.”

Sadly, the new American-Venezuelan Bachelor began the show with some controversial sayings about the gay community that tainted his image. Dancing with the Stars continued to add that Juan Pablo Galavis was “too risky.”

Moreover, former Baltimore Ravens and Super Bowl champion, Ray Lewis, and former Denver Broncos, New York Jets and New England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow, both were asked to compete for the coveted mirror ball trophy, but not necessarily confirmed if either one will represent the NFL as dancing contestants.

Dancing with the Stars will formally announce the new celebrity cast and professional partners next week, Tuesday March 4th on Good Morning America between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on ABC.

The 18th season of the hit reality dancing show is scheduled to premiere Monday, March 17th on ABC.
