'Dancing With The Stars' Casting Speculation Points Toward Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone
It's that time of year again to speculate about who will be the next stars to dance as if their celebrity were at stake on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, following NFL Green Bay Packers' Donald Driver's recent season 14 victory. But this is no ordinary Dancing with the Stars season we're gearing up for — get ready for Dancing with the Stars: All Stars.
If you want to know ahead of time who is set to pair up with pros like Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (pictured) for the fall season, don't expect to get any help from the network, ABC, a rep for whom revealed, in no uncertain terms, that ABC would not comment on any casting decisions. However, you don't have to wait for long, as the official lineup will be announced on Friday afternoon.
Despite relative calm online about who will fill coveted spots, some names being thrown around include The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft from season 8, former 'N Sync boy bander Joey Fatone from season 4, Queer Eye's Carson Kressley from season 13, and possibly even Sarah Palin's own offspring, Bristol Palin, whose reality show on Lifetime, Life's a Tripp, has all but officially fizzled, reports EW.
Reportedly, Dancing with the Stars executive producer Conrad Green will announce most of the returning stars, but let viewers vote on who gets the final spot!
For more about who gets chosen to grace season 15 of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars, tune in to ABC on Friday at 1:30 p.m. EST.
