The official unveiling of the latest contestants for the new season of Dancing with the Stars won’t be announced until Tuesday, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned some of the names that will be competing to lift the coveted Mirror Ball.
And, RadarOnline.com can confirm the rumors that have been swirling around for weeks that hunky Sean Lowe of the Bachelor is penciled in to be taking part too — although a source tells Radar exclusively it’s unlikely he will be named Tuesday as part of the official line up — as producers are still trying to iron out some contractual issues before making the announcement.
Wynonna Judd is another name that’s been mentioned, before Good Morning America makes the official announcement on February 26. But Radar hasn’t had confirmation on the country music star yet.
Meanwhile, someone who looks likely to not be returning is ballroom bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
The 33-year-old dancer, who has been on the show since Season 2 and was recently seen teaming up with Kirstie Alley on the hit show’s All-Stars edition, announced he was about to embark on something completely different.
“BAM! Someone landed in LA LA LAND! So many peeps to catch up with! So much exciting stuff coming up!” he Tweeted on Friday, adding, “#OutWithTheOld,” he wrote.
