With the Dancing With The Stars 5 cast set to be officially announced
on Good Morning America on Wednesday, August 29, the rumors are flying
hot and heavy over which celebrities will be taking part in the hit
show’s fifth season. Reality TV Magazine surfed the various celebrity
gossip sites and message boards and compiled a list of all the rumored
According to posts by fans on the official ABC Dancing With The Stars message board, rumored celebrity names include Lou Ferrigno, Wayne Newton, Aaron Carter, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Richard Quest, Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Nia Peeples, Patrick Swayze, Helio Castroneves, Jane Seymour, Marily Henner, Giselle Bunchen, Ashley Tisdale, John Stamos, Greta Van Sustern, Barry Williams, Oscar De La Hoya, Marie Osmond, Sabrina Bryan, and Mark Cuban.
Since there are twenty-two rumored cast members but only twelve celebrities participating, some of the rumored names are obviously incorrect. The rumors of Giselle Bunchen, Mark Cuban, Wayne Newton, and Jane Seymour seem to have some reliability as choreographer Nick Kosovich posted a comment on someone’s MySpace.com with their names listed. Entertainment Weekly has reported in an exclusive that Wayne Newton would be a cast member, and In Touch Weekly has reported in an exclusive that Jennie Garth would be a cast member. Reports of Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown’s involvement in the show have come from the Irish Examiner. The Cheetah Girls MySpace page lists that Sabrina Bryan will be a cast member on the upcoming Dancing With The Stars.
Based on the more reliable sources and the most re-occurring rumors, our prediction is that the actual cast will be Wayne Newton, Jennie Garth, Melanie Brown, Jayne Seymour, Mark Cuban, Aaron Carter, Richard Quest, Giselle Bunchen, Helio Castroneves, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Sabrina Bryan, and Nia Peeples. Of course, we wouldn’t be surprised if either Lou Ferrigno or Patrick Swayze replaced one of the male names on our prediction list.
