August 19, 2013 05:25 AM by Lisa Princ

Season 17 of Dancing With The Stars is just around the corner and we’ve already learned a few of the pro dancers that will be returning, but what about the celebrities? If you can’t wait for the official announcement, you’re in luck as we’ve got a few of the celebrity names that are rumored to be gearing up their dance shoes for the new season!

Ah, let the casting rumors begin! If you’re anything like I am, you love hearing all the rumors of who may possibly be joining Dancing With The Stars. With all the drama surrounding Paula Deen, she was the last name rumored to be a possible contestant, but she put those rumors to rest. However, we’ve now learned a few more names who very well may be joining the season 17 cast.

Recently, a Twitter post popped up from a Huffington Post employee, who stated that a yogurt spokesperson would be one of the contestants on the new season. That means it could be one of two people: Jamie Lee Curtis or John Stamos. Stamos, aka the heart throb from Full House is currently the spokesperson for Dannon Oikos yogurt, while Curtis is the spokesperson for Activia.

Meanwhile, in an interview with KTLA, Brooke Burke hinted at another possible contestant – Abbey Lee Miller from the hit show, Dance Moms! Now that may be interesting to watch, don’t you think? Other rumors include former Red Sox star Jason Varitek, as well as former Survivor star Eddie Fox.

The new cast is set to be announced on September 4 on GMA. The new season kicks off on September 16.

I love ballroom dancing and am currently learning Argentine Tango.It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried,but I’m not giving up//I would like to see Steve Harvey,Whoopy Goldberg,Kathy Lee Gifford,Amy Lee Miller(I want to see how she likes to be yelled at)Donald Trump,Barbra Walters,and bring Rob Kardashion back. Can’t wait for the show to started again.I would love to dance with Len Goodwin. We have mutual friends.Sal and Janice DiMaria. I took ballroom classes at Sal’s Fred Astair Studio when I was in my fifties and in dance competitions in the Geritol Division with ladies my own age.(Won four First Place Trophies) Lots of fun///We had three months to prepare. Don’t think I could do that at your pace. Hurry up//We are all waiting for the new season to begin no matter who you choose.

    I would love to see some retired baseball players on the show so I’m hoping Jason Varitek will be one of the celebrities. If not him, some other baseball star. Football is not the only sport out there. Also would LOVE to see John Stamos on the show. He gets better and better!

    It would be great to see BOTH Jaime Lee Curtis AND John Stamos compete! They’re known celebrities, in great shape and FUN! It’ll be the “Battle of the Yogurt Stars”! LOL Seeing the athletes compete is always interesting. Several football stars have “cut a mean rug” and a b-baller or two have done okay; let’s see what the baseball pros have got for us, too.

    To be honest, who I would like to see would have no bearing on the selection of the show, but I will say anyway.

    What about having say . . . Joe Montana, or maybe Dan Marino?
    What about having someone like say . . . Danica Patrick, or Richard Petty?
    Maybe have Sarah Michelle Gellar, or Jennifer Aniston?
    If you want a baseball player, let’s go with a Hall of Famer, like Ryne Sandberg, or Nolan Ryan?

    The list is endless, and anyone would be a good fit with the show . . . this season is going to be very interesting indeed.
