The celeb line-up for ‘DWTS’ Season 16 won’t officially be revealed until Feb. 26, but HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned of the first few people cast! Read on for all the inside scoop.

Dancing With the Stars fans, prepare to get excited! Even though the Season 16 of the veteran reality show won’t premiere until March 18 on ABC, and the season’s cast won’t be announced until Feb. 26 on Good Morning America, we’ve learned the names the first few people who are warming up their dancing feet!

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Cast — Season 16

A source close to the show tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that current Bachelor Sean Lowe, celebrity chef Bobby Flay (Who is not officially signed but close to 100%), and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman are the first three stars to have joined the show’s cast. Not only that, but an unidentified boxer is said to be in the mix, as well!

We have also learned country superstar Wynonna Judd and fellow country singer Kellie Pickler will be also a part of the cast.

Our insider also tells us that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been asked to flex his dancing muscles week to week, but the jury’s still out on whether his name will be announced on GMA.

Past ‘Bachelor’ Stars On ‘DWTS’

The name we’re most excited about, of course, is Sean! Prior Bachelor alumni who have appeared on DWTS, including Jake Pavelka, Trista Rehn Sutter, and Melissa Rycroft have always done well. Melissa even took home the mirrorball trophy in Season 15!

Rumors had been circling that Sean had been asked to strut his stuff, with Us Weekly recently quoting a show source who said, “We would love to have him.” Eliminated Bachelor contestant Sarah Herron spoke with Ryan Seacrest on his morning radio show about the possibility, placing herself firmly on Team Sean.

“I think Sean could definitely pull it together to make it all the way on ‘Dancing with the Stars,'” she said. “He’s incredibly athletic and a quick adapter to all sorts of activities. So, I think he could do really good.”

Which star are you most looking forward to seeing on DWTS this season, HollywoodLifers?

Hopefully, DWTS will not have another winner that is annointed early because ABC has a show lined up for them and wants to crown the winner – to gather steam for the new show. I’ve heard comments about the judges changing, but they need to be fair and not so obvious with comments on the ‘one’ annointed for the current season.
