The Dancing With the Stars season hasn’t even begun, but fans are heating up with the news about who might be joining the show for Season 19. The cast won’t officially be confirmed until Sept. 4 when they are revealed on Good Morning America, but some of the rumored celebrities on the list are interesting.
On Tuesday night, E! News kicked the cast rumors into high gear by revealing that General Hospital star Antonio Sabato Jr. was set to join Season 19.
On Wednesday morning, the entertainment site then spilled that Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish and Olympian Lolo Jones were also a part of the fall season. Parrish was killed off the ABC Family show in last night’s episode, so the timing is perfect if the rumor is true.
TMZ reported that they had obtained the DWTS producers’ wish list, which had some other curious names like the recent Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, American Ninja Warrior contestant Kacy Catanzaro and ex-UFC fighter Randy Couture. The site also mentioned that a female YouTube star was in the mix to bring in a younger demographic.
The source told the gossip site that the YouTuber had “tens of millions of followers.” Some possible names include Bethany Mota, Jenna Marbles and makeup guru Michelle Phan.
The ABC show has a new producer on board and Rob Wade has proved he’s making his mark on DWTS. He added a fourth judge by bringing back former pro dancer Julianne Hough and he announced the pro dancer cast on GMA in early August.
In addition, DWTS tweeted out that they will be announcing a 13th pro. This means the cast size has increased from 12 to 13 celebrities.

Wade sure knows how to whip fans into a frenzy.
