As we’re on the eve of the announcement of the first season 21 celeb in less than 12 hours, I figured it was time to come up with a summary post of all the rumors we’ve covered so far this season.
As usual, here’s my explanation: I’ve divided our potential dancers this season into 5 categories: the “legitimate possibilities”, which are rumors that have surfaced within the last week or so (when most casting leaks occur) and come from sources that are generally pretty reliable when it comes to casting leaks; the “long shots”, which are rumors from less-reliable sources, vague tweets, and ambiguous responses from the celebs themselves – basically, rumors that we aren’t really as confident about; the “wannabes/campaigners”, who are celebs who have expressed interest in doing the show (but haven’t actually been reported as a rumor by any reputable outlets); “pure randomness”, which is for random and slightly interesting observations that may or may not indicate a certain celeb’s possible participation in this season – generally, they mean nothing, but we’re adding them here for sh*ts & giggles 🙂 And then there are the “no’s”, the celebs that have confirmed that they won’t be participating in this season. I’ve added short notes in wherever I’ve found it pertinent.
I’m a just leave this here. ~Heidi
Anthony Davis (said he turned it down – but acted rather wishy-washy about it)
Kobe Bryant or Vanessa Bryant
Boris Kodjoe (was originally supposed to be on season 18, but backed out)
Drita D’Avanzo (draw your own conclusions – but it’s interesting)
The Definite No’s:
Jodie Sweetin (personally told me “not this season”, but an interesting person liked my picture of her on Instagram)
Don’t forget to keep an eye on this post to see the names announced each morning this week on GMA! (NOTE: post won’t be active until tomorrow morning)
