There has been a lot of talk about the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars" and much of it is on who will be cast, who turned it down and who were not even asked. One popular celebrity has been confirmed not to compete in the show on season 18 and that is the "Bachelor's" Juan Pablo Galavis. According to reports, Galavis is not even being considered to participate because of his latest anti-gay scandal.
The current bachelor has recently caused controversy after saying he did not think a gay Bachelor is a good idea. "He is just too risky," a source allegedly close to the Bachelor told E! Online. "There is just too much negativity at this point."
Another one who will not be part of the next season is NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, who recently told Access Hollywood that he just turned down an offer to join DWTS. "I need to focus on my football career at the moment. It is one of those things where I am trying to do as much as I can to win football games for our franchise and for the Seattle Seahawks," Wilson said. However, he did not rule out a future season when he could compete on the show. "At one point, I am going to definitely do it. I love Dancing With the Stars. I love watching and I love dancing so hopefully I could win," he added.
Meanwhile, Season 13 winner Karina Smirnoff said former United States president Bill Clinton could compete on the show. She reportedly approached the former president during an L.A. charity event and asked him to join the show. However, Clinton reportedly declined. "This is interesting. Actually they contacted me once about it and I told them I did not have the time to train for it," Clinton said on The Rachel Ray Show. "You actually go there and train. You really work for it."
ABC is set to announce the season cast of Dancing With the Stars officially on Tuesday, March 4 on Good Morning America. The show will premiere on Monday, March 17 at 8:00 P.M. on ABC.
