Dancing With the Stars is set to premiere season 18 in March, and many celebrities are in talks to compete in the spring 2014 season.
There are always multiple rumors about which celebrities are set to appear on seasons of Dancing With the Stars, but very few are genuine. There have been plenty more rumors about season 18, including an "all-Oscar winners" cast, but ABC has not confirmed anything to this effect.
One of the more legitimate rumors is that Olympian-turned-reality star Bruce Jenner will compete, according to a report by Us Weekly. The magazine reported in January that Jenner was "dying" to compete in Dancing With the Stars.
Jenner's stepchildren Kim Kardashian and Rob Kardashian competed in the seventh and 13th seasons, respectively.
Australian pop singer Cody Simpson also revealed that he has received an offer to be on Dancing With the Stars in season 18. The singer tweeted to his fans in December asking them if they wanted to see him compete in the long-running reality show.
Another reported celebrity in talks to be in season 18 is Kelly Brook, a British model and hostess. Brook is allegedly "in talks" with DWTS producers to compete in the show, according to The Mirror. She has already competed in Strictly Come Dancing, the British version of DWTS, and she would be the first to cross over and do both shows.
As for when to expect a casting announcement for season 18, the season 17 cast was announced 12 days before the premiere in September, so they may follow the same schedule. An announcement should likely be expected in early March.
Dancing With the Stars season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
