Dancing With the Stars has only one confirmed celebrity contestant for its upcoming season so far— former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe! It was announced back in June that Bristowe had joined season 29. However, a source close to DWTS has reportedly told E! News that Tiger King's Carole Baskin, actresses Chrishell Stause and Anne Heche, and Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean are all in final talks to join the show!

The source also mentions that Dr. Anthony Fauci was approached to compete on DWTS, but the medical professional declined the offer! Earlier in the month, the list of pro dancers who would be returning to the show was released. The roster for season 29 includes many familiar names and a few new ones as well! As Entertainment Tonight mentions, the celebrity cast for season 29 will be officially announced on September 2.

Back in July, longtime DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews made the surprise announcement that they're exiting the show. Shortly afterwards, it was announced that Tyra Banks would be taking over as host! There's no question that season 29 of Dancing With the Stars is shaping up to be quite an exciting one. We can't wait to see if these stars will end up in the ballroom, and who else will join them!
