With the announcement of this season of “Dancing with the Stars” celebrities only days away, rumors are flying about who will join the cast.

Nene Leakes and Candace Cameron Bure were the first reported contestants, and now, it seems Australian singer Cody Simpson is in talks to join the cast, according to E! News.

Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis will reportedly not be among the announced contestants, as the idea was dropped after the controversy.

A source tells E! that Juan Pablo is “no longer wanted” because there’s “too much negativity at this point.”

The reality star courted controversy following some comments he made when asked if there should be a gay “Bachelor,” and two of the women have decided to leave him and the show this season.

The cast will be announced on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, March 4, while the premiere will air on Monday, March 17.

Would you root for Cody? Do you wish Juan Pablo would dance? Weigh in below!
