Melissa Rycroft and Pamela Anderson are rumored to be among the cast of the all-stars edition, while Carson Kressley is said to be one of three former contestants whom fans can choose.
Just days before the official announcement is made, rumor is floating around regarding who will be competing in the "Dancing with the Stars" all-stars edition. Entertainment Weekly learns that there is a twist in the casting process as ABC will reportedly let audience pick one of the returning stars.
When ABC unveils the cast line-up on Friday, July 27, the network will also announce three names whom fans can vote to get the final spot on the show. Words are, Carson Kressley, who was one of the most entertaining contestants in season 13, will be among those who can be chosen.
As for the other possible contestants, Melissa Rycroft from season 8, Joey Fatone from season 4 and Pamela Anderson from season 10 are said to be some of them who nab the spots without going through the viewers' vote stage.
Pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently hinted that he would return to the "DWTS" ballroom in the next installment. "I can't wait to see who I'm going to get. I'm going to have a great time," he told Celebuzz. "This is going to be the first time we don't start from scratch but pick it up where you left off."
"The advantage is going to be with the couple that was on a recent season," the Ukraine-born dancer gushed. "If you're going to be paired with someone coming back from season 2, he or she is probably going to have a bit of a harder time getting back into it than someone who was on the last season."
Speaking of other pro dancers who will join the upcoming fifteenth season, he coyly said, "We have some new pros, [as] some old pros won't be coming back."
