Dancing With the Stars
Who is rumored to be participating in an all-athletes edition of "Dancing With the Stars?" ABC

"Dancing With the Stars" is breaking with tradition for the season that will be airing this Spring, instead focusing on a shortened episode count with all athlete performers. However, despite things not being quite the same this time around, here has still been plenty of speculation over who may or may not participate in the newest episodes.

While some have already confirmed that they have no plans of doing the show, others haven't spoken out about the rumors they're planning to join up. Here's a rundown of everyone who has so far been floated as a potential participant:

Caitlyn Jenner:

The reality star, formerly known as Olympian Bruce Jenner, was rumored to be a top contender by ABC after The National Enquirer reported that the network was heavily trying to recruit her.

"Jenner is one of the most celebrated athletes of all time and will bring drama and glamour to the ballroom. She is the producers' number one choice," the report said.

However, Gossip Cop has slammed the report as inaccurate, stating that sources close to Jenner have not only refuted claims she's been approached by ABC, but also that she'd consider doing the show if approached anyway.

Kobe Bryant:

Shortly after the Season 25 finale, competitor Derek Fisher caused a stir when he indicated that producers should reach out to former NBA great Kobe Bryant, saying he and his family were "big fans of the show," so it would be worth reaching out to him.

Bryant hasn't responded to the rumors.

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick would be a huge get for the show since he was the football player who set off the chain of protests by NFL players against the injustices men of color have often faced at the hands of police—a protest which later caused controversy after President Trump criticized players for kneeling during the National Anthem. Hollywood Life indicated he was being considered, but he has not spoken out about the rumors yet.

In the same article about Kaepernick, Hollywood Life also indicated that Dale Earnhardt Jr. Would give it a whirl on the dance floor as well, citing that he has been wanted for years, and now that he's retiring from racing, it would be the perfect time.

However he quickly took to social media to dispel the rumors, sharing a meme that indicated he would "never" consider doing the show.

The all-athletes edition of "Dancing With the Stars" is expected to air sometime in March 2018.
