The full cast of Dancing with the Stars season 24 will be revealed Wednesday, but thanks to various spoilers and leaks, we now have 11 of the 12 names who will be competing. The latest batch of spoilers includes a Glee star, a professional bull rider and an NFL player.
According to People, Glee‘s Heather Morris, Spanish personality Charo and professional bull rider Bonner Bolton will participate in DWTS season 24. Additionally, E!Online reports that this season’s NFL player will be Rashad Jennings, most recently of the New York Giants.
Morris is best known for playing Brittany on the FOX series Glee, just like past winner Amber Riley. In addition, she has an extensive dance background, even advancing to the Vegas round of So You Think You Can Dance season 2.

Charo is 65 and was essentially the 1970s version of Sofia Vergara. Bolton is undoubtedly going to be the “star” most people have never heard of, but seeing as how the last bull-riding cowboy made it to fourth place (Ty Murray), maybe he’ll surprise us.

As a summary, here’s the current list of 11 stars we know will be on Dancing with the Stars season 24 so far:
-Olympic gymnast Simone Biles
-Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan
–Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Erika Jayne
-Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei
-Glee star Heather Morris
-Spanish comedienne Charo
–The A-Team star Mr. T
–Saturday Night Live alum Chris Kattan
–The Bachelor Nick Viall
-NFL player Rashad Jennings
-Professional bull rider Bonner Bolton
That only leaves one spot left for a male star. No matter who that is, it seems as though the women have a huge advantage this season. Heather Morris is perhaps as big of a ringer as this show has ever seen, Simone Biles is a virtual lock to win and Nancy Kerrigan may be older, but she was a figure skater and America’s sweetheart.
Dancing with the Stars will reveal the full cast Wednesday, March 1 on Good Morning America and the competition begins Monday, March 20 at 8/7c on ABC.
