I just hope there's at least one juicy judge vs. pro fight this season.

It’s almost time for Len Goodman to break out his 10 paddle! (Or at least the 5.) The cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 12 will be announced on Monday during Episode 9 of The Bachelor.

DWTS Season 12 will hold its two-hour premiere from 8 to 10 p.m. on Monday, March 21, a week after The Bachelor finale. The first Results Show will air from 9 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29.

It won't happen, but it should. She'd be much better as a DWTS contestant than The Bachelorette. And the DWTS audience would LOVE her.

Pretty much everyone on the planet has been rumored to be in the cast this season, so check for your own name in this gallery of possible DWTS stars and return to Wetpaint’s DWTS site on Monday night for the actual list of contestants.

Will Christine O’Donnell be the new Kate Gosselin/Bristol Palin? Will the world end if that happens? What if she’s actually a good dancer?

And Bachelor spoiler fans, whaddya think about this wild theory: What if Emily Maynard dances this season?

Think about it.

She turned down The Bachelorette and it could just be because she was away from Ricki for so long, but it could be because she decided to do DWTS instead.

*** FEB 26 UPDATE ***

Is Emily not the Bachelorette because Brad actually picked her in the end? FORT says Steve got it wrong (again) and Brad is engaged to Emily, not Chantal. Emily is actually a much better match for Brad, since they are both vanilla bland. Michelle Money called them Ken & Barbie and I think that’s the truth. Maybe Brad & Emily should dance together?

*** END UPDATE ***

It’s probably not the case, but it’s my favorite wild theory of the day. Besides, she’s gorgeous and she’d be great paired with … Maks? she’s so sweet, he’d have to keep his temper around her.

I'm not feeling it.

Is Maks even coming back, or is he still busy being the Ukrainian Bachelor? If Maks doesn’t come back, and Derek Hough is still gone, who will we stare at?

By the way, I’m not into the Ashley Hebert idea. At all. She’s, like, 10th on my list of good Bachelorettes. Michelle Money is still #1. Then Shawntel Newton, Madison “fang girl” Garton, Gia Allemand, Jackie Gordon, Jillian Harris 2.0 … I’ll think of more…
