Dancing with the Stars‘ season 15 is just around the corner, and we realize you all want to know if Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte will be fulfilling his wish of appearing on the celebrity reality show. Well, the quick answer to that is, not this year. But with the official casting announcement for the upcoming season announced Monday morning on ‘Good Morning America,’ there will definitely be some familiar faces in the mix.

For starters, ABC is bringing back such ‘DWTS’ all-stars as Kirstie Alley, failed boyband member Drew Lachey and that controversial reality show star with the bad-mouthing toddler Bristol Palin to mingle with new cast members, like retired footballer Emmit Smith and that random guy in the ‘Sex and the City’ movie that everyone forgot about Gilles Marini.

Check out the casting list below:

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Pamela Anderson and Tristan McManus
Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower
Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough
Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd
Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke

Though only 12 pairs were announced, a 13th duo will be announced later on, but it’s up to ‘DWTS’ fans to go online and vote for who it should be. As of right now it looks like fashion commentator Carson Kressley, singer Sabrina Bryan and Disney Channel star Kyle Massey are the top three hopefuls battling for that spot. The winner will be announced on Monday, August 27, on ‘Good Morning America.’
