"Dancing With the Stars" is set to announce its list of celebrity contestants on Monday night during an episode of ABC’s "Bachelor Pad."

After the cast members of the upcoming season are disclosed, a list will be posted on ABC’s website, according to Broadway World.

Among the prospective dancers that could be announced are Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaksa Governor Sarah Palin, former Baywatch and Night Rider star David Hasselhoff, former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Kurt Warner, and former NBA Champion Rick Fox.

ABC has not confirmed that any of the aforementioned celebrities will be on the show.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke, celebrities perform dance moves and are judged by Ballroom judge Len Goodman and other judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

In the meantime, viewers can vote for the best dance teams via phone or ABC’s website as they are revealed on Monday night. AT&T customers can text “VOTE” with a number that relates to each dance team.

Like American Idol, Dancing with the Stars has become a juggernaut in terms of TV ratings. The show is based on the international show “Strictly Come Dancing,” which also became extraordinarily popular.
