ABC will reportedly announce a twelfth "mystery" celebrity at a later date -- prompting speculation it will be The Bachelor star Sean Lowe, whom TMZ had reported would be part of Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth-season cast (along with Judd, Pickler and Raisman) this past weekend.
Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth season will premiere Monday, March 18 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC -- one week after the finale of Lowe's currently-airing The Bachelor edition airs in the same time period on March 11.
In addition to Judd, Pickler and Raisman, the participation of Dick and Ortiz had also leaked out prior to ABC's official announcement. The network also announced Jones' participation during Sunday night's broadcast of the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Eight of the eleven celebrities will be paired with returning professional dancers while three will work with first-time pro partners.
Pickler will compete with Derek Hough, who will be participating in his eleventh Dancing with the Stars edition and is the show's only three-time professional champion, and Raisman will be paired with Mark Ballas, who is returning for his twelfth season and has two mirror-ball trophies of his own.
Vanderpump will be paired with Gleb Savchenko, the season's only first-time male professional partner.
"Not my choice... Sometimes we take breaks, seasons off," she told TMZ this weekend.
