When the Dancing With The Stars 2016 cast is officially revealed during the Aug. 30 episode of Good Morning America, will gymnast Simone Biles --who scored a whopping five medals at the Rio Olympics earlier this month-- be part of the lineup? The 19-year old athlete, who is widely regarded as the greatest gymnast of all-time, confirmed her DWTS season 23 cast status during an interview posted to WWD on Aug. 19.

Simone Biles won't do DWTS... yet

When directly asked if she'd strap on her shoes as a part of the Dancing with the Stars fall 2016 cast, Biles offered up a definitive response, replying that though she'd "really love to," her schedule is "really busy." She did, however, leave the door open for a future go at the Mirrorball Trophy by adding "I would love to do the spring season if they would let me."

Also not dancing, according to Hollywood Life, is Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. Per the report, he was likely to join the season 23 cast, but was dropped from consideration in light of his recent and well-publicized drama in Rio.

So who will be part of the Dancing with the Stars 2016 cast?

Biles may have removed herself from consideration, but a handful of other celebrities are game to go for glory in the ballroom, according to reports. An Aug. 19 Hollywood Life article cited an unnamed "insider" who claimed that a trio of stars have agreed to be part of the DWTS 2016 lineup. So who's allegedly joining up? The list includes recent Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, General Hospital actress Emma Samms, and Disney star Jake T. Austin. ABC does not comment on casting rumors.
