The full cast of Dancing With the Stars Season 18 will be announced in just a few hours.

While there is tremendous buzz over who will be part of the latest season's cast, there's also buzz over celebrities who will not be part of the upcoming reality show.

One celebrity who is reportedly not on the wish list of Dancing With the Stars Season 18 makers is Juan Pablo Galavis. The current Bachelor landed himself in hot soup recently with his anti-gay comments and hence is not even being considered for the latest installment of the series, reports Enstars.

"He's just too risky," a source close to the show told E! Online. "There's too much negativity at this point."

Pablo caused controversy after saying that he did not think a gay Bachelor would be a good idea.

Meanwhile, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson recently told Access Hollywood that he turned down an offer to compete on Dancing With the Stars:

"I need to focus on my football career right now. It's one of those things where I'm trying to do as much as I can winning football games for the Seattle Seahawks and our franchise," Wilson said.

The quarterback, however, is not ruling out the possibility of featuring in a future season of the show when he would be ready to compete.

"At some point, I'm going to definitely do it. I love Dancing with the Stars. I love watching, and I love dancing myself, so hopefully, I could win it," he said.

The official announcement of the Dancing With the Stars season 18 cast will be made on Tuesday, 4 March, on Good Morning America. Click here to watch online.

The show premieres Monday, 17 March, at 8pm on ABC.
