Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Cast [RUMORS]: Paula Deen, Jon Gosselin, Chris Colfer, Will A Younger Cast Boost The Show?

Now that Kellie Pickler has swept season 16 of "Dancing With The Stars," what are some rumors on the cast of season 17?

As they say, controversy brings in the ratings, and perhaps no one needs a good public portrayal than Paula Deen right now. And indeed, the racist celebrity chef may just use "Dancing With The Stars" as her vehicle to get back her lost support and endorsements.

"The producers would love to have Paula join the cast of next season," says a source to Rob Shuter.

"They have a history of casting controversial people like Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin, if Paula says yes, you can add her to that list."

And speaking of Gosselin, Kate's former husband may follow in her footsteps for season 17 as a cast member.

According to The Stir, Jon believes season 17 of "Dancing With The Stars" will be a way to "reinvent himself," and he can also "kick Kate Gosselin's butt" while he's at it. With dance, of course.

But who does "Dancing With The Stars" co-host Brooke Burke want on the show, and what does she know of the upcoming cast?

"They're already in negotiations with the new cast. I haven't heard anyone yet, I imagine that it might be a younger cast. I don't know how they keep it so discreet," says Burke during a recent interview.

And as far as a younger cast, Burke wants Carly Rae Jepsen and Chris Colfer to join the cast!

"It's always nice to see the younger contestants come in."
