As the airing of "Dancing With The Stars" season 21 is set on Sept. 21, more rumors about its cast have been making headlines.

While many have been waiting for reports about 45-year-old actor and film director Ricky Schroder's nod to try snatching the glass trophy of the show, E! Online's latest report might just broke his fans' hearts.

According to the site, he has already declined the offer since he is not into dancing.

In an interview with former "Dancing With The Stars" champion Alfonso Ribeiro, it was learned that Deena Katz, one of the show's producers, asked him to refer some stars who can join the season 21 cast.

"The one that she wanted I couldn't get," the former "Spell-Mageddon" host divulged. "She wanted Ricky Shroder [sic] and Ricky Schroder was like, 'Eh, I don't dance!'"

Meanwhile, the name of "The Bachelorette" Kaitlyn Bristowe has been among the celebrity monikers that never leave the list of speculated members joining the next season of the ABC dancing reality show.

While talking to Wet Paint, "DWTS" professional performer Witney Carson was vocal in saying that the 30-year-old TV personality has her vote especially that Kaitlyn Bristowe was a dance instructor back in Canada, based on her "The Bachelorette" profile.

"I think she would be a good contestant!" the 21-year-old dance pro exclaimed when asked about the potential participant of the "Dancing With The Stars" season 21 cast. "She said she was a dancer, so I assume she has some coordination, so that would be good, and I think she has a great personality."

"We all know the show's not only about dancing, it's about how you connect with the audience, and I think she'd be really good for the show. She's relevant, she's fun, and she's coordinated. So I think she'd be great."

Do you think there is still a chance for the network to convince Ricky Schroder to be part of the "Dancing With The Stars" season 21 cast? How about Kaitlyn Bristowe, do you agree with Witney Carson's comments?
