'Dancing With the Stars'

Casts First Former 'Idol'

Contestant Ever!

EXCLUSIVE

0224_dwts_02The two biggest reality shows on the planet are about to come together -- TMZ has learned the identity of four of the contestants for this season of "Dancing With the Stars" ... including the first ever former "American Idol" wannabe.

"DWTS" has not revealed their cast for the upcoming season yet ... but sources close to the show tell TMZ that Kellie Pickler -- everyone's favorite country bumpkin from season five of "Idol" -- will be doing this season of "DWTS."

In addition to Pickler, our sources say country star Wynonna Judd, "Bachelor" star Sean Lowe and 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Aly Raisman are among this year's cast.

Not that TMZ condones gambling, but put $20 down on Raisman -- three former Olympians have won the show in the past. You're welcome.

A rep for the show tells TMZ, "We do not comment on casting rumors, but tune in to 'GMA' on Tuesday when we reveal the cast live!"

No wonder Maksim left! He's more famous than half of them. No one worth tuning in for.

Oh no! It's starting! I'm watching the bachelor this season, and Sean is turning into Jake Pavelka, an attention whore!

Just wondering, who is the woman on the far right with the red lipstick? I can seem to recall her face.

Very, very torn between supporting Pickler, or Raisman. 'Much admiration for both. In general, loyalty for this "Dancing" will be brutal.

I have absolutely no interest in what Wynonna Judd has to say about anything. Oh, wait a sec, I don't watch this stoopid show anyway!
