Dancing With The Stars Cast
The new "Dancing with the Stars" cast could have its hardest bodies yet -- a bunch of pro athletes and an Olympian -- along with something new ... a YouTube superstar, TMZ has learned. 

We got a hold of the 'DWTS' producers wish list -- the celebs they're gunning to get for Season 19 -- and it includes 'Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman, ex-UFC fighter Randy Couture, "American Ninja Warrior" contestant Kacy Catanzaro, Olympic track star Lolo Jones and Antonio Sabato Jr.

Our 'DWTS' sources tell us they're also trying to land a female YouTube star ... who we're told has tens of millions of followers. It's a smart ploy for a veteran show with aging viewers to pull in fresh, younger viewers.

We're told some of the celebs are already negotiating their 'DWTS' contracts. The one thing still missing though ... a really big traditional TV or movie star. The full cast will be announced Sept. 4.

They're going up against Gotham this year and that show will take a lot of the younger viewers away. Hopefully this will be the last season of this played out idea. They haven't had a real star on the show for years now.

Being on a reality show or posting a u-tube video does not make you a "star". They should just rename the show "Dancing".

There is one YouTube "celebrity" couple I really like. They are hilarious. Jesse and jeana. It's Prank vs Prank on YouTube I think. They have one video that has over 20 million views. So that's closer to "star" status than some of the reality "stars"
