List Rules Vote up the individuals who should be contestants on the next season of Dancing with the Stars‎. Only add celebrities who have not been contestants on the show before.

Some actors and actresses are obvious triple-threats and some are not, but it's always interesting to see which stars can bust out the moves. This list of celebrities we would love to see compete on Dancing with the Stars contains both known terrible dancers and celebs who already know their way around a dance floor. Watching stars learn to dance and seeing dancing celebrities have a chance to shine are equally enjoyable.

What celebs would make great DWTS contestants? Lindsey Vonn would have to be near the top. The series loves a recently retired Olympian and Vonn's dedication to excellence will surely drive her deep into the competition. Ronda Rousey and Tiger Woods are other athletes who would be great on Dancing with the Stars.

Tony Danza is an accomplished tap dancer and it would be entertaining to watch him perform other styles of dance. Other enjoyable choices for DWTS contestants include Charlie Sheen, Jenny McCarthy, and Mark Hamill.

Who do you want to see two-step on up to Dancing with the Stars? Vote the best should-be contestants up to the top of this list and please add any good options we may have missed.
