The new cast of Dancing With the Stars, which premieres next month, features some interesting choices as the ABC reality hit looks to liven things up.

As rumored Monday, NFL star Jacoby Jones will vie for the Mirror Ball, as will Olympian Aly Raisman (below). Her dad is totally gonna stand the whole time.

Notably absent? Rumored contestant Sean Lowe of The Bachelor fame.

But with a 12th contestant TBA, and two weeks of Bachelor left (read The Bachelor spoilers to see how it plays out), we're guessing he's the final entrant.

If he does lace up his dancing shoes, it'll be a reality TV bonanza. Lisa Vanderpump (RHOBH) and Kellie Pickler (Idol) are also gonna be competing!

Who else will take to the parquet March 18? Here's the list of 11 celebs going Dancing With the Stars, as unveiled Tuesday on Good Morning America ...

Kellie Pickler has shaved her head for the most important of causes: to show solidarity with good friend Summer Holt Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in June.

Was she afraid to take this step? Does she have any regrets? The former American Idol favorite opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on the latter's talk show Friday.

"It's just hair!" Pickler said. "I will be honest with you, I was a little nervous and she was too. [We thought], 'I hope we don't have some crazy birthmark or wart or mole or something... but we had fun."

Pickler, who lost her grandmother to this disease, said she simply wanted to be there through chemotherapy with Miller.

"I think it's important to have a cancer buddy," Pickler said the experience, adding that her pal is "doing good" despite the obvious difficulties:

"It's hard on your body, it's hard on your mind. It's not an easy thing to go through. But she's a strong woman and she's handled it with such grace."

On the cover of Maxim last month, Kellie Pickler lent her body to a very important cause: the U.S. military.

"Cancer does not discriminate," says Pickler in a statement on her Facebook page, while Miller adds: "If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it."

You can watch a video documenting Kellie and Summer's experience on the official Athena® Water’s website. That company will also be making a monetary contribution in Miller's name to the American Cancer Society.

Kellie Picker covers the latest issue of Maxim.

But the former American Idol contestant has goals in mind that include a lot more than merely showing skin: she's espousing the virtues of the USO and hoping others get involved in assisting our military.

"I come from a military family," says Pickler, who has traveled abroad with the USO five times. "My grandfather is a retired Marine, and I've always had a great deal of respect for anyone who serves our country. It really does take someone special to sacrifice everything. I don't mean just their lives, either. There are men who are sacrificing the chance to hold their newborn baby!"

She may not have walked away with any trophies at last night's CMT Awards, but Taylor Swift did receive a lot of buzz at the event.

That's because the young singer showed up on the red carpet without her signature curls. She got her locks straightened out for the ceremony, which didn't sit well with another artist.

Indeed, Kellie Pickler has challenged Taylor to a Fashion Face-Off. She's clearly displeased that Swift tried to upstage her on the red carpet and is asking readers to settle this battle of blonde beauties once and for all.

Are you up for it? Good luck!!!

Who looked prettier at the CMT Awards?
