The cast for the new season of Dancing with the Stars is set, topped by David Hasselhoff, Bristol Palin and Jersey Shore star the Situation.

 

But what’s even more interesting is who said no to the reality show.

 

Sylvester Stallone, Richard Branson, Joel McHale and Condoleezza Rice were all offered spots but passed, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

 

“People say no for a variety of reasons,” executive producer Conrad Green says.


“Some people like the show but think they suck at dancing. It’s a lot easier to say no than it is to say yes.”
