Sean LoweOhhhhhh! We probably shouldn't get our hopes up, but Wetpaint is reporting that Bachelor Sean Lowe WILL appear on Dancing With the Stars Season 16!

Yeah, yeah, I know he wasn't part of the DWTS cast announcement on Good Morning America yesterday -- but that doesn't mean he won't wind up being revealed as a last-minute addition to the show.

And supposedly Sean has even been paired with Peta Murgatroyd as his pro partner, which must mean he's definitely on the Season 16 cast list. Did anyone else think it was strange that she was absent from yesterday's GMA festivities?

At first I thought it had something to do with her breakup with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but considering Maks isn't returning to DWTS, it makes perfect sense for Peta to participate in the new season.

Reality Steve thinks ABC is holding off on announcing Sean as a cast member until the Bachelor finale airs on March 11. And considering the premiere of DWTS is on March 18, hopefully we'll hear something fairly soon after Sean puts a ring on his chosen lady's finger.

And I highly doubt I'm the only one who has her fingers and toes crossed that Sean really is part of the new cast, because the rest of the bunch really isn't all that exciting. There, I said it. I was a bit disappointed when the Season 16 cast was revealed. And I was really, really bummed out that no Bachelor or Bachelorette stars made the cut -- and that's why Sean just has to ride into the ballroom on a white horse and save the day! (Well, not literally, but you know what I mean.)

OMG. If this doesn't turn out to be true, I'm not going to be a happy camper.

Stay tuned.

Are you hoping Sean will be announced as a DWTS cast member?
