Rumors are fun — and sometimes more exciting than reality — but at some point we do need to know who we’ll be watching on Dancing With the Stars Season 14.

The spring 2012 season starts on Monday, March 19 and at this point no date has been announced for the big cast reveal. But we can speculate, and the best guess at this point is Monday, February 27. Last spring’s Season 12 cast was announced on Feb. 28 during The Bachelor and it sounds about right for DWTS co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet to give us the Season 14 names, a few at a time, during the Feb. 27 episode of Bachelor Ben Flajnik’s season.

How about the celeb/pro pairings? They are often announced Wednesday on Good Morning America, two days after the cast announcement. Will they do the same this year? Maybe, maybe not. But right now it’s a safe bet to expect to hear the names of the new cast either on or before Feb. 27, with the pro pairings revealed a couple of days later. The pros usually tweet good or bad news at some point before the February announcements, letting fans know whether they have been officially tapped to return or not, without revealing their celebrity partners.

Check back here for official updates as to when the cast will finally be announced.
