Playing Caitlyn Jenner Will Not Be Competing on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Cross one star off the list of potential competitors for next season of Dancing With the Stars. Despite speculation, Caitlyn Jenner will not be hitting the dance floor to compete for the mirror ball trophy.

"There is not nor have there ever been any negotiations on this matter," Jenner’s publicist told ET. "They inquired if she was interested in participating in the show and I said no thank you. That is the extent of the communication."

Back in June, DWTS pro Derek Hough, whose future with the show is up in the air, said he would definitely return to dance with Jenner.

"I'm up for any sort of challenge," Hough told ET at the time. "One thing I pride Dancing With the Stars on is taking chances and doing things that are a little out of the box, doing things that are inspiring and brave. For me, I say, 'Why not? Absolutely.'"

Former Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke also weighed in on Jenner’s DWTS potential.

"I think Caitlyn would be amazing on DWTS," Burke told ET last month. "The whole [Kardashian] family has basically done it. I danced with Rob. Kim did it a few seasons ago. Caitlyn and Tony Dovolani would look great together, or actually Caitlyn and Val [Chmerkovskiy]."

Fingers crossed that Jenner changes her mind!
