Watch: Caitlyn Jenner Joining "Dancing With the Stars"?

It's almost fall, so you know what that means: It's time to speculate on who's joining the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars! And we can already cross one major name off the list of possible stars. 

When E! News' Kristin Dos Santos chatted with former champ Alfonso Ribeiro, who is taking over for Tom Bergeron as the new host of America's Funniest Home Videos, he revealed that he's in the inner circle when it comes to DWTS casting decisions. So we had to know if season 21 will feature a battle of the 'Lyns: The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe vs. I Am Cait's Caitlyn Jenner?

While Kaitlyn told E! News she thinks it would be "fun" to do and two of Caitlyn's family members, Kim Kardashian and Rob Kardashian, have competed in previous seasons, Ribeiro shot down the idea. 

"I don't think that's going to happen," he told us, adding that he's "heard" that Caitlyn is "not going to do it."

But Ribeiro wasn't done spilling juicy DWTS casting deets, as he said that one of the show's producers Deena Katz has "called and asked me about a few people."

Wait, like who?!

"The one that she wanted I couldn't get," he spilled. "She wanted Ricky Shroder and Ricky Schroder was like, 'Eh, I don't dance!'"

Consider our childhood dreams crushed. 

DWTS returns Monday, Sept. 21 on ABC.
