The cast of the upcoming 13th season of “Dancing with the Stars” is expected to — unsurprisingly — have its share of reality star contestants, with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Rob Kardashian likely leading the pack.

According to Us Weekly, both the pint-sized “Jersey Shore” star and the lone brother on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” are in talks with ABC to compete during the new season, which premieres Sept. 19.

“Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” a source told the magazine.

Rumor has it that Mike Tyson and singer Christina Milian also are being considered for the show.
