Lindsay Lohan We know who is going to compete in Dancing with the Stars this year, but who turned down the chance to dance for the Mirror Ball Trophy?
Lindsay Lohan reportedly turned down producers, even after several offers that maxed out at $550,000. She could probably use the money now.

Entertainment News reported that Lance Armstrong gets an invitation every season, and this year was no exception - especially after his high profile interview with Oprah.

Katherine Webb was a big target for the show, but Splash swooped in and got her to sign on first.

Eric Idle turned the show down, tweeting, "I just turned down ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ When they get to me have they become desperate?"

Bobby Flay revealed he liked to dance, but said he has no plans to do so on ABC.

David Cassidy wasn't a fan of reality TV when he was offered a spot. He changed his tune for Celebrity Apprentice, only to be fired the first week.

Tommy Lee had no second thoughts when he was solicited by ABC: "I've never hit the PASS button so quick."

Bill Clinton got an offer in 2011, but he was too busy to go through the training and competition.

Jason Alexander said he loved to dance, but that the reality side of the show was too personal for him to go through.

Jenny McCartney has turned down the show numerous times because the producers couldn't promise her she would be alongside big name stars. "They ask me every year, and I just can't do it. I tell them why: 'You guys keep saying every year you're going to get A-list people and then it's the girl that was with George Clooney (Elisabetta Canalis).'"
