Now that Chris Soules has found love on The Bachelor with Whitney Bischoff, he’s focusing his attention on a new challenge: dancing.

It was formally announced on Good Morning America on March 10, that Soules would be joining the cast of this season’s Dancing With the Stars. We’ve already announced the rest of the roster, which includes Rumer Willis, Patti LaBelle, and Michael Sam.

“Instead of moving to Arlington, [Iowa], we are going to be moving to LA for a couple of weeks at least to be on ‘Dancing With the Stars,'” Soules announced live on Good Morning America.

Coincidentally, Soules will be paired with another Whitney – reigning Mirrorball champion Whitney Carson, who danced to a win last season with Alfonso Ribeiro.

The 10th anniversary season of Dancing With the Stars is being billed as the biggest ever. Producers will bring back Disney and Latin theme nights and introduce a new Spring Break special night. Another new element is the addition of all-access cameras in the rehearsal studios, which will be made available on a live stream.

Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars premieres on Monday, March 16, at 8pm (ET) on ABC.
