Last night no one was more surprised than Penn Jillette that he would be the newest star to dance his way into America’s hearts.

 

Last night we got Penn’s reaction to the news. He told OK!, "I’m as speechless as Teller that America wants to see a magical sasquatch dance. When I found out I was doing the show I started eating better and really working on this."

 

He added, "I’ve lost 47 pounds since signing up for the show." 

 

You can catch Penn, along with the other stars, when Dancing With the Stars premieres March 17 on ABC.
