From the farm to the stage! Chris Soules is trading in his work boots for dance shoes, as he prepares to hit the dance floor on the 20th season of Dancing With the Stars!
The Bachelor star is the show’s 12th contestant, People confirmed. When DWTS announced the new cast, Witney Carson was left without a partner. Many assumed Prince Farming would team up with the reigning champion when she posted a selfie in what looks like Iowa with the caption, “Just moments away from meeting my new partner!”
DWTS host Tom Bergeron also hinted that Chris would join the show. He said on Good Morning America, “He couldn’t rose, I mean rise early enough.”
Chris is just one of the many Bachelor stars to join the show following their quest for love. Sean Lowe, Jake Pavelka and Melissa Rycroft all competed for a mirror-ball trophy.
But could Chris’ latest venture cause trouble in paradise with his bride-to-be, either Whitney Bischoff or Becca Tilley? “It’s the ultimate betrayal,” a source told In Touch. “Not only does the winner have to start a new life, but she has to watch her fiancé go straight into the arms of another woman.”
