Is the secret out? Us Weekly magazine reports that “The Bachelor” Chris Soules will compete on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Sources tell the mag that Iowa farmer Soules is the 12th contestant whose name wasn’t revealed last week when the cast of the upcoming season was announced.
If true, Soules will dance with pro Witney Carson, who won the competition last season with Alfonso Ribeiro.
Other celebrities named last week to the new cast include Michael Sam, Patti LaBelle, Suzanne Somers, Rumer Willis and model Charlotte McKinney.
“DWTS” host Tom Bergeron might have given a clue to Soules’ participation when he said that Carson’s partner was absent from the big reveal of the cast because he “couldn’t rose – I mean rise so early to be here.”
A source told US Weekly that Soules has been meeting with “DWTS” producers in recent weeks.
Season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars” premieres March 16. But first, Soules will dole out his final rose on Monday on “The Bachelor” finale.
