Soules, 33, is joining Season 20 of Dancing with the Stars, People reports. ABC would not comment on the casting rumors, but it's likely that Soules will be officially announced as the 12th celebrity on Good Morning America next week, after the Bachelor finale airs Monday.
Soules will be partnered with Season 19 champ Witney Carson. Dancing host Tom Bergeron hinted at Soules' participation during the cast announcement on GMA last week, when he said of Carson's mystery partner: "Her partner couldn't rose — I mean, rise so early to be here."
Carson may have her work cut out for her. Last month, Bachelor host Chris Harrison told TVGuide.com of Soules: "I don't see a connection between Chris and rhythm. He is the worst singer, dancer, rapper - he's so horrible."
The Season 20 cast - which also includes Rumer Willis and Patti LaBelle - was announced last Tuesday, with hosts Bergeron and Dancing co-host Erin Andrews saying that one additional celeb would be revealed at a later date. Soules will follow in the footsteps of fellow Bachelor alums Sean Lowe, Jake Pavelka and Melissa Rycroft, who have competed on Dancing.
The Bachelor finale airs Monday at 8/7c on ABC. Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, March 16 at 8/7c on ABC.
