Charlotte McKinney, the model known for her sexy appearance the Carl's Jr. ad aired during this year's Super Bowl, is headed to the 20th season of Dancing With the Stars. The list of this season's cast members was announced earlier on Tuesday during the Good Morning America broadcast.

Charlotte McKinney has made a name for herself in the modeling world. She dropped out of high school at the age of 17 because of bullying, and also had learning challenges because of dyslexia. There is likely no one making fun of the famous model now.

McKinney claims she had to eat eight burgers while making the Carl's Jr. ad for the Super Bowl, and jokes that appearing on Dancing With the Stars will allow her to work off the weight she gained.

Also competing on season 20, which is the show's 10th year anniversary, are singer Patti LaBelle, actress Suzanne Somers, Robert Herjavec of Shark Tank, singer/rapper Redfoo, actress Rumer Willis, former Glee actor and singer Riker Lynch, Hunger Games actress Willow Shields, Army veteran Noah Galloway, and the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL, Michael Sam.

Charlotte McKinney is paired with dance pro Keo Motsepe for her run on Dancing With the Stars. She will no doubt give some of these other competitors quite a run--at least in the beauty department.

If the Carl's Jr. ad made Charlotte McKinney famous during the Super Bowl, perhaps DWTS will simply add to her fame. And if the girl can dance, then she'll surely up her fan base during her time on the show.
