Dancing With the Stars has announced the mystery contestant who wasn't divulged last week when the remainder of the upcoming season's cast was listed. It seems that shortly after The Bachelor's Chris Soules hands out that final red rose, he'll be putting on his dancing shoes.

That's right. Chris Soules is joining the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. He will be paired up with Witney Carson as his dance pro partner. And there won't be any making out with her on the Dancing With the Stars set. It's not that kind of show. Witney Carson danced with Alfonso Ribeiro--all the way to that coveted mirror ball trophy--during season 19.

A source explained to Us Weekly that Chris Soules has been meeting with DWTS producers for a few weeks now so he will understand exactly what is expected of him on the show. It seems he even called another Bachelor who has appeared on Dancing With the Stars--Sean Lowe--to ask him some questions about the competition.

"He seems like he’s not totally sure what he’s getting himself into! It will be fascinating to see how well he does," the source said.

In addition to Sean Lowe and Chris Soules, other Dancing With the Stars contestants from the Bachelor or Bachelorette franchise include Bachelor Jake Pavelka, Bachelorette Trista Sutter, and Bachelor 13 castoff Melissa Rycroft.

Dancing With the Stars premieres its 20th season on March 16th at 8:00 PM ET. Will you be tuning in to see Bachelor Chris Soules take his first spin around the ballroom?
