‘The Bachelor’ Chris Soules to join ‘Dancing with the Stars’ as final cast member – Report
This has been a rumor among DWTS fans for a while now and US Weekly confirmed the news on Wednesday.
This partnership makes sense on many levels:
For one, Witney Carson was announced as one of the pros this season. However, when the celebrity partners were announced, she was not part of the lineup. Tom Bergeron just said: “Her partner couldn’t rose — I mean rise so early to be here.”
Secondly, popular The Bachelor cast members usually end up on Dancing with the Stars to help with ratings. Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka and Sean Lowe all appeared on the show immediately after their Bachelor season.
The one issue though is: Will Chris Soules and Witney Carson have enough time to practice before the season premiere? DWTS starts one week after the final rose is given on The Bachelor on March 9. Perhaps Chris already knows how to dance.
ABC has made no comment on the news, telling The Wrap: “We do not comment on casting rumors, thanks.”
Personally, I think it’s going to happen. Who else could it be? Maks?
