Before the honeymoon comes a trip to the ballroom.
Choosing between his final two in The Bachelor's March 14 finale isn't the only major decision Ben Higgins has coming up in his life. Aside from the big Lauren B. vs. JoJo dilemma, it sounds like Ben needs to decide if he wants to compete on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars, which premieres March 21 on ABC.
"I'm not against any opportunity that presents itself," Ben told E! News' Will Marfuggi about joining the cast of DWTS when we caught up with him at the Women Tell All special. "I need to analyze if that option was there to say, OK, is this the best thing for me?" I don't know yet, I don't. I don't want to say this is the way I'm going to go with it because I haven't decided."
So wait, does that mean he's already been offered a spot in the ballroom? ABC doesn't comment on casting rumors, so we won't know for sure until the cast is officially unveiled on March 8 on Good Morning America.
But Ben wouldn't be the first franchise alum to turn in the roses for a pair of dancing shoes: Chris Soules competed in season 20, while Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka have also appeared on the show. Former Bachelorette Trista Sutter and The Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft also competed on DWTS, with Rycroft even winning the All-Stars season.
So far, season 22's only official cast member is Fuller House's Jodie Sweetin, who will be dancing with Keo Motsepe. And sources tell E! News that America's Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco and Good Morning America's Ginger Zee will also be part of the cast. Two people fans won't be seeing this season? Fan-favorite pro and reigning champ Derek Hough, who is taking a break during the Spring cycle to star in Singin' in the Rain on Broadway, and judge Julianne Hough, with head judge Len Goodman set to return.
Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 21 on ABC, with the cast being officially announced on March 8 on Good Morning America.
