Nick Viall may have an answer about what he’ll do after his time as “The Bachelor” ends March 13. He is no stranger to ABC cameras, as he was the runner-up on seasons 10 and 11 of The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise and current season 21 of The Bachelor.
Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss confirmed via Twitter that The Bachelor‘s lead is joining season 24 of Dancing with the Stars soon after their show’s finale.

“I am happy to announce that @viallnicholas28 will be doing some dancing in the near future!!! #TheBachelor“
Viall is the franchise’s first lead to do DWTS since Chris Soules in 2015.
PEOPLE previously confirmed that Glee star Heather Morris, Olympic medalist Simone Biles, former A-Team star Mr. T and Fifth Harmony‘s Normani Kordei will also be joining the cast.
ABC hasn’t commented on casting rumors, and the full cast list will be revealed on Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 1.
In a January interview with Entertainment Tonight, Nick said he thought the show would be fun.
“Who wouldn’t want to do it?”
“Right now I am focused on being ‘The Bachelor,'” he said in the interview. “[But] if they asked — I mean, I don’t think I would say my first thought wouldn’t be no, but I think anyone would feel lucky to even be considered.” he said then.
