|"Bachelor" Chris Soules and Dancing Star Whitney Carson (ABC)|
The 10th anniversary of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (and its 20th season!) debuts next Monday, March 16 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. and after much teasing, the final celebrity contestant has been announced. It is none other than this year’s Bachelor Chris Soules. (Was that worth waiting for? I think not.) He will be paired with last season’s pro champ, the adorable Whitney Carson who helped lead Alfonso Ribeiro to victory.
As always, this season will be hosted by Tom Bergeron and is joined again by Erin Andrews as well as ballroom judges Len Goodman, two-time Mirrorball champ and actress Julianne Hough, and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. Fans of show will have more access to the that is necessary with six live stream videos of the ballroom at different angles as well as live streaming videos at the DWTS rehearsal studio at ABC.com.
As always, this season’s star line-up is a mix of movie stars, sport figures, pop culture icons and over-hyped bachelors. Here are this season’s dancing pairs:
