Nick Carter is the latest addition to the new cast of ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ Season 21, after four years in a row of offers from the DWTS crew. According to US Weekly he says, “I’m excited!”
Here’s the funny part…you’ll never guess who got Nick to sign up for the show: it was former NSYNCer, Joey Fatone, who participated in Seasons 4 and 15. HA!
Nick said, “He [Joey] talks about it all the time and I was really debating if I wanted to do it, and he said, ‘It’s a great experience, it keeps you in shape and it’ll teach you a lot of stuff. He said, ‘You’ll get what you put into it.’ And I’m a hard worker, so I think it’ll be fun.”
Nick’s younger brother Aaron Carter was also on the show previously, and finished in fifth place with partner Karina Smirnoff during Season 9.
Nick joins previously announced celebs Bindi Irwin and triple crown jockey Victor Espinoza. Find out the rest of the cast when the celebs and their partners are revealed Sept. 2 on Good Morning America.
Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 14 at 7p on ABC.
