Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles and chain-clad wrestler Mr. T will compete in Season 24 of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC, according to ET Online.
Biles was a huge supporter of fellow Fab Fiver Laurie Hernandez while “the human emoji” was on “DWTS” last season so it was only a matter of time before Biles made her debut.
Mr. T, whose real name is Laurence Tureaud, was apparently a white whale for the show.
“Production has been trying to get Mr. T to do the show for years!” a source close to the show’s production told ET Online. “He will be a great contestant this season.”
Nick Viall of “The Bachelor” is rumored to be on the upcoming season, but ABC indicated to The Huffington Post that they “do not confirm or comment on casting rumors.”
The new season of “DWTS” premieres on March 20 on ABC.
