Former NFL Pro Terrell Owens Joins Dancing With The Stars

Meet the latest celebrity to compete on Dancing With the Stars!

On Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017, Good Morning America announced that former San Francisco 49ers player Terrell Owens, also known as T.O., has joined the dancing competition for the show's 25th season. And his dancing pro partner is none other than Cheryl Burke, who already has two mirror ball trophies to her name.

"I'm hoping to put up some big numbers with this lovely lady right here," Owens, 43, told GMA hosts, pointing toward his new partner.

The two have apparently already gotten started with their training. "We [practiced] a few hours the other day," Burke explained. "I have to say, he's got some rhythm. We just, you know, gotta start from the beginning because he's never danced before."

The 33-year-old Dance Moms instructor continued, "He's all about lights camera action. He's a performer, so I'm definitely going to use that to our advantage."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Property Brothers star Drew Scott was the first celebrity announced for the new season of DWTS. He'll be competing with the previous season's winner, Emma Slater.

Malcolm in the Middle's Frankie Muniz and Disney Channel star Jordan Fisher have also been confirmed as part of the cast of the 25th season.

DWTS returns Monday, Sept. 18 on ABC.
