While only two contestants have been announced, the new season of Dancing With the Stars
is already shaping up to be amazing!
Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza will be hitting the dance floor when season 21 kicks off next month.
The news was revealed on ESPN's SportsNation on Tuesday, where Victor sat down with the co-hosts to talk about his dancing skills.
He admits he has no dance skills and no rhythm, but depending on which pro dancer he gets partnered with, that could change really quickly.
In June, Victor rode the now-famous colt American Pharoah
into the history books when he won the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes -- a feat that hadn’t been achieved in 37 years.
The following month, Victor spoke to ET and the ESPY Awards
-- where American Pharoah was nominated for Best Championship Performance -- and the 43-year-old jockey shared his joy over the hard-earned Triple Crown victory.
"It was an incredible feeling," Victor told ET. "It's so hard to win this race. It's been so many years, so many incredible horses there [have] been so close to winning and finally I was the lucky one!"
Maybe the superstar jockey will be able to pull out a miraculous win on DWTS! It will be interesting to see how someone of Victor's diminutive stature will coalesce with the tall, statuesque DTWS pros.
Bindi -- daughter of the late Steve Irwin – revealed the news on Monday’s Good Morning America, where she joked, "The judges scare me more than crocodiles."
Two more contestants will be revealed on Entertainment Tonighton Thursday!
The remaining contestants will be revealed by ABC on Sept. 2, and the epic new season kicks off Sept. 14.
Check out the video below to hear more from Bindi
about her excitement about competing on the show.
