Adam Rippon may be a professional figure skater, but he has shown over the last few months that he has a knack for marketing himself. The openly gay Olympian has been seen on almost every cable talk show imaginable, made a name for himself online, and seen multiple interviewers and fans asking him what he wants to do now that his Olympic run has ended.
Now, we know the answer. According to a report from Us Weekly, Rippon will be appearing on the upcoming all-athletes season of Dancing With the Stars: Athletes, along with Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, and former figure skater Tonya Harding.
Prior to being selected for the cast, Rippon has expressed his interest in the show: “If the opportunity came about I think it would be fun,” he told Us, but added that he’d need a strong dance partner. “Somebody who can keep up with my quick whips whoever that woman may be.”
The show has a history of athletes competing and performing well on the show — Olympic figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi won the competition back in season 6, while Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis took home the trophy in season 18.
The full cast of Dancing with the Stars: Athletes will be announced on Good Morning America on Friday, April 13.
