Prince Farming said yes to another ABC show.

Just when audiences across America thought they had to say goodbye to watching Prince Farming Chris Soules every Monday evening, Good Morning America enlightened fans on Tuesday with news that the Bachelor star will join the Dancing With the Stars season 20 celebrity cast.

GMA made the original celebrity cast announcement on Feb. 24, revealing 11 of 12 names for the anniversary show's roster. All names aside from pro dancer Witney Carson's partner were unveiled, leaving DWTS fans wondering who the mysterious man would be.

Tom Bergeron offered speculation about Soules when he "slipped" on GMA the morning of the celeb cast announcement, saying that Carson's partner "couldn't rose, I mean rise early enough." Carson also made eyebrows rise about Soules when she posted a photo on Instagram — appearing to be on a farm — from the day she met her partner: "Just moments away from meeting my new partner! Sooooo excited I can't even contain it."
