NEW YORK (AP) - What do you do after winning viewers' hearts as "The Bachelor"? If you're Sean Lowe, you put on your dancing shoes.
ABC says Lowe is headed to "Dancing with the Stars." He steps up fresh from his engagement to Catherine Giudici at the conclusion of the recent season of "The Bachelor."
A Dallas businessman, Lowe will be competing for the disco-ball trophy when "Dancing with the Stars" returns for its 16th season Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC. He will partner with Peta Murgatroyd.
Previously announced rivals include actor-comic D.L. Hughley, Baltimore Ravens football player Jacoby Jones and former "American Idol" contestant Kellie Pickler.
"Dancing with the Stars" is hosted by Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvat.
