It's official. 'The Bachelor' himself Chris Soules will be sashaying for the mirror ball trophy on the new season of 'Dancing with the Stars' -- and he's getting some advice from someone who really knows his stuff.

We all knew this was coming! When the cast for the 20th season of "Dancing with the Stars" was announced, one couple was suspiciously left off the list. Well, now we know why: Chris Soules, fresh off the final rose ceremony on "The Bachelor," and Witney Carson will be vying for the win this season.

But how will Chris juggle his new fiancée with the demands of Dancing? Well, he's getting some advice from a guy who can certainly relate! Yeas, we talked exclusively to Sean Lowe, who went on DWTS after The Bachelor!

Chris Soules On 'DWTS' Season 20 - Sean Lowe Warns Him

If there's anyone who can relate to what Chris is about to go through, it's Sean - who was on The Bachelor on season 17, then went right on DWTS. However, it may have caused some issues because he told us the advice he'd give to Chris!

"Spend as much time with your new fiancee as possible," Sean revealed to EXCLUSIVELY. "Being on Dancing with the Stars is exciting and all, but the twelve hour dance rehearsals can place strain on the new relationship."

We can only imagine! Chris just chose Whitney Bischoff on the March 9 finale of "The Bachelor," and now he's dancin' with another woman.

Sean Thinks Derek Hough Will Beat Chris

Not only did Sean offer some relationship guidance to Chris, he also gave him a fair warning that the competition will be fierce!

"It's really hard to bet against Derek [Hough] no matter who he's paired with," Sean said. "Teaming up with someone like Nastia Liukin makes him the clear front-runner in my mind."

Well, not that we necessarily agree, but Nastia is a former Olympian after all. Just sayin'.

Are you excited to see Chris compete on Dancing? Do you think he and Whitney will make it through his dancing with another Witney? Let us know!
