Sure you know that Dancing with the Stars contestant Chris Soules just starred on The Bachelor, but did you know that his celebrity crush is Jennifer Aniston?

‘Dancing With The Stars’: Season 20 Fun Facts
Dancing with the Stars is back, baby!
Before the big premiere, get to know the new crop of dancers!
Chris Soules: Chris’s celebrity crush may be Jennifer Aniston, but did you know he’s also been arrested? Yup, Chris once found himself behind bars due to driving under the influence, according to Radar Online. Let’s hope Dancing goes better for him than driving.
Robert Herjavic: Robert immigrated to Canada when he was just eight years old, after fleeing from his native Croatia in order to escape from communism. After that, Dancing should be a cakewalk for him.
Noah Galloway: Noah is obviously incredibly inspiring, having lost both his arm and his leg in combat, but did you know he was actually named Men’s Health Magazine‘s 2014 Ultimate Guy? Winning Dancing would just be a bonus for this guy!
Charlotte McKinney: Charlotte is a successful model and actress, but she actually didn’t graduate from high school! The gorgeous blonde dropped out at the age of 17 to pursue modeling.
Patti LaBelle: Patti is a living legend. In fact, she has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Apollo Hall of Fame, and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
Suzanne Somers: Suzanne has done so many infomercials, that she has actually been inducted into the infomercial Hall of Fame, after the Direct Marketing Response called her an “industry legend.”
Michael Sam: Michael is, believe it or not, the seventh of eight siblings– so we know he’s used to fighting for things!
Nastia Liukin: We all remember Nastia totally crushing it at the Olympics, but you might not know who she has to thank for her success: Her dad, who is also her coach!
Who are you excited to see on Dancing with the Stars?
