Get ready for the 23rd season of Dancing With The Stars!

ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ recently revealed the 13 contestants that will battle it out for the mirror ball trophy! Among the competitors is the iconic songwriter/producer/singer Babyface, talk show host/entrepreneur/socialite Amber Rose, and Olympic Gold medal swimmer, Ryan Lochte, who will be coming fresh from his vandalism scandal.

According to E News, Lochte said he joined the show as a way to move on from his Rio scandal.

“It’s been—the past 2 weeks have been the lowest point of my life…Fans, my family, my friends have all been really positive, keeping me going…I want to put that behind me. I’m never one to dwell on the past,” he said on GMA. “I just want to move forward…Everyone’s got to be sick and tired of hearing about this, I know I am. I just want to move forward and…put on my dancing shoes. At least try to.”
