Mauricio Umansky is joining his fellow Bravolebrity, Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix, on Dancing With the Stars for the series’ upcoming 32nd season.

Following the confirmation of Ariana’s casting in July, as well as early reveals regarding The Bachelorette‘s Charity Lawson, 27, and Jamie Lynn Spears, 32, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, who also appears on Buying Beverly Hills, was officially announced on Good Morning America on Wednesday.

As hosts Alfonso Ribeiro, 51, and Julianne Hough, 35, appeared on the morning show with judges Derek Hough, 38, Carrie Ann Inaba, 55, and Bruno Tonioli, 67, the full cast was revealed.

Joining Ariana and Mauricio, 53, for the new season are actors Barry Williams, 68, and Matt Walsh, 58, actresses Xochitl Gomez, 17, Mira Sorvino, 55, and Alyson Hannigan, 49, model Tyson Beckford, 52, reality star Harry Jowsey, 26, singer Jason Mraz, 46, NFL player Adrian Peterson, 38, and social media influencer Lele Pons, 27.

“I’m SUR-ving it up this season,” Ariana teased on the September 13 episode of GMA, where Pasha Pashkov, was revealed as her dance partner.

Ariana also said that living well was the best revenge.

“I think that that’s just a great life lesson that I’ve learned over the years and I’m hoping to also bring the negative to a positive onto the dance floor as well, if I get any hash critiques, I’ll turn the negative into a positive,” she shared.

Meanwhile, Mauricio was seen in a clip from one of his Agency offices, where he declared, “The reality is, these dance moves are on fire.”

As Mauricio prepares for his debut with professional dance partner Emma Slater, 34, he confirmed his daughters and wife, Kyle Richards, 54, were supportive of his journey, despite their alleged separation, and they were excited to offer their support to him in the ballroom.

“We can definitely expect to see the family cheering me on because we were all on family vacation in Italy and I told them I was doing this. They were so excited, my girls, my wife, everybody is, they’re gonna be there and we’re gonna have a ton of fun,” he revealed.

Dancing With the Stars season 32 premieres on ABC on September 26 at 8/7c.
