Report: Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco to Join ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Report: Bengals' Chad Ochocinco to Join 'Dancing With the Stars' Chad Ochocinco will be taking up an unorthodox training regimen to keep himself in shape this offseason.

The Bengals wide receiver, who makes headlines just as frequently for touchdown celebrations as he does for touchdowns themselves, will be a contestant on this season of Dancing With the Stars, according to TMZ.

Ochocinco joins the ranks of Warren Sapp, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Jason Taylor and Jerry Rice as NFL stars who have taken a turn on the ABC show.

ABC has yet to confirm this season's full cast, as it will be announced during Monday's season finale of The Bachelor, but rumors are circulating that the lineup will also feature Pamela Anderson, Kate Gosselin, Lindsey Vonn and John Stamos, among others.
