It seems to be “The Bachelor” star Ben Higgins has so much in his plate right now.

Aside from the upcoming season finale of the ABC reality TV show, Higgins is also considering joining “Dancing with the Stars” Season 22.

“I’m not against any opportunity that presents itself,” Ben told E! News about joining the cast of DWTS.

“I need to analyze if that option was there to say, OK, is this the best thing for me?” I don’t know yet, I don’t. I don’t want to say this is the way I’m going to go with it because I haven’t decided,” he said.

During a press conference of “The Bachelor” late last year, the 27-year-old software salesman revealed his thoughts of joining the ranks of his fellow franchise alums who joined DWTS, International Business Times noted.

“I think I’m excited about what experiences are next in life. Just like I never expected to be on ‘The Bachelorette,’ I never expected to be the ‘Bachelor,’ I don’t know what to expect next and I’m open to anything. I have a great life. I love my life here in Denver. I don’t want to change my life, but if there’s opportunity to enhance it, I’m all for it!” he said at the time.

Higgins is not the first “The Bachelor” alum to join the celebrity dancing competition. Chris Soules competed in season 20, while Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka have also appeared on the show.

Movie News Guide also recalled that “The Bachelorette” 2015 star Kaitlyn Bristowe was impressed of Higgins dancing skills.

ABC has yet to reveal the official cast members for the next season of DWTS. The casting will be officially introduced on March 8 on “Good Morning America,” E! News reported.

The site added that so far, the only official cast members for the upcoming season are “Fuller House” actress Jodie Sweetin, who will be dancing with Keo Motsepe. “America’s Next Top Model” winner Nyle DiMarco and Good Morning America Ginger Zee will also be dancing, E! News sources added.

“Dancing With the Stars” season 22 premieres on March 21 on ABC, while “The Bachelor” 2016 season finale airs on March 14.

Meanwhile, Higgins earlier admitted that he is already engaged and teased that he and his new fiancé are “happier than ever.”

“It’s a pretty big deal. You don’t know how much stress and weight that is, to carry for so long. Good Morning America, I am engaged! Yes, finally!,” said Higgins.

Lauren Bushnell has been rumoured to be the lucky lady Higgins has chosen at the final rose ceremony.
