Reality television personality and animal expert Bindi Irwin is to compete on Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, which kicks off Sept. 14 on ABC.
Irwin was the first contestant revealed for this season. Her name was announced on Monday's edition of Good Morning America.
Irwin, 17, is best known for starring in her family's docu-series The Crocodile Hunter and in her own children's program Bindi the Jungle Girl.
"I'm more afraid of the judges than I am of Crocs!" Irwin is quoted as saying in a tweet posted on the official DWTS Twitter account.
