The Houston area’s own Olympics star, Simone Biles, will be competing in Season 24 of “Dancing with the Stars,” according to Entertainment Tonight.

"Entertainment Tonight" reported that Biles told them in August that she wasn't able to join the show last year due to her schedule, but "would love" to participate in a later season.

"I would love to (join "DWTS"), but the fall season won't work because (of) the tour," Biles told “ET."

Biles, 19, was referring to the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions, which she performed in from September through November.

She added, "If I could do the spring season, I would love to do that."

In addition to Biles, wrestler Laurence “Mr. T” Tureaud, will appear on the show.

The new season of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres on March 20.
