The 17-year-old daughter of the late "The Crocodile Hunter" star Steve Irwin shared the news on "Good Morning America" by saying, "I'm really, really excited and so honored to be a part of this new journey and new chapter of my life. I have to tell you, this is completely different to anything I have ever done in my life. I'm used to wrangling crocodiles!"
Bindi, who has no experience with dancing, will be trading her khakis and boots for ballroom gowns. "I'm used to khaki and boots and I think it will always be a part of my life. We always say khaki just isn't a color, it's an attitude; it's a part of who we are. You can't just climb a tree or wrangle a snake in a dress very easily, so this is completely different. For me, 'Dancing with the Stars' has always been something I've admired."
She admitted, "The judges scare me more than crocodiles."
The 21st season of "DWTS" will premiere on Monday, Sept. 14 on ABC.
