“He’ll go far,” Harrison says. “It’s a little bit like the Emmys, it’s a popularity contest. He is lovable, likable, he’s going to give it his all.”
And despite not having much talent on the dance floor, Amabile will still be fun to watch, Harrison says.
“He’ll be terrible in a good way,” he adds. “These guys aren’t meant to be great dancers. He can’t dance!”
So just how far does Harrison think he’ll go?
“I’ll say final four or five,” he says.
Harrison announced that Amabile had joined Dancing with the Stars during the Bachelor in Paradise reunion Tuesday.
“It’s a good opportunity. Why not do it?” Amabile told PEOPLE.
And while he’s excited for the new opportunity, the Chicago produce buyer said he will be putting in lots of practice hours to learn how to dance.
“I don’t know how to dance. I don’t remember the last season I saw but it was probably a couple years ago. If I watch now, I’ll psych myself out. It will be really bad. I’ll probably be throwing up,” he said.
Dancing with the Stars season 27 premieres Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
