Val Chmerkovskiy joked that Mark Ballas was back on Dancing with the Stars as new celebrity competitor A.J. McLean bares an uncanny resemblance to the former Mirrorball-winning pro. The Backstreet Boys singer and songwriter was formally announced as one of Season 29's celebrities during an announcement on the September 2 episode of Good Morning America.
With three photos, he shared the uncanny resemblance the two men share.
The first photo depicted Mark alongside his wife of three years, BC Jean, in a lighthearted moment. In the snap, Mark wore a black fedora with a dark, open-necked shirt and pants. On his neck, he sported a long beaded necklace.
BC, who penned the Beyonce hit "If I Were a Boy," also wore the dark hue in an outfit similar to her husband. She stuck her tongue out for the camera. Together, Mark and BC helm the band Alexander Jean.
The former professional dancer — who won the Mirrorball Trophy in Season 6 with Kristi Yamaguchi and Season 8 with Shawn Johnson — was also a seven-time finalist.
In a second slide, Mark was seen at a formal event. He wore a formal tuxedo with a white dress shirt. Black button covers were attached to the front of his shirt. His dark hair was pushed back away from his face and his mustache and full beard were neatly trimmed.
