Maynard was notably absent from the lineup although early December reports claimed the reality TV star had signed on to commit to doing Dancing with the Stars when she initially inked her The Bachelorette contract.
According to a source close to Maynard, she "badly" wants to remain in the limelight.
"Who wouldn't? It looks like fun!" the source told Us.
Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth season will premiere Monday, March 18 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC -- one week after the finale of Lowe's currently-airing The Bachelor edition airs in the same time period on March 11.
