Rob Kardashian is hoping to do better than his big sis Kim did on "Dancing With the Stars," otherwise, he might be in trouble.

It was announced on Monday that Rob would be the second Kardashian compete on the reality show, and he can thank his mom Kris Jenner for the gig.

"I'm actually shocked that I'm doing it - I'm very low-key and really don't like being in the spotlight, but my mom forced me," Rob tells Life & Style. "That's the real reason I'm doing it!"

And Rob wasn't the only one pushed to do the show. "She forced Kim to do it, too!" said Rob, 24. Kim competed on DWTS with Mark Ballas in fall 2008 but was eliminated during the third episode. "[My family] told me that I had better beat Kim as she's a terrible dancer, and if I couldn't do this, then I had a problem. I'm just hoping that I do well."

So who does Rob think might be the next Kardashian to tend up on the show? "Kourtney would never do it," he says. "She's such a homebody."

Also revealed today were the partners for "Dancing with the Stars." Rob might have a good chance, he's been paired with 2-time Mirrorball chamption Cheryl Burke.

David Arquette – Kym Johnson
Ron Artest – Newcomer Petra Murgatroyd
