It seems Ru doesn't want to compete with the 2014 Sochi Olympics, the season set to premiere just a day after Sochi's closing ceremony.
The article in US Weekly also mentions a new '90s rap challenge inspired by TLC. Hopefully this means that one or all of the group members will be making a guest appearance this season!
Though the premiere date is later than everyone was hoping, at least we finally have an actual date to look forward to. Let the countdown begin... 46 days to go!
