Spicer has been paired with professional dancer Lindsay Arnold as they compete for the mirror ball trophy.
He says he's doing it "to have fun and make it a really good experience."
Trump supporters have embraced Spicer, but opponents have criticized the program for inviting him.
Spicer told USA Today there's no question a "huge" amount of his votes come from Trump supporters.
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday night.
