He’s already one of the most talked-about contestants on season 13 of Dancing with the Stars. And with the competition a little less than two weeks away, Chaz Bono’s official DWTS portrait has been released.

In the photo, a smiling Bono, 42, is suited up in black pants, black tie and a black vest, standing next to his partner, Lacey Schwimmer, who’s wearing a short and flirty red and black dress.

“We kind of instantly hit it off,” Bono has said of Schwimmer. “She has a great attitude for teaching me.”

And soon their official portrait may be out of date. Schwimmer recently told PEOPLE that the pounds are melting off of Bono as they ramp up their rehearsals.

“He’s lost five pounds in six days,” she said. “It’s so great. He says he’s not eating any differently, he’s just dancing.”

Season 13 of Dancing begins Sept. 19 (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
