Jonathan Scott Says His Brother Drew Is Very Competitive

Drew Scott has lost 27 pounds while getting ready for Dancing With The Stars. He says he’s in the shape of his life. His brother Jonathan says Drew is very competitive. So, watch out. From People…..

“I have a strong understanding of how to adjust eating and workout habits to maximize health gains,” Scott says.

While he typically is rushed for meals during Property Brothers filming, Scott says he’s making a point to eat better during DWTS.

“Our filming schedule is crazy busy, which means not always getting the chance to eat well and workout regularly,” he says. “However upon agreeing to do DWTS, I started cutting out any of the bad foods (pizza…I miss you!!), reduced the size of meals I was eating and started doing more regular weight training, cardio and yoga.”

When the show premieres on Sept. 18, expect a slimmed-down Scott moving and grooving to “Our House” by Madness. And his twin brother Jonathan will be cheering him on from the sidelines.

“He’s very competitive, so he’ll do well. If anyone can whip him into shape, it will be Emma,” Jonathan previously told PEOPLE. “She just makes it fun and she knows how to win, so let’s go for two Mirror Balls in a row!”

Bring it on, Drew and Emma. More at People.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

DWTS Season 25, Week 1 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Thanks to Rachel in the comments for the heads up on People’s (early, so we can’t spoil) reveal of the songs and dances for week 1. 😉 Of course, I’ve been on vacation so I’ve not been paying attention anyway. When is the premiere again? 🙂

Okay, so People doesn’t have ALL the dances, but they have a good number. And, as usual, I look at some of these choices and I roll my eyes. Who the hell does Tango in Week 1?? Ridiculous. Of course, if Jordan and Lindsay kill it, it will go one of two ways. It will label him as a ringer and it will handicap him…or it will set him on the road to the finals. I wager it depends on the package and the running order. Hope he kills it. Foxtrot and Cha Cha are pretty standard week 1 dances. Salsa? Eh, it’s fine.

As I say EVERY SEASON, these are not in dance order until you see a dance order under someone’s name. Until then, it’s either alphabetical or just plain random.

ETA: Updated with Phone numbers. NOTE:These were handed out in alphabetical order and are not necessarily indicative of dance order.

ETA2: Via Disney ABC, the rest of the dances have been filled in. Also, get ready for a fun opening number which Judge Len Goodman will take part in.

The premiere will kick off with an exciting opening number featuring head judge Len Goodman and the entire cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” choreographed by the show’s own Emmy-winning Mandy Moore.

ETA3: And this is why I love Cheryl – she always shares when she’s dancing. 🙂

ETA4: I’ve put the dances in order per Tom’s tweet based on a hunch by DWTS fan Claire. Seems like a good hunch to me, but note it could be off base. 🙂 Seems like a good guess, though, since it puts Nick and Vanessa at the top of the hour, Cheryl opening the show, Mark/Lindsey close to the end. Nikki in the pimp spot would be interesting though. Perhaps she’s really good? Or have they designated Artem as the pro who should win this season? Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
