The announcement came Wednesday morning on Good Morning America with dancer Emma Slater making the reveal as she pulled a disco ball off Scott’s head.

The real estate expert is already getting himself ready for the dance competition, though he knows it won’t be easy. “I’m an athletic guy, I’m a sporty guy, I like taking on a challenge,” Scott said, “but I’ve never danced before. [Slater] is the best, she won last season, so I want to make it my duty to get her a second Mirror Ball.”
As for his thoughts on the famous DWTS ballroom, Scott joked, “I haven’t spent a lot of time there yet, but I’m thinking I can probably fix a few things up. Change the floor plan.”
Scott also got support from his brother Jonathan, who was busy on another home renovation project. “Good luck, Drew, on Dancing With The Stars,” he said in a video message. “Just remember, I am the brother with the rhythm, so if you need somebody who is going to show you some of the moves—” he added, before accidentally dropping the broom he was dancing with and saying, “Nevermind, back to work!”
The full cast for Season 25 will be announced Sept. 6 on Good Morning America, though E! News reports that Nick and Vanessa Lachey will be in the competition facing off against each other, as well as WWE star Nikki Bella. ABC has not confirmed those rumours.
Dancing With The Stars returns Monday, Sept. 18.
