Drew Scott, one half of the Property Brothers reality TV duo, has been officially named as the first contestant on the upcoming 25th season of Dancing With The Stars.

The announcement was made on Good Morning America early Wednesday morning and came with some playful jabs at Drew’s twin brother, Jonathan Scott.

“I definitely upgraded my partner – at least in the looks department,” Scott joked on Good Morning America.

The partner he was referring to was last year’s winning dance professional Emma Slater. Slater won dancing alongside former NFL football player Rashad Jennings.

Jonathan Scott didn’t take the insult laying down though, as he too had a video for the Good Morning America crew. Joking that he was the brother with the better moves, he attempts a spin while holding a broom only to trip over himself, proclaiming that he has to get back to work.

Scott also took to Twitter to confirm the announcement, writing, “Yep…this is happening! Retweet if you’re ready for some fun!!”

While no other contestants have been announced for this season, E! News reports that Nikki Bella, of Total Bellas, has been signed on for the season. Nick and Vanessa Lachey have also been reported to have signed on for the new season of Dancing With The Stars and will compete against each other.

It was also confirmed recently that Dancing With The Stars alum Mark Ballas will return as a dance pro for the 25th season after taking the past three years off.

Dancing With The Stars premieres Monday, September 18 on ABC.
