Prop­erty Brothers’ Drew joins DWTS

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

“Prop­erty Brothers” star Drew Scott is ready for a whole new world of movers and shak­ers as the Van­cou­ver na­tive joins the cast of “Danc­ing with the Stars.”

The real es­tate ex­pert is the first celebrity an­nounced for the new sea­son of the ABC dance-com­pe­ti­tion se­ries. Scott will be teamed with pro dancer Emma Slater when “Danc­ing with the Stars” re­turns for its 25th sea­son on Sept. 18. Other Cana­di­ans who have ap­peared on the long-run­ning se­ries in­clude IndyCar driver and Oakville na­tive James Hinch­cliffe, who was the run­ner-up to Amer­i­can Olympic cham­pion gym­nast Lau­rie Her­nan­dez in the 23rd sea­son of the se­ries last fall. Scott’s new danc­ing stint is a far cry from his role on “Prop­erty Brothers,” in which he scouts and ne­go­ti­ates pur­chases for fixer-up­per homes.

He stars on the Emmy-nom­i­nated HGTV se­ries along­side his iden­ti­cal brother Jonathan, a con­trac­tor and builder.
