Property Brothers star Drew Scott has been rehearsing for weeks leading up to his Dancing with the Stars debut and has revealed he is already seeing his body transform significantly!
“In the last 6 weeks — because once I said I’m going to do it, I started eating a little better and doing more cardio and going in and stretching — I’ve lost 27 pounds already,” Scott told Us Weekly. “I was actually thinking, ‘Should I try to do a little bit of dance lessons before?’ And I was just told to do cardio and stretching and it’s just shedding. I haven’t been this light in over 20 years.”
Scott is engaged to Linda Phan and commented how this is the perfect time for him to be getting into shape with a beach wedding around the corner! “[In] my mankini ’cause we are doing a destination wedding. Picture that!” he joked.
The 39-year old revealed that he is rehearsing every free moment he has and has been taking his journey quite seriously. “We literally are training on the bus,” Scott said. His instructor and partner Emma Slater added: “We have to utilize every single moment that we get.”
Scott also admitted that dancing is much more challenging than he initially thought despite his athletic background. “The thing about me is I’ve always have been good at picking up routines fast. I come from a martial arts background so we’d have to do combos and stuff,” Scott told Us Weekly while adding his struggles. “That, I pick up fast. But it’s the fine points of the technique that my body hurts — pointing toes and putting my foot in, all this stuff and holding my frame. Oh my gosh it hurts.”
