Dancing with Drew Scott: Week one's foxtrot

Drew Scott foxtrotted his way to eleventh place on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars. The 39-year-old is one of 13 stars competing in the show's 25th season. And while the judges had some harsh criticism for our homegrown talent, Drew's spirited debut has us excited to see more of him and partner Emma Slater on the dance floor.

Prior to Drew stepping into the spotlight, his brother Jonathan gave a little back story to his twin's dance history. "I saw Drew dance at his high school prom. I saw Drew dance at nightclubs. The dude does not have any moves!"

Following Drew's dance to "Our House" by the English band Madness, Jonathan was quick to change his tune, applauding his brother for a job well done and encouraging viewers to "Vote for Drew!"

While judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli grilled the Property Brother on his finesse, judge Carrie Ann Inaba applauded him for his "musicality." The judges' scores: 5, 5, 6, respectively.

For the first time in the show's history Canadians can vote for their favourite dancer on Facebook. Polls close Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). Find out if Drew's foxtrot was enough to keep him in the race for the mirror ball trophy next Monday (Sept. 25).
