The Backlot chatted with Brant about the perils of training for the show, his partner, and who he thinks is his biggest competition.
Tell me first of all, what’s the process of getting on the show. Do you campaign or do you just throw yourself out there and hope you get the call?
Honestly, it came as a shock to me. They contacted my manager about coming in for a meeting. I can honestly say I never expected it, never thought I’d be on a reality show but there’s something about them teaching me a usable skill that I couldn’t pass up!
Tell me about the first time you met your dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd. She’s tough but she gets results. She has a winner (Donald Driver) under her belt!
Absolutely! I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her as a partner. She knows exactly what she’s doing. Meeting her at first was so nerve wracking! It was a surprise for me on camera. I was very nervous, let’s put it that way.
It’s early but who of your fellow contestants are you eyeballing as a threat?
I’ve been thinking that for a couple of weeks now and I’m not completely sure. I don’t really know what a lot of them are capable of yet. I will say that I’m keeping my eyes on Corbin Bleu, I’m keeping my eyes on Christina Milian, I’m keeping my eyes on Elizabeth Berkeley [and] definitely Keyshawn Johnson.
