We were surprised to see Pretty Little LiarsBrant Daugherty (Noel Kahn) on the list of contestants for Dancing With the Stars 2013, but our shock was soon replaced by excitement for the upcoming season (and a little bit of concern that Noel will use his new dancing moves for evil, à la Zoolander’s breakdance fighting). But how does Brant feel about his new gig? Check out his Twitter reaction!  

“Who saw Good Morning America today?!” Brant tweeted right after the announcement on the ABC morning show. “I'm thrilled to be a part of Dancing with the Stars this season.”

Brant will be paired with Peta Murgatroyd, who has been on the show for four seasons. Peta placed sixth with The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe last season, but took top honors in Season 14 with Green Bay Packers’ Donald Driver as a partner. Will she and Brant Foxtrot to victory in Season 17? Brant seems to think he has a chance with Peta by his side: “I couldn't be happier to be paired with @PetaMurgatroyd! She's an incredible dancer and I have so much respect for her #DWTS,” Brant tweeted.

Brant seems much nicer than his PLL counterpart — and much cooler. We can tell by his excitement of getting this Instagram shot with fellow DWTS Season 17 contestant Bill Nye. Yeah, he knows The Science Guy. Coolness contest over.

Will you be watching Brant on DWTS? Do you think he and Peta have a chance of winning? Sound off in the comments below!
