It premieres tonight and our special correspondent former "Dancing" champ drew lachey is giving us an exclusive behind the scenes sneak peek as his brother, Nick, prepares to take on the ballroom. Take a look. ??? Reporter: The 25th season of "Dancing with the stars" has arrived. And it's a family affair. My brother Nick couldn't resist giving me a hard time. This is the best you could come up with, right? I know. Times are tough. Reporter: Rehearsal is like one big family reunion. Nick's wife Vanessa is competing against him dancing with Maks married to PETA, Nick's partner. My husband is with another woman bumping and grinding. I'll have to be okay with it. Reporter: Separating home and ballroom can be a challenge. He showed you his first step already. I know. You didn't keep the mystery. I showed nothing to PETA. Either we'll be on the same page in sharing information with an enemy or we'll be on the same page with like, oh, yeah, this is what we do. Reporter: You see set pieces going in, light, people rehearsing, everything is rehearsed. Down to the judges' scores. Yes. Let's get scores. Reporter: This place is a well oiled machine. From "Shark tank" to the dance floor. Show them how you look at me when we dance. He looks at me like that. Look away, people. It's not safe for morning television. ???

You are know what they're going through right now. A lot of butterflies. A lot of pretty fierce rehearsals. Yeah. Yeah, I guarantee you right now they're starting to freak out. The show is today. They're just thinking please don't let me go home first. Let me remember the steps. So there's a lot going on in their heads right now. Between Nick and Vanessa who is more nervous. I say probably Nick because there's the sibling rivalry in there too. He has an expectation to live up to. Between Nick and Vanessa can you go ahead and make the tough decision and tell us who is going to do better? Oh. That is going to make for awkward holidays. So I don't know if I'm comfortable with that. They're beet going to do well. Okay. Pull back. Yeah, we're only 60 days from Thanksgiving. I think that's very smart. Pull back.
