"It's definitely a huge honor to be voted onto the all-star season for that thirteenth spot," said Bryan. "But at the same time, I think once Monday comes and those lights come on and they call action, it's kind of anyone's game again!"
Bryan danced with Mark Ballas back in season five. He'll take the floor this season with Bristol Palin. Van Amstel has had many partners over the years, including one who is a favorite of Bryan's.
"I mean, Kelly Osbourne is like, an iconic journey that's happened through 'Dancing With The Stars,'" she said. "And he pulled this amazing flower from her. So for me, I already was excited when I first found out, and since then I've gone back and looked at his other routines and it's like, yes!"
Bryan is anxious to learn several dances she never got the chance to perform during her first time on the show: The Argentine tango, the waltz and the samba. But there's once dance Van Amstel is looking forward to re-doing: The foxtrot. It was the dance that Bryan went out with during her elimination week.
"There's this little sentimental pressure," he said. "I'm looking forward to that. That is really the redemption dance."
The viewers wanted to see Bryan and Van Amstel back on the show. Now we'll see if they take them all the way to a mirror ball victory.
The season premiere of "Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars" edition kicks off Monday night at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
