The all-star season of Dancing with the Stars doesn't start until Sept. 24, but contestant Drew Lachey is wasting no time in sizing up the competition.
"Everyone on the show is very competitive," he tells PEOPLE. "Everyone's laughing and like, 'Oh, haha, this is going to be fun,' but I guarantee once the show starts up, you're going to see everybody's true colors come out."
One of the people the 98 Degrees band mate, 36, sees as a direct rival – on the dance floor, that is – is former 'NSYNC singer Joey Fatone, 35.

Jack Wagner doesn't take his relationship with happily wed Dancing with the Stars partner Anna Trebunskaya lightly.
"It's a mini marriage when you have a dance partner," Wagner, 52, told PEOPLE backstage after Dancing's season 14 premiere on Monday. "This is like a relationship. ... Anna can attest to that, having had so many dance partners."
And, like a relationship, Wagner has discovered that it's important to know how to read your partner. "We learn when to be funny and have fun, and when to be serious," he says. "You have to learn when the other person needs space. And we're learning."

The season 14 cast members of Dancing with the Stars are set to hit the parquet in fewer than two weeks. But the new crop of contestants have already suited up in their sparkling best to pose for official portraits.

Among those sad to say goodbye to another couple on Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars elimination, no one was more disappointed than the ousted pair themselves, Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya.
"Everyone has an optimism about themselves, and I'm very confident that I did enough to maintain," the boxing legend told PEOPLE. "But that's life. Life is surprising sometimes. Life is shocking sometimes. But you know what? I've gotten down, and I've always gotten back up."
Leonard, 54, was especially bothered about his dismissal because he finally was getting the hang of how things work in the ballroom.
