Blake Jenner beat out plenty of other contenders to win season 2 of The Glee Project.
Now he starts his role as football jock 'Ryder' on ep 5 'The Role You Were Born to Play'.
He said in an interview that he loves being on Glee. Although he did feel like the new kid at school at first!
"At first, you know, I was just the shyest guy in the world. I didn't want to talk to anybody just yet, I was afraid. But now everybody's cool. We're all really good friends who are just doing what we love."
When asked about Ryder, he revealed that Ryder is an independent jock who wants to forge his own way and not get help from other people.
Fellow castmates from The Glee Project wished him well on Twitter during his debut.
Lily Mae tweeted "9PM Tonight on FOX Watch Blake Jenner on #GLEE No doubt it will be an amazing episode! Glad to know you sir"
Aylin tweeted "Who's excited to watch @Blake_Jenner on @GLEEonFOX TONIGHT!?!?!? I. Can't. Wait!!!! It's gonna be amazing! Make sure to watch! =)"
