Who Is The Contestant Of Dancing With The Stars Cody Rigsby? Here Is Why He Is Everyone's Favorite
The Peloton Instructor Cody Rigsby is a contestant in the 30th season of the American dance competition television series, Dancing with the stars. 34 years old Rigsby has been a Peloton Instructor for seven years. But he gained wide popularity during the covid pandemic. After the gyms and fitness centers were closed down, outdoor and home workouts became more popular. This provided Rigsby with a great advantage as more people opted for Peloton instead of their regular gym routine.
The recent increase in the number of his followers is a result of his much-anticipated participation in the popular television reality show, Dancing with the stars. From that announcement alone, he has gained 50k more followers on Instagram. Apart from this, the hiked-up number of followers is credited to his work during the pandemic. He is showing off his skills on the dance floor this season. Rigsby is partnered up with two-time champion of the show Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke.
Rigsby does have experience in dancing. He has previously performed for Katy Perry and Pitbull at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The Peloton community has marked their territory by presenting the Peloton star Rigsby to the ABC Monday nights. We are more likely to see Cheryl and Cody back next Monday. The two showed up in matching fuchsia outfits for the stage. They performed a tango on Dua Lipa's song, Physical. Although they scored 24 points only out of a possible 40, Cheryl will most certainly help him get better by next Monday.
