Benji Schwimmer (season two)

After taking the "SYTYCD" season two title, the swing dancer with the famed "booty" partnered with his cousin, Heidi Groskreutz -- also a Season 2 finalist -- to perform on FOX's New Year's Eve special and to sell a line of instructional swing dance videos. During "SYTYCD" Season 3, Schwimmer became the first show alum to choreograph for new contestants, bringing the studio audience and the judges to their feet with a West Coast Swing number for Pasha Kovalev (who, by the way, returned with ballroom partner and fellow Season 3 contestant Anya Garnis to choreograph Randi & Evan in a samba earlier this month) and Sara Von Gillern (who, p.s., went on tour with Avril Lavigne post "SYTYCD"). In Season 4, Schwimmer came back to the show with sister and Season 3 finalist, Lacey, to guest choreograph once again. Schwimmer was also featured in Christina Aguilera's "Candyman" video, has served as a correspondent for "Reality Remix" on the FOX Reality Channel and is currently appearing in the 2009 summer flick, "Love N' Dancing," with Amy Smart.
