Most adult Americans met singer/actor Riker Lynch for the first time as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. His dance partner is Allison Holker, and they’ve been getting great scores. He’s one of the four celebrities left in the competition.
Riker comes from a family of entertainers. Not only is he a cousin of DWTS judge Julianne Hough and her brother, pro dancer Derek Hough (who’s paired with Nastia Liukin), but Riker is also in a pop rock band called R5 with his brothers Ross and Rocky, sister Rydel, and family friend Ellington Ratliff. Riker’s little brother Ross is also an actor. He was one-half of the Disney Channel hit comedy Austin & Ally and he’s now reprising his Teen Beach Movie role for Teen Beach 2, which Disney will release on June 26. As a part of the Teen Beach 2 cast, Ross will perform on DWTS on May 12, 8pm on ABC.
