She also joined a select group of dancers from the show (including her brother Benji Schwimmer) of never being in the "bottom four" dancers as well.
The two of them made show history by being the only couple never to sink to the dreaded "bottom three" - that is, the couples who were in jeopardy every week of being taken off of the show.
“At the end of the day, it was towards the middle of a season where I had to put a smile on my face and pretend it didn’t affect me, but it really did,” she added.
“I mean, when you’re on blast like that and people are calling you fat, it’s just humiliating.” The pretty pro, now dancing with reality star Rob Kardashian, said her curvier figure (at the time) was due to a little time off from her rigorous dancing schedule.
Her parents are Laurie Kauffman and notable West Coast Swing dancer Buddy Schwimmer. Schwimmer went on to have annual top rankings at the U. Open Swing Dance Championships and has won numerous U. They were upgraded to the youth level in August 2003 and participated in dozens of competitions. Schwimmer entered the preliminary auditions for So You Think You Can Dance's third season partnered by her brother, Benji Schwimmer, following his win the previous season.
She is the younger sister of Benji Schwimmer, winner of the second season of So You Think You Can Dance. Schwimmer has been training and dancing competitively since a young age. At age ten, she and partner Blace Thompson placed 1st in the Young America Division at the 1998 U. After her selection to the top 20 finalists, Schwimmer was paired with contemporary/hip hop dancer, Kameron Bink.
