First Gatorade Dancer Athlete is a Woman!

I’m really glad Lauren Froderman won So You Think You Can Dance last night. I didn’t think I had a clear favorite until it came down to the time when Cat Deeley was getting ready the winner’s name and I was practically falling off my couch, chanting, “Please Lauren, please Lauren, please!” in my head. I think one of the coolest things about the winner’s prize this time is that Gatorade ad. According to what Nigel Lythgoe’d said earlier, this season’s winner will get to be Gatorade’s very first dance athlete included in their advertising campaign. Very cool someone like this is finally recognizing dance as a sport. And very cool that that first athlete dancer  is female 🙂 When it came down to it, I couldn’t see Kent or Robert in that role – either as an embodiment of dance’s athleticism or as the ultimate winner of the show. I really think the right person won. She was consistently better throughout than the other two and she has real star quality. So good for her and good for the show and good for dance.


  1. Yeah, I thought Kent had the edge because he’s such a cutie and it’s got to be mostly girls watching this show, so they’d vote for him. But I thought Lauren’s body of work on the show was so much more deserving. What’s really crazy is that both Lauren and Kent are only 18! They’re just babies and they’re already so stinkin’ good!

    • I know this is going to sound boggas but i’ve met lauren and shes so nice it was 3 days after she won and not surprisingly her voice was hoarse but she was soooooooo happy i’m also very glad she won
