“So You Think You Can Dance” judge Nigel Lythgoe praised season 15 contestant Jensen Arnold and her entire dancing family in the third week of live shows, saying it would be nice if someone created a reality show around sisters with actual talent. He didn’t mention any untalented sisters by name, but it wasn’t hard to interpret that Kardashian subtweet. Whether or not the Arnold sisters get their own reality show someday, who’s your favorite member of the dance family: Jensen or her trailblazing big sister Lindsay Arnold? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.
Like Jensen, Lindsay got her start on “SYTYCD.” She competed in the ninth season of the show during the summer of 2012. She only made it as far as the Top 8, but she found success the following year when she became a professional dancer during the 16th season of rival competition series “Dancing with the Stars.” Her first season on that show ended early (she finished eighth with boxer Victor Ortiz), but she came back five seasons later, and her track record drastically improved. She has made the finals four times out of her seven seasons, including a Mirror Ball victory in season 25 with Jordan Fisher.
We haven’t gotten to know Jensen for nearly as long, but she has already demonstrated her own star quality. In fact, she has already improved on her big sis’s “SYTYCD” performance by making it to the Top 6, and she hasn’t been in the bottom four on the show yet, so she stands a good chance of making to the Top 4, and maybe even winning the whole competition.
Jensen and Lindsay have two other little sisters, including Rylee Arnold, who will be competing as one of the young pros this fall on “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.” When she gets a chance to show off her skills on the dance floor we’ll include her in our poll, but until then, who is your favorite of the two gifted Arnolds who have broken out so far? Vote below.
