Here at JJJ, we’re super excited to see Riker Lynch compete on Dancing with the Stars this season, but did you know he’s related to one of the pros and one of the judges?!
That’s right, Riker‘s second cousin is dancer Derek Hough and his sister judge Julianne Hough!

When asked if he was nervous about living up to their standards, Riker told E! News, “A little bit, it’s kind of like trying to walk in their footsteps. I’m a little bit nervous because they’ve both been so good. But it’s going to be fun!”
He added, “I think I have a little bit of the dance genes from the Houghs, for sure!”
