Shirtless Ben Cohen Dances Paso Doble
By Diego James
Ben Cohen — who'd hoped to be half of the show's first same-sex couple — finally fulfilled everyone's other wish by pulling off the Lycra and sequins and dancing shirtless for his sixth official dance on the U.K. reality competition, Strictly Come Dancing.
While dancing the paso doble to "Supermassive Black Hole" with co-contestant Kristina, Cohen looks like a beefy toreador as he spins and kneels and whirls and twirls.
"Thank you all so much for all the support!! It is really overwhelming," the former rugby star wrote on Facebook.
By the way, the British gay ally and antibullying activist's score—which qualified him to stick around for yet another week—was higher than scores for his previous cha cha, waltz, rumba, salsa, and quickstep. And could it because he wasn't afraid to flash some fur?
