So You Think You Can Fool Us?

Apparently two of our bottom 6 this past week have more history than the shows let on. Dmitry and Joy were in the bottom 3 couples but that's not the mystery. Also in the bottom 3 this week were Cousin Heidi and Ryan. Ding Ding Ding!

Thanks to a fellow viewer and blogger GeekCheek who went on their own Veronica Mars like investigation. Apparently Dmitry and Cousin Heidi have been dancing partners since 2005. If SYTYCD has mentioned this (possibly in the audition process) I completely missed it. GeekCheek sent me to this link which is the "couples profile" for Dmitry Chaplin and Cousin Heidi Groskreutz! Who knew?

According to DanceSportsInfo:

First competition recorded
Constitution State Challenge 2005 - Amateur Latin (Latin ) in USA - Stamford (CT) on 16 Sep 2005

Last competition recorded
Blackpool Dance Festival 2006 - Amateur Rising Star Latin (Latin ) in England - Blackpool on 26 May 2006

Biography/Couple History:
They started dancing together in 2005 (July) as Amateur. Currently they are Amateur and are registered as a couple in USA. Their first competition that is recorded in our database was in USA - Stamford (CT). So far their best mark in our database is getting into 2 in the Amateur Latin (Northeastern Open in USA - Stamford (CT) on 28 Jan 2006)

They joined together after Dmitriy and Ilona Mayzenberg split in April 2005 (see profile) and Heidi and Mikolaj Garnecki split in May 2005 (see profile)


  • Cousin Heidi certaintly gets around now, doesn't she? I guess it makes that paths would cross, but I think it's a little unfair that partners with a prior "history" could be paired up together.

    And although I doubt that Dirrty Donyelle is going home anytime soon (luv her), I am concerned about the possibility of Benji and Cousin Heidi being partnered up together. Ugh...what if they have to do some kind of intimate dance...ew!!!

  • Triple EW GRRM on that BenGay/Cousin Heidi pair up of intimacy!

    And to clarify She Who Not Watch Closely (your native american name), Cousin Heidi and Dmitry are not currently paired up on the show. Because Outer Space Train Wreck Aleksandra (with a KS) and Dmitry are now coupled.

    And I absolove Dirrty Donyelle! Good nickname for a good gal!

  • Heidi totally looks like her last name should be Groskreutz.

  • Benji Schwimmer is her cousin do you watch so you think you can dance and o she is partnered with ryan she has nothing to do with dimitry

  • Yeah we watch like crazy, Anonymous!

    On the show Cousin Heidi and Dmitry have nothing to do with each other, in their "semi-professional" dance careers they are Latin Dance Partners.

    And yes, we know she's cousin's with Benji Schwimmer, hence the "COUSIN HEIDI" moniker I've given her.

    SYTYCD needs to be on 5 times a week. It should be like Big Brother where they do live feeds, I'd subscribe like a fool!

  • boredom blogger, seriously with you comment... seriously!

  • Wow, thanks for sharing. I had no idea they had a history. Now I understand why they got rid of Jason instead of Ryan last week.They simply couldn't put Dimitri and Heidi together again. That's so not fair to Jason... He is such a good dancer.
