Jenzi Russell Joins Whitney Way Thore On 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life': Who Is She?

Tonight on My Big Fat Fabulous Life, a new character appeared. Her name is Jenzi Russell, or #Jenzi.

She will be teaching Whitney Way Thore and her girls how to dance well enough to win at their dance contest. So who is she?

Jenzi Russell: Who Is She?

Jenzi Russell is a dancer known for her Instagram presence.

She has choreographed many dances, starting with a local group called Ghetto Government, according to Gen Republic. After leaving that group, she joined another group called FDIB -- Females do it Better.

Since then, she's been choreographing for many well known people. In addition to Whitney, Jenzi has taught dance moves to R&B/hip hop artists such as Kreesha Turner, and others.

Jenzi now does a weekly #JenziTaughtMe course as well as several other courses, referring to herself as a "movement coach".

You can see examples of some of her moves here:

Jenzi is inspired by many well known dancer/singers, including Beyonce and Lady Gaga. Although she is known for her sometimes harsh methods, she has taught countless people dance moves that are extremely difficult.

Even though she's tough on Whitney and her group, Jenzi is likely to be able to turn the team around and really help them win in their dance competition.
