Why is Allison Holker Famous?
Allison gained media attention when appearing on the popular television dance competition, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, where she made it to the top eight.
She was such a popular contestant that in 2014 she was announced as one of the professional dancers, where she partnered with a famous actor named Jonathan Bennett.
Unfortunately, the two were eliminated in week six, where they finished in ninth place. In the next season, she teamed up with actor Riker Lynch, this time making it to second place.
Allison would also meet her husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, on the set of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.
Allison appeared on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, from season 19 to 21, and again in season 23. She would announce in season 21 that she would not be returning to season 22, as she was pregnant with her second child.
She’s appeared in several television commercials, such as for the brand Cadillac, as well as a commercial for a children’s hospital, with her husband by her side.
As well as appearing on several television shows, Allison is also the host of a TV competition on HGTV called “Design Star Next Gen”. The show revolves around design hopefuls competing in a handful of challenges for a whopping $50,000.00 prize!
Who is Allison Holker’s Family?
Allison is the wife of Stephen “tWich” Boss, with whom she shares three beautiful children. The two met on the set of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ in season two, but the pair hit it off in season seven, where they both competed as All-Stars.
Allison says she had tried to get Boss’ attention for a while, saying “I didn’t just make one move — I made, like, 10 moves and he wasn’t seeing them, so I had to put myself out there even more”.
The two were engaged in 2013 when Stephen made a surprise proposal to Allison during the filming of a commercial. They tied the knot that December at a beautiful villa and winery in California.
Their three children are 13-year-old daughter, Weslie, from Allison’s previous relationship, whom Stephen has since adopted, a son, Maddox Laurel, born in March of 2016, and daughter Zaia, whom they welcomed in November 2016.
Together, Stephen and Allison are referred to as the “King and Queen” of Tik Tok dance videos, and after watching them, it’s hard to disagree!
Allison describes her life as a mom as busy and chaotic, but would not trade it for the world! In her heartfelt YouTube video titled “Mom Diaries”, she describes in detail what an average day in the Holker-Boss household entails.
