Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy (born 12 April 1994) is an American Latin and ballroom dancer and choreographer. She first gained attention in 2013, as she finished ladies' third runner-up on So You Think You Can Dance season 10. Johnson continued her professional dancing career on Dancing with the Stars, winning her second season with her partner, Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon.
Johnson was raised in Provo, Utah. Her two older sisters, Stacy and Jill, also are dancers. Johnson is a five-time U.S. National Latin Champion, U.S. National Youth 10 Dance Champion, as well as a three-time National Contemporary Winner. In 2012, she represented the United States at the World Latin Dance Champions.
So You Think You Can Dance
Johnson was a contestant on season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance. She first auditioned the show in Memphis, Tennessee. Her two older sisters had auditioned prior to her, but were cut at Green Mile. She was paired with contemporary dancer Tucker Knox and made it to the top 8. Her specialty was Latin Ballroom. She was eliminated on August 20, 2013.
Dancing With The Stars
Johnson was a troupe member on Dancing with the Stars from season 18 to season 22. She became a professional dancer on season 23 and was partnered with actor Jake T. Austin. They danced jive and cha-cha and were the first couple eliminated on September 20, 2016. Due to Sharna Burgess sitting out the October 31 and November 7 shows for a knee injury from the October 24 dress rehearsal, Johnson filled in as James Hinchcliffe's partner in weeks 8 and 9 and was their trio partner in Week 10.
After taking season 24 off, she returned in season 25 as a troupe member. In April 2018, Johnson was announced to be a pro for her second time on season 26 and she was paired with Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon. The couple reached the finals and won the competition on May 21, 2018. She is one of few dancers to win in her second season and to win after being eliminated first in her previous season.
Following her win, Johnson returned for season 27 and she was paired with reality television star Joe Amabile. Despite continually receiving low scores and criticism from the judges, the pair was consistently saved by the viewers' votes. They ultimately made it to the semi-finals of the competition where they finished in fifth place, tying with Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke.
For season 28, she was partnered with Queer Eye expert Karamo Brown. The couple was eliminated on the seventh week of competition, finishing in eighth place overall.
For season 29, she is paired with Catfish: The TV Show producer and host Nev Schulman.
On June 14, 2018, Johnson and fellow Dancing with the Stars ballroom-dance professional Valentin Chmerkovskiy announced their engagement. They married on April 13, 2019.
