photo: ABC Family"So You Think You Can Dance" won't return to the airwaves until this summer, but thankfully, "SYTYCD" diehards have been tided over lately by a slew of guest TV appearances by "SYTYCD" alums. This past Monday, reigning co-champions Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Eliana Girard and judges Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio made cameos on Fox's "Bones," and that same night, Season 5 winner Jeanine Mason made her debut in a recurring role on ABC Family's beloved "Bunheads." (Jeanine is the second "SYTYCD" star to appear on "Bunheads," following Season 7 runner-up Kent Boyd last year.)
And now, Jeanine fans eager to see the Season 5 stunner return to the small screen don't have to wait until next Monday's "Bunheads" episode, as Reality Rocks has an exclusive preview clip right here. In the scene, Truly Stone (Stacey Oristano) has been kicked out of her dress shop by her landlord and has therefore taken over the Paradise Dance Academy studio--so Jeanine's character, Cozette, decides to make the crowded studio work, dancing among the boxes and with the mannequins. Naturally, adorableness ensues...reminding us all why Jeanine is still one of America's favorite dancers after winning that title almost five years ago.
Jeanine's next episode of "Bunheads" airs Monday, January 21 at 9pm.
