SYTYCD Jose “Full Deck” Ruiz  

Jose “Full Deck” Ruiz, 23:  This Boricua from Miami, Florida—who describes himself as humble and explosive—already has a “Full Deck” of loyal fans rooting for him to win, and that never hurts.
Why we think he can win: Fans seem to really love his smile and confidence. The fact that he’s this season’s only break dancer (and that he can stand on his head for hours) doesn’t hurt—well, it might hurt his head. 
Achilles Heel: Jose is self-taught, a fact that may come back to bite him when the dance routines become increasingly more difficult.

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
