Inside the Arnold sisters’ dazzling world of ballrooms, bikinis and occasional missteps – as Rylee prepares for Dancing with the Stars debut


The 32nd season of Dancing with the Stars will not include mirrorball champion Lindsay Arnold, 29 – but it will feature one of her three younger sisters.

Rylee Arnold, 18, will be making her debut as the newest Dancing with the Stars pro when the show hits screens on September 26. Her partner is Too Hot to Handle star Harry Jowsey. 

The girls’ other sisters – Jensen, 25, and Brynley, 23 – are focusing on family life right now, rather than the spotlight of reality TV, but that doesn’t mean fans have to miss out. 

That’s because the four talented dancers also run the successful YouTube channel The Arnold Sisters, which has over 150,000 subscribers, in which they do much more than just dance.

So, who are the Arnold sisters inside and outside the dancing world?

Brynley Arnold, 23, Lindsay Arnold, 29, Jensen Arnold, 25, and Rylee Arnold, 18, are all experienced ballroom dancers, and now run a popular YouTube channel 

Jensen Arnold finished in second place on Season 15 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2018. She was partnered with Jay Jay Dixonbey prior to his elimination

Who is Lindsay Arnold?

Lindsay is the eldest Arnold sister – an experienced Latin and ballroom dancer.

She auditioned and made it to the live shows for Season 9 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2012 when she was 18 – finishing in the top 8. 

Lindsay was later hired as a professional dancer for Season 16 of Dancing with the Stars, and came in fourth place with partner Victor Ortiz in 2013.

Remaining a member of the Dancing with the Stars family for several seasons, she did not appear on Season 29 due to her pregnancy, and she announced her departure from the show after Season 30 in 2021.

Lindsay married her high school sweetheart Samuel Cusick on June 18, 2015. 

Dancers Jenna Johnson and Emma Slater served as bridesmaids, while So You Think You Can Dance contestant Witney Carson was her maid of honor.

She has two children – Sage Jill Cusick, 2, and June Cusick, 4 months.

She faced controversy during the pandemic, for taking a luxurious vacation with her husband and son.

And again more recently, when she posted images of her wake surfing with her two-year-old daughter in her arms.

Since leaving Dancing with the Stars, she has reached over one million followers on Instagram, and posts photos and videos of her with her children on a regular basis.

Who is Jensen Arnold? 

Jensen is the second oldest sister who, like Lindsay, is an experienced Latin and ballroom dancer with reality television experience.

Her first venture into the spotlight was in a So You Think You Can Dance audition with Dancing with the Stars pro Brandon Armstrong in 2015 – to which head judge Nigel Lythgoe told her to ‘come back next year.’

She was spotted later on Season 1 of the CBS series World of Dance as a member of the ballroom dance team FUZE in 2017. 

Jensen returned for Season 15 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2018, and finished as first runner-up behind Hannahlei Cabanilla.

She announced her engagement to Topher Hill on social media, one month into the season in 2018, after the pair went skydiving together, and married on December 27, 2018.

The pair welcomed their first child, Brooks Joshua Hill, now one year old, in 2022, and has posted several photos and videos of him on Instagram.

Jensen has appeared on reality television since So You Think You Can Dance, and has since focused on family and choreographing.   

Who is Brynley Arnold?

Unlike Lindsay and Jensen, Brynley has not shown off her dancing talents on reality television.

Instead, she kept her feet strictly in the ballroom – and more recently put that aside to become a registered nurse in 2020.

Brynley was a medical assistant for four years prior to her RN title.

She also worked as an ER nurse and as director of nursing at a mental health facility in Utah.

Brynley Arnold was a competitive dancer and model before becoming a registered RN. She now runs shares one-year-old Quinn with her husband, Donny McGinnis

Brynley eventually created nursebryn in 2022, which offers cosmetic injections and infusion therapy for patients.

When not working in the medical field, she’s enjoying married life with her husband of three years, Donny McGinnis.

Their wedding was planned during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the process was featured in a 2021 spread in Utah Valley Bride magazine.

She and Donny share daughter Quinn, one, who like her cousins, has been featured in several social media posts on Instagram.     

Who is Rylee Arnold?

Rylee is the youngest and third Arnold sister to dance on television – the second to make it a career.

The teenager first appeared as a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors in 2018 and finished in fourth place with her partner, Miles Brown.

The junior pro was mentored by a Dancing with the Stars pro during that season, which in this case was her sister, Lindsay.

However, the spin-off was canceled after its first season, and Rylee continued her schooling and competitive dancing in the subsequent years.

She recently graduated from high school, and she showed off her diploma on social media on May 20. 

Rylee’s most recent Instagram posts have featured videos and photos of Harry, along with clips of her dancing that were shown on Good Morning America. 

Her social media does not confirm her relationship status, but Instagram users commented that she is allegedly dating a boy named Anson Holman. 

Rylee is currently the only Arnold sister who does not have children, but Lindsay praised her in July about her skills as an aunt.

She said: ‘She’s so patient, so loving, and they love her so much.’

‘Rylee’s the best aunt – we’re very lucky’ Lindsay continued.
