Peloton instructor and DWTS alumnus who is famous for his fanaticism of Britney Spears and King Triton from The Little Mermaid and his conviction that Mel C is the most vocally proficient of the Spice Girls.
On November 3, Cody Rigsby will release a whole new lecture series. Hybrid talk show/workout DVD with lots of laughs
“Our guests are definitely going to be in the hot seat, getting interview questions as they’re pedaling through a workout,” adds Rigsby, 35, who compares LOL Cody to the popular YouTube series Hot Ones.
“When they appear on this show, celebrities often present a more relaxed and approachable side.
I’m hoping the physical exertion and sweating that comes with a climb or cadence will give these celebs a new dimension in their performances.”
Learn more about the four-part series, which can be viewed whenever you like on your Peloton Bike, Peloton Bike+, or Peloton App, below. This is our version of “after hours,” as stated by CODY RIGSBY.
I’ll be hosting a show while riding a bike; special guests will include celebrities and members of the Peloton team.
When we’re having a good time and laughing during our workout, the time will feel like it’s flying past.
In the first act, Trixie Mattel could read the phone book, and people would still find it funny.
There have been many successful queens on [RuPaul’s Drag Race], and Trixie is among them.
With her fame, she has launched a cosmetics line, a television show, online material, a clothing line, and a tour with Katy Perry.
She has developed a successful company, and I admire both that and her business acumen. Everything she says is genuine, uniquely her, and hilarious.
That’s how I am, and that’s how my writing is: brazen. At Peloton, you are revered as the “Pop Culture King.” In your opinion, what does that imply?
I have always been quite interested in current events and popular culture, even from an early age.
When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get home from school and watch TRL to find out what the top video of the day was.
I’ve always been interested in current events and pop culture, and I enjoy discussing and sharing my thoughts on these topics while riding my bike with other people and making them laugh.
We have some incredible guests scheduled who are either significant figures in the current cultural moment or people with strong opinions on the subject of popular culture.
And as a self-assured homosexual, I welcome the company of a kindred spirit with whom to test the limits. When you think back, what do you remember most about the world of popular culture?
Having my mum drive me to school while we listened to the soundtrack to The Bodyguard is one of my favorite childhood memories. In this manner, Whitney Houston has always been a part of my personal pop-culture sphere.
My adoration for Britney Spears began when I was still in middle school. My mother splurged on me when I was younger and bought me a CD. Oops!… I Did It Again.
To what extent did your experience on Dancing With the Stars influence the way you live now?
What I learned from my time on Dancing With the Stars will be with me forever. In terms of sheer difficulty, it ranks among the top few things I’ve ever attempted.
What I’ve learned is that it’s essential to be genuine at all times. People cease caring about you when you stop being authentic.
When that happens, you stop being genuine. Given the uncertainty of future opportunities, it encouraged me to make the most of every stage upon which I could stand.
And I think I bring that spirit with me every time I hop on the bike.
Can you share the most divisive opinion you’ve ever held about a cultural phenomenon?
A member of the boy band NSYNC, JC Chasez is the group’s main vocalist.
Nothing anyone says about Justin Timberlake changes the fact that [JC] was the most dedicated member of NSYNC vocally, and he always slayed.
Mel, my partner on Dancing with the Stars, is another example. Mel C served as the group’s unifying force. She could perform the best vocal performance while also doing a back handspring.
I was wondering whether you ever imagined meeting anybody particularly special.
If this show were to continue, RuPaul would be on my most-wanted celebrity roster.
I really want Shangela to come on since she’s been my favorite dancer so far this season.
Incorporating Mel C would be a smart move.
I like her show very much, and I’d like to get in touch with her again.
When the Disney princes in your game of Smash or Pass finally run out, what are you going to do?
I’ll give you a hint of what’s to come: I expect Smash or Pass to appear in LOL Cody, and we’ve already expanded into several new areas that I think you’ll find really exciting.
