Adam Peaty Plays Role of Avatar Character During Rumba on Strictly Come Dancing

As the British reality show, Strictly Come Dancing, moved into its third week of performances on the BBC on Saturday night, Adam Peaty looked like nothing swimming fans have ever seen before. The back-to-back Olympic champion in the 100-meter breaststroke, Peaty took part in “Movie Night” while looking like a character from the hit film, Avatar. Peaty, along with partner Katya Jones, was painted blue as he performed his dance, the Rumba.

Last week, the fan vote saved Peaty from elimination from the popular show, and Peaty will again need to rely on the support of his fan base as he and Jones managed a score of 20 out of 40. Supporters of Peaty and Jones took to social media to defend the Olympian, claiming he was the victim of harsh judging compared to other contestants. Whether Peaty and Jones survive to dance another week will be determined during Sunday night’s results show.

Peaty decided to venture into the world of reality television after he defended his Olympic crown in the 100 breaststroke at the Tokyo Games last summer. Peaty indicated that he was eager to accept a new challenge and push himself in an arena that was unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Peaty has routinely taken to social media to express how much fun he has been having during this new venture.
