His partner for weeks 1-5 was Noelle Marsh, but Noelle was injured before taping began and thus unable to dance. During the taping of week 1, Russell danced with their choreographer, Melanie LaPatin. In week 6 he danced with Mollee Gray. His partner for week 7 was supposed to be Ashleigh Di Lello, but she was unable to dance during the show's taping due to an injury. As the first Krumper to make it to Vegas, into the Top 20, Top 10 and Finale, Russell went on to win the competition. Unfortunately, he was injured during the finale and was unable to perform his remaining routines.
