Jeannie Mai proved exactly why the whole of America is eyeing her up with a raised leg, a denim swimsuit, and a whole mood ahead of last night’s “Dancing With the Stars.” The 41-year-old TV host and YouTuber’s Instagram has been buzzing ever since she landed her 2020 gig on Season 29 of the popular competition series, with an update from Jeannie proving particularly popular ahead of her appearance on Monday evening – big surprise, it was a balcony swimsuit shot showing off the killer figure. Check out the denim action below.
Scroll for the little leg lift. Jeannie, best known for makeover show “How Do I Look” and co-hosting syndicated talk show “The Real,” had posed glamorously on a glass-wrapped terrace and showing it’s still a Hot Girl Summer. The star, flaunting her super-toned legs and cleavage in a cupped denim bathing suit with a belted detailing, seduced the camera from underneath a floppy straw hat, also showing off her arched feet and white-painted toenails.
“When in doubt, wear denim,” Jeannie wrote while lounging around.
Jeannie, followed by 2.3 million, has largely proven popular with her updates since “DWTS” kicked off – as The Blast reported, her first post marking her TV presence this year sparked requests for her to do a “WAP” video. Comments to these snaps, however, saw the beauty trolled a little.
“Is on dancing with the stars for 4 weeks and all of sudden arches feet for all photos. ???,” a popular comment read. Jeannie has not ignored the comment, firing right back and writing: “This two stepper is learning?.”
Jeannie, whose mom regularly features on her YouTube, has been continuing to shout out her Vietnamese heritage and her status as a U.S.-born individual raised by hard-working immigrants. Posing recently with her grandmother, Mai wrote:
“If it weren’t for my grandmother and the perseverance of my family, I would not exist. Tonight, I dance for the millions of Vietnamese refugees and “boat people” who risked their lives in search of freedom by coming to this country.”
“I love you Bà Ngoại and Uncle Jessie ? #DWTS #TeamDreamofJeannie (next slide is Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Jessie, my late Uncle Nghĩa, and @themamamai,” she added.
Singer Christina Milian was quick to comment on the grandma post as she told Mai “She’s beautiful,” with 40-year-old retired basketball star Brandon Armstrong also swooping in to say: “Hopefully this dance will make them proud and feel honor! ??.”
Meanwhile, the edgy swimsuit post snagged Jeannie a like from “Growing Up Hip-Hop” star and fellow swimsuit lover Angela Simmons.
