    I remember seeing him in the audition videos for HSM 2! He can be seen pretty clearly in the baseball dance sequence.

    Why are there so many dancers from high school musical appearing on the show? Makes me feel like there's some sort of secret conspiracy going on.

    i like what i've seen of gev so far too. he has somewhat of an ivan-esque feeling to him probably cuz he's russian and dances hip hop. but i think gev will be funnier and more entertaining. hope he sticks around for a while.

    Gev is NOT Russian, everybody. Russia and Kazakhstan are separate countries, though previously part of the USSR. (Sorry, pet peeve of mine... kind of like how Africa is not a country.)

    I think he did okay, but he wobbled a bit on the lift at the very end when the music stopped. Hopefully he's not another Dominic (girl dropper)

    Whoopsy! I guess I didn't read Gev's updated bio when I typed that. "I was born in Kazakhstan, but I am Armenian/Russian." My bad. Oh well, take it as me talking about his nationality and not ethnicity.

    He's... okay. Doesn't really stand out right now, but then hardly any of them do except for frontrunners (IMO) Mark, Twitchington, Katee and Joshua.

    I think he is of Armenian descent. His last name sounds Armenian to me. Anyone knows?

    ETA: Oops! I should have read the last post before I wrote this So he's Armenian-Russian.
