WATCH: Ben Cohen's Shirtless Paso Doble

By: Brandon Voss

Pulling off lycra and sequins as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, Ben Cohen — who'd hoped to be half of the show's first same-sex couple — had his sixth official dance on the U.K. reality competition, dancing the paso doble to "Supermassive Black Hole."

"Thank you all so much for all the support!! It is really overwhelming," the former rugby star wrote on Facebook.

The British gay ally and antibullying activist's score, which qualified him to stick around for yet another week, was higher than scores for his previous cha chawaltz, rumba, salsa, and quickstep.

Check out his moves below.
