While Gleeks everywhere have been making the adjustment to seeing their favorite high school group of friend’s transition into college, there’s a new crew moving up the ranks! Back at McKinley High School fans have met Ryder Lynn played by Blake Jenner–the winner of the second season of the Oxygen reality TV series, The Glee Project. Keep reading to learn more about Glee’s newest star and checkout the adorable pics we found of him through the years!
On the FOX series, Glee, Jenner portrays Ryder Lynn a high school student at McKinley High School. He’s a member of the football team and the glee club. While in character, he is also shedding light on a very important cause, as Ryder Lynn is dyslexic. Jenner impressed the judges on The Glee Project with his acting and singing ability but also showed that he was caring, vulnerable and sensitive.
While his passion is acting, Jenner also plays the drums and juggles. Before joining the second season of The Glee Project, he received some rejection while living in Los Angeles. Now, he’s enjoying success with his role on Glee. Prior to joing the competition, The Glee Project, Jenner was a singer but never had a singing lesson; he studied acting and improvisation since he was a child; and he worked as a parrot salesman!
Jenner also shares the small screen with other Glee Project alum, like Alex Newell who plays Wade “Unique” Adams and Samuel Larsen who portrays Joe Hart–both competed on season one.
