HBO Max’s new reality series Finding Magic Mike is all you need if you love a whole lot of six-packs and dad bods. The show features 10 non-professional male dancers or strippers, who are ready to channel their inner Channing Tatum and become the next “Magic Mike”. Ricky Negron is one of the contestants, who initially joined the show as a joke which then changed his life.

Ricky Negron On Finding Magic Mike
Finding Magic Mike is a seven-episode series that followed 10 normal guys, narrowed down from an initial pool of 50, all looking to find their “magic” and $100,000 prize along with it. Also, the winner will have the opportunity to perform in the Magic Mike Live stage show in Las Vegas.
But the show was much more than just stripping. It also helped the contestants to appreciate themselves and realize that everybody has their own “magic.” And Ricky admits it.
He revealed that it was his roommate who first sent him the link to the audition while he was handling some business in the men’s room. So, jokingly, he applied. However, a part of him knew that the competition was tailor-made for his personality type. “Stripping, humor, a talking tummy, I had all the ingredients to succeed in this space,” he added.
Also, Ricky shared that before the show, he used dancing only as an emotional outlet. “While not being a professional, a little twerk here-and-there got me through some of my darkest days,” he said. And even after the show, not much has changed. He still believed that what “your body could do through movement, is living.”
For him, dancing was bliss. He explained that there was something particularly freeing about playing a song and just foolishly living through that music.
Promoting his appearance on the show, Ricky took it to his IG on November 19, 2021, to write, “All those days of stripping in my kitchen to Britney Spears have finally paid off!”
Also, a month later, Ricky asked his IG followers to root for him through a sassy photo.
This season, Ricky was joined by co-contestants Austin Arizpe, Kevin Klass, Adonis Frank, Michael Thantrong, Ross Harris, Jiovanni Teheran-Jones, Johnny Dutch, Merlin Leon, and Nate Bryan.

- And you’ve got a smile that can light up this whole town.
- That someone in the crowd.

Well, this dancer surely got a strong word game going on.
Also, on Laura’s birthday in 2021 (i.e. on December 17), Ricky wrote a heartfelt caption alongside a series of their memories. A part of which wrote, “Your birthday, your existence, your love, it is all beyond important to me.”
