We can't think of a better way to celebrate Dancing With the Stars troupe member Teddy Volynets' 22nd birthday, than with a list of five reasons why we love him. Happy birthday Teddy V!

Reason #5: He showed off some killer moves when training with DWTS contestant Hope Solo on Week 7. Can you say next pro dancer alert?

Reason #4: He's originally from Long Island, New York and has an adorable New Yawk accent. Gotta love a native New Yorker!

Reason #3: He's got that cute hipster style. What's not to love about a guy who can pull off a fedora and black-framed glasses?

Reason #2: He balanced NYU and Dancing With the Stars. Is there anything this guy can't do?

Reason #1: He's besties with DWTS hotties Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, and Tony Dovolani.
