Boss was born in Montgomery, Alabama, and was given the nickname “tWitch” as a child, since he never could sit still.

In 2003, he became a semifinalist on MTV’s The Wade Robson Project and the runner-up on Star Search.

The Magic Mike XXL star married fellow SYTYCD alum Allison Holker in 2013 and later adopted her daughter, Weslie Renae, whom she had from a previous relationship. The pair welcomed a son Maddox in 2016 and  daughter Zaia in 2019. In 2017, the couple were named hosts of Disney’s Fairytale Weddings.

Days after celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary, Boss died by reported suicide at age 40. Holker confirmed his death in December 2022, saying in a statement, “I will always save the last dance for you.”
