Dancing with the Stars Season 30 saw three finalists who had previous dancing experience. These included Jojo Siwa, Cody Rigsby, and Amanda Kloots. Ironically, the last remaining finalist, Iman Shumpert had no prior experience, and he won, to the joy of fans who felt the show was rigged. Now, fans say a sounding “no” to future contestants featured who previously had dancing experience.

Dancing with the Stars Finalists Saved By Voters And Judges

Even Jojo Siwa, who fans complained about from the beginning of the show, faced the possibility of elimination at one stage. It came on Queen Night when the dancer with lots of experience on Dance Moms landed in the bottom two. Well, the judges saved her. Actually, she really danced well until then, but fans already fumed, as they already expected that. Meanwhile, Cosy Rigsby was also saved, but in fairness to the judges, that came from the voters.

Dancing with the Stars fans might not be aware that Cody and Amanda Kloots also had previous dance experience. Amanda had previous dancing experience on Broadway. Meanwhile, Cody also had experience. Insider reported that he moved to “New York City for an internship program at the Broadway Dance Center, he danced at bars and for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.” Additionally, he “landed jobs as a dancer for Katy Perry and Pitbull, and worked at The Box, a music, theater, and burlesque club.” None of them won, but fans grew irritated about it anyway.

Dancing with the Stars Fans Say No More Experienced Contestants

Heavy.com asked the audience on Facebook about their feelings when it comes to ABC casting experienced dancers. Well, they gave a rounding “no” to casting anyone with previous experience of dancing professionally. It’s not like they don’t like Jojo, Cody, and Amanda. However, they feel that it’s very unfair on the other competitors.

Instead, fans would like to see contestants on Dancing with the Stars like “former NFL player Michael Strahan.” One fan suggested, “Jake from State Farm, Amanda Gorman, Gordon Ramsay, Tina Yothers, Nathan Chen, George Ezra, Phil Keoghan.” Other names that arrived included “Country music stars like Garth brooks. Trisha Yearwood Reba mcentire.”

    i haven’t watched the show since I saw about 30 minutes with Tyra Banks as the host on her debut She wants it all about her and she is obnoxious each season I watch the previews to see if she is going to be the host and she is well i don’t watch I want to be entertained and she certainly doesn’t do that Have been watching DWTS since it began many many years ago when the costumes were more like ballroom dancing and enjoyed that got me to tune in every week and had up until Tyra began as host and now is a disaster. Know I am just one person but hope you take this into consideration in jest i say even J Muggs the chimp on the old Today show would do a better job
