And the winner is…Bobby Bones? Dancing with the stars, we need to talk.
Bones, a radio personality, won because of his followers. That is what Dancing with the stars It has always been treated, it is a content of popularity. Sometimes, the best dancer wins, but for the most part it's about platforms, specifically celebrities with fans who are in the demographics of voting for DWTS. Bones has just that.
Of course, Alexis ren You have millions of followers on Instagram, but are you calling and voting? The same for those of 17 years. Milo manheim Y Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch, all of which obtained higher scores and were better dancers than Bones throughout the season.
After 27 seasons, it seems it's time to Dancing with the stars Take a break. That said, we have some ideas on how to improve the old reality show.
Take a break and cut the aerated ones.
The ratings for the ABC dance competition fell to new lows this year, cut DWTS Up to one cycle per year, whether in the fall, spring, summer or winter, depends on the programming needs of ABC. American idol He disappeared for such a short time, but his return was met with higher grades than the final season.
Reduce the duration of the season.
In addition to the ratings, the power of the stars was also hit. Each exit E! The news verifies the popularity of the cast based only on the recognition of names, this season the results were terrible. By limiting the time commitment, ABC could attract top-level talent.
Add some new judges.
Look, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli Y Len goodman They are great in their jobs, and they are predictable. An infusion of new judges would add some freshness to the aging series. Once again, see what happened to American idol.

Di Pace was sent home in a shocking elimination at the end of the competition after several perfect scores and Tinashe was sent off at the start of the season.

Dancing with the stars: Pop Singers? They have some dance background, but they are not expert dancers. Dancing with the stars: TGIF Actors? Even better, 100 percent would see it.
Change the score
Change how the score and how votes are counted would benefit the competition. It seems that the scores are arbitrary for the first half of the season because a 10 in the first week, even if deserved, is not necessarily a big TV. DWTS It prides itself on being a trip for the participants, with stars that get higher scores just for the better. People who have talent from the beginning do not benefit in the same way. Make home votes count more? Or less? We do not have an answer here, but there is a real imbalance that needs to be modified.
