One of the most popular shows on television is the reality dance competition Dancing With The Stars. The show, which debuted on ABC back in 2005, has become a cultural phenomenon with plenty of fans tuning in to watch their favorite celebrities compete for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. Throughout the season viewers are treated to behind the scenes footage of the rigorous amount of exercise they put their bodies through, all for the chance to become the overall winner.
This season has been no different with plenty of contestants from various realms of Entertainment competing for the top slot. Celebrities for this season included legendary singer Mary Wilson, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and beloved actor James Van Der Beek, who struggled a bit towards the end of the season because of his wife’s recent miscarriage. After Van Der Beek’s exit, the three celebrities left vying for the trophy were comedian Kel Mitchell, singer Ally Brooke and reality star Hannah Brown.
The show is also hosted by Tom Bergeron and sportscaster Erin Andrews, who joined the series during its eighteenth season in 2014. Though she has been a welcomed addition to the series she’s, unfortunately, coming under fire for her reaction to the currently announced winner. After both Mitchell and Brooke were eliminated on Finale Night Brown took home the top honor. However, what’s making the biggest headline isn’t who won the Mirror Ball trophy. Instead people are up in arms over Andrews’ reaction.
PopCulture reports that many fans of the show were not impressed with Andrews’ lack of professionalism during Finale Night. In fact, to put it more frankly, they were downright disappointed.
With Hannah Brown coming out on top ahead of Kel Mitchell, who took second place, and Ally Brooke and Lauren Alaina, the former star of The Bachelorette capped off what was an eventful season on the hit ABC dancing competition. When co-host Tom Bergeron made the announcement, keen-eyed viewers noticed a less than lackluster glare from Andrews.
Fans of the show took to Twitter to quickly reveal how they felt about Andrews’ reaction.
Another user stated “#DWTS Congrats to @hannahbrown Well deserved!! Was soo obvious Erin Andrews was very disappointed….. the judges and the hosts are ridiculously opinionated and biased.” with another person adding “Erin Andrews- That was the most distasteful behavior I’ve ever seen from a host! Your blatant attitude towards the winner was disgusting! Shame on you!! @ErinAndrews
Perhaps Andrews was thinking about her Thanksgiving To-Do list and couldn’t be bothered by celebrating with the winner since she knew she had to rush to the market after the show was over. In any case, Congrats to Hannah Brown for her win!
