'Dancing with the Stars': Lamar Odom caught adjusting himself while on camera
Lamar Odom was recently eleminated from the show but it seems like apart from his elimination people cannot get over with the fact that he adjusted himself in front of camera
Being on camera can be hard and sometimes, we do not have control over what we do. It seems like something similar happened with Lamar Odom during one of the segments of 'Dancing With The Stars' (DWTS). The video, which was posted on Twitter by Smooth Picks, showed Bachelorette" star Hannah Brown and her partner, Alan Bersten, coming to the backstage after their performance to talk to co-host Erin Andrews. While the two seemed to be excited about scoring 32/40, fans were left shocked when the camera panned towards Odom as he was caught adjusting himself.
Fans had a lot to say to the basketball player and were quick to take it to social media. "I noticed right away! I mean c’mon man. Turn the back!!! Jeesh!," one fan tweeted. Another user noted, "Gross...adjusting himself, trying not to "rise to the occasion".
Apparently, when Lamar was asked about this faux pas by HollywoodLife after the episode aired, he said: “Yeah, I think there’s…The Shade Room caught me adjusting myself. It makes me feel like a little creep. I’m blessed. I guess that means I’m blessed. I had to adjust myself; it’s the outfit. But it’s the truth…you understand that problem. It’s nothing to be ashamed about. I had fun.”
Some had other thoughts as another user commented, "He wasn't adjusting.....he was grabbing it!!! Five times during the show!!!" while another chimed in stating, "He did it again later in the show. Dude must have had itchy underwear." There is no doubt that the fourth episode of the show did not work in his favor as he was eliminated from the show.
Odom and his partner Peta Murgatroyd decided to perform Viennese waltz on the ballroom stage hoping to impress the judges. Odom and Murgatroyd have always been in the bottom two in terms of scores and audience voting but everyone thought things might be different for them after their last performance.
Unfortunately, the dance did not play in their favor as yet again the pair were seen as the bottom two pairs. Along with Odom, Karamo Brown was also in the bottom two but the judges decided to save her and let go of Odom. Odom admitted that he never expected himself to leave the show early.
"First I want to thank my sister @petamurgatroyd for being so patient and kind to me during this time. Thank you to all the other cast members and dancers that joined me on this journey with DTWS. Even though it ended a little early for me, I will consider all of you family. Thank you to all the fans for tour support," he wrote.
