'Dancing with the Stars' season 27: Fans outraged at DeMarcus Ware's elimination, but think John Schneider's was apt
Fans think despite John Schneider's scores being not all that impressive, he still deserved to stay on the show more than fellow contestants Bobby Bones and Joe Amabile do.
This week's Dancing with the Stars has managed to get a tad bit controversial once again with its elimination rounds - which sparked off debate online yet again. As the remaining eight contestants performed for this Monday's Country Night themed episode, there was the possibility of a double elimination looming over their heads. And that's exactly what happened. But while fans were aware that something like this was inevitable, owing to few weeks remaining before the big finale, what has managed to get them so torn over the elimination are the contestants that went home on Monday - DeMarcus Ware, and John Schneider.
If the judges' scores received by individual contestants are to be tallied, fans believe that it should have been Bobby Bones and 'Grocery Store' Joe Amabile going home on Country Night. In fact, their performances have consistently ranked on the lower end of the scoreboard, and among the remaining contestants that danced in the last episode, Bones and Amabile were still the weakest links. Granted, the two of them have shown considerable improvement and progress alike in their journey on DWTS, but people still believe that they should have been the ones more at risk of going home.
UPSET, over the results of last nights @dancingabc elimination 2 of the coolest men,true gentleman, w/hearts of gold.@demarcusware— Danelle Umstead (@DanelleUmstead) November 6, 2018
Love you guys. “See “ you two in couple weeks at finale 💛✨💃🏻🕺🏾🕺#DWTS27 #DWTS pic.twitter.com/m1dYYBAmkG
But this outrage doesn't stop at that, as fans have also established that even though they had sort of seen Schneider's elimination coming, Ware should have been nowhere close to elimination, especially after the back to back stellar performances he had showcased on this season of the show. Partnered with pro-Lindsay Arnold, Ware's dancing skills have been spot on since day one, where he emerged as the top scorer of the night. And that aside, he's also a former NFL pro and as is known, athletes and footballers have always performed remarkably well in the show's history - including four past Mirrorball trophy champions.
But when it came to Schneider however, the fans didn't seem all that heated about his sudden elimination from the show. Despite being in the lower ranks of the scoreboard, right next to Bones and Amabile - Schneider's journey on this season of DWTS had been pretty smooth, courtesy all the votes he kept getting showered with. And this resembles both Bones and Amabile's journey on the show too, as they also have never faced jeopardy even though they would score the lowest more than once.
America already fucked up voting by keeping Grocery Store Joe over literal human sunshine Demarcus Ware on #DWTS so PLEASE DON’T DO IT AGAIN and #VOTE TOMORROW 👍🏼👍🏼🗳‼️ https://t.co/Oqr2vy761s pic.twitter.com/EKa2MUm2K7— Sherry (@slchen_) November 6, 2018
As of now, both Bones and Amabile's success on the show has only been received with harsh criticism on social media, with followers of the show not shying from pointing out that the two of them have some very firm fan following which makes sure their journey continues. But at the same time, they feel Ware has been pretty much 'robbed' by this shocking elimination, even though Schneider's was aptly deserved.
