'Dancing With The Stars': Tom Bergeron is missed on the show as fans say 'Tyra Banks is an awful host'
Tom Bergeron was replaced as the host for the show and fans are not impressed with how Tyra Banks is taking the show forward
Tom Bergeron had been the face of 'Dancing With The Stars' for a long time. He had managed to keep everyone hooked to the performances with his commentary, but sadly, it had come to an end this year. Tom broke the news about him leaving the show on his social media and left the internet divided.
While some thought it would be a good change, others were quick to add how the show would not be the same. After seeing Tom host the show for many seasons, they knew that he was going to take away a huge part of the show's enjoyment along with him. "Just informed @DancingABCwill be continuing without me. It's been an incredible 15-year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I'm grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?" he wrote on his Twitter.
Quickly after this, ABC also released a statement of their own in which they said he was being replaced for "creative new direction". "Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the 'Dancing with the Stars' family. He departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom," read the statement.
Give me Tom Bergeron back! Tyra Banks is a horrible host for this show.#DWTS— Big Brother Alliance (@BigBroAlliance) September 15, 2020
After a lot of speculation, it was finally revealed that Tyra Banks would be replacing the host. This was not the first time Tyra was going to act as a host. The model had tried her hand at hosting for 'America's Got Talent' and had managed to woo the audience. Unfortunately, fans were not impressed with her hosting when it came to 'Dancing With The Stars'.
"Omg...Tyra Banks is an awful host!! Please bring back @Tom_Bergeron!! Tyra’s hosting stinks worse than a skunk...disgusting!!" read one comment. "Give me Tom Bergeron back! Tyra Banks is a horrible host for this show," said another. "So, this whole Tyra as a host thing is a prank, right? Tom and Erin will be back next week, yes??? PLEASE! Sorry, Tyra!" read another comment.
First of all @Tom_Bergeron gave a bit of calm and dad quality to #dwts. A pandemic when we need some of that in our lives is not the time to change hosts. And we know you’re new Tyra. Don’t keep repeating it trying to prove you’ve been a fan of the show.— Dr. Janet Johnson (@janetnews) September 15, 2020
