'Dancing with the Stars' Finale: Fans claim Kel Mitchell and Ally Brooke were 'robbed' of their trophy, blame 'The Bachelor' for it
Fans thought Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson, as well as Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber had much better performances.
Hannah Brown and her partner Alan Bersten have been crowned the champions of the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 28. In the finale on Monday night, the duo set the stage on fire as they danced to Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl", as the judges raved about their performance. However, fans thought that Hannah did not deserve to win - especially because Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson, as well as Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber had much better performances.
Brown and Bersten earned a total of 30/30 for their Freestyle, an improvement over the 28/30 they earned for their recreated Viennese Waltz to Taylor Swift's "Lover." "Anybody else notice how everyone ran to Kel and didn't celebrate with Hannah? That was pretty telling to me ," one fan said, while another added, "Everyone’s around Kel, while Hannah and Alan basically celebrate alone, but I’m sure that’s not a reflection of the fact Kel’s danced better ALL SEASON"
Another pointed out that both Ally and Kel had been "robbed" of the Mirror trophy, "Come on, #DWTS, Kel clearly should’ve won! I guess ABC needs to promote their upcoming season of Bachelor. #sham #AdRevenue". "Sad to see Ally get third despite being the best dancer for weeks. The popularity contest component really sucks," one fan said while another said, "Ally and Kel were robbed....."
Fans also accused the season of being "rigged". "I have an idea for next season. What if the best dancer actually won??" one fan said, This is rigged, the judges need to wear some glasses." "The only reason Hannah won is that she was on the bachelor and bachelorette and going back to the bachelor," another fan said.
Lauren and Gleb came out fourth, Ally and Sasha came third place while Kel and Witney missed the trophy by inches, coming out in second place.
