'DWTS' Season 31 Finale: Were judges easy on Gabby Windey? Fans slam 'The Bachelorette' star as 'silly'
It seems that the judges overlooked some obvious mistakes
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gabby Windey has always been the apple of the eye of both Bachelor Nation and 'Dancing with the Stars' fans. She and Val Chmerkovskiy danced the cha-cha to 'I Like It (Like That)' by Pete Rodriguez. Although the couple's performance was described as "slow" and "stiff," they still managed to get a perfect score on the finale night: 40/40.
Now for the jurors' comments, which seem to have overlooked some obvious errors. All four jury members went easy on the " Bachelorette" star. Derek Hough thought Gabby's performance exuded "calmness and strength." Also, Bruno Tonioli thought she was "sexy" Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman thought the rhythm of the dance was great, a perfect blend of great technique and great chemistry. Fans wondered how the judges could ignore Gabby's flaws in her performance. Many thought Gabby was dancing too slow for the Redemption Round. Also, some fans criticized the Bachelor Nation actress for being "goofy" and "silly" in the last episode.
A fan wondered why 'DWTS' Season 31 panelists never point out Gabby's mistakes but do the opposite for other cast members. "Why are the judges so easy on Gabby? They never call out her mistakes like Wayne and Shangela," wondered a fan. Another fan slammed the star, "Every time Gabby opens her mouth I feel like Val gets nerve outs This man is constantly trying to save her in these interviews." A fan speculated the reason for Gabby being slow in her performance, saying, "I love Gabby, but why did it feel like there were weights on her ankles? I feel like she kills it every week but it was almost too slow." Another 'DWTS' fan slammed, "Gabby being silly and goofy to the very end is just quality. Her energy is made for television."

Some fans took note of Gabby's dress in the cha-cha performance, saying it was not up to the mark. A fan took to 'DWTS' official Facebook page to comment, "Her outfit was a big no for me. They should have given her fringe or something that accentuated her hips. This hid them and made it look more clunky. I know she got tens but the outfit made it hard to see her hips really cha-cha moving." Another agreed, saying, "agreed! The first thing I said was “I don’t love her outfit”! Didn’t accentuate her body, for this dance especially." Furthermore, a fan claimed, "her shoe fringes were quite distracting!!" "second time they did it. Hated that skirt," wrote another fan.
Gabby Windey ended up being declared the runner-up of 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31 and Charli D'Amelio was declared the Season's champion. With Season 31 ending, fans are now eagerly eyeing for 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 32.
