                            'Dancing With the Stars': Will fans' intense dislike for Sean Spicer and Ray Lewis propel them to the finale?

With the premiere of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 28 just a few hours away, we can’t help but speculate what lies ahead for us on this popular reality dancing show.

Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary, who served in 2017’s Trump administration is one of the least-liked persons on the internet. Twitter has been abuzz about how his presence on the show and normalizing him has fans all riled up. A fan wrote, “Who TF thought #seanspicer would be a great addition to the cast of the new season of Dancing With the Stars tho??? Every time I look at him I just think about how he worked for one of the most corrupt Administrations ever the history of America #abc #DWTS28 #wtf”. Another fan tweeted, “It's a strange world we live in when I feel compelled to take a moral stand against... Dancing with The Stars(?). But normalizing Sean Spicer? No thanks."

Contestant Ray Lewis, a former NFL player who has been accused of murdering two men back in 2000, will be on the show. After he pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice, the charges against him were dropped. He got away with one year of probation and paid a fine of $250,000 to NFL for “conduct detrimental to the league." A fan who appeared to be upset with the problematic casting tweeted, “Holy shit. Dancing with the Stars got both Sean Spicer AND Ray Lewis?? Were OJ Simpson and Bill Cosby busy?”

It is a well-known fact that the producers of these reality shows will go to any lengths to make sure that their TRPs peak. Since these contestants are receiving a lot of hate, the audience will watch the show and try to vote them off soon. But to ensure that the surge in the viewership remains, the showrunners might most likely make sure that Sean Spicer and Ray Lewis reach until the very end. While we are unsure of Spicer’s dancing skills, Lewis has the moves which could help him win the title.
