If no one has said it, I’ll go ahead. Dancing with the Stars is not the same without Tom Bergeron. He was funny. He was an experienced personality. And he was replaced by Tyra Banks so she could wear elaborate outfits and smize at the audience.
Tom hosted DWTS for 28 seasons. Over that long period of time, he was able to create many memories. Recently he took to Instagram to reflect on some good times. He also shared what he misses most about the dance show days.
It wasn’t learning new hot moves or meeting exciting people. Heavy. shared Tom’s unexpected revelation. He posted a photo of himself flying through the air a la Luke Skywalker and said, “I’m often asked what I miss most about the dance show. It’s easy… the zip lining. #throwback”
Mirrorball champ extraordinaire Alfonso Ribeiro commented under Tom’s post. He wrote, “I remember when I got stuck. Not the best memory.” I guess we can’t all get our jollies from randomly flying over people’s heads.
The executive producer that fired Tom only spent five seasons at DWTS and is already gone. Tom and co-host Erin Andrews had no desire to leave, and many viewers still prefer the duo over Tyra heading the show.
The professional dancers also didn’t appreciate the structural alterations the now-departed executive producer made. He swapped out the episode opening dances for a spectacular entrance for Tyra to show off a spangly frock. #justicefortomanderin
If you miss Tom as much as I do, don’t fret. He has “multiple TV projects” standing by. Dancing with the Stars will be back later in 2023.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK DWTS SHOULD BRING TOM BACK? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT TYRA AS THE HOST? WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WHEN TOM WAS FIRED?
